I loved the plot but I was distracted several times by Grammer errors and also in one instance center when describing one of the police officers you said at first he "thirty-seven"years old and several sentences you said he was " thirty one". I loved the suspenseful story and vivid descriptions of surroundings & characters. Godo read

I received this book for free from eDiscovery Books in exchange for an honest review. This book is the first in a series of books by Ronald J.Yarosh. Johnny Sundance is an American Indian Catholic Private Investigator. (Yup, not kidding!) And, believe it or not, it works! Johnny is hired to solve the murder of a priest – a cold case dating back two years. As a former FBI Agent and police detective, Johnny digs into the evidence, the witnesses, the scene of the crime, and anything else he can think of in an attempt to solve this murder. The book is laced with a lot of information about the Catholic Church and various monastic orders – which I found fresh and interesting. The writing is very detail-oriented and Johnny reminded me a bit of Joe Friday from “Dragnet” – except with a little better social skills. At times, the detail overtook the storyline and the dialogue was a bit trite. And Johnny must really be a very, very good guy – because his relationship with other law enforcement officials (especially the ones who screwed up the initial investigation) was a bit too amicable. With all of the depth of detail regarding locations (I could just about paint a picture of the various scenes) and procedures (I doubt there was a step taken that wasn’t recorded), I missed that kind of depth in the character development. We got “facts” about the characters, but not so much “feelings” – impacting the readers ability to empathize with the characters. (Back to the Joe Friday effect.) This was a quick interesting read, is a “clean” book (i.e., no smut or suggestive scenes) and is a complete novel. My pet peeve – typos. There are a few. So why 4 stars? Overall solid writing style, interesting story line, ability to paint “word pictures” enhancing the reading experience, and the unique knowledge of the various details regarding the Catholic Church and its administration.
