Fortune Favors the Dead – Book Review
Fortune Favors the Dead is the debut novel in a series. It pays homage to classic detectives like Sherlock Holmes and Philip Marlowe, while making it feel fresh and original. It is set in 1940s New York City and is very easy to read. With humor and seriousness, the author manages to bring out the noir flavor of Holmes-Watson to the modern world.
The novel is a mystery about a love triangle and blackmail. It also includes money and a cliched operator hiding in the shadows. There are many interesting twists and turns along the way. This mystery is a great place to start a series. It’s a quick read and the author could have done more with this series.
