What I Read #97
Listen to the Dead by Randall Peffer: A cold case on a small island has local law enforcement baffled. Harbormaster Corby Church and detective Yemanja Colon are thrust into the solving of the case to save their jobs.
This well written novel by Peffer is a "chewy" one. The prose is very literate and the mix of Colon's native tongue adds to the mystery. Though not for everyone, Listen to the Dead will wrap the reader in the songs of the sea as they delve into the unknown. I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy a mystery novel with a little more sophistication.
