What all has been going on while I was out for a couple of weeks?
Well, I had the privilege of getting an ARC of Murmurs of Insanity by Gerrie Ferris Finger.
Teen Johndro Phillips is missing after witnessing a drug deal turn to murder in his Atlanta neighborhood. Johndro is a spotter and runner for drug lord Devus Dontel “Big DD” McFersen, who was acquitted when Johndro couldn’t testify against himself.
Lake asks Dru to talk to his ex-wife, Linda. Seems her half-brother’s predilection for young women has gotten him mixed up with the student art community, two of whom go missing. Damian Hansel, his friend Arne Trammel and the mysterious Cho Martine devised a Conceptual Art Performance to shake-up the tranquil community. Articles of Damian’s are found on nature trails, and, absent a body, the police think it’s a treasure hunt. Dru thinks not.
I really thought this book was very good. Gerrie Ferris Finger did an excellent job in writing this book! Her characters were so well thought out. They had just enough quirkiness to where you didn’t think they were over the top weird. Not to mention all of the twist that were in his plots. This is a very light mystery novel, compared to some of the other ones that I have read. But, that’s what makes it interesting. Some of my friends aren’t huge readers, yet I would gladly recommend this book to them, knowing that they would enjoy it.
This is a series. Hopefully I will be able to get the others and read them. This book has made me want to read all future novels by Gerrie Ferris Finger!
