Book Tour: Book Review - Kill't Dead...or Worse by R.W. Hacker

After a murdered partner, a cheating wife and a lost job in Houston, Nick Sibelius sets up a private investigation business in a small Texas town hoping to find some peace and maybe, himself. When two lovers disappear and a fisherman turns up dead, he finds himself drawn into a web of crime and deceit involving MaryLou, a beautiful woman with a mysterious past; Junior, a failed farmer whose best intentions seem to always result in a dead body; and Barry, a sociopathic dentist turned illegal toxic waste entrepreneur with a violent right wing agenda. When the felon who killed Nick’s partner in Houston joins forces with Barry, Nick must not only stop the toxic waste dumping while finding his client’s missing daughter, but keep from being killed in the process. In the end, MaryLou’s dark secret will either save him or kill him -- whichever comes first.

My Take on the Book:
I found that the romance between Nick Sibelius and Marylou Pendleton quite pleasant, even though Marylou could be an evasive and sometimes distant character, and would have liked if they had carried on their romance, though I didn't really mind how the novel ended. I gave this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:
This book appears to be part of a series, and I most certainly wouldn't mind reading the next book.
