Dead on Sunday Reviews
In addition, I am re-angered by the attitude toward independent women shown by certain groups in the book.
"While I enjoy the entire Jason Lynx series, I feel this is the weakest one. The character of the murder victim was so offensive that it was hard to understand why anyone even cared who killed him - he was even less sympathetic than most. When you finally find out the events leading up to the murder, you basically feel like cheering. On the other hand, the sheer number of plausible suspects made for a better mystery.[return][return]I also do not understand why the publisher would take such an intriguing title as ""Looking for the Aardvark"" and change it to the incredibly boring ""Dead on Sunday"". While I admit the second was appropriate, and that religion is important in the story, I would never have picked up a book with that title."
If you like B.J. Oliphant's Shirley McClintock series, you'll also enjoy A.J. Orde's Jason Lynx mysteries. Oliphant and Orde are both pseudonyms of talented SF/fantasy author Sheri S. Tepper. Dead on Sunday, set in Santa Fe, New Mexico, involves the killing of an inept, mentally unbalanced, decidedly uncharismatic preacher whose interpretation of certain parts of Scripture is chillingly literal. Well-written and thought-provoking, this series features intelligent, complex, and opinionated main characters. And I really liked the delightful animals: the 120-pound Kuvasz dog, Bela; the 20-pound Maine coon cat, Schnitz; and the latter's 30-pound father, Critter.
4th in the series, and it just feel tired and overblown. I probably read too many of these in a row. Got to space these mysteries! I also just read one by Charles Todd, A Test of Wills, and perhaps this suffered by comparison.
Another good story of mystery and intrigue. This was a good fast read. I like Jason and I'm glad I borrowed all the books the library had at one time. The story was good and I wish there were more.
This is also Sheri Tepper.
one of the best in series
mystery - good characters
A passable and fun murder mystery. Not one of Sheri Tepper's best, but still interesting.
