Read full description of the books Death Vows:A little background: this review and my rating of this book are most probably influenced by one or more or all of the following…
1) I’ve been reading and enjoying Donald Strachey mysteries since I was a teen (my Dad bought me “On The Other Hand Death” at my college bookstore—no, he didn’t know it was a gay mystery despite the pink triangle on the cover).
2) I recently finished “Tongue Tied” #8 in the series & was sadly certain that despite the successful-enough series of films on here! TV “Tongue Tied” would be the last of the Strachey stories.
3) The pub date on Barnes & Noble says September 28th & I LOVE to read a book before pub date (which is a big reason I love to review books for Kirkus et al. and go to library conferences to get the Advanced Reader Copies).
4) The bad guys really get it good in the end & though orchestrated by Donald, they get it at the hand of other bad guys—and one set is a thinly disguised real world bad guy. (I read once that boys like books where the bad guys get it & I am most definitely a boy in that respect).
I think this is the best of the series. I have enjoyed them all, and think I might re-read a couple of them since I liked this so much. The mystery was twisty and totally believable. Don and Timmy were happily themselves. I’m just sad it’s over. (So write more RS (or RL)!)
I’m a little confused by the new publisher—why in the heck would St. Martin’s NOT want to publish this with two of the novels in the series in production (to join two others already on DVD)…but maybe it was Stevenson (Lipez)’s choice. I hope he has plans for more with MLR Press. I’ll let you solve the mystery of MLR Press…it made me chuckle. Go buy this. And if you haven’t bought the others—you’re in luck MLR is putting them back out too!
