The Dead Don’t Bleed by David Kruger My thanks to my contacts at Pegasus Books, Iris Blasi, Katie McGuire, and Maia Larson, for my review copy of this book. You ladies rock! Our story takes place in Washington, DC in 1945. As WWII draws slowly to an end, Lieutenant Voigt of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) finds himself investigating the murder of one of the Navy’s own. Lieutenant jg Logan Skerril, US Navy, was badly beaten, shot three times, and left to bleed out in an alley. Because the man was Navy, the ONI is taking charge of the investigation to the dismay of Detective Sergeant Durkin of the Metropolitan Police Department. He states that the murder is on MPD turf, but since the dead man is a Naval Officer, the powers that be assign Voigt and his partner Terrence to the case. Not to mince words, I found the first half of the book difficult to read. It felt like I was wading through molasses. The action drags and the plot is hard to follow. There is a very neat reveal in the second half of the book for those who do finish reading the novel. I do not think the reader will be prepared at all for the climax of the book. The identity of the murderer comes as a shock that is pure brilliance. I am not certain it is worth dealing with the first half to get to that point. I always try to give an honest review; otherwise it would be worthless for me to review at all. I really couldn’t give this book more than two stars. Quoth the Raven…
