If you’re in the mood for a gripping mystery/ suspense book, then Richard Houston’s debut novel, “A View to Die For”, is the right choice for you. The author proves his talent by offering the readers an engaging plot, likeable characters and an intricate puzzle that will keep them on edge, because nothing is what it seems and discovering the real criminal is not an easy task.
Jacob Martin is an unemployed software engineer who lives with Fred, his beloved Golden Retriever, and dreams of becoming a novelist. When his mother calls to tell him that his sister, Megan, has been arrested for killing her fourth husband, Jake knows that he needs to take Fred and go to his sister’s rescue. For the local DA and sheriff everything is clear because Megan is known for collecting her husbands’ life insurance policies and the last one is worth a million dollars. Their mother insists Mike committed suicide, but this supposition might be very far from the truth. Jake is determined to take matters into his own hands and find the criminal before his family has even more to suffer. From illegal entry to computer hacking and surveillance camera sabotage, Jake is willing to do anything to prove Megan’s innocence.
“A View to Die For” is that kind of mystery novel that puts ordinary people in extraordinary situations, which makes you truly relate to the characters. My favorite was Jacob Martin, and not only because he is a dog person. Jake is witty, generous, loyal, he loves his family and is smarter than any detective. You can count on him to solve this case and clear his sister’s reputation. He makes a great team with Fred and is always concerned about the dog’s well-being, which is incredibly sweet. There’s no doubt you’ll love Jake from the very first pages.
Richard Houston knows how to build up suspense, so you will find this book impossible to put down. The good thing is that you’ll forget about everything for a couple of hours. The bad thing is that you’ll have to be patient until the author publishes the next novel in the Jacob Martin series. When you enjoy the first book so much, this never happens fast enough.
