Book Review: The Serenity Murder

Title: The Serenity Murder (A Luca Mystery Crime Thriller #3)

Author: Dan Petrosini

Narrator: Peter Lerman



All that serenity was broken by human behavior gone off the rails. Philanthropist Marilyn Boggs, is murdered on her private island near Naples.

There’s a huge difference between fear and being afraid and the suspects in this murder feared their existence was in jeopardy.

Det. Luca instincts point to the husband whose motives are clear but inconveniently, other, credible suspects surface.

Full of betrayal, tension, and suspense, Det. Luca is back in another hard-boiled mystery.

The Serenity Murder is the third novel in the Luca Mystery series. 

You’ll love this story for its characters, grit, and mystery.

My Review

4/5 Stars

When a wealthy lady is killed, Luca and his partner are summoned to try and figure out who’s responsible. There are three prominent suspects, and to figure out the truth of the crime, the partners will have to dive deep into their web of secrets and lies.

The mystery and suspense were very well done in this story. It kept me guessing right up until the end, and I was proud that I couldn’t guess who the killer was. Finding out the truth at last left me feeling very accomplished. Luca was a very interesting character, and I found his parts to be the most engaging part of the book.

Narration was easy to listen to.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
