Publisher's Summary

"A love for sex and poetry were the only things my daughter got out of college," an elderly lady says. Now, she runs an escort service. One of her girls was murdered last year. Did my daughter have anything to do with it? Scott Kaven, a former Houston homicide detective turned private eye, takes on the case involving a Green Bay, Wisconsin, escort service and its striking owner. With the confidence and experience of a successful cop, a smart ass attitude, and a sharp sense of humor of his own, Kaven gets things done. He gets past the logjam the law enforcement couldn't surmount but he also finds himself on a hit list because of his involvement in the case. Full of action and mystery, this first of a new series is an exciting start for a set of engaging characters.

Good story, original plot

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The plot was pretty original and it kept me guessing as to who the killer was and why. It was fast paced and had just the right amount of back story and detail given for what was going on. The story was very well written. The narrator was easy to listen to. It was well worth my time.

A Short, But Good Debut P.I. Novel

I found “The Lovecraft Murders.” to be a pretty decent who-done-it from author Jack R. Stanley. Scott Kaven is a former Houston, Texas homicide detective. Now a private investigator, Kaven takes on a case involving an escort service. The story is on the short side so it moves fast with a satisfying amount of action in it. But where the book really shines, in my opinion, is with Daniel Dorse’s narration. Mr. Dorse has one of those voices that was meant for audiobook work. It also surprised me in the beginning because it is a mature voice that, at first, made me assume the lead character was a much older man. My mistake. In any event, Mr. Dorse’s voice, as well as his narration skills, just pull you into this story. I definitely enjoyed “The Lovecraft Murders” and look forward to the next book in the Scott Kaven mystery series.

Finally, this audio book was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audio Book Boom.
