Keeps you hooked til the very end every time. P.I. thriller/mystery.
I nearly quit reading this. Scary, dark, depressing. Ended well, a surprise, and glad I finished it.
This is the third book I've read by the author and a great improvement from the first two Fred Carver books. It held my interest to the end, the cliches present in the first two books are almost all gone and I found the book enjoyable. The twist towards the end was unexpected but I felt that it was introduced clumsily and the ending was a little flat. The suspense at the end left me asking for description and the tidy up was a little too fast and convenient.

You want to see one of the badassingest bad guys ever? Meet Raffy Ortiz! I loved John Lutz's gripping tale of murders in an old folks home in Florida. I've read a couple of Lutz's mysteries and this is my favorite. IN fact, when I emailed John to compliment him, he confessed this was his favorite of the Fred Carver PI series also! You won't find much better stuff than this.

Fred's friend asked him to check on his uncles death at a retirement home. Turned out there were several unexplaned deaths. The description of this book on goodreads does not match the book.
This is a good mystery. It's an old one I found in a pile of old books. Interesting reading a book from the 80s.
