Flight of the Tarantula Hawk - A Lance Underphal MysteryFlight of the Tarantula Hawk - A Lance Underphal Mystery by Michael Allan Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you thought the first book - Dark Side of Sunset Pointe - was any good, this book will blow your mind. The writing is mesmerizing and the execution of each separate theme is good enough to keep you thinking about the story long after you have finished.

The reader meets Lance again, this time he is more comfortable with his 'gift' or curse of second sight. Unlike the first book, Flight of the Tarantula Hawk introduces more characters for the reader to discover on different levels be it from mindset, background or personality.

My favourite scene was the introduction from "Desert Vistas" which bonds character and setting seamlessly. It isn't the first time Scott does this throughout the novel and for this he deserves much praise. Most authors focus on either thinking the reader can only comprehend character or setting but not both.

For many of us at the book club, it was more than lovely to read self-published novel with no errors and the jerky feel of 'maybe this shouldn't be there.' Highly recommended read for any mystery lover who enjoys twists, characters you'll love or hate and writing that will leave you salivating for more. Must read.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
