    Rex Royale is a highly enjoyable book, a gripping mystery with
    believable characters whose feelings and predicaments pull you right
    into the story. Jack Erickson has an almost uncanny depth of insight
    into how human beings—young, old, male, female, rich, poor, guilty and
    innocent—think, feel, and behave. I especially liked how the point of
    view shifted between the two main characters, Tyler and Hannah. These
    two journalists are compelled by circumstances to work together to
    report on the murder, and as they get to know each other, it’s quite
    entertaining to get inside each character’s head and heart via this
    special technique. Rex himself is an intriguing character. Rich and
    powerful, he nonetheless exhibits a very sweet vulnerability and even a
    little boy quality in the delightful scene when he shares his family
    photos with Hannah: His eyes lit up, and he clapped his hands. “Want to
    see something else?” There’s a satisfying balance in this book between
    the heavier, murder-related parts and the lighter, even humorous,
    aspects. It has been a long time since I read a murder mystery in which
    the comic relief left such a lasting impression that I giggled for days
    afterwards. Such was the case for me with Vince Harley, the local cop
    who is a living comedy of errors. As Jack Erickson has done in his other
    works, he offers delightful humor throughout the book. As Hannah and
    Tyler investigate Rex’s murder, they plan to attend a fundraiser where
    various suspects will be present. Hannah comments to Tyler, “Get them in
    their own environment, and they’re more likely to open up a bit.” This
    is just one of the many excellent observations about life and human
    behavior offered by Jack Erickson in this engaging novel. As an animal
    lover, I felt that Hannah’s black Lab, Rusty, added a very nice
    dimension to the book. I liked it that Rusty even played an important
    role in the story’s ending. The story is set in a peaceful, scenic area
    of Northern California with a beautiful lake and Mt. Shasta in the
    background. For me, this gorgeous setting added to the book’s appeal.
    As the excitement builds in the final chapters, Rex Royale becomes a
    true page-turner. From the hilarious, bumbling cop to the surprising,
    dramatic twists, this book is one entertaining ride!

    I was impressed that in no way would I have ever guessed the ending to this good story.
