A Book Review

As I mentioned in this post, I received my second book from Bethany House. I absolutely loved the first book I got so I was rather excited about this one.

My excitement didn't last.

This book is apparently the third of a Roland March series. I haven't read the first two and I don't think I'd read any subsequent books. This one involved gun running, Mexican cartels, FBI conspiracy, etc. It just wasn't my cup of tea.

The story started out very promising. A body is found with a missing head. Both hands have been skinned (de-gloved) and a pointing finger could be a clue. Enter Detective Roland March.

I was intrigued all through the first half of the book. Once the storyline took off with the Mexican cartels, I got lost and my interest waned. I did plug on and finished the book, but it was a difficult read.

Overall I feel the book is miss titled. Plenty of people had everything to hide. What irritated me most was, while the initial homicide was solved, the identity of the victim was never determined. A better title might be "Nothing Resolved."

Note: I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for my review. These opinions are my own; I was not required to write a positive review, nor was I compensated for this review.
