Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Death of a Texan is a work of fiction in the murder mystery, crime, and suspense sub-genres, and was penned by author Cat Hickey. The work is intended for the mature reading audience and contains some scenes of a sexual nature and moderate references to violence. Our protagonist is Chloe, a private investigator who yearns for more substance in her life than tailing cheating husbands. But when one such case leads her to the murder of Victor Vargas, the secrets spiral out of control and she begins to realize that she may well be next on the hit list. Battling these threats as her own personal life spins out of control, Chloe must discover the truth to set herself free.

Author Cat Hickey has crafted a fascinating and intricately plotted work of mystery fiction with plenty of sex, lies, and surprises to offer its readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was the strength and variations of characters. Though we follow Chloe as a well-narrated and very likable leading character, I found that everyone else in the novel was also realistically portrayed, with interesting details and extra development that enriched the overall mystery of the tale. The dialogue was also effective, serving to display the unique traits of the characters whilst moving the plot forward in a natural way and giving the audience time to figure things out for themselves before any big reveals. Overall, I would highly recommend Death of a Texan to fans of chilling mystery tales, engaging and varied characters, and for dramatic fiction readers everywhere.
