THE POET’S FUNERAL (Amateur Sleuth-Las Vegas-Cont) – G+
Daniel, John M - 2nd mystery
Poisoned Pen Press, 2005- Hardcover
Guy Mallon is a small publisher of poetry books. While attending the annual ABA conference, the first author published by Guy, and former lover, turns up dead. The police decide it's an accident, but Guy thinks it's murder.
Those who publish, write, sell or collect books will probably most enjoy this.. Even so, there are delightful, realistically quirky characters, and a unique style of telling the story. I liked Guy and the relationship with his partner of both business and pleasure, Carol. It's light, fun and quite good.
