Reviewed by Keith Mbuya for Readers' Favorite

William Jardine Parker, a psychotic killer, had given Detective Sergeant Frank Savic of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the judicial service quite a headache, committing a homicide every time he was let out behind bars, yet leaving the police with little evidence against him to give him a worthy sentence. Frank Savic had planned to retire immediately after being done with the Parker case. Coincidentally, another homicide case involving the murder of Carlo Cavilleri emerges just after Parker had finally been served “appropriate” justice. Captain Monaghan, Frank Savic’s boss, manages to get Savic to agree to extend his service before retirement and investigate Cavilleri’s murder. Jasper Colt, on the other hand, had decided to meet with one of his clients after offering her his services. Is Colt linked to the murder cases under police investigation? You should read Ashes in Venice by Gojan Nikolich to know more.

Are you looking for a mystery thriller with a super intriguing plot? Or maybe a crime thriller that is ingeniously character-driven and has a unique, exciting, and amazing story? Ashes in Venice by Gojan Nikolich is exactly what you are looking for. This is an absolutely great piece of work. I savored every moment I spent reading the book and would not mind reading it again. Nikolich is clearly a tremendously talented writer. The characters in the story are vivid and well developed. The effort Nikolich puts into making his characters real is laudable and I just loved it. I loved Detective Frank Savic; he is a free spirit. This was heavily emphasized by his classy taste in almost everything. Savic was also intelligent and very caring. The author made his action scenes very dramatic and in a pleasantly entertaining way. This coupled with his rich sense of humor made the book an epic read. I laughed a lot while reading. His choice of vocabulary made me familiar with the many themes he addresses in the book, among them being murder, cybercrime, justice, medical affairs, and more. The story is told by switching between scenes with different characters and occasional flashbacks. The story has a perfect flow and is very comprehensible. I loved this book.
