While police procedurals and mysterious thrillers flood the fiction marketplace, Carmen Cady has been able to find a unique angle in this series debut. Jack Calloway is not only a private investigator and criminal profiler, but has a past that sets him apart from many. Few are aware of his great secret, something Calloway hopes will not change in the near future. When a serial killer stalks Seattle, Calloway is brought in to assist with the investigation, only to discover something sinister that floors him. A chilling start to what could be a great series. Recommended to those who enjoy unique takes on the crime thriller. Jack Calloway has had a great deal of success as a freelance private investigator and criminal profiler, so much so that his name is bandied around many police organizations. His impetus comes from the fact that his family was murdered by a sadistic killer years ago, forcing him to hone his skills to find justice for all. When he is called to assist on a spree of killings in Seattle, Calloway returns to a city that holds many recent memories. Working alongside a forensic tech with whom he has a romantic history is daunting enough, but having to report to a detective who has no love loss for him makes things all the more difficult. On the surface, the case appears somewhat cut a dry; young women have turned up murdered in Seattle. It would seem there are similarities in their age and the fact they all used a dating app, something that does not leap off the page for anyone. However, Calloway discovers some peculiar clues at the scenes, things that do not add up. Stymied, but not yet ready tho give up, Calloway follows his instincts and tries to make sense of it all. While he’s trying to come to terms with his colleagues and they past they share, Calloway wrestles with another secret, something far darker and much more troubling. He has a long history—literally—and soon realises that the killer may have been targeting him for more than a few months, baiting him to get involved in the action. It’s soon apparent that Calloway could be a suspect in the killings, based on his connections to them, albeit in a vague manner. He must use this unique approach to his advantage in order to make sense of the victims, the killer, and the direction in which the crime spree will turn, all while trying to clear his name and hold onto the secret that could ruin it all. Working the crimes without revealing too much about himself, Calloway tries to piece it all together and bring the killer to justice. However, there are delicate aspects that must be handled and clues that cannot be revealed to the general public, for fear that Calloway’s personal life comes to the surface. That would destroy everything, from his credibility through to his lifestyle. There is a killer on the loose, someone who has lured Calloway into this trap and must be stopped, after centuries of evil doing! Carmen Cady does well to intrigue the reader with the premise of this story, without making things too supernatural. I choose not to reveal too much, permitting the reader to delve deep and see what they think. While the premise—killer must be caught by the protagonist—is traditional in nature, there are aspects to the story that make it a unique and curious read. Cady may be on to something here, if she can keep the momentum. Jack Calloway is a great protagonist, revealing much about himself throughout the story. While he is a top-notch private investigator, there are personal aspects to him that come to the surface throughout this piece. Both his personal and professional lives come under scrutiny in the novel, with the reader receiving a front row seat to all the action. His secret remains his own, though Calloway will have to face many a demon throughout the story to make sense of what is before him, which only thickens the plot. Cady offers up a wonderful cross-section of characters in the piece, each working in their own way to advance the plot. There are many subplots that develop, allowing Cady to hone her characters effectively and flavouring the narrative throughout. Calloway’s past and present are on full display here, with many complementing his character in their own manner. The story, while not entirely unique in its approach, is great as the layers are peeled back. Cady knows how to build up some tension between her characters and uses plot to advance the story. The narrative, working in a number of time periods and through the eyes of numerous characters, proves strong and does not lose the momentum throughout. A mix of chapter lengths proves the perfect tease for the reader, goading them to keep going in order to piece the mystery together. There are many aspects to the story, appealing to a large audience, though their underlying truth about Jack Calloway drives the story along, forcing the reader to wonder just how long his secret will remain his own, and how that could turn the series on its head. Kudos, Madam Cady, for an intriguing series debut. I will have to keep my eyes open for more of your work in the coming years. Jack Calloway certainly has me curious, as does his backstory!

Jack was compelled initially to become a PI to try and track down the monster who destroyed his family. The narrative becomes a story of cat-and-mouse when evidence builds against Jack, making himself a suspect in the triple M murder case. To uncover who is truly behind the murders Jack must work with his ex-lover (who he still cares for deeply). This is a suspenseful supernatural, thriller/romance and I enjoyed my time reading it. The world-building and incorporation of the supernatural elements were done seamlessly and I liked the twists that they lead to throughout. There are some steamy scenes in this book that were not over-the-top; I could constantly feel the sexual tension between Jack and Carla and their romance felt very authentic. The majority of the story is written in the 1st person (from Jack’s POV) but you do get other character’s POVs as well; I did find it a bit jarring that these were written in the 3rd person (except for one other character). The Author’s writing style is quite descriptive and had a nice flow. I found the pacing to be slower than I would have liked, particularly towards the climax due to the inclusion of descriptions and (small) info dumps – an example is during a time where I felt very tense, the tension was lost because almost a whole page was dedicated to providing a family history of one of the characters which I felt didn’t add anything extra to the story. I also was not a huge fan of the way the women in the story were portrayed as they were often described initially by the physical appearance of their breasts, legs etc. and I think we need to move past this in 2021. Furthermore, the way that the male characters ‘think’ about women as being helpless and are patronising towards them was off-putting and did make me disconnect from the story at times. Overall, I would have liked this book to have shown the supernatural ‘beings’ in their more traditional horrifying, scary way, but I highly recommend Triple M Murder to anyone who likes supernatural romance books or wants a great crime novel with a supernatural twist.

    Triple M Murder is an intriguing twist on the murder mystery genre by Carmen Cady. Jack Calloway is a consultant profiler who occasionally helps police departments along the US West Coast. In this instance, the Seattle police chief has called him in to help investigate a potential serial killer. The twist? Jack Calloway has been a vampire for over 150 years. It's not immediately obvious at the start of the story, but little snippets are dropped out as Jack gives us his view of the world. Things l Triple M Murder is an intriguing twist on the murder mystery genre by Carmen Cady. Jack Calloway is a consultant profiler who occasionally helps police departments along the US West Coast. In this instance, the Seattle police chief has called him in to help investigate a potential serial killer. The twist? Jack Calloway has been a vampire for over 150 years. It's not immediately obvious at the start of the story, but little snippets are dropped out as Jack gives us his view of the world. Things like heightened senses, incredible strength and women's attraction to him are all given to us. "My senses take it all in. I can capture smells imperceptible to others and notice details that aren't obvious." Jack has a history with the Seattle PD, especially Ed Halsted Lead detective and Carla Briggs forensic investigator who's also Ed's ex-wife. You know that there's no love lost between the two men and that Jack and Carla were once an item. So onto the murders, three so far. The victims, all women have had their feet and wrists bound. There are unexplainable puncture wounds to the neck and wrists which are older than the marks left by the bindings. It looks as though there were two different types of torture taking place over several weeks. Are there two torturers? As we move further into the story, we learn that in this world there are two types of law enforcement: Those of a human, and those of a supernatural nature. The vampires are ruled by the Dracul who have fought to coexist peacefully with humans. There are also werewolves in the background. Jack sits somewhere just outside of both worlds, never fully aligned to either. As I said earlier, it's a really intriguing concept with some great original ideas. For me though, I struggled to connect with Jack, the main character. Maybe it was his casual use of women within the story or the sense of arrogance about him, I wasn't sure. Although this is not just a reflection of him, it seemed a trait among the whole vampire community, which may be what the author intended. Ed Halstead also appeared big and brash at the beginning, but towards the end, my impression of him changed dramatically. Characterisation apart, Triple M Murder moved at a pretty quick pace with plenty of suspense thrown in. The supernatural aspect of the plot increased the sense of intrigue and added a welcome twist to your average serial killer plot. I enjoyed the history behind the Dracul's and the concept of opposing vampire factions. I think there's plenty more here to build on for future stories. Recommended...

Jack Calloway is a criminal profiler and private investigator. He is dark, intense and has special qualities that make him a good investigator who is frequently called on by police to help solve crimes. Years ago Jack witnesses his entire family being brutally murdered by a ruthless killer, and he has since spent his life trying to find the person responsible. Since that night he has been harboring a monstrous secret, one that few know about. The Monster who viciously killed his wife, child and parents was a vampire that turned Jack into one as well. Jack is called out to a crime scene by police because there is a serial killer on the loose and they need his profiling abilities to help solve the crime. As more bodies are found and clues are collected they all seem to point to Jack. Someone or something is trying to frame him for the murders. Jack must solve the crime to clear his name but also to protect those he cares most about because nobody is safe and someone is out for revenge. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the blend of police procedural and the supernatural elements that worked so well together. The characters were well developed and interesting and I really look forward to future books in the series to continue reading about Jack and his crime solving with the help of both the humans and supernatural beings in his life. I am very intrigued about the many interesting characters that we were introduced to and how all their stories will develop. This was a wonderful paranormal thriller with bite.

    Review featured at www.books-n-kisses.com This book was just odd for me. It’s not that I didn’t like it but I wouldn’t say I loved it. The story is interesting.

I thought it was right to how people would feel who once had a connection but now have to work together. Now the other part. First I hated, HATED, the way the women are portrayed in this story. I mean seriously the sexism in the story was distracting. If it had been set a different time it would have made more sense but it is not and women are not sex objects. There were times it felt the author was saying 15 words for 3 to fill in pages. A number of things/people were overly explained for no reason. I will read the next in the series to see if the first was overly written to explain the new characters but I am not sure how much of a fan I will be.

    A really strong thriller with a dash of supernatural to make it a bit different to many thrillers on the market. The back story is heartbreaking and really makes the characters and their relationships something to invest in. Highly recommended for people who like their thrillers a little bit brutal and dark.

    This was the best book I have read all year. The story kept you guessing. This is not my usual genre, but I am so glad I won this book. I otherwise may not have read it. The perfect amount of twists and turns. The characters were very likeable even with the back story.

    I couldn't get past the first few pages. This one just didn't grab my interest. The sentences felt choppy and I just couldn't get into the flow of the story.
