Blacklight Blue: The Enzo Files, Book 3 | [Peter May]

Blacklight Blue: The Enzo Files, Book 3

Enzo MacLeod, a Scot teaching in southwest France, has confidently bet that he can crack seven notorious murders described in a book on cold cases. He has, in fact, solved the first two crimes, but the third is far from his mind right now. He's just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and he's become the victim of someone who seems intent on destroying his credit and his relationships - and getting him arrested for murder.

Publisher's Summary

Enzo MacLeod, a Scot teaching in southwest France, has confidently bet that he can crack seven notorious murders described in a book on cold cases. He has, in fact, solved the first two crimes, but the third is far from his mind right now. He's just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and he's become the victim of someone who seems intent on destroying his credit and his relationships - and getting him arrested for murder.

This is one instance where his Scottish stubbornness might pay off. Having established a safe house to protect his loved ones, Enzo sets to work. Are his personal woes somehow connected to the digging he's done into the brutal murder of a rent boy in a Paris apartment 16 years ago? What further remnants of evidence will he find? And can he stay alive long enough to catch the long-hidden killer?

    "Absorbing!"

    I first read Black House and was totally enthralled with the story and characters so I moved on to the Enzo Files. Peter May is an outstanding writer. The story of a Scottish forensic scientist, Enzo MacLeod, working in France engages the reader right from the start. The plot twists and turns, the characters are so real and powerful and do not take secondary roles to the story line, the ending is always a surprise and just as importantly for me, each scene is painted with the skills of a great artist so much so that, at the risk of a cliche, you are at Enzo's elbow.
    Finally, the quality and level of enjoyment of an audio book depends greatly on the narrator. I can't imagine Anne Perry's novels without Davina Porter or James Lee Burke without Will Patton. Simon Vance gives an incredible performance as the story-teller. The voices of each character are distinctive and convincing. How delightful to hear the conversation between a Scotsman and a French woman; it is amazing to realize that the voices belong to the same person.
    Blacklight Blue, Book 3 is a summer must-read.

    "Ready for the next in the series"

    The most definitive comment I can make about this book and its series is that Peter May knows how to write a damn good story. I devoured his Lewis Trilogy and am impressed with his Enzo series, this one better than the first. May has perfected the character driven thriller, creating characters that drive the action rather than action that defines the characters. Enzo himself is a marvelous creation – a very smart man who is ruled far more by his heart than his head where his loved ones are concerned. In this outing his worries are for himself as well as for his daughters and friends, obscuring the truth and keeping the villain in the lead for much of the story. I admit that I found holes in the plot that helped push the story on the path the author had constructed. But when scoring the overall experience, one thing trumped all – I stayed in the parking garage at work and in the driveway at home to prolong the listening. That’s worth 5 stars.

    Simon Vance deserves a huge measure of the credit for the quality of this series. Not only does he work magic with the myriad voices and accents, but he strikes exactly the right emotional note throughout the narrative, knowing when to be subtle and when to heat things up. I can’t imagine any other voice for Enzo.

    Story
    "Enzo Files’ return to excellence!"

    This episode of the Enzo Files is much better than the last. It includes an unsolved case, the usual characters, dangerous obstructions, and Enzo’s tenacity to find the truth no matter what.

    Enzo MacLeod intends to solve the third cold case in Raffin’s book. Even before he begins, someone arranges lethal attacks on a close acquaintance and a member of his immediate family, Enzo is cleverly framed for the murder of his friend, and his personal life is manipulated by a medical issue and the arrival of a new lover.

    There are enough complications, characters, and twists to keep the story moving.

    Simon Vance is an excellent and appropriate narrator.

    Story
    "Cat and mouse with a killer across Europe"

    Enzo and his family are targeted by a killer and he must go on the run with his entire family while trying to solve the identity of the hidden mastermind. They proceed to play an international game of cat and mouse across Europe and England with the killer always at their heels.

    This was an exciting adventure in the mold of The Bourne Identity or The Da Vinci Code, where the hero must go on the run while trying to figure out hidden clues and motives. Each chapter brought another revelation while at the same time increasing the danger to Enzo and his family. The close proximity of his family also forced Enzo to deal with the conflicts in his own family, between himself and the oldest daughter that he abandoned and between the two sisters who grew up not knowing each other.

    Simon Vance is back as the narrator in this story after having been absent for book 2 of the series and he does another outstanding job. He made it easy to follow the story despite the frequent changes in viewpoints.

    "A good read"

    I enjoyed this book very much and it brought me back for more of Peter May. A detective story with a forensic touch, more intellectual than cops and robbers. The hero is believable, fallible and just like us. The storyline is fast but well described. Peter May obviously knows his forensic science. In short a well written detective story with a good plot and likeable hero
