Review: Angel's Requiem

Angel's Requiem
Angel's Requiem by Kate Kindle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Please note: I originally read this two years ago (August, 2011); I'm just standardizing the reviews that need a disclosure as I run across them.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review. After I posted the following review, she tried to bribe me to take it down. Be honest with this author at your own peril.

My Thoughts: Angel’s Requiem is an enjoyable thriller and suspenseful mystery with a message about belief, faith and doing what is right in the end. It revolves around a fairly large cast of characters, but they are all fleshed out nicely and it is easy to keep track of them. There is Rico Nasi, whose murder kicks off the book; Aiden, a former NYPD cop who now works as an insurance investigator, who comes across the crime scene and involves himself in the investigation; Liddy, who had been hired by Vincent and Angela Nasi – Rico’s father and grandmother – to accompany Rico as an escort and to “keep him out of trouble”; and Dave, a forensics medical intern who comes to New York from Pittsburgh to aid in the investigation of Rico’s death.

My Thoughts: The beginning of the book is instantly appealing and I was pulled right into the story. The action ranges from New York to London, Rome, Venice and even Glasgow before the end of the book. I was initially going to give this book only 4 stars, because there are some major plot inconsistencies that were apparently missed by Ms. Kindle’s editors – however, I liked the book so much that I gave it the full 5 stars, despite the problems. Edit: Despite my problems with this author, I have not changed my rating because the book was enjoyable and that's how I rate. I hope that the author will have the chance to correct the problems and issue a new edition, which I will happily download as well, because I think the idea and execution of the story itself was really good. I also will be watching for her next book or books as the case will be. Edit: However, due to her rudeness toward me when I first posted this review, I am no longer interested in reading any other books she may put out.

Fans of mystery, suspense and thrillers should all find this enjoyable.

  1. what an entitled so-and-so! IT'S A FIVE STAR. STOP YOUR WHINING.

    1. Also, apparently because I pointed out in a private e-mail to her that "magnet" should have been "magnate" and that "fruckus" was probably supposed to be either "ruckus" or "fracas"... I am a miserably bad speller.

      ??? *shrug*
