A. P. B by Dave Pedneau is a great book. I read all of his books when they were first published and I thought they were fantastic. Time has not changed my mind. I was so excited to see they are now available, I would check for them every month or so to see if they were available and I was finally rewarded.

Review: A.P.B. (A Whit Pynchon Mystery) by Dave Pedneau

I really enjoyed this mystery, which combines down-home cozy with edgy thrills and gory murder (not to mention, some less-fatal small-town troublemaking, such as snooping, gossip, adultery, police brutality and halitosis, envy, fear of change, and on and on).

I read the original series and am happy to see it available again in eBook format. The pattern of the serial killer is unique and well written. I also enjoyed the conflict of the main character regarding his liking for a journalist. Time hasn't done anything to this series but help it! Highly recommended!

Liked the book and the characters. The mystery was ok but I wasn't entirely surprised by the outcome. I do want to read a few more in the series to watch the characters develop

A stupid and senseless book. None of the characters is believable neither is the plot.
