After signing away his soul for fame, wealth, and women, an accountant for the mob goes missing, and a sexy demon hires private eye Mark Cain to find him.
As an avid mystery fan it sometimes gets harder and harder to find a storyline I’ve not read before. While Lost Soul does have some familiar themes to it, the twists Mr. Bracken added made it not only a refreshing read, but an entertaining one, too.
I hate to give away too much but lets just say it’s not your run of the mill, woman hires PI to find someone. It had a paranormal element to it, a little humor, and a great twist at the end.
The pacing was snappy, the dialogue very realistic, and I liked the setting too. I think it fit the story perfectly and tied everything together.
Lost Soul is a snappy, quick read for mystery lovers who are short on time. I’ll definitely be looking for more stories by the author.
