The Pangram Killer
A Serena Triton Detective Novel
Brandon M. Lipani
There are a lot of pros and cons to this book. Knowing it is a first effort by an author I have cut this a little more slack than if it had been a seasoned writer. First I must say it was a pretty good store, it really kept my attention, and Serene Triton the main character is a really interesting detective. I enjoyed watching the mystery unfold and even though I do not read a lot of mysteries currently this was a fun novella.
There is a killer on the loose and all the victims are left with a panagram note taunting the police. At first the victims appear to be random but soon a link appears, they all seem to be related to the same criminal case. The pace is quick and the action fast in this book.
Now to some pros and cons.
Great first effort
A few grammatical or spelling errors
Is really a novella or extended short story not a novel
Print version is listed at 154 pages, ebook is actually 80
Ending is really not believable
Most of the pros and cons are self-explanatory but I wanted to elaborate on the last con. Even in fiction we can only extend out disbelief so far. I cannot equate Serena Triton's actions at the end of the story with all the information provide by and about her throughout the book. However that being said it was still an enjoyable read, good entertainment and to be honest I hope we get more books about Triton in the near future, I know I would give them a read.
