    A Slight Case of Death: 4 out of 5 stars

    Being a hard-nosed bulldog when it comes to solving cases is never easy on Tony Mandolin. It starts to get harder when the daughter of a rich tycoon asks him to find her twin sister. The chase is on as bodies begin appearing one after another- all victims of drug overdoses…or are they?

    A Slight Case of Death by Robert Lee Beers, takes off with twist after twist, leading to places the reader never expected to go.

    This ARC was given to me as a free gift, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this tale to the end! I got hooked by the twists in the plot that went through run-ins with crazy, flaming drag-queens, size-changing alcoholic pixies, and off-color vampires. I have to say that my favorite character was Frankie: the cross-dressing, flaming drag-queen who often tried to steal the show!

    I'm sure that more excitement and drama waits in the next installment of this series!

    Reviewed by Paul J. for Readers Favorite

    A beautiful lady asks Tony to find her missing twin sister, and sporting a handgun, makes him an offer he can’t refuse. Tony quickly finds the missing girl, dead. But that’s just the start of his problems as his client and other young redheads also soon turn up dead. But this is not just your run-of-the-mill serial killer. No, this one leaves a very strange clue. Each girl appears to have been ‘fed’ upon. But, Vampires don't really exist, do they? That is a question Private Detective Tony Mandolin finds himself pondering as the evidence piles up in a case involving dead redheads. Tony has another small problem, how to correct the perception that he has become a made man for the city’s major crime boss. Tony finally begins to make some headway but just when he thinks things couldn’t get any weirder, they do.

    First of all, I loved this story. As a fan of first person hard-core P.I. stories I felt this one might just be right up my alley. The story started out well, showing us a well-conceived protagonist and a wealth of colorful characters, particularly the cross-dressing Fankie and Police Detectives Rorche and Monahan. The plot had me hooked from the start but with every little twist and turn I fell even farther and then there was one gigantic twist. Several times I found myself laughing out loud at the characters Tony suddenly finds himself allied with. This story has it all, good detective work, a little mystery, a little fantasy and good clean fun. What could be better?
