Book Tour: A Fine Year for Murder by Lauren Carr
A Fine Year for Murder - Lauren Carr

Lauren Carr has brought you another thriller of a story. A Fine Year for Murder is a dozy of a mystery and gut wrenching. No has any ideas that Jessica as seen a family be murdered. When Dallas Walker start talking about a case that see is investing the case called Pine Creek Massacre.


I loved the story and the way it was laid out. Jessica is dealing with nightmares, and things get more intense when something happens to young girls. What is triggering her nightmares? It a book you can not put down once you start to read it. All of Lauren Carr books are like that. She makes you want more and leaves to read her next book.

The Murder Pit
The Murder Pit (A Moose River Mystery Book 1) - Jeff Shelby

by Jeff Shelby

 

It’s been a long time since I read something I could not bear to put down.

 

Fiction written in conversational style. I forgot the author was neither a woman, nor a native Minnesotan. Though the little extra stereotypical Minnesota-speak, a “you betcha” that seemed a little forced should have reminded me. *snicker*

 

Quick, easy-to-read chapters with just enough detail for your mind to fill in the blanks, the small-town murder mystery in Moose River pulls you right along.  Amusing and completely believable, especially if you’ve ever lived in a small town in Minnesota.

 

If I ever go old house-hunting, there are a few extra items I’ll be checking out, just to make sure I don’t buy my own Murder Pit.

Dead Dame on the Floor: A Hank Bradshaw ... Dead Dame on the Floor: A Hank Bradshaw Short Story - Mick Hunter

Dead Dame on the Floor: A Hank Bradshaw Short Story by Mick Hunter contains a lot in only fourteen pages. It's about Hank Bradshaw's hearing his friend, Nancy, get murdered while he's on the phone with her. He wants to find out what happened and punish who did it. I gave it four stars.

 

I received a complimentary copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Bum Rap by Paul Levine
Bum Rap - Paul Levine

Bum Rap by Paul Levine is a page-turning legal thriller about an attorney accused of murder. I gave it five stars because it had snappy dialogue, just the right amount of sexual tension between the characters and is an intriguing story.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Failure of Justice: A Brutal Murder, An Obsessed Cop, Six Wrongful Convictions - John Ferak

Beatrice is a small town in Nebraska. The region is dominated by livestock and farming. Industries such as a dairy plant, windmill, and metal manufacturers were long time employers but the backbone to the local economy was a state run institution for people diagnosed with profound and severe mental retardation now called the Nebraska State Developmental Center. Beatrice has long been regarded a pleasant and safe place to call home.then a man kept breaking into elderly women’s homes to rape them. Four times in six weeks but he had not been caught. Police did not know where this serial predator would strike again. There was a widow- Helen- who lived in the old telephone building . Her sister and brother in law- Ivan- lived across the hall. Then the brother in law went to check on Helen and found her dead. The winter scarf wrapped around Helen’s face had cut off her air supply. Helen became Beatrice’s first homicide victim og 1985. The town had lost a loving woman a subhuman man had desecrated helen’s body. Helen had been raped. The state police were called in to help with the murder. They found a rip in the carpet in Helen’s kitchen. There was also some hair on helen’s nightgown left by the killer. Bruce Allen Smith was on the list of murder suspects. Then peter Klismet was called in as he was  a specially trained profiler and he had become the profiling coordinator covering Nebraska and Iowa. but Bruce was eliminated as a suspect by lab tech Joyce Gilchrist from blood testing. Then six arrest were made but why. Then all six were convicted of murder and sent to prison for Helen’s murder. These people were wrongly convicted. Some had been in prison for twenty years but now with DNA all six were proven to be innocent. This was the largest group proven innocent in the country's history. There was a former cop who wants to make a name for himself and he doesn’t care who he takes down as long as it made him big. Five of the six people were threatened with the electric chair and in fear confessed and took a plea deal. The one who went to trial was convicted but never quit fighting that he was innocent.

I read this book and was horrified at how these six people were coerced into confessing to a murder they didn’t commit from fear of death. Also the length of time these people were in prison is just sad. While the actual killer was still free. This was a well written book and showed some of the flaws in the justice system. This book was a little long and dragged at times but not enough I didn’t finish it. I didn’t even know this had happened in my lifetime.I recommend.
