There is beauty in words when used more than the need to impress upon its readers and not everyone is given the knack for that. Jack McCormac expounds on this gift in the seventh addition to the Sketching Detective mystery series.
In his Fetching Fiona and the Sketching Detective Solve the Crisscross Murders, the author uses the power of words as he exploits the theme of mystery and tops it with bits of humorous exchanges. The lead characters of Jack and Fiona MacKay provide colourful personalities amidst the generally red murder investigations.
The MacKay detectives go through every person, place and thing in vivid detail, managing all of them to lead the way to the truth behind the murders of two men in the town of Bonnie Glen. The way they analyse and interpret the facts in the picture provide for a realistic approach in investigations and allow for readers to develop them by themselves.
Every chapter introduces a new adventure for the couple and describes it by the active use of powerful and expressive words, making it perfect for laid-back reading.
