Who says honeymoons aren’t dangerous? This one was murder!
Private investigator Tom Logan and his girlfriend Rita finally tie the knot, choosing a turn-of-the-century beach resort on Coronado Island as their ideal honeymoon escape. Unfortunately what begins as a romantic getaway, ends suddenly with murder. A bestselling author is brutally killed on the night of a mystery writers’ convention, and Logan is forced to postpone their plans when drawn reluctantly into the case. During the course of the investigation, Logan meets an odd assortment of suspects that include: a soon-to-be ex-wife seeking monetary compensation, a jealous husband whose wife may be having an affair with the author, the writer’s male secretary who’s subservience to his boss was wearing thin, a lady mystery author with an agenda all her own, and a pair of publishers whom the writer accuses of plagiarism. A famous actor who plays a detective on the screen also makes a surprise appearance, as does a hotel ghost who just refuses to check out. Matching wits with a vengeful killer is what Logan does best, and he does exactly that in Murder is Such Sweet Revenge.
Praise for Murder is Such Sweet Revenge
Terrific fast paced noir thriller in the grand tradition of the 1930s masters!
By Paul Fahey
A fast-paced ride in the tradition of the wonderful 1930s era mystery writers who wrote such great classics with a light sophisticated touch. I’ve read all of Mr. Piazza’s Tom Logan’s mysteries and this is definitely one of his very best efforts writing in the genre. High marks for the characters, situations, fun and witty dialogue, and the whodunit factor that truly is a surprise. Just when I thought I had it figured out…well, you know how that goes. Terrific surprise ending and fluid writing from scene to scene and chapter to chapter. Bravo, Mr. Piazza. Ya done good. Very good.
MURDER IS SUCH SWEET REVENGE has it all
By Frank Scozzari
Tony Piazza makes the improbable probable. He grabbed hold of me from page one and never let go. When I’m reading a mystery novel I’m always trying to think ahead, but he had me bamboozled, guessing to the very end, and entertained throughout. His main character, Tom Logan, is a fascinating example of everything you’d expect in a classic private detective.
If you like mystery novels, you’ll love this. A highly ingenious jig-sawing plot makes this one of today’s best thrillers in the genre. Don’t sit down expecting to solve this one, because that feat seems entirely impossible.
