Gator Kill


This Review:★★★★☆

Average Rating: 4 ★★★★☆

The second of the Truman Smith Mysteries: Gator Kill takes our relentless PI into the swampy wilds of backcountry Texas. His client finds a dead, skinned Alligator on his land and wants answers.

As with all the Truman Smith books, what starts out quite simple soon grows into a tangled web of deceit, intrigue, money and power. Mysterious noises are heard, strange barrels appear, bodies start appearing, and all manner of other strange goings on occur – especially when Truman is nearly run over.

With cautious resolve, ingenuity and a devotion to the task, Tru’ sifts through the information, investigates all the leads and gradually works his way to the answers – which only leads him into more danger, as blackmail and dodgy dealings are uncovered.

As similarly laid back and gentle a setting as the others in the series – this is nonetheless a thrilling tale, chock full of action: there’s more than a couple of guns, sorry, rifles going off, an outsized pickup with murderous thoughts and the usual cast of no good characters that mix in with the easygoing locals.
