Murder Me Dead by David Lapham

(I got a copy of this from Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley.)

The story revolves around Steven Russel a man whose rich wife was found hanging from a ceiling fan. The police thinks it’s suicide, but his wife’s family doesn’t think so. He finds love again in his old high school crush, now I won’t spoil anything, but the story goes from bad to worst for Steven. The story includes murder, lust, blackmail, and annoying bad guys (I do not mean in a bad way).

I have to be honest, I’m not a big fan of noir, but I appreciate its beauty, so when I started reading Murder Me Dead… I was surprised. I could not stop reading, I was hooked. The story had me guessing who killed who. This book just grabbed me and did not let go, I finished it in one night. I gripped my phone harder and harder till I got to the ending where everything¬†made sense. There was a bunch of times where I went “What?!?! Why?!?! NO!!” I love it when books make me question things… This book definitely did.

Readers who love mysteries should definitely buy this book (and prepare for its ending)!
