I listened to Angels In Mourning on audible

Angels in Mourning is the first novel I have listened too by author David Wind despite Mr Wind having 32 other novels out already. This is because crime/detective books wouldn't normally be my kind of books as I can normally tell early on who the murderer is, but the story sounded too intriguing and good to pass up the opportunity. I'm so glad I did give it a chance as it's opened me up to another author and I define will check out more of his work.

Thourouly enjoyed this book. From start to finish. This is my 5th book by David Wind covering three different genres Historical, Epic Fantasy and Mystery/Thriller each and every single one of them have been great stories.

Well written, engaging, interesting and entertaining. You are sucked into the story immediately and all you can do is hold on for the ride. It's a mystery within a mystery. One new and one from the past. While I was able to solve part of the mystery before the end, there was sti

The protagonist who is an ex marine special forces astronaut jet fighter pilot police detective framed for murder of his wife with a selection of sidekicks who are all nothing short of (racial stereotype) superheroes will fight one dimensional cackling villains to solve a murder case of Andrew Lloyd Webber killed before he could finish his next pop musical but not before doing the rewrite and saving girls from a child prostitution ring, all this whilst describing in ridiculous detail the most mu ...more

Angels in Mourning takes a look the worst sort of people, those who steal a child's innocence for their own perverse pleasure.

Little does Gabe realize that this case will span nearly 30 years as he hunts for a killer and will involve dealing with New York's organized crime families. Scotty's little sister was kidnapped when she was just 8 years ol ...more

Overall I liked this book. The basics of the plot were rather standard but the background was unique. You don't find many murder mysteries set in the theater world. It moved along quickly and had some interesting characters.

Gabriel Storm, the detective was likable and solid for the first half. He's motivated to find the killer of his best friend despite the trouble it causes him. His assistant/partner is an interesting character with an interesting name and history.

The problem with this story i

I read this when it first came out and just re-read it. I'm not a big fan of the hard boiled detective stories, but this one was very different. It was contemporary and it's main protagonist was really well done. He was hard where he was supposed to be, and warm at exactly the right times. His sidekick is-(you have to read about the sidekick) The plot was well paced and there were several spots that caught me completely off-guard. The ending, well.... it was surprising and great!

I loved this book. I felt like I was reading an old crime who-dunnit with a private-eye leading the way. The characters were wonderful and well defined, as was the plot. The end had a great twist and I look forward to reading more of his works.

Clear writing style. Local setting. Lots of character description. Frequent cliff hangers keep it moving.

Very different from this author's other books, it was part mystery /part suspense thriller. And it was not only very good, but a cliffhanger filled romp!
