Seniors Sleuth (Winston Wong Cozy Mystery Book 1) by J.J. Chow is an eccentric, unpredictable mystery story with delightful characters and a plot that will keep you reading. Winston Wong has given up his career as a video game tester and decided to become a sleuth like Encyclopedia Brown, his boyhood hero. His first case is to determine if ninety-year-old Joe Sawyer died a natural death or was murdered while living at the Sweet Breeze senior home. Winston soon finds a romantic interest and confidante in Nurse Kristy in his quest to find the truth. The residents of Sweet Breeze are a strange assortment of men and women whom Winston comes to think of as his friends. Anastasia who liked pretending she was a princess, Jazzman who entertained on the piano, and Pete, a disgruntled veteran are among some of the folks we meet. Seniors Sleuth takes many twists and turns before the case is solved.
Seniors Sleuth is a mystery with a very different sweet, nerdy sleuth as the star with a great cast of helpers. I really enjoyed the book and it is hard not to share more of the story without giving away too much of the plot. J.J. Chow has begun a cozy mystery series with Winston Wong as the hero and I can’t wait for his next adventure to begin. I read this book in a day, neglecting my chores because it is that good a book. I found myself changing my mind several times about who the murderer was and who were the good guys, and never once did I guess the answer. I highly recommend Seniors Sleuth. J.J.Chow has written a great mystery mixing seniors, video games and quirky characters together in a perfect blend.
