The brutal slaying weighing heavy on his mind, Mac is anxious to explore every possibility for a break in the cold case—even a suggestion from disgraced former detective Louis Gannon that one of their former friends was the killer.
When the investigator is brutally slain, Mac Faraday rips open the cold case with a ruthless determination to reveal which of his friends was a cold-blooded murderer.
I have read several books in the Mac Faraday series. They all stand alone and they’re all good mysteries. Crimes Past is full of mystery with a little humor on the side. It is the thirteenth book in the series.
As usual, Mac is dealing with more than one mystery at a time. The primary case he’s working on has several twists and multiple murders before it’s solved.
I like Lauren Carr’s writing style because it’s easy to follow and she doesn’t get bogged down with lengthy descriptions.
The characters are great, and I feel like I know most of them. Gnarly, Mac’s dog, is definitely my favorite character. He’s even the mayor even though it’s well-known he’s a thief!
I like the narrator. I’ve come to associate his voice with Lauren Carr’s books/characters. He has good timing and a pleasant voice.
