Tracy reviews Alex Morgan’s ‘Murder at the Green Lantern’ (Corey Shaw Mystery 2). (The book was published by the author on July 9th 2014, 189 pgs aprox Third Addition).
Why I read this book: The reason I read this book was because I loved book 1 in the series and wanted more.
After a fetish party at a gay bar in Washington, DC, a young man is murdered and left nailed to a St. Andrew’s cross. Paranormal gay sleuth Corey Shaw thinks someone has passed a divine judgment on him, and may be sending a signal to other gays in the city. The mystery leads him on a trail from a leather bar in the nation’s capital, to Boston, and to the hallowed halls of the U.S. Senate.
Following on from his first mystery Breathless, Corey Shaw returns for more erotically-charged thrills and steamy suspense.
My review – 10/10 Pots of Gold
The cover and title of this book are perfect. From the title you know you are going to get at least one murder.
I found myself very fascinated with the whole plot. I love a paranormal book, these books are different from anything I have read before.
When I started reading this book I was hopeing it was as rivitering as Breathless (book1). I didn’t think it would be better but it was. The whole Who Done It had me wondering till nearly the end. I was wrong in my thoughts too many times to count. The twists and turns keep you wanting to read more through out the whole book. There is a BDSM aspect but no actual BDSM in this book. There is very little sex, which I found a good thing as I think it would of over shadowed the plot. There was a lot going on at all times making the book very fulfilling and enjoyable. I was surprised at who the murders were and why the murder took place. I like books that keep me guessing to the end.
I love the MC Corey, he does get himself in some real messes. He needs someone to ground him so that he thinks of his own safety for once, but saying that at the end of the day he is a Cop.
Did this book fulfill all my expectations? Oh yes and much more, I even got a OMG I never would of guessed that, which is good. I can’t wait to read more in this series.
