    4. I would say this book is a step above a cozy mystery because it is jam packed with action, multiple suspects and red herrings Maybe a touch too much because you have to pay attention because it jumps quickly from scene to scene as Tuck transports himself to see what s happening with different characters and at different locations Surprisingly, I knew who the killer was because I just had a personal reaction to the individual early on, I don t think you can figure out who dunnit by reading the bo [...]

    10. TJ O Connor uses an unusual conceit with his first Gumshoe Ghost mystery Having a dead cop solve his own murder is that conceit Combining a ghost story with a standard police procedural made the story stand out from the crowd O Connor has a writing style that is easy to enjoy yet keeps the reader guessing until the final scene With enough red herrings sprinkled throughout to fill a case of sardine tins, the reader is not left out in the cold A careful read might reveal the murderer, but it s not [...]
