Aramis Black is a private detective working in Music City USA (aka Nashville, TN). In this previous novel (which is referred to early and often in this book), he tracked down a family treasure and had a variety of adventures. Now he's back, helping his brother celebrate the release of his new CD and on the trail of a new threat. This time, the connection is a bit closer to home for Black, who is quickly pulled into a web of conspiracy and deceit.

I totally love Aramis Black.

I would write a longer review, but I am sleepy and my brain doesn't want to function right now. Perhaps I will add more later when I am more awake. :)


Aramis Black is a man trying to turn his life around. He used to be part of an anarchist group and led a violent lifestyle involving drugs, but after a religious epiphany he decided to move to Nashville to live with his brother and start over anew.

He moves far away from his former life and now reads the Bible, prays, runs a coffee shop--a tribute to his late mother.

And his past came back to haunt him.

As book two, A Shred of Truth, unfolds, Aramis learns there's more past to

Although I like Eric Wilson as an author, this book seemed to be kinda random in its plot. It gives you bits and pieces of clues in a random assortment throughout the book, but does it in an way that seems to be rather ADD in its prime suspect. It ties it all in rather well at the end, but it often leaves you wondering whether Aramis is hallucinating or not. It is very unrealistic in that his mom was alive the whole time and she didn’t try to contact them ever.

The basis of the book is that Ara

Aramis thinks long presumed dead mother might be alive. Gets sent on a cat and mouse chase. Lots of dialogue that isn't labeled, difficult to follow because I had to keep backtracking to find out who was saying what.

Same charming MC as THE BEST OF EVIL, this time trying to stop a killer, but always a step behind.
