Blurb: A Lifting the Veil Story
When PI Sam Garrett is hired by eccentric billionaire toy maker and child genius Mozart “Mo” Chance—after his apparent suicide in the hills of San Francisco—Sam takes the case out of sheer curiosity. In a world where the Veil lifted a decade ago and exposed mythical beings living among humans, Sam faces a big challenge as the mystery surrounding the case deepens.
The inheritors of Mo’s fortune—the uncle, the butler, the nanny, and the bodyguard—all possess secrets, and some are willing to protect them at any cost. The trouble is that Sam’s partner and lover, Rex Ford, is suddenly under suspicion as well.
Clouded by doubt, Sam continues to search for answers as tapestries of crimes begin to unravel and powers beyond his imagination are unleashed. If Mo endured horrific nightmares about monsters under his bed, there’s no telling what dangers await a nosy PI. What dangers lurk in this darkness? Sam is about to find out.
Review: This is a well written mythical murder mystery and is the fourth book in the Lifting the Veil series. Although I’ve not read any of the first three books in this series, I enjoyed this read and it works well as a standalone. It’s a magical mystery with a great blending of human and mythical characters.
Sam Garrett the Private Investigator with perfect recall, he is curious and perceptive. Sam likes to gather and consider all his evidence before making judgements, including any personal opinions. Sam is madly in love with Ford.
Rex Ford is Sam’s significant other, they have a close, trusting and loyal relationship filled with hot love for one another. Can Sam even consider that Ford may be involved in foul play? As Sam unravels the threads of Mo Chance’s murder, he knows he’ll eventually have to push his feelings to one side and question every lead.
A great cast of characters, with a good feel of their emotions. A murder investigation with gripping twists and turns with no loose ends that’ll leave you scratching your head, all tied up beautifully.
