BOOK REVIEW: "Dismantling Vindictiveness" by Lillian R. Melendez
After reading Auditory Viewpoint, I eagerly dove into Dismantiling Vindictiveness, by Lillian Melendez. It's quite difficult to find a good crime novel now. I still read Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
But Ms. Melendez succeeded in writing great, quick fiction that leaves the reader wondering, "What will happen next?"
In Dismantiling Vindictiveness we meet a very involved cast of characters who work at, respectively, two different architechture firms, a local paper and a gift shop.
Both firms are having disparate troubles and the CEOs decide to merge...even though it didn't work out well years before.
But slanderous stories start appearing in the paper about one of the firms, and the CEO's ex goes undercover to investigate those, which center around missing money, and the mysteriously deliberate hit-and-run murder committed on an employee.
All while one young employee receives mysterious letters warning him about something untoward happening.
This is a classic whodunnit with a story so involved it seems like Agatha Christie decided to write an episode of General Hospital (and I mean that as a compliment!).Check this book out as soon as you can if you enjoy crime novels. It's a fast, fun, head-scratching read!
