Death Will Help Youi Leave Him
I want to thank Hector with St. Martin's PRess for sending me this book to review.
Bruce Kohler finds himself sucked into a murder investigation. His friend, Barbara. Barbara is an additions counselor. One of her sponsors, Luz has just become the prime suspect in the murder of her boyfriend. As much as Bruce doesn't want to get involved, he knows he would do anything for Barbara. Besides having his hands full, Bruce also has to contend with his ex-wife, Laura. She is reaching out for Bruce's help but Bruce knows she is no good for him. She is a part of his old life with contained drugs and alcohol.
Death Will Help You Leave Him is the sequel to Death Will Get You Sober, the first novel by author, Elizabeth Zelvin. This is the first book I have read by this author. I have to say that after reading this book, that I plan to check out Death Will Get You Sober. I liked Bruce Kohler. There was this wit about him that made him very personable. Don't let the fact that he is a recovering alcoholic fool you, as Bruce is smart and is aware of everything that goes on around him. He has this great sense about people. What I liked about this book is that the characters were real. Though at times I would start to lose interest. It doesn't really take a genius to figure out what happened but seeing how Bruce came to the conclusion was fun. I plan to keep an eye on this author and her books.
