A man walks into a bar, and dies. It isn’t just any bar, it’s the Pirate’s Cove located on the Isle of Palms, a barrier island just north of the Charleston, South Carolina harbor. Ex-Marine Brack Pelton tries to stop the murder and almost dies himself. The victim, Skip Romeo, has a shady past and some interesting friends. The friend he’d planned on meeting at the bar before he got shot was lowcountry Private Investigator Blu Carraway.
Brack Pelton hates that someone shot up his bar and Blu Carraway hates that someone gunned down his friend. Both want revenge and justice. And both tend to leave a lot of collateral damage in their wake. Their team-up is inevitable. Individually, they’re each a force to be reckoned with. Together, they’re like an atomic bomb blast at ground zero. Pelton and Carraway and Charleston will never be the same.
My Book Review:
In Blu Heat, the introductory novella into the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series, author David Burnsworth transports the reader to the sultry lowcountry setting of Isle of Palm, SC for an intriguing Blu Carraway Southern noir / mystery adventure.
When Skip Romeo is killed while waiting to meet up with lowcountry PI Blu Carraway in Brack Pelton's Pirate's Cove bar on the Isle of Palm, all hell breaks out! Both Brack and Blu are determined to find the killer, so they team up and engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse seeking revenge and justice throughout Charleston.
Author David Burnsworth weaves a fast-paced and suspenseful tale that follows Blu and Brack's investigative journey as it takes them all over Charleston in search of the killer. The reader is easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting, it is filled with enough action and unsuspecting twists and turns that takes the reader on one hell of a thrilling roller coaster ride.
As a fan of Southern fiction, I loved the richly descriptive Charleston setting and the surrounding lowcountry SC areas. I was intrigued by the author's creativity of intertwining his previous Brack Pelton Mystery Series featuring Brack Pelton with the new Blu Carraway Mystery Series featuring low country PI Blu Carraway. The author masterly weaves one hell of a new explosive mystery, where Blu and Brack team up and embark on a dangerous adventure to find the killer and seek justice!
With an intriguing cast of characters; witty dialogue and dramatic interactions; and a richly descriptive setting that makes a person want to visit the picturesque city of Charleston, its historic landmarks, and the surrounding lowcountry areas; Blu Heat is an awesome debut mystery series novella that has the true essence of a classic Southern noir mystery!
RATING: 5 STARS
