He has an eye for clues, the ability to uncover the hidden and to look beyond the obvious. Now private detective Rick Clayton is on what appears to be a marital investigation when one wealthy woman hires him to discover who or what her husband is doing on his overnight business trips. Could he have a gambling problem? Seemed pretty cut and dried until the husband becomes the victim of murder. With all of the grit and gristle of old murder mysteries, THE STATEROOM TRYST by P. Wesley Lundberg is a fresh take on who-dunnits and while Clay is the consummate detective, he is more soft-boiled, than hard. Smart enough to know that computers and computer geniuses are his friends, Clay uses the talents of one contact to help him dig deep into the underbelly of this investigation, only to find the warts hidden to the untrained eye. If you like fast-paced plots with enough twists to confound even the most seasoned mystery lovers, P.Wesley Lundberg’s style will have you following the clues right along with Clay helping him plan his next move! Clay is a wonderfully drawn character, loyal to his small circle of friends, but truly a loner at heart, it is his brilliant mind and skills of deduction and clever repartee that brings him to full spectrum life! Once again, I owe an Indie author a huge thank you for requesting a review!
