Hell's Kitchen Homicide by Charles Kipps

Hell's Kitchen Homicide by Charles Kipps was sent to me by Simon and Schuster.

I read a lot of mysteries and I'm partial to police procedurals and have read many over the years. This one was outstanding and kept my interest throughout. The author did a terrific job of making the hero, Conor Bard a most realistic character and cop.

Conor Bard is a homicide cop with a partner who is retiring--though reluctantly. As with many of these stories about partners, though bantering between them is believable and sometimes funny while they try to figure out who the murderer of a well-known lawyer might be. Of course there are plenty of suspects as Conor and his partner investigate each one. The story begins with a bang and end with a surprise.

I enjoyed it from beginning to end and recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery.
