Carl Brookins The Case of the Yellow Diamond-A Sean Sean Mystery

I received this book courtesy of Ms. Nunn for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: Sean Sean (no, I did not stutter) has been hired by Tod and Josie Bartelme. See Josie wants to find out what happened to her great-uncle’s plane that went down off the coast of Yap Island during World War II. For some reason, somebody wants the couple to cease their efforts in finding the plane. What could possibly cause a person to take such drastic action in order to stop a woman’s genealogical project? Sean is willing to find out.

Story Telling: What do you call an old fashioned private-eye novel that’s been crossed with a newer suspense novel? I’m not sure, but I know that it’s a mystery. It says so on the cover.

Likes: There is a phrase that I live by. “Beware of the tiny.” The smaller the person, the bigger the attitude/threat level. Sean Sean definitely has the attitude, we get that on straight from the start.

Josie and Tod seemed to support each other. They make a good couple.

Dislikes: Honestly, the antagonists didn’t make much sense to me. Certain actions seemed to make them more of a target. Also, what was the purpose of shooting Cal?

Favorite Character: Oh, it would be the Revulons, Betsy and Belinda. They were fun.

Favorite Quote: We get this one from Sean’s meeting with the two guys in the know. “You been reading those detective novels again, aint’cha, Tommy?”

Favorite Scene: The time Sean spent wit Tommy and Abe was great, but not as kind as what he did for Abe when Tommy had his attack.

Conclusion: This was a pretty good novel. I just wished that I knew for certain why Cal was shot.
