Pine Village Co-op Murders by Chief John J Mandeville is a very well written murder mystery novel. It is reminiscent of Clue. While reading this novel and delving into the lives of Detective Miguel (Mike) Sanchez and Detective Steven Boyd, the reader becomes surrounded by clues and possible motives. Chief Mandeville writing style presents the plot of this novel in every day terms so the reader can understand without using too much law enforcement jargon. This novel has many characters and every last one of them are important to the scheme of things. Tracy, Detective Sanchez’s wife brought a homey feel to the novel. She was written in to support her husband but also bring a voice of reasoning to the many cases her husband brings home. It also helps that she is like the queen of neighborhood watch and tends to get in a little trouble herself. I enjoyed reading this novel and trying desperately to solve the murder mystery. Chief Mandeville definitely kept me on my toes and wanting to read more into the lives of Detective Sanchez and Detective Boyd.

Pine Village is a rundown co-op on Long Island where police detective Mike Sanchez lives along with his wife and kids. Pine Village Co-op Murders by Chief John J. Mandeville states it is a continuation of the exploits of Mike Sanchez, but it is the first book I have read in this series. When a gruesome murder scene is discovered in the co-op laundry facility, Mike is forced to track down a killer who appears to be targeting residents of Pine Village. I thought the book started out a bit slow. It took a while to get through the introduction of characters, but after the first few chapters, the action kicks in and the pace accelerates. Overall I liked Pine Village. It was a decent murder mystery with lots of possible suspects and the setting was certainly unique. I liked the main character and the descriptions of the crime scenes and police procedure all seem spot-on.

Great mystery whodonit. Many twists and turns. Great characters; especially Chief of Detectives Boyd, and of course the murder or murderers, I'm not telling you which.
