Title: Sleeping with the Crawfish
Author: D J Donaldson
Review: This was a better thriller then the last one I read - more mystery and thrill for sure. I am not keen on the degrading comments about women- no matter how old the characters are-that was a bit off putting for sure. But the mystery was good and fast paced it kept me sweeping the pages since it was on my Kindle.
I liked the characters and the mystery with the twist at the end. I really did not see that coming until it did and then I was like – How did I miss that? I enjoyed the story and the relationships between the characters. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon. The close calls the characters found themselves in were scary and heart stopping as they worked out ways out of the scrapes and near death experiences- I would be dead if it were me in similar situations-not a fast thinker or coordinated in many ways- thank heaven my life is boring and no one wants to kill me.
This is a series but this is the only one I have read so far and it wasn’t difficult to get caught up knowing what was happening or had happened between the characters in the past books. If you like a good mystery/thriller and I think this is a good one for you to read. So check it out!!!
