Murder by Moonlight (Dick Moonlight Series #4)by Vincent Zandri, RC Bray
But the woman
What’s a nice, proper dame like Joan Parker doing in a place like Dick Moonlight’s office? The scar running down her face from the business end of an axe has something to do with it. Shortly after the attack that killed her husband and left her for dead, she pointed the finger at her son Christopher, who now sits in jail.
But the woman insists the police have it all wrong Christopher didn’t do it and she just needs the private eye to prove it. Moonlight knows mothers will say anything to protect their kids. He also knows how the police can take a mistake and run with it. Having been nearly dead a time or two himself makes Moonlight a little more empathetic. He takes the case, and soon the clues lead him toward something more sinister than he’s ever seen before.

Vincent Zandri's writing is so wonderfully rich in detail that in addition to being instantly entranced in story, I was in the mind (and could clearly hear the voice) of detective Dick Moonlight. Each action and thought is described so perfectly that my mind instantly composed a film version (black and white, of course) with each sentence. Dick Moonlight had me at his first glass of Jack.
Really great summer thriller read! I thought I knew about this murder case living in the area of "The Little Town of Bethlehem" but Zandri took the story to a whole new level. Don't want to be a spoiler, but the ending was tense and terrific! Didn't see any of it coming, which is the mark of a great crime thriller. Love Moonlight and his foibles. A great classic Dick if there ever was one! Can't wait to read more about Moonlight and his adventures in my hometown!
