A murder investigation and a PI Jordan Jenner at the helm.

Xandar, a famous artist, was worried from a gang’s threat, the Dirty Dollys. He hired Jordan to investigate. In the art show, Xandar was found dead. Now Jordan had to find the killer.

My first book by author J. S. Strange, the story had twists and turns with the killer being one step ahead. Jordan was a fun PI, sweet in his ways, but extremely instinctive. I liked how he knew when someone was following him. He showed signs of a cop, though I would have liked if he were tougher, since he was investigating murders.

Dark was the path the art world was set in. Fast paced with varied characters, I kept looking at everyone with suspicion. I liked how Jordan assisted the cops, the team felt cohesive and trustworthy. Having not read book 1, I didn’t have a problem in following book 2.

The atmosphere in the entire book was more old-fashioned, there was an authenticity in the plot which had more of Agatha Christie-ish vibe going on with clues and suspects and careful investigation. I found this book to be an interesting investigative series. Though called a cozy, there was nothing cozy about it, no recipe, no cakes and pastries, though there was a cute cat.

A fun whodunit, I would say

I received a free ARC from Emma and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Wales at its best.

The second in the Jordan Jenner Mysteries series. The follow up to Murder on the Rocks.

Artist Xander Draper is being threatened by a dangerous group. With PI Jordan Jenner’s help, Xander hopes to remain unscathed.

But when Xander is murdered, his body displayed as his final exhibit, Jordan realises the extent of the trouble Xander was in. Now, there are people following Jordan. They know his name, and they want him dead.

Meanwhile, Jordan’s brother Ashley has returned, and he has a secret. As time runs out to solve the murder of the famous artist, Jordan begins to fear his brother may be responsible.

  1. A gang that called themselves the Dirty Dollys – I have to know – were they? You certainly grabbed my attention 😉
