Warren to figure out how and why the dead man died . . . twice.
Have you ever picked up one of these short e-books by Lisa Gardner? If not, they are incredible. It’s a snippet into little cases that could easily be a full book, but make great little novellas to tide you over while waiting for the next Lisa Gardner release.
The Guy Who Died Twice is the story of a strange man who comes in stating he is dead. Not much later he turns up actually dead. D. D. and her team take on a Clue like mystery trying to decide who this rich man was and who killed it. Could it be the butler? The lawn boy? The maid? How did they do it?
I love how this felt like playing a game of clue. It really got me into the story. I felt involved in the investigation right alongside my girl D.D. I found all the characters to be mysterious and had me questioning their motives and if they had the opportunity. As usual, Gardner’s writing style is intense, elusive, and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. She gives you just enough information to make you think you’ve figured it out when really you are not even close.
Definitely pick it up on Amazon or Barnes and Nobles. It’s inexpensive and a quick, fun… bloody read.
