In my opinion, when an author can create well developed characters, nonstop action and suspense in a novella, they are truly gifted. This is the first time reading anything by this author but am anxious to now read more, especially this series. P.I., Blu Carraway, as the synopsis states, is meeting an old friend, however, he walks into what was a shootout with the bar's owner, Brack Pelton and 2 unknown assailants, leaving one of them dead along with Blu's friend. Carraway, not happy about it, ends up working with Pelton to find out what and who are behind the shooting. What they don't know is how many more will die. The author pulled me into this white-knuckle read from the opening sentence. Looking forward to reading this series and hoping that Carraway and Pelton will be working together again. Highly recommend!

In Blu Heat, the introductory novella into the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series, author David Burnsworth transports the reader to the sultry lowcountry setting of Isle of Palm, SC for an intriguing Blu Carraway Southern noir / mystery adventure. When Skip Romeo is killed while waiting to meet up with lowcountry PI Blu Carraway in Brack Pelton's Pirate's Cove bar on the Isle of Palm, all hell breaks out! Both Brack and Blu are determined to find the killer, so they team up and engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse seeking revenge and justice throughout Charleston. Author David Burnsworth weaves a fast-paced and suspenseful tale that follows Blu and Brack's investigative journey as it takes them all over Charleston in search of the killer. The reader is easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting, it is filled with enough action and unsuspecting twists and turns that takes the reader on one hell of a thrilling roller coaster ride. As a fan of Southern fiction, I loved the richly descriptive Charleston setting and the surrounding lowcountry SC areas. I was intrigued by the author's creativity of intertwining his previous Brack Pelton Mystery Series featuring Brack Pelton with the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series featuring low country PI Blu Carraway. The author masterly weaves one hell of a new explosive mystery, where Blu and Brack team up and embark on a dangerous adventure to find the killer and seek justice! With an intriguing cast of characters; witty dialogue and dramatic interactions; and a richly descriptive setting that makes a person want to visit the picturesque city of Charleston, its historic landmarks, and the surrounding lowcountry areas; Blu Heat is an awesome debut mystery series novella that has the true essence of a classic Southern noir mystery!
