law enforcement, murder investigation, no-gratuitous-erotica
Solid writing with characters so well drawn that I swear that I used to work along side them! All due diligence noted in the investigation, and no rabbits from hats. No gratuitous erotica or graphic violence.
I found it on Whispersync sale courtesy of Book Gorilla.

Clever short police procedural
I am surprised by the quality of this 4 hour detective mystery. The author is new to me as is the narrator. The author is obviously committed to writing detective mysteries without any use of crude language and without any sex scenes. That is unimportant to me; the quality of the story is. The author delivers.

Would you try another book from John C. Dalglish and/or Rich McVicar?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Mildly intriguing was how the young detective managed to prove the guilt of his suspect. Least interesting was the first 2/3 of the book--so many cliches and tired writing. If I weren't out of reach of wifi that day and unable to download a new book, I would never have stuck with it.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Yes. Once more with feeling.
What character would you cut from Boston Homicide: A Clean Suspense Mystery?
The cliched stereotype of the detective's wife was a disaster. She "misses" him terribly with less than one week on the job? Really?? If she can't be written with at least 2 ounces of spunk and courage, make him single next time. She sounds like what a guy thinks of a pregnant woman when he has never had more than a 90-second conversation with her.
Any additional comments?
This author should read a couple of JP Beaumont stories (or something!) to learn how to write dialogue that doesn't put me to sleep. It sounds like the people on "Househunters."

Goody too shoe book
Good plot but everything is so sweet and sugary sounding. Seems like the reader was adding to the sweetness.
Seems like a sea saw and everything is good and kind. Good plot. But sugar coating was bad. Cops are suppose to be tough.
I will try another book but if it same reader forget it.
