In It For The Money
by David Burnsworth
on Tour September 11 – October 11, 2017
Lowcountry Private Investigator Blu Carraway needs a new client. He’s broke and the tax man is coming for his little slice of paradise. But not everyone appreciates his skills. Some call him a loose cannon. Others say he’s a liability. All the ex-Desert Storm Ranger knows is his phone hasn’t rung in quite a while. Of course, that could be because it was cut off due to delinquent payments.
Lucky for him, a client does show up at his doorstep—a distraught mother with a wayward son. She’s rich and her boy’s in danger. Sounds like just the case for Blu. Except nothing about the case is as it seems. The jigsaw pieces—a ransom note, a beat-up minivan, dead strippers, and a missing briefcase filled with money and cocaine—do not make a complete puzzle. The first real case for Blu Carraway Investigations in three years goes off the rails.
And that’s the way he prefers it to be.

After a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tennessee and fifteen years in the corporate world, he made the decision to write a novel. He is the author of both the Brack Pelton and the Blu Carraway Mystery Series. Having lived in Charleston on Sullivan’s Island for five years, the setting was a foregone conclusion. He and his wife call South Carolina home.

This the first of Burnsworth’s books that I’ve read — but it definitely won’t be the last! Living in the South, I appreciated his accuracy on the descriptions of places, personalities of the people, etc. The book starts out a little slower that I typically like with a mystery but with a good base, the story really had good traction on the ground it’d been laid. Blu has a bit of quirkiness that I like and it’s enough to balance out the serious, tough, rogue side that he has as an investigator. Money has a way of driving us to do things – no matter what the risk – and Blu lives up to every part of the risk! Burnsworth created a nice twist of a mystery here because I couldn’t put it down as I got through about a third of the book. He didn’t play out the mystery in a generic manner. It really made me think!
I received a complimentary copy of the book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
