    This book is the first in the Henry Wright series by this author The Kindle format is free.First, the good I downloaded this book because I have a friend in Palm Springs PS I enjoy spending time with her and I like PS, so I was interested in a mystery series set in Palm Springs It s always fun to read a book or watch a TV show that takes place in a familiar setting My interest doubled when this was about a real estate agent, because my friend has lived in Palm Springs for over 30 years This book is the first in the Henry Wright series by this author The Kindle format is free.First, the good I downloaded this book because I have a friend in Palm Springs PS I enjoy spending time with her and I like PS, so I was interested in a mystery series set in Palm Springs It s always fun to read a book or watch a TV show that takes place in a familiar setting My interest doubled when this was about a real estate agent, because my friend has lived in Palm Springs for over 30 years and I keep telling her she should have become a real estate agent I think she can best any real estate agent in PS, real or imagined, when it comes to mid century homes and local architecture If not for her, half the real estate references in this book would ve gone over my head If you ve been to Palm Springs, you ll really enjoy the familiarity of this book s setting and the lifestyle that typifies Palm Springs.This is an enjoyable read, especially for a free book The subsequent books in the series are only 0.99 and this one was good enough that I d consider getting them I liked the characters and the story, although I could see the end coming from a mile away.Now, for the bad This author really really needs a good editor This story and I m guessing the subsequent stories by this author would go from being an enjoyable read for a free book to a great read for a free book and to a really good read for a 0.99 or even 2.99 book if it was professionally edited It suffers greatly from spelling and grammar errors The run on sentences and punctuation require the reader to read and then re read sometimes a couple of times before finally understanding what the author is trying to convey A good editor would also punch it up a couple of notches the author s writing style reflects his origins as a technical writer Even so, it s still better than 95% of the self published books I ve read.If you can overlook the bad, I do recommend this book

    This book was ok purely because it was a free kindle download Having said that, I m no English teacher but the grammar was very poor I also felt that the ending was a little rushed although I knew who d done it before I was half way through the book To conclude, it was ok for a freebie

    Overall score 2.75Disclosure I added half a star back on when I discovered that the author is not a native English speaker This would certainly explain some of the awkward construction and grammar gaffes, so I was inclined to be forgiving All the same, this book would have been far better if professionally edited Lots of run on sentences, awkward phrasing and so on could have been corrected.This could have been a really outstanding murder mystery Our protagonist, Henry, is a retired police Overall score 2.75Disclosure I added half a star back on when I discovered that the author is not a native English speaker This would certainly explain some of the awkward construction and grammar gaffes, so I was inclined to be forgiving All the same, this book would have been far better if professionally edited Lots of run on sentences, awkward phrasing and so on could have been corrected.This could have been a really outstanding murder mystery Our protagonist, Henry, is a retired police officer from Wisconsin He s moved to Palm Springs for the improved weather one presumes He s been widowed for a while, as we learn over the course of the tale.The book does start off with a literal bang a somewhat shady Palm Springs realtor is bumped off in one of the properties he s trying to sell The local sheriff asks Henry s help in investigating the matter, as Henry is apparently a freelance profiler for the FBI Never mind that Henry doesn t seem to know things that a profiler would e.g., the difference between a pedophile and an ephebephile , and that he seems to do an awful lot of blabbing about this investigation to people who are not involved Never mind that the local sheriff talks about destroying evidence in an ongoing case It s been cataloged and is on its way for destruction is a direct quote and other improbabilities Throw in that it was unfortunately easy to figure out whodunnit and you ll get my overall disappointment I will hand it to Mr Simon he definitely knows his Coachella Valley geography, although he falls a little flat in terms of other places like Palo Alto and Los Altos there s not much there came as a surprise to me, having been to Los Altos on many occasions.So, yes there was a great framework here that could have resulted in an outstanding tale It just fell very flat for me

    I got the impression that this was part of a series, but not sure where it is in that series The main character, Henry, is a retired police chief from Eagle River, WI He is now living in Palm Springs and helps out the police when they seem to be at a dead end Henry also does some profiling for the FBI I felt a connection to this story because I am from Wisconsin, and enjoyed reading a book where the main character is from there.Henry is called in to do some investigating when a prominent rea I got the impression that this was part of a series, but not sure where it is in that series The main character, Henry, is a retired police chief from Eagle River, WI He is now living in Palm Springs and helps out the police when they seem to be at a dead end Henry also does some profiling for the FBI I felt a connection to this story because I am from Wisconsin, and enjoyed reading a book where the main character is from there.Henry is called in to do some investigating when a prominent realtor is found dead in a property that he was planning on showing Rex is found dead and the clues lead the police nowhere Rex was not a very scrupulous person, he didn t mind embellishing the truth about who owned a property And most of his clients didn t mind the embellishment as long as they were able to get the home they wanted Henry seems to reaching a dead end, although he doesn t mind because he met a nice women he is becoming interested in.I figured out who the killer was in the one, it wasn t blatantly obvious, but I did have an inkling early on in the story I felt the plot line about the potential romance was far fetched because Henry didn t seem to be the type that would go that quickly He seemed a bitold fashioned to me.There are other stories by this author, but they don t appear to be available in my area This one I got for free Although I liked the story, I wasn t super impressed

    There are a few errors with the writing in terms of grammar and composition I don t normally notice such things but some of them just seem to stand out for me There was one part where the things Henry and Tim said seemed to be mixed up Certain phrases are used repeatedly.For the story, it feels a bit far fetch as everybody is so willing to tell Henry everything and except for one person, everybody tells the truth It feels like the whole story is made up of conversations between Henry and oth There are a few errors with the writing in terms of grammar and composition I don t normally notice such things but some of them just seem to stand out for me There was one part where the things Henry and Tim said seemed to be mixed up Certain phrases are used repeatedly.For the story, it feels a bit far fetch as everybody is so willing to tell Henry everything and except for one person, everybody tells the truth It feels like the whole story is made up of conversations between Henry and other people There are several mentions of Henry being good at profiling people but I don t see any profiling being done on either the victim or the suspects
