Review: Voodoo Ridge by David Freed

Genre: Mystery

Rating: Yay!

 

We were lucky enough to review the first Logan mystery, Flat Spin, but it was Cate who got to read it. Lucky girl.

Voodoo Ridge coverSo this book follows Logan, and his ex-wife Savannah, as we find out the first big set of news – she’s pregnant with his baby. And despite their troubled past, it’s off to Nevada to get married. Well, remarried. And that’s when the trouble starts.

Logan sites a downed airplane near where he’s landing, and when he informs the police, he gets caught up helping them find it, putting off the hurried wedding as each new twist forces him back into the investigation. One with two bodies—one old, and one new.

The whole story from beginning to end was simply awesome. The complexities of Logan’s life and the murder mystery is interwoven well, with enough suspense on both sides to keep the action flowing from beginning to end. Interspersed with the story are tidbits from David’s vast knowledge. As someone who’s not well-versed enough to intimately know airplane history, I was proud to remember the Twin Beechcraft, and I am beyond grateful for his deft touch of explaining enough to give me a better understanding of aircraft, but not enough to drag down the story.

I’m loathe to tell too much of the story itself, as the fun in a mystery is picking at the details to see if you can figure it out before the end. Everything is so well put together that I found it hard to put the book down until the very end.

All in all, this is a fabulous read, and a solid addition to anyone reading list. I highly recommend not only this book, but theentire series.

Go on now. Shoo. Go pick up the first two, and get this one when it comes out in May!
