NO WAY TO DIE by |M. D. Grayson

No way to dieA nice P.I. murder mystery, with Danny Logan the P.I. and Toni his partner.  They are asked to investigate of case of apparent suicide by the widow, who doesn’t believe her husband would kill himself.

He is found in his car at a park, having shot himself in the head.  The gun is there, the forensics all scream suicide, but as they used to say in NCIS, things seemed definitely hinky.

The plot all revolves around encryption software, a subject that makes my eyes glaze over, but has to do with a double key encryption system and a new product which would blow the currently used system right out of the water, and of course some bad guys want it by hook or by crook, so of course we now know that the suicide has got to be a set up and there will be kidnappings, and other heinous acts on their part and blood and hospital stays and explosions and the good guys winning in the end.

I am such a sucker for mysteries.  This is more of a thriller than a police procedural, and even though the bad-guys-trying-to-obtain-the-Holy Grail-and-take-over-the-world trope is pretty overdone, (and if you don’t think that is so, try watching a few kiddie cartoons some day), but so what, it was a good story and there is a love interest, and that suggestion that if only WE had the brain power of someone with 185 IQ then, we, too, could become wealthy beyond our wildest hopes.

As it is, I am stuck reading about it, my IQ being only about room temperature.
