REVIEW The Slayer

The Slayer

CHARACTERS Å The Slayer A year and a half ago a woman's body was found floating in the heart shaped pond of a Halifax city park Since then the case has grown colder than the North Atlantic With no leads no suspects and under pressure to solve the case the Cold Case Unit is so desperate they've resorted to a very long shot A long shot named Danielle Renaud RCMP Constable Danielle Renaud is thrilled when she's finally given the chance to prove herself wor. Whoa here s something I wasn t expecting I purchased The Slayer primarily so I could get free shipping for a recent book order At the time I ordered it I was not even sure that it was a mystery The book when it arrived was an attractive size and it was well formatted accessible for my taste than the often unwieldy RegalCrestuest books Because it was almost certainly printed by CreateSpace I assumed it to be self published under the aegis of Frisson Books So far so goodThe prologue although just as unnecessary as most prologues was written better and held my interest better than most Then we meet RCMP Constable Danielle not Dannie please Renaud who has left her birthplace near uebec to take a job in Halifax Nova Scotia At first blush she is simply Claire McNab s Carole Ashton transplanted from Australia to Canada an incredibly beautiful statuesue out blonde with a hard to match work ethic But I think Danielle is a rounded professionally written character than Carol And she has a good backstory She has a habit of speaking her ideas into a tape recorder a convincing and fairly uniue motif So still good In fact once you get through the first dozen chapters and figure out who the characters are The Slayer is a pretty remarkable book On loan from her department to the Special Crimes Unit Danielle is assigned to look into a cold case the death of a nurse a year and a half before Danielle digs into this seemingly impossible to solve case and manages to dig up a few new facts no one else had been able to find while trying to juggle a personal life that includes no less than five women dancing around each other like mating birds Misdirections abound but they are misdirections well conceived The reader along with Danielle learns a lot about forensics and psychology without the author making us think of homework Danielle s knowledge of different types of data searches gets a bit forced but everything else including a knowledge of veterinary supplies and types of drugs are spot on believable And hey LaPierre knows her way around the bedroom too you can look forward to a couple of delicious sex scenes that are almost worth the price of the book plus shippingThe author takes a lot of chances and almost always gets away with what she attempts The plot often careens like a tilt a whirl but rather than thinking that there might be a method to the madness I suspect that there is genius in that madness instead The Slayer is simply one of the most well plotted books I have ever read Add this to a plethora of interesting characters and a total lack of typos and you have the makings of a must read But the book is not all gold and emeralds It is difficult at times to figure out who is romancing who a couple of these relationships are not properly brought to a close there are a few clumsy point of view shifts needless dream seuences are thrown in here and there and don t even get me started on the last paragraphAll in all though it is an exciting and well written mystery I recommend this book pretty highly and wish the author would tweak it just a bit And here s a clue Books published at CreateSpace are free to revise and the author doesn t have to even buy any copies herself Ditto for e books Second edition anyone As it is now I ll call it 37Note I read what is almost certainly the first printing of this bookAnother Note This review is included in my book The Art of the Lesbian Mystery Novel along with information on over 930 other lesbian mysteries by over 310 authors
