MEMORY OF A MURDER by Earl Staggs
MEMORY OF A MURDER by Earl Staggs is a tale told by a gentleman, a fine upstanding gentleman, one you’d like to have for a next-door neighbour. Adam Kingston, the protagonist, is a mere 44 years of age but he feels like he comes from an older time where grace prevailed and everyday cussing was a gentle banter between friends.
Curiously Adam is now an itinerant psychic consultant, formerly FBI. Not to worry, woo-woo plays a low key element in the story. Although Adam works alongside law enforcement officers, he occasionally has a flagrant disregard for their rules. Probably a benefit from being retired.
MEMORY OF A MURDER is a clever, intriguing puzzle, though the bad guys do turn out to be pretty bad and we are treated to a rather unusual mind-of-the-killer.
MEMORY OF A MURDER is an excellent way to while away the evening with a glass of full-bodied red wine.
