It's a #throwbackthursday and I am re-posting a blog post from August 6, 2013. It's from my old blog, Writing My Dreams. Other than being an author of course, I am an avid book lover. I often posted book reviews on my blog back then. So here's a re-post of a book review for "Back On Murder." Because of course, I love mysteries.
BACK ON MURDER Series: A Roland March Mystery
Det. Roland March is a homicide cop on his way out. But when he's the only one at a crime scene to find evidence of a missing female victim, he's given one last chance to prove himself. Before he can crack the case, he's transferred to a new one that has grabbed the spotlight--the disappearance of a famous Houston evangelist's teen daughter.
With the help of a youth pastor with a guilty conscience who navigates the world of church and faith, March is determined to find the missing girls while proving he's still one of Houston's best detectives.
Another murder mystery on the shelf! I love the mysteries, because they keep my mind engaged, keep me guessing, and the adrenaline flowing, as I attempt to solve them. In this novel, we encounter Detective Roland March, who is a washed out homicide detective, barely hanging on because of a tragic incident in his past. When he identifies evidence at the scene of a crime that spotlights a potential missing female victim, he is once again at the center of a homicide case. As he finds himself getting closer to the truth, he is suddenly transferred to missing persons, and is tasked with finding the missing teen daughter of a missing Houston evangelist.
Roland believes the two cases are somehow connected; however, he is having difficulty convincing the powers that be and his fellow officers of the connection. As things spiral out of control, March suddenly switches the focus of his investigation to the least likely suspects. His identification of these potential suspects endangers his life, his career, and possibly his family. He is finally given the support that he needs to make his connection, but with a limited amount of time. As the clock is running out, he must connect the dots and complete the puzzle before another murder needs to be solved...his own.
I really enjoyed this book, it was a constant cat-and-mouse game throughout the novel and kept challenging my problem-solving skills. The suspense was heightened throughout the book, and there were many times when I thought I had solved the mystery, just to find I was wrong. Mr. Bertrand's book was suspenseful, captivating, and entertaining.
The book was an easy read, smooth transitions, and wonderful editing. I would rate this book a 4- The Real Thang!
