Reviews of Death in the Holler by John G. Bluck

Eloise Hamann reviewed on June 17, 2020

Excellent plot!
Readers expect certain things from mystery novels, and this one delivers—a murder, multiple suspects, fights with shady characters, keeping the reader guessing, and an exciting ending. The protagonist struggles with alcoholism and can’t seem to stay out of ordinary bar battles. As a result, his career depends on him redeeming himself by solving the murder and getting sober.
The author’s well-written descriptions put the reader In the setting of rural Kentucky as well as poorer parts of Louisville. The female characters are not as well fleshed out as male characters. Sometimes the women in the novel behave like women in a horny man’s dream. At times, the dialogue is over-explanatory, but overall well written—great action scenes.
If you like gritty mysteries, I wholeheartedly recommend this mystery novel.
