Death Benefits is a well crafted, suspensful mystery. The story brings us from California, to Florida to New England. It starts with an ambitious,young business woman out to make a sale. She seems as real a person so me, as one of my collegues. (Okay maybe a little more aggressive) But I had a real sense of who she was and even liked her.
Then she is gone. Next we meet two very interesting men who are characters, interesting, funny and real.
Thomas Perry is a master of stringing details around the story to hook up in and keep us hanging on. Of course, he brings us to a surprise ending.
I love this book.
Very well written. Suspenseful, sometimes funny with very interesting and imperfect characters. I can't wait to read the next one "Murder in Retribution."
The epilogue was very clever. It could have been the first chapter, but was very cleverly written to be the epilogue.
My favorite scene was in the epilogue when Action first met Kathleen,
I listened to it 3 times in one week.
Good plot development, characters with some emotional depth. But not too much. Nothing is more boring in my opinion than characters who tell us in great detail their emotional response.
My favorite part of the story was when Robin accepted the job working for Cormoran's job offer.
I love the Hamish Macbeth series. The characters, the humour, the plot make for a great escape into a wonderful gentle world that you wish really existed.
