Title: Murder at the green lantern
Author: Alex Morgan
Publisher: Wilde City
Rating: 4.0 of 5 Stars
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
This is the first time I have read something by this author and I really enjoyed this murder mystery. The main investigator is a member of the psionic corps., a group of paranormally abled detectives. One of their abilities is very useful to the author, as they can teleport, which enables murders and investigations to take place at different centres without the problem of transport. Initially a bit confusing, as I hadn’t read the previous books in this series, I appreciated the speeding up of the investigative questioning, again because of the teleporting, and the fact that the detective’s homelife could be included despite being in a different US city.
The mystery was well plotted and the players enabled some believable red herrings to be offered up to the reader. I always like it if I don’t not guess the murderer too quickly. In Murder at The Green Lantern I might have guessed the perpetrator early on but not the reasons.
There were a few problems with this novella, which was a shame as they did pull me from the story. The editing/proofreading missed some pretty important errors,
Senator Wharton knew that Aiden was the bar?
is definitely confusing and there were several editing errors of this type. In addition a very confusing paragraph where the wrong character name was used and it took me a few reads to realise what was being said. In a mystery where you are trying to find clues, it is a definite problem for me and one which should have been addressed.
Overall though an enjoyable novella and I will probably download the previous titles in this series.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
