A. P. B. - A Whit Pynchon Mystery Reviews
Some background on this series: I recently went to a closing sale of a used book store in York, PA, but it was pretty well picked over when we got there & I did not feel like standing in line to buy six books from an author with whom I was unfamiliar. My curiosity had been piqued, however, so I decided to check with my local library for them. It requires inter-library loans to get them & this one came from Truth or Consequences, NM to me in Lancaster, PA!What a great concept for a series! The protagonist is a cranky investigator a year from retiring to coastal South Carolina who takes up with a reporter, despite his inherent dislike & mistrust of reporters. It is set in West (By God!) Virginia, which is also unusual. This story centers around the serial killings of the wives of local law enforcement officers. It was a good, quick read, which is fortunate, since the late fee on an ILL is hefty!
A. P. B by Dave Pedneau is a great book. I read all of his books when they were first published and I thought they were fantastic. Time has not changed my mind. I was so excited to see they are now available, I would check for them every month or so to see if they were available and I was finally rewarded. The characters are well developed and realistic, having both positive and negative traits, just like you and me. The action and suspense starts right at the beginning and continues throughout the whole book. My jaw dropped after reading the prologue, and that was only the beginning of the suspense. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well-written police procedural or who enjoys a extremely suspenseful book. Pick up this book and give yourself a real treat, you will not be sorry. A. P. B is a fantastic book.
My first book by this author. It had a slow start, but as I read more it got more interesting. I'm not sure about an element that was brought toward the end of the book and how it ended. Guess I'll read the next one to see.
Review: A.P.B. (A Whit Pynchon Mystery) by Dave PedneauI really enjoyed this mystery, which combines down-home cozy with edgy thrills and gory murder (not to mention, some less-fatal small-town troublemaking, such as snooping, gossip, adultery, police brutality and halitosis, envy, fear of change, and on and on). Mr. Pedneau writes well, and brings a small West Virginia foothills community to life. His ongoing protagonist, prosecutorial investigator Whit Pynchon, is a crusty, curmudgeonly, battle-axe, and a talented detective. 18 months remain until he can retire to South Carolina's Low Coast (at 42). It will be West Virginia's loss when he does.
I read the original series and am happy to see it available again in eBook format. The pattern of the serial killer is unique and well written. I also enjoyed the conflict of the main character regarding his liking for a journalist. Time hasn't done anything to this series but help it! Highly recommended!
Liked the book and the characters. The mystery was ok but I wasn't entirely surprised by the outcome. I do want to read a few more in the series to watch the characters develop
A stupid and senseless book. None of the characters is believable neither is the plot.
