Pelican Point: A Webb Sawyer Mystery by Douglas Quinn
Pelican Point brings you back to Blue Heron Marsh, the home of Webb Sawyer. If you’ve read the previous two books in the series, then you’re already quite familiar with how Webb gets into ‘sticky situations’, and if you have yet to read them, then you have to start with the first book or you’ll be completely lost. Now get ready for a lot of fishing, friends, and of course Grolsch.
Pelican Point of course has the usual list of characters from past books, but Webb’s son, Preston, plays a much more prominent role in this novel. He is a suspect in a murder case when after one night of studying, he sees Jacques Girvan, a college professor, dead in his office. Preston decides to dig into the murder, in turn he finds himself in a much more delicate situation than he, Webb, or his girlfriend, Sunshine, ever expect. I’ll say this, like father, like son… even though Preston would never admit it.
A run in with a Columbian punk, knocked on the back of the head, assassination attempts, and disturbing secrets, make Pelican Point the most explosive novel in the series. There may even be a girl for Webb… is it Nan, his on again off again bed buddy?
While Douglas Quinn focuses on Webb’s military experience more in this book than any of the others, it makes Webb seem more 3D, more real. I also liked his twist, although it may be distasteful to some, it is much more graphically explained and possibly something that really does happen in the world. Intrigued? Read Pelican Point to find out what I mean.
I do have to say, toward the middle and mostly at the end, there were grammatical/editorial errors that I caught, they were not huge errors but enough to make me re-read the sentence a few times. Other than that, another great mystery in the life of Mr. Webb Sawyer. 4.5 Hearts
