Review: Your Last Lie (Tyrone Swift, #6) by Gretta Mulrooney


Print Length: 305 pages
Publisher: Joffe Books (February 10, 2019)

From Goodreads.com: Swift is asked to investigate the murder of a pilot, Greg Roscoe. He was stabbed and his body mutilated. Swift establishes that there are a number of people who might have wished Roscoe harm. The man was involved in numerous affairs, gambling and dodgy business deals and has managed to alienate friends, students, his wife and ex-wife.

The truths that Swift uncovers bring heartache and sorrow to Roscoe’s family and cause major problems in his own life and publicity that could damage his business.

My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

This is one of those stories that technically stands alone, however there are so many mentions of things that have happened in prior books that it does make you wonder what else you missed out on. 

As a first time reader to this series, I will say that the author does have an interesting writing style. This is both a good and a bad thing in this case, as they do tend to be very descriptive, oftentimes in my opinion, taking longer than necessary to describe every little thing down to the last detail. Sometimes this helped the reader feel as though they were a part of the story, but for me at least, more often than not I felt like it was overkill and in fact forgot where the story-line had been going before all of the unnecessary details.

When you get down to the ins and outs of this story, the person originally murdered wasn't very likable, which obviously opens the pool of suspects up considerably, but in this case, not only did it seem like (pardon the pun) overkill, but the sheer number of people became a bit hard to differentiate between. Also, when it came down to solving the actual murder? It wasn't really a surprise who did it. 

Don't get me wrong, there are a few twists and surprises in this story, and I may give this author another chance down the road. This one didn't appeal to me on a big level, but it was a good way to pass the time and I do believe it will appeal to those who enjoy detailed whodunit novels.

DISCLAIMERI received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
