A Prairie Homicidal Companion - The Best Landon To Date!Rating: 5 of 5Author: Brian LandonFormat: Kindle, PaperbackAfter the on-stage murder of aptly named "Unlucky Larry" at the Fitzgerald Theater, detective Doyle Malloy is on the case. What he finds is much more complex and personal than he would have ever imagined. Threads to his investigation point to a potential serial killer! But a killer that had been put away and died years ago by Malloy’s own father. So who could be perpetrating these new crimes? Or was the wrong person convicted years ago. Doyle must know. Unfortunately, the danger is much greater than any of his previous investigations and when his Malloy’s girlfriend is kidnapped and his friend grievously injured, Doyle wonders if he is in over his head.Brian Landon's private investigator "Doyle Malloy" is a wonderfully rich character and previous installments in the series feature his unique foibles and humorous way of solving murders almost by accident. As such, the mysteries themselves were the background vehicle to showcase Malloy's unique Midwestern Pink Panther-esque style. But in "A Prairie Homicidal Companion" not only does Landon stay true to Malloy and the quirky humor he is known for, but the serial killer and solving the mystery is in itself a very compelling story. With this work, Landon has really stepped up his game and taken the Malloy mysteries to an entirely new level. If you have read previous works by Landon, you are sure to be pleased with this latest volume.“A Prairie Homicidal Companion” is the best in the series, in this reader's opinion. I can't wait for the next one!
This is the first book I have read by Minnesota Author Brian Landon. It won't be my last. It is well written and weaves a mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end and...make you look at a pickle in a different way.
This is just a fun series. I have enjoyed all the books in the series, they have been quick, funny reads that have kept me entertained. Hope for more in the series.
Love it and can't wait to get more books with Doyle in the story! It's a classic tale I've read many times. But new in that it now involves pickles and an old lady that can hold her own. At one point I forgot about the stage murder as I was so involved with the North Dakota crimes. So when that came back into play it felt like a surge of excitement. I love that it takes place where I grew up and just north of where I currently live. Close to home stories always makes me closer to the story I'm reading. And how the killer is "ended" had me cheering out loud. I did not see that coming! It was a pleasure meeting you last weekend Mr. Author and I hope to meet you again at another Books and Beer Pop-Up Stand.
This was my favorite of the 3. As an adopted Minnesotan it makes total sense to gather some friends for an impromptu trip to North Dakota to do a good deed, like catch a serial killer or at least warn potential victims. The characters were the most relatable in this story, and their actions weren't all that far fetched, even Razor. I read the book in 2 days because I couldn't put it down. I was reading the end chapters through the Oscar Awards. The murder takes place almost immediately to a character I was looking forward to getting to know. Sometimes that's better than losing them midway. There is less baffoonery than the last adventure, while still keeping the dry humor. It had more serious moments with a job on the line. This is the one that makes you beg for more.
Just plain-old, homespun dumb.
