Review of The Green Pearl Caper, Damien Dickens Mysteries, Book 1
by Phyllis Entis
Rated 5 out of 5 stars by Iris Chacon.
This writer received a copy of the Audible audio book edition in exchange for an honest, objective review.
Detective Damien Dickens has been framed for murder, and the only solution is for the beleaguered private investigator to bring the real killer to justice.
This is a classic gumshoe detective story with under-appreciated girlfriends, unknown family relationships, wealth and concurrent depravity in yesteryear’s Atlantic City, and a persistent, wise-cracking hero. I really enjoyed it and found it delightfully reminiscent of the archetypal private-eye stories of the thirties, forties, and fifties. The hero’s personality kept me entertained, and the twists and turns of the plot kept me guessing.
This is the second Damien Dickens Mystery I have had the pleasure of reading, and I am eagerly anticipating a third. Best of all, this book contains absolutely no offensive material.
I would recommend The Green Pearl Caper to any mystery lover from student to senior citizen.
