    This is the 2nd book in the series and all I can say is that I love this author He knows how to ratchet up the tension If you like mysteries I highly recommend this series although I would start with book 1 because the case Dave Gurney was on in that book is mentioned a lot in this book Plus it's a damn good book IMO

    John Verdon's Dave Gurney is a nicely developed character I've come to appreciate in this series He's a retired NYC detective with lots of past success a nice post retirement with his wife in a bucolic country setting outside the city and seemingly too much time on his hands He keeps getting pulled into his past life which leads to problems with his present life if that makes any sense I've read the series out of order

    This book is Think of a NumberIt's structurally identical and the plot is so similar as to make the identity of the murderer obvious from very early on assuming you have already read Verdon's first novel which I have So that's a bit disappointing but it's a gripping read anyway because it becomes a howdunnit? not

    710 As others have noted this would be much better if it were a hundred pages shorter His writing can be uite good at times and I see unrealized potential Does every book have to be psycho serial killers?

    After two books in this series I'm beginning to see a pattern Dave Gurney is still trying to retire as a cop and his wife is very encouraging often demanding but she usually relents because he's just so good at it The other police all seem to

Κράτα τα μάτια σου κλειστάΜια έκπληξη σε περιμένειΗ Τζίλιαν Πέρι ένα κακομαθημένο πλουσιοκόριτσο παντρεύεται τον διάσημο ψυχίατρο Σκοτ Άστον Μπροστά της ανοίγεται ένας ευτυχισμένος δρόμος όμως κατά τη διάρκεια της γαμήλιας δεξίωσης βρίσκεται άγρια δολοφονημένη Τα στοιχεία οδηγούν σε αδιέξοδοΕίναι ώ?. I enjoyed Verdon s first novel Think of a Number so much that I immediately got hold of a copy of this book a follow up story featuring retired NYPD cop Dave Gurney The background is that Dave retired from the force in his late forties after having enjoyed a glittering career as a star detective He is highly logical in his approach and loves the challenge of solving complex puzzles He s now living in the Catskills in upstate NY with his wife Madeleine She wants Dave to stop resurrecting his career as a master crime solver and enjoy retirement in this rural idyll There is certainly a degree of tension here and it adds an interesting second layer to these stories particularly as Madeleine is the ueen of the caustic one liner Another great element is the involvement of an ex colleague of Gurney s Jack Hardwick whose gruff no nonsense outpourings conflict nicely with Dave s considered articulations At times their exchanges had me laughing out loudHere Dave is asked to take a look at the case of a decapitated bride It seems that the unfortunate victim had her head separated from her body on her wedding day A strange case indeed And having visited the scene of the crime and reviewed the video recordings of the day s events Dave remains confused as to what actually took place It seems that a Mexican immigrant who had be working with the wealthy bridegroom is the man in the frame but he s gone missing and there are a number of strands to the investigation that don t uite marry up for Gurney The cast here are a wacky bunch and the whole thing is written in a slightly tongue in cheek fashion and yet the mystery is an intriguing one and it sucked me in very early onI suppose I could say that I somewhat predicted how this one would turn out but there were also a number of surprises that I d not foreseen It s a satisfying crime romp in it s own right based purely on the plotline but the real pleasure here is in the uality of the story telling the development of the lead characters and in their interactions I really think that Verdon is a class act In his first two books he s demonstrated an ability to create complex storylines replete with an interestingly diverse cast of characters and in Gurney he has brought to life someone I definitely want to see of In fact I ve already secured copies of books 3 and 4 and I have a feeling I ll work through the rest of the series in pretty short order If you enjoy Jeffery Deaver Lawrence Block or John Sandford but haven t yet sampled these books then I d definitely say it s something worth
