Overview

A thrilling mystery about a tough-as-nails private eye who tracks down the killer of his ex-wife in a dangerous and suspenseful quest.

This Time It's Personal. Money, Sex, Murder. His ex-wife is dead. The cops think he did it. Ed Rogan, tough as nails and twice as sharp, is a private investigator of malfeasance in the corporate world. The enigmatic case he's working on in A Murder Too Personal takes on a very personal aspect when he searches for the murderer of his ex-wife. Someone has thoughtlessly put a bullet into the back of her head and Rogan is driven by the twin fiery demons of guilt and revenge to find her killer. His exciting quest leads him through the netherworld of Wall Street and corporate board rooms where vermin in Armani suits crawl along the underside of a glittering world where nothing is as it appears. The suspects are golden, well-groomed executive types with deadly secrets of greed, betrayal and lust locked up in their expensive, highly polished mahogany desks. As he tracks down the murderer in a dangerous and suspenseful pursuit, Rogan rips apart layer after layer of surprises about the woman he was married to. Along the way he discovers she was not the wife he thought he knew, which leads him to the unanswerable question, "Do we ever really know another person?"

    Good quick read

    I am beginning to enjoy Davis. Only complaint is that the ending is very quick leaving me wanting more of a resolution.

    Murder Too Personal

    Reading 'A Murder Too Personal' is like watching a minor league baseball game on a hot summer's night with a cold beer in hand. Baseball is interesting and good and easy to follow and enjoy. Likewise 'A Murder Too Personal.' Ed Rogan, the mystery's protagonist, is like a pitcher whose appearance on the mound in the bottom of the ninth is a welcome relief. He solves his case with wit and wisdom and skill. Gerald Davis strikes me as a writer who missed his calling as a standup comic or deliman, two of the few occupations he has not held in his lifetime according to his bio. His dialogue is rich and accurate. However, his desciptions of clothing and New York City locations are as tiresome as a diagram of a catcher's mitt or a commentator's description of his fourth of July family picnic. Still, the wisecracks, some as old as Yogi Berra, afford a guffaw or two and the pacing is fast--unlike baseball. I read this book in one sitting while waiting for my son to finish his music lesson. And I'm glad I did.

    Murder Too Personal

    The merry quipster of the suit set is back. For more than two decades, Gerald J. Davis has been circulating mystery novel manuscripts among his fellow commuters aboard Metro North. These tales of Ed Rogan, private eye, solving murders and uncovering securities fraud in the canyons of Wall Street sometimes touched a nerve among Davis's select readership of investment bankers and stockbrokers some of whom ended up having problems with the SEC and doing time themselves. Now Davis has finally gone commercial with a new Ed Rogan mystery between book covers, 'A Murder Too Personal.' The book has been circulated on a pre-publish basis to willing readers on the 7:22 out of Westport. 'A Murder Too Personal' finds Ed Rogan in an unusual predicament. His ex-wife is dead and he's a suspect. But not for long. In his descriptive prose, a sort of staccato sophisticatta where Borscht Belt meets Brooks Brothers, Davis weaves the type of page-turner for which he's known. Rogan's a crafty character: sarcastic, cynical, prurient, and wrecklessly courageous. He takes his lumps in middle age as he visits a variety of New York City neighborhoods searching for clues to clear his name. Dedicated to Monica (Lewinsky?) with an epigraph from T.S. Eliot, 'A Murder Too Personal' is a good, quick and entertaining read. You're sure to see a lot of copies riding Metro North.

    Abrupt Ending

    Overall it's okay but not riveting. Moved at a moderate pace until it abruptly stops instead of a satisfying ending.

    Didnt like

    I thought dialogue to be childish & too far from reality. It would be something I would think a high school boy would write.
