When Moths Burn is the second book in the James Strait Mysteries series by John Eidswick and it is an electrifying thriller packed with action and suspense. James Strait is a changed man who wants nothing but serenity in his hometown. But the peaceful life he dreams about is shattered when his home is bombed and a loved one killed. What makes things worse is that he is being framed for the crime. He is decided on hunting down the culprits and having his revenge but his plans change when a homeless child comes asking for help. Her mother is missing and her stepfather is abusive. What follows is a gritty story of investigation fraught with danger. Can Strait come out alive?
The protagonist is thrust into a dangerous world where drug lords, neo-Nazis, pedophiles, and other dangerous characters lurk and prey on the weak. It is hard to trust anyone and I enjoyed how the author cunningly gets readers to mistrust some of the characters, especially the forensic guy. The writing is superb, filled with exciting descriptions. The exploration of the emotional and psychological parts of the characters reinforces the already strong sense of realism and humanity that permeates the writing. When Moths Burn is a gripping thriller, a page-turner with an unpredictable plot and real characters. The short chapters are written in a way so that readers feel compelled to read on, curious about what could happen next. John Eidswick is a new and exciting author that will delight fans of crime novels and thrillers.
