Was Harold Dumphy killed to cover up something at the nuclear power plant where he was the head of security?
This is what Harold’s widow asks Goff Langdon, private detective, to find out. Langdon is a laid back, slacker detective, happy with his work, friends, and way of life in the town of Brunswick, Maine. To compliment his income in small town Maine’s scarce private detective market, Langdon also owns and operates a mystery bookstore named after his trusted companion, Coffee Dog.
Does Langdon stand a chance against corrupt cops, crooked politicians, greedy millionaires, radical environmentalists, and a deadly assassin named Shakespeare?
With the help of Bart, the bear of a cop; Jimmy 4 by Four, the hippie lawyer; the immigrants Jewell and Richam; and his true desire and employee, Chabal-Langdon sets out to do just that. And then he is framed for not one, but two murders, and events become very complicated.
Follow Langdon and his band of friends as they attempt to untangle the web of intrigue and return Brunswick to “the way life should be.”
I read this book in a day and bloody loved it. It had everything I wanted plus more. I was drawn to the main character who is called Goff Langdon he is a private detective but also has his own bookstore, which is named after his dog Coffee Dog. There is a interesting mix of characters some baddies like Shakespeare and greedy millionaires that Langdon has to deal with but also some nice characters like Chabal who runs the bookstore for Langdon. I liked the beginning, middle and end. How the story wraps up too is very good. This was a great first book and I look forward to book 2. 10/10
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
