Detective Peter Mackenzie knew crime and knew his job. With The Cemetery Man schedule to leave the next body on the next grave Peter doesn’t have time for the puzzling Alexandra Madison. Her wild stories of a stolen life and family and friends who don’t remember her. Her last resort, she tells him is him and the relationship they shared. Peter doesn’t need this nonsense and his eccentric father walking in only irritates him more. Until his father utters the name everyone forgot, giving hope to Alexandra for the first time.
Time is their enemy as the weekend grows closer and on Sunday, Peter knows another body will be waiting.
What he doesn’t know, what he couldn’t know, even with Alexandra delving deeper into his father’s past, the victims are not random. They are chosen with reason and the monster who takes them is not done. She is coming for one of them.
I took a leap out of familiar reading territory when I read Magic Man by Jacqui Jacoby. And I must say that the book surprised me in a good way. The story is tight and engrossing. The mystery surrounding the characters garnered my full attention and as the plot swayed up and down I found myself enthralled as the mystery begins to unravel. Detective Peter Mackenzie has grit and commands your attention. Cemetery Man simply left me breathless and intrigued. Alex Madison stands firm in what she believes in and she lets Detective Peter know just that. And when she and Peter comes together to find the person behind the killings only adds nail-biting suspense into the mix. Overall, Magic Man will leave you breathless and stunned as the revelations take over and the story comes to a sharp crescendo!
Good writing, unique story and likable characters.
