The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini @JAZZYWINE

Book Description:

Two eighty-year old victims…

…had roofies in their system.

Why would someone give the victims a date-rape drug?

Luca has heard the rumors and now there’s an official complaint. A high-end assisted-living community’s ownership has been accused of abuse. It seems like a straightforward matter to investigate, but is there something more sinister going on?

Is this about euthanasia or greed?

Luca thinks there may be a third option.

With a plate full of burglary investigations, one of which, led to the victims being pistol-whipped, Luca is swamped. Will he be able to unravel the clues and get to the truth?

His gut says there’s a connection…

…but who is behind it?

Is it only about a payday?

You’ll love this next installment in the Luca Mystery series, because of hard-nosed, relentless, detective work and his mind for unraveling the lies and deception.

Get it now.

My Thoughts:

The Grandpa Killer is the tenth book in the Luca mystery series. I was first introduced to Luca in the first book in the series, Am I The Killer? Whilst not having read the other books in the series, I still found this to read easily as a standalone. If anything, I felt like I got to know Luca better in this one.

We get a good dose of what home life is like for Luca. It was good to see how someone deals with this sort of work as well as everything not being overly rosy at home when his wife receives some news that could have a big impact on their family. It’s an eye opener to see a male’s perspective when it comes to these sort of issues.

The case itself is a horrible one. There is something as equally horrifying of acts of crime against the elderly as there is against children. Both to a certain aspect are helpless and I wanted Luca to to solve this case and quickly.

The Grandpa Killer was a book I flew through. I was as interested in Luca’s home life as I was in his working one. The author gives us a good combination, keeping me invested in the story at all times. If you like crime books that are not to dark, then this series is well worth a try. Whilst still a fairly dark and gripping read, it is more crime mystery than crime thriller.

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

The Grandpa Killer is available to purchase from Amazon.
