In reading Dallas Gorham's detective novel, Six Murders Too Many, the term "everything but the kitchen sink" immediately comes to mind. The author has stuffed his book full of killings (considerably more than six over the course of the book), suspects, criminal schemes, gorgeous women, shady characters, mobsters, hitmen, and cops from virtually every jurisdiction in North America, all tied together by Gorham's hero, PI Carlos McCrary, whose own history contains just about everything but the kitc ...more

I gave it a 3 because the good guy never misses when he shoots, and the ladies always go to bed with him. So, right away, the book is not realistic. 😁 I enjoyed the book other than that. The investigation keeps turning up stuff for everyone to keep wondering who done it. Think black widows, ED pills, a baby, a dermatologist, a tennis pro, a country club, an arson and arsonist, six murders, Cleveland, Houston, Port City, Alaska, the Bahamas, Mexico; put it all in a blender, and there you have it.

Carlos as a Pi has an unusual case, Ike doesn’t think there is a case. His father recently died, and the widow thinks that the inheritance should be divided. Coming to the office is Lorraine his wife and Ike. His father had an ex wife and two half sisters that died in a fire just before his dad died.

An engaging hero with a sense of humor

I’m from Texas, and I endorse this delightful, occasionally disingenuous, altogether charming hero wholeheartedly. This well-written PI tale has it all: action, romance, plot twists and a satisfying ending that yet sparks interest in the next adventure. I like protagonist, and approve this author. You won’t regret reading it.

Great mystery

This is a great story that moves quickly and really keeps you guessing as to who is the murderer. The characters are well thought out and the plot is complicated enough to keep you reading but not so complicated that it's confusing. Overall an excellent book with enough mystery, romance, humor and action for most readers. I loved it. Read it. You will too.

I love Carlos McCrary

From the first page I was involved in the story, cared about the characters, enjoyed Carlos’ thought process, wondered what was going to happen next and was hooked to the last page. Cannot wait to get into the next and the next and the next adventures.

Love this guy

What great, fun, entertaining, good guy wins books but they are also interesting who-dunnit’s. Plenty of murder & mayhem spiced with humor and Carlos light hearted conquests. I’m reading them all. I suggest others do the same.

The first person point of view keeps a low key picture of gruesome possibilities. The author does an excellent job of keeping attention on the hero as well as unfolding the storyline in a very believable event by event way

Great read..

Loved the book. The characters were well thought out and introduced to the reader with completeness. I mean you didn't get just bits and pieces, as in some novels, during the course of the story.
The author keeps the reader's interest and moved the story along at a quick pace.
I opted for this book as it and the author were new to me...and it was free. I am glad to purchase other offerings from this author.
Good luck with your career as an author!!
