Not An Ordinary Death is a work of murder mystery fiction penned by author Sharon Scarborough. Filled with intrigue and deeply buried secrets that are tough to uncover, the central action centers around Ranger Oz Nightingale. When Oz discovers a body at a construction site, he has little to go on besides the feeling that something isn’t right about the way the guy died. His cousins are acquainted with the deceased, and when they agree, Oz begins an instinctual search for the truth and discovers those along the way who would rather keep it very deeply under wraps. What follows is an exciting and dangerous mystery novel filled with suspense and clue-finding.
Author Sharon Scarborough knows how to build an atmosphere of tension and suspicion very well, and it’s this powerful sensation that keeps us on Oz’s shoulder throughout the novel, even when it seems there’s very little to go on. As Oz works through his feelings about the case, so we are introduced to the sinister world of Edgar Post and his ruthless billionaire empire. The plot is well constructed to give the clues away little by little, which comes back around in a very satisfying way when we reach the novel’s conclusions later on. Character development is also very well handled in the central figures of the story. I particularly enjoyed the uncovering of Post’s murky past and how it informs his character throughout. Overall, Not An Ordinary Death delivers just what it promises: a fun and intriguing mystery for all to enjoy.
