Book Review: Beer Money by Dan Ames

Love to read mysteries and thrillers? For the longest time, thrillers and crime novels were the only books I read. Although I had never read anything from author Dan Ames--the description of Beer Money caught my interest. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to carve out a little time to read a mystery.

 About the Book  
When a history professor at Marquette University is murdered, Private Investigator Burr Ashland takes on the case. Burr's investigation plunges him into a violent struggle not just between the present and the past, but between good and evil.

It turns out that the dead professor had uncovered some very valuable information about one of the city's wealthiest families, and someone will do anything to keep the truth buried forever.

My Review 

Beer Money is a fast paced, easy read. I am not a fan of lengthy descriptions or drawn out character development. In fact--I honestly do not have the attention span for such books. Dani Amore jumps into the plot within the first few pages and keeps the story moving in short, well written glimpses as Burr Ashland investigates the case. While I may have liked a little more insight into some of the characters, I am not sure that I really missed anything by having less detail. Beer Money is fast paced and action packed with lots of surprises and unexpected revelations.

Would I recommend Beer Money by Dan Ames? I enjoyed the book--and am looking forward to more Burr Ashland mysteries. If you enjoy thrillers and are not put off by glimpses into “shadier” aspects of life, then give Beer Money a quick read.
