Ye Gods! A Tale of Dogs and Demons by Lynne M Hinkey is a supernatural tale of murder and mystery. The chupacabra – myth or reality? Jack Hillman is a semi-successful author, setting off on a sailing trip to Puerto Rico with his dog and first mate. Looking for a way to get around the dreaded writer's block, all he finds is a dead body. The mayor’s prized fighting cocks are attacked and, with other livestock and dogs dropping all around, he blames it squarely on the chupacabra. No two people on the island can come to any agreement as to what the chupacabra is though; is it an alien? A vampire? Is it really a beast of legend? Hillman joins forces with the mayor and, together with his dog, a teenager who practices voodoo, and the village “witch” to find out what the chupacabra is and if this is really what is haunting the island, taking livestock and leaving death and destruction in its path. Nothing is clear though; this is an island of superstition and the lines between myth and reality are very blurred indeed.
Ye Gods! A Tale of Dogs and Demons by Lynne M Hinkey is a great read. You might think you have nothing more than a murder mystery to solve, but it is so much more than that. There is plenty of murder and mystery in this story, and lots of mayhem to go with it. This is a fast-paced story, constantly moving forward but with plenty of details that flesh out the characters, building up their backgrounds and wrapping them into a tightly woven tale that is entertaining all the way through. It did take me a few pages to get into it, but once I was in, I was there to the very end, a very surprising end, I might add. If you love humor, murder, mystery, and the supernatural all rolled into one, this is the book for you.
