A killer haunts Prophet, and this time it’s personal
The discovery of a body at the Thompson Cabins sets off a chain of events that hits too close to home for Sheriff Gabriel Thompson. When his brother Sam becomes a prime suspect in the murder investigation, Gabriel is forced to keep secrets from Tiber and call in outside help as he fights to prove Sam’s innocence. It’s a nightmare that becomes all consuming.
Tiber Russo, animal whisperer, is dealing with problems of his own. A stalker threatens him and his entire menagerie of pets. With Gabriel wrapped up in the new case, Tiber tries to solve the mystery on his own. Who in the sleepy town of Prophet wants to do him harm? But when the threats turn lethal, Tiber finds himself in over his head.
Tiber and Gabriel have solved two murders together and started a deep relationship. But this time the forces ranged against them are personal and the target is on them, and the backs of everyone they love. With each of them isolated trying to protect the other, their strength is diminished. Even with the love they share, can they make it out of this alive?
There is no secret that this reader loves a great mystery, police
action and a dose of romance. Yet again, authors Scott & Easton
regaled us with a suspenseful read in Zenith, the final book in A
Lake Prophet Mystery. The bonus of soulful M/M characters was the cherry on
top of the sundae.
Gabriel and Tiber once again are thrusted into the limelight of another
murder in their otherwise quiet town, but this time it’s personal. The gentle giant
sheriff was the perfect partner to the quiet animal behaviorist who would
rather snuggle with his four-legged friends and Gabriel than other humans. Good
thing Gabriel had his number and together each complimented the other’s
personality and demeanor.
The final book in the trilogy, Zenith was everything I wanted
and sad to see it end. I may have said this before, but I don’t always read a
book simply because it is labeled M/M. I want a book with substance, mystery, well-written
characters; if there happen to be M/M characters, then all the better- it’s
just not the first on the list. Having said that, authors Scott and Easton
delivered everything I wanted in a good read. Prolific writers, they knew just
how to draw the reader into the fold and kept me sitting on the edge of my
seat; wondering who dun it and why, attempting to connect the pieces. My only
drawback, I wish the books were longer. Some of my favorite authors, Daniel
Silva, Lisa Jewell, known for devouring mystery or thriller books; now Scott
& Easton moved over in the column to said category.
