A murder mystery: two murders including a feisty old ghost, Bosley - a womaniser and restless soul who move things around in the Fenton Hotel Tavern and Grille, who sings happily along with the performers and who hope someone can solve his murder.
That's where the father and son - detective team, Clay and Tanner Thomas, comes in when they also had to sort out another murder. They both have special abilities - really special, believe me, including communicating with ol' Bosley, read minds and basically do what has to be done to get this murder mystery on the road.
Meet Jasper, their midget lawyer, who would get sprayed by a skunk, 'accidently' land on the female prosecutor's lap(which made his day!) and have the ability to super-charge a certain cop to look like an overly-blown-up red balloon.
Poor six foot ten and overweight Sherman Septic Tankersley, the plumber, has his hands full with confined spaces, ghosts which open taps and switch off lights, metal steps that bends under his weight and have him captured by the handrails closing in on him. Life is not a good one for this giant. His temper is severely tested by his fright of ghosts and people who just do not understand him.
In the mix is also Zander Frauss, the neuroscientist ....need I say more?
Mix all these characters, and quite a few interesting ones more, with science, the paranormal, romance, intrigue, humor and excellent writing skills, and you get "Bulletproof" by Jeff LaFerney: a riveting, fast-moving who-dunnit that will keep you awake!

Author Jeff LaFerney has done an amazing job, yet again, with his latest murder mystery story Bulletproof.
Clay and Tanner Thomas use their supernatural abilities to help solve a double murder mystery in the town of Fenton, Michigan. This father and son team took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions ranging from sadness to elation. This book is fast paced, easy to read and very exciting with many unexpected twists and turns. Get ready to make a list of the facts and suspects as you read to see if you can guess the murderer in both crimes!
What I love the most about Mr. LaFerney's writing style is that he embeds real life lessons in his stories that everyone can relate to. Trials and tribulations affect all of us and his characters are no different. They rely on family, friends, faith, and love to overcome the many obstacles that life may give us.
Here is my favorite partial quote from the book. "...The trials make us mature and complete, but they're never more that we can bear and we can always know that until we get to that point, we're bulletproof."

I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
First let me say this is the third book in the Clay and Tanner series. The first book is Loving the Rain, and the second book Skeleton Key. If you have read the two previous books and enjoyed them you know Jeff's writing style. It is unique his books have no explict language too them, no graphic scenes.
Bulletproof has another mystery for us to figure out. Clay and Tanner can not get away from the mysteries that seem to find them. When Clay's father is injured and Clay is the prime suspect he must work on proving he is innocent with the help of his son and friends. New characters are introduced along with characters from the previous books. While Clay is figuring out the mysteries his love life takes a wild turn and he has to deal with that also. The relationship between Clay and Tanner is an amazing father/son relationship which Jeff describes perfectly in his writing. Of course there is the humor that will keep you laughing, and the mystery going on that will keep you guessing as you try to figure out who-dun-it.
Jeff brings back the character Jasper, which if you have read my previous reviews you will know I love this little guy. (He does not like to be referred to as a midget) When Jasper is brought in on this book * NOW THIS IS A SPOILER* he is sprayed by a skunk and just the way that everything is described just had me giggling and re-reading it over just for the laugh. I do hope there is another book in this series, because I want to see what exactly is going to happen between Clay and Erika.
If you like to read a good heart-warming story, with suspense, mystery, paranormal powers, love, family, friendship. Then I suggest you go out and get this book. I do not think you would be disappointed.
My favorite quotes:
" He'll never give us more than we can bear."
"When God begins a work in us, He'll carry it on to completion."
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."
Those 3 quotes that are the ones that stood out to me, because they are so true. I use the first quote a lot when myself or someone I know is going through a hard time. I know that God will never give us more than we can bear, he knows how much we can take.

I really think they should go into detective work, the team of Tanner and his father Clay. The duo have psychic abilities that they use to solve mysteries but they don’t let their talents go to their heads and the mysteries involve some good detective work with some very interesting characters. This book has Clay dealing with some deep emotions yet trying to solve two crimes at one time while still doing his job as a basketball coach at the U of M and being a father. Yes, he has a lot on his plate. The local police place the blame on Clay for the string of robberies that have taken place in town and Clay and Tanner need to prove his innocence. This is the third book in the series but this book can stand alone as the author does a great job explaining any details you might need from the previous books. This fast-paced book will keep your attention from the beginning and doesn’t let up until you get to the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
