MURDER & MAYHEM AT AN ISLAND RETREAT — A REVIEW

51XVz8Su2yL._SY346_Halloween is approaching, along with Archie Sheridan’s birthday. Everyone is on alert for the strange happenings that come with the holiday. Costumes, parties, and masks.

Then a murder of a DEA agent sets in motion a whole series of events that will lead many of the characters of Let Me Go (Archie Sheridan & Gretchen Lowell) to an island and a web of intrigue that will keep the reader rapidly turning pages.

For interspersed within this whole network is the elusive, yet ongoing, presence of Gretchen Lowell. And an undercurrent that exists between Gretchen and Archie, like a symbiotic tie.

For those who have not read any of the other books in this series, Gretchen Lowell is a renowned serial killer who has been captured numerous times, but always has escaped. And Archie Sheridan is the detective determined to catch her, while also maintaining a kind of push-pull relationship with her.

With all of its twists and turns, this story brings additional peeks into Gretchen’s world and the strange way that she has of being evil, while also with a bit of humanity mixed in. In a way, I wish that this game of cat and mouse could finally end…but in another way, I do like to see what will happen next. And as the game continues, so do the stories that involve the recurring characters, like Susan, the journalist, and Henry, another detective and cohort. Four stars.

    • I missed the last book or two, so maybe that’s good. I read the ones with “heart” in the title…Heartsick, Sweetheart, and Evil at Heart.

      Thanks for stopping by, Diane….hope you enjoy this one.
