My Rating ~ 3 bites and a nibble
An Organization agent has been murdered at a hush-hush corporate retreat featuring the Baphamet Group, so they send Ishmael Jones to take over the security for the event, protect the VIPs, and find her killer. Not necessarily in that order.
Why does this author insist on dumbing down his books? Is he making a statement? Or am I just not getting the humor? I love the world, Ishmael’s character, and the murder mystery, but the stupidity is taking a toll on my interest in continuing this series. There is some humor and some twists and turns, but his girlfriend Penny is a twit and the dumb shit that happens is getting old right quick and in a hurry, ruining an otherwise excellent supernatural story revolving around a murder mystery. After three books with basically the same cocktail of stupid shit, I’m going to make a wild guess and say it’s done on purpose. It’s not impressive. Anyway, I may check the next story out when it’s pubbed, but then again, I may not.
Extra Review: My son also has read this series and he agrees that the stupid shit is just…stupid and it’s getting on his nerves. He really likes Ishmael though. For this book, he figured out the murderer, but then was thrown for a loop and then figured it out again. He enjoys the mysteries and will most likely continue with the series.
