11.04.21: MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW OF “LET’S SAY JACK KENNEDY KILLED THE GIRL”
We’re very excited about the impending publication of LET’S SAY JACK KENNEDY KILLED THE GIRL, the first book in the Jack Griffin Detective Series by award-winning author William F. Crandell. Even more exciting is our first early review, received by Midwest Book Review. An excerpt of the review, penned by Diane Donovan, follows:
Satisfying twists and turns will intrigue mystery readers who might not see some of them coming, while newcomers to the genre will find the emotional inspections of both Griffin and Kennedy drive the plot with connections that make the story hard to put down beyond the mystery it presents.
The result is a compelling tale highly recommended for a wider audience than the usual P.I. enthusiast alone. Between Let’s Say Jack Kennedy Killed the Girl’s catchy title and intriguing personalities, it should reach into novel and historical fiction reader circles alike, with vivid, unique brand of action and political and psychological interplays that make for a heck of a story.
We couldn’t agree more. Click on the MBR logo below to read Ms. Donovan’s review in its entirety.
