Published August 18th 2016 by Uncorking a Story | 266 pages
A retired detective short on time is looking to right a wrong in this "Serial meets Gone Girl" thriller.
The Uncorking a Murder podcast took the nation by storm. Farrah Graham, the creator and host, struck a nerve with listeners through a ten-episode serial that combined investigative journalism, old fashioned radio drama, and compelling storytelling.
Farrah's loyal listeners and advertisers are hungry for season two! While Farrah and her partner Melody struggle to agree on a topic for the second season of the podcast, their intern takes a call from a retired detective in Ft. Lauderdale pitching his request to focus on a case he was involved with five years earlier.
Interested to hear why a retired detective is driven to have a conviction overturned, Farrah follows her curiosity down to Ft. Lauderdale where she uncovers a conspiracy involving a narcissistic CEO fueled by greed, a US Senator, and a wrongly imprisoned man; but will she live long enough to uncork the story?
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
This murder mystery has an unexpected twist!
Cleverly written in two parts by author, Michael Carlon, the reader will not want to put it down!
This intriguing tale of a man with a "condition" which leads him to the center of a serious situation. A situation he is determined to correct and see that "justice is served".
In this suspenseful, poignant story, the law. media, investigations and perseverance of several individuals work together for good.
The character development was done very well, the scenes were also portrayed in a way which was easily visualizes. The mystique slowly built leaving the reader actively trying to figure out the "story behind it all".
This is highly recommended for Book Clubs and higher education levels, due to so many key discussion points found within these pages.
**Beware: there is occasional profanity used.
I offer a Five Stars rating
*This book was gifted to me with no expectations for a positive review. This is my honest review.
PERSONAL "Spoiler" NOTE:
This account presents the belief that there is good and bad in all lifestyles. Some appear to be honorable, but are not. Some seem peculiar, or appear strange, yet, are honorable. Then, there are still other lifestyles where questionable activities abound and participating characters seem less than desirable, yet, good and integrity can still dwell within.
