Review: The Alligator Man by James Sheehan

The Alligator Man by James Sheehan

Format: eARC 
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Kevin Wylie's crooked boss wants to run him out of town, and Kevin's long-time girlfriend is ready to take a hike. He decides that now is the time to leave Miami, visit his father, who he hasn't seen in 28 years, and get some answers. Heading back to his hometown, he doesn't realize that he and his dad will become embroiled in a murder case. 

The victim, one of the richest and most-hated corporate criminals in America has been dubbed The Alligator Man since pieces of his clothing were found in a local swamp. Billy Fuller had every reason in the world to want Johnson dead and all the evidence leads right to his doorstep. But legendary trial lawyer Tom Wylie believes in Billy and he and his son reunite to fight the courtroom battle for Billy's life.

Kritters Thoughts:  A well known businessman is murdered, but there is more than one person who would want him dead, so who did it?  Told in short chapters from many points of view, this book had me caught up in the story from page one til the very end.  There was family drama, business drama and just drama drama!  

My first read by James Sheehan and the way this book unfolded was perfect.  The way each piece of the puzzle was provided through each of the character's stories made for a great who dun it.  This story was building and building and there was no way to put it down!

I would absolutely recommend this book to fans of the who dun it genre, but like to stay away from the gore.  This one was very big on the case behind the killing, but low on the gore.  I am a new fan of James Sheehan. 

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
