Crime Delayed: A Buck Taylor Novel by Chuck Morgan is a compelling crime novel set in Aspen, Colorado; a tale of murder and a gritty investigation, filled with twists and surprises that set the reader’s heart racing. It all starts with a wildlife ranger who disappears in the mountains on the southern part of Aspen, Colorado. Now, Senior Agent Buck Taylor from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation takes on the case. What Agent Taylor and his team discover will be far worse than anything anyone could have expected. Now, he has to solve not only a murder case, but serial murders and kidnappings that have plagued Aspen for years. What makes the case even more complicated is that the kidnappers and killers will do everything to stop them, and the lives of many innocent people could be on the line.
This crime novel reads like a great thriller. The writing is atmospheric, laced with vivid descriptions that capture the setting in great detail while allowing readers to follow the intensity of the action and the emotional and psychological depth of the story. Agent Buck Taylor is a character that readers will love. I enjoyed the fact that he isn’t a superhero and that his humanity comes out neatly through the narrative. A man who suffers a serious emotional wound caused by the death of the woman he’s loved all his life, he must deal with several issues at the same time. The supporting cast of characters is equally memorable and readers are compelled to follow them as they evolve through the story. Chuck Morgan is a master at storytelling and the simplicity and precision of the prose keep readers focused from the very beginning to the last page. Crime Delayed: A Buck Taylor Novel is a mesmerizing, on the-edge-of-your-seat read for fans of sleuth and crime fiction.
