Paying The Piper

   (5 reviews)

One small town, two murders, and countless suspects. Irreverent police chief, Quent, and his reluctant side-kick, Cale McCoy, must discover the truth behind the crimes before anyone else loses their life. Circumstances become even more complicated when new kid in town, Drew Marcus, turns out to be the biggest mystery of all.

Do you smoke? Get a pack of cigarettes and a lighter.

Crave chocolate? Find a bag of M&Ms.

Enjoy wine? Open a new bottle. Wineglass optional.

Make yourself comfortable and get ready to lose yourself in a great story.

You may want to use the restroom before you start; putting this book down will be difficult.

 

Take a bucolic setting, toss in an acerbic police chief, a troubled rich boy, and a handsome newcomer. Add assorted small-town denizens, mix well, and voila! "Paying the Piper" is a delicious crime drama cooked just tight.

 

Ms. Drew has concocted a tale full of cliches that happen to work well together. The cheating wife, the town gossip, the bumbling nerd, and the hard-drinking bar owner are but a few of those stereotypes. A fast-paced thriller with just the right amount of humor provided primarily by the delightful Quent. For those seeking a deeper meaning, the effects of self-denial, misplaced guilt, and dysfunctional families will give you plenty to ponder.

 

It's rare for me to award five stars to a story but I didn't hesitate in this case. One of the most enjoyable offerings on GA.

Clever writing... witty dialogue. That’s all you need to know about this whodunit. Any story with scotch as a main character is aces in my book. A definite must read.

Absolutely loved this story.

 

It was full of everything, grumpy Quent the cop, blackmail, killers, crazy people, and women who knit slippers. There is love, hate, guilt, humour and just excellent story telling.

 

I had a great time reading this!  To me, this story was very well written, some of the best I've read. Has to be right up there with the work done by @AC Benus
