The Monet Murders (2017) Josh Lanyon

The Monet MurdersJason West and Sam Kennedy have been calling each other semi-regularly, but haven’t met up since the end of their last case, where Sam said he wanted to try things with Jason.

When Jason is (unexpectedly) called out to a murder scene, Sam is there and pretty much tells Jason things are off between them. But, they still have to work together, no matter how difficult it all feels for Jason. Which is, you know, why lots of law enforcement agencies (and other businesses) have a no-fraternization policy.

(T)hough the Bureau did not have an official non-frat policy, discretion was part of the job description.

I really enjoy how Jason looks at the world–even murder scenes.

The deceased was about forty. Caucasian. A large man. Not fat, but soft. Doughy. His hair was blond and chin length, his eyes blue and glazing over. His mouth was slack with surprise. The combination of dramatic lighting and that particular expression was reminiscent of some of Goya’s works. People in Goya’s paintings so often wore that same look of shock as horrific events overtook them.

I do like the mystery in this story, and as much as I wanted to stomp on Sam’s toes, I did get why he had such trouble with relationships. I didn’t like it, and I don’t know if I would trust him with my heart, but I do get that.

So, I very much enjoyed this story and am having a hard time resisting and buying the next book immediately.
