Review: Fangs Out
Fangs Out by David Freed
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fang's Out, David Freed's second novel was a humorous & mind gripping mystery. Flying instructor Cordell Logan takes on a little, on the side investigation job for extra needed cash that he thought was going to be easy money & a practical vacation. WRONG! The title Fangs Out struck me as a vampire book at first because I was not familiar with the term "Fangs out" as it is used here, & was pleasantly surprised by this twisting & turning mystery.
I have not had the pleasure of reading the first Logan mystery, but learned a lot via the amazing character building that did not bore, but adequately described the colorful characters in Logan's life. I could not help but like Cordell Logan, as he takes the journey from working for Uncle Sam & doing what it took to get the job done, to trying to find peace via Buddhist teachings. It adds a lot to the various situations he finds himself in that he usually points out what a Buddhist would of would not be thinking or doing as he is trying to save his neck.
As Logan digs further into the death of Ruth that he was paid to investigate, others related to the case begin to turn up dead . . . hence, the plot thickens.
Logan basically ends up in a mess himself thinking he was going to basically be on a vacation with his ex wife Savannah who he hopes to rekindle with. I could not put this book down between the mystery & the humor of Logan's relationship with his landlady, his pet, & near everyone he meets.
The book moves along at a good pace as a little of Logan's personality & history is given along the way. I love Logan's dry humor & actually found his nack for getting into predicaments constantly as entertaining as the mystery itself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to provide an honest review.
