Gripping and Brilliant

ger-murder-and-more-2

I can’t exactly say what I was expecting because it wasn’t what happened at all, anywhere near in fact. I loved how fast paced it was, as soon as I begun reading I was pulled into the drama and it was unexpected at that.

I was at first concerned that I wouldn’t be able to make sense of all that was going on as this book is a part of a series ( Carson Reno Mystery Series) but as Gerald explained to me this book stands alone and everything ended up being crystal clear so I easily understood everything.

The pictures involved in the pages of the book were really nice and a great change from the usual block of text. I like how not only they split up the text but also helped you imagine the story unfolding in these places because after all each and every one of the photos were of either places or of objects used in the story which helped enhance the overall immersion.

I have to admit I didn’t see any of it coming, i was always greeted with a new surprise just as the characters were.

The characters were portrayed well enough for you to automatically know how they’d react in different situations based upon their behaviours and such. For the characters who are involved in this story whether they have large parts or small parts in the story really interested me.

The plot was very much a great one, it was a very well thought out and well written. Part of me thinks only Gerald could of pulled off such an extraordinary plot line like he did. Although to some the plot may seen far fetched or whatever, it was very gripping and brilliant.

I have to give this book a 5/5. It was truly brilliant and gripping all the way through. There are no negatives from me. I will be checking out more of Gerald’s work when I have free time.

It started only a few days ago – which now seemed like forever.

Ger dead end with bloddy hand

A filthy mixture of snow, ice, Arkansas mud and blood filled my mouth – the gritty mess was making it almost impossible to breathe. Without opening my eyes, and trying not to choke, I rolled my head to the left and spit the nauseating mixture onto the bright snow.  Apparently my nose was broken, because after relieving my mouth of the irritation, it quickly filled with the warm and sweet taste of blood – my blood.  Oddly, despite the trauma of the last few minutes, my thoughts and head were remarkably clear – making me wonder if I might be in the early stages of shock – I’d never been there before.

     Silence was everywhere, only disturbed by the sound of light snow falling, and thankfully covering my dry lips. I licked at the welcome moisture and slowly opened my eyes – not knowing what I might see.

     A fuzzy gray sky, white falling snow and fading daylight stared back at me – looking down at where I lay – in a dirty, wet ditch, somewhere in Arkansas.

Lilly Longstreet (L.L.) had the kind of beauty that could stop a train; although if you were with Lilly, you should never be anywhere near a train!

Ger dead end with gun.png

Today she was wearing a familiar black pants suit, with legs flared enough to cover medium heels, and a white blouse without the top three buttons in place. Her breasts weren’t large, but they were certainly enjoying the exposure! I saw no jewelry, other than her trademark black gemstone ring, and she was sporting the recognizable perfume that made sure she got noticed by anyone who had a nose!

‘Loose Lilly’ some people called her.  I ‘d never had more than a professional relationship with L.L; but I suspect Lilly knew her way around the bedroom – or any other secluded spot that met with her approval!

   “Where do you hide it?” I asked giving her the trademark Carson Reno smile.

   “Would you like to find out?” Lilly grinned.

   “Yes…probably, but I was just curious where you hide your little gun in that kind of outfit.”

   “Use your imagination,” she winked.

   “I am, and it’s clouding all my other thoughts!”

   “Well, clear your head handsome – we need to talk.”
