Disclaimer: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Troy Lambert. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
You know, I never thought about having a mystery as a novella but now that I’ve tried it, I kind of liked it! It was like a mini episode of Elementary or something, which is a show I absolutely adore. I kind of forgot that not all mysteries take long to solve, although I do love when they do.
In this case, we had a case of overdoses in a certain hospital on patients that were getting ready to discharge. The link between those murders was the nurse taking care of them, and yet she claims she didn’t do anything that would kill them. While the police work that angle, a freelance photographer who is in town on assignment read an article in the newspaper about the murders and ends up helping with the investigation in a unique way.
I liked the simplicity of the mystery, and I like how we get to see a male amateur sleuth get involved, even if he doesn’t consider himself one. He’s an amazing photographer and is always paying attention to even the slightest details during his work. Who knew that would actually work in his favor? I recommend giving this one a try. I enjoyed the audiobook and I’m excited that I’ll get to listen to two more books.

“A good whodunnit read.” (John Hussar)
You won’t find the answer until the very end of this powerful pause-resister of a travel mystery. If you love Jack McEvoy, you’ll love this debut in the Capital City Murders series.

Troy Lambert is a freelance writer, author, editor, and publisher who has dreamed of writing books since he was a young boy. He wrote his first book, George and the Giant Castle, when he was six years old. After being told by teachers, counselors, and many people around him that writing was a great hobby, but not a great way to make a living, Troy explored other money-making options.
After nearly three decades amassing a collection of name tags, hairnets, and various careers, he finally found the way to fulfill his dream of writing full-time and making a living at it. He currently has written nearly thirty books including ghostwriting projects.
Troy lives, works, and plays in Boise, Idaho with his wife and a pack of very talented dogs who are occasionally enlisted to write blog posts and book blurbs. You can learn more about his work at troylambertwrites.com and more about the series at capitalcitymurders.com.
