Shadow Informant by Edita Petrick {Book Review}

Shadow Informant is a murder mystery that has some unconventional murder methods. The victims all have a 4 diameter hole vaporized from their chest, which appears to be “inhuman.”

Carly is a homicide detective assigned to the case. She’s pretty amazing, and I like her style. There’s a lot of “paranormal” feel to this, but you can’t be certain, since they are inquiring with the military, on what they know about weapons that can vaporize five pounds of flesh out of someones chest.

This book could be considered paranormal or out of the ordinary with the murder mystery genre, which I found to be super exciting the whole way through the book. As the reader, you’re uncertain on what’s going on, and are following the mystery alongside Carly, and the other detectives on the case. I was uncertain on where the author would be taking the plot, and if was going to have a supernatural tone. I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it, so you’ll just have to check it out to see if they can solve the murders by reasonable explanation, or if there’s more to this then what can be explained.

Everything was connected in this book, and Petrick doesn’t spend a lot of time with information that does not apply to the story line. I really like her writing style, and have just found out there are a bunch of other books written by Petrick, which I’m definitely adding to my shelf to read soon!!

I give this book 5/5. It’s not your typical murder mystery plot, and will have you hooked from the first paragraph!
