It's a Killer of a Time

Here is another new author I want to introduce you all too.

Bob Avey is the author of the Kenny Elliot mystery series, which includes Twisted Perception, released April 2006, and Beneath a Buried House, June 2008, several short stories and various non-fiction articles. He lives with his wife and son in Broken Arrow , Oklahoma where he works as an accountant in the petroleum industry, and when he’s not writing or researching mystery writing techniques, he spends his free time prowling through dusty antique shops looking for the rare or unusual, or roaming through ghost towns, searching for echoes from the past. Through his writing, which he describes as a blend of literary and genre, he explores the intricacies and extremities of human nature.

Bob is a member of The Tulsa NightWriters, The Oklahoma Writers Federation (active board member for 2006), The Oklahoma Mystery Writers, and Mystery Writers of America.

Here's my review.

Tulsa Detective Kenny Elliot has a new case to solve. It involves the death of a transient. Who at first it seems died of a drug overdose but upon further research Detective Elliot finds there is more than meets the eye. The more Elliot digs in and gets his hands dirty the deeper he realizes he could be in over his head, especially when things start happening to him like finding a pentagram craved on the hood of his car or receiving a threatening message in his email. Plus there are other forces taking place around Elliot in the form of a cult. But on the flip side Elliot does discover the identity of the transient. His name is Jim Llewellyn and he was writing a story on the mysterious disappearance of the Stone family. A husband, wife and two children from Donegal, Oklahoma. So who is this family Jim was writing about and what do they have to hide? Also, Elliot has been seeing a gal named Cyndi, Bannister, a waitress at a diner. The problem is the closer Elliot gets to Cyndi he finds she has some skeletons in her closet. But are they her’s or someone else’s?

I like a good detective, mystery story. So when I saw the chance to read Bob Avey’s new book Beneath a Buried House I jumped on it. I liked the main character Detective Elliot. I found him to be a pretty decent stand up kind of guy, who would help anyone but also had a level head on his shoulders. Elliot also knew just how to solve a case. The storyline was a good one as well as I found myself wanting to keep reading this book. The ending was a surprise to me, which is always a good thing when this happens. Beneath a Buried House is the first book I have read by Mr. Avey. I look forward to reading more books by this author.
