6.0 Stars! Reading one of Greg Herren’s Chanse MacLeod mysteries is akin to curling up in bed with knees tucked beneath the covers and sipping a cup of hot cocoa. In order words – for me at least – reading a book in this this series is like a homecoming, comfortable, homely…and, incredibly addictive. Herren’s #5 entry in the series of six mysteries thus far has become one of my favorites. I read this one out of sequence since I had to wait until Murder In The Garden District was released in eboo ...more

I fear I'm going to repeat myself quite a bit, if you've read any of my previous reviews of the Chanse MacLeod mysteries, but with that warning in mind I'll first say MURDER IN THE GARDEN DISTRICT was a fantastic, confounding mystery with real bite. If you've not read any of the previous books, you owe it to yourself to start at the beginning.

Now for the parts where I'm repeating myself.

First, if there's one single thing that drives me crazy in the mystery world, it's the lack of lasting effect.

Greg writes wonderful mysteries that captivate you from the very beginning and keep the suspense going. The only disappoint is that I end up reading them too quickly because I can't put them down, and it's all over before you know it!
one of the silliest murder myteries i have ever read. people running around in the rain, etc....just silly. no substance in my humble opion.
I liked this one. The 'twist' was not much of a surprise, though.
