The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini - Blog Tour and Review

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Welcome to my blog for my stop on the tour for The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini. I am really thrilled to welcome you to my blog! If you're new here, please do have a click around to see what else I review mostly Young Adult fiction and crime fiction. 

The premise of the book appealed to me, so I signed up to the blog tour. Detective Luca lives in Florida with his wife Mary Ann (also a cop) and their daughter Jessica. Luca is looking at a spate of burglaries in the area when he hears that his friend's dad has died. Although elderly, he was in god health and the death was unexpected. His son mentions to Luca that another elderly man has died recently in the same facility that his dad died in, and that there was some financial arrangement that means the facility has made money out of both men dying early. Luca isn't sure if there's a case to be answered, but goes to his boss with it anyway. His boss orders an exhumation, and it turns out there is definitely a case... Luca goes to Palm Shores, the high end facility both men lived in, and starts asking questions. 

If anything, I felt like the book wasn't expanded enough. There's a lot of parts which are just speech, and it's sometimes hard to follow as to who is speaking. There needed to be some bits of self-reflection and connections too, but overall this didn't detract from the story and I quite liked the mystery. 

Here's the blurb:

Two eighty-year old victims…
…had roofies in their system.
Why would someone give the victims a date-rape drug?
Luca has heard the rumors and now there’s an official complaint. A high-end assisted-living community’s ownership has been accused of abuse. It seems like a straightforward matter to investigate, but is there something more sinister going on?
Is this about euthanasia or greed?
Luca thinks there may be a third option.
With a plate full of burglary investigations, one of which, led to the victims being pistol-whipped, Luca is swamped. Will he be able to unravel the clues and get to the truth?
His gut says there’s a connection…
…but who is behind it?
Is it only about a payday?
You’ll love this next installment in the Luca Mystery series, because of hard-nosed, relentless, detective work and his mind for unraveling the lies and deception.
Get it now.
