Caribbean Moon by Rick Murcer

***Revised Edition***

Small-town detective/workaholic, Manny Williams, is thrilled with the prospect of finally taking the long-awaited vacation he had promised his wife, Louise. The couple's exotic getaway begins in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico, by attending the wedding of a fellow Lansing police officer, followed with an incredible week-long Southern Caribbean cruise on the glamorous Ocean Duchess.

A bizarre, seemingly random murder in their posh San Juan Hotel, and the heinous cruise ship deaths of two of Lansing's law enforcement family, brings Manny, and his unique skills, out of cruise mode and head-long into the FBI-led investigation. Manny soon discovers that in this killer's twisted perception nothing is off limits, prompting a race against time that could cost him everything.

If you like edge-of-your-seat thrillers laced with humor, you'll love this!

I loved this book from beginning to end. It's an excellent summer read

This crime thriller definitely left me wanting more, with its intense action and compelling (albeit disturbing) glimpses into a deranged killer's mind. Warning: this is a gritty book, not for the faint of heart. Murcer has a distinctive writing style, with metaphors galore and vivid descriptions. Although I might like to see fewer metaphors and less description during action scenes, the author uses his time in the characters' heads to flesh out motivations, emotions, and backstory to create well-rounded individuals that for the most part the reader can empathize with, even when we can guess they're about to die. The book has some steamy scenes, but the generalized promiscuity, the coupling of sex with brutality, and intermingling of inappropriate sex and sexual talk left this reader ready for a change of pace, which was fortunately satisfied through the romantic sexual encounters between the hero, Manny Williams, and his wife, while the two wait to learn whether she has cancer. The occasional typos and style and usage problems didn't pull my focus away from the strong story line, as they too often do. I'm looking forward to the next book.

A very good read from start to finish. The characters are written so you can relate with them as if you have known them for years. a combination of Patterson and Kellerman.

Very lovable characters--real life people who aren't afraid to show strength and/or vulnerability. I especially love Sophie, a woman who has faults but hides them behind humor. Manny Williams seems to understand human nature at an instinctive level--he doesn't even know how or why, he just goes with his gut. This book contrasts the beauty of the setting with the ugliness of murder. Another theme is love and marriage.

I wasn't expecting this book to be any different from all of the other serial killer books I've read but I have to say this was definitely the best. It wasn't overly gruesome and the relatively quick pace kept me interested. I also loved how the author put so much detail into the relationship between each character, especially Manny and Sophie. I cannot wait to see what Manny does next in Deceitful Moon.
