Very Important Corpses (An Ishmael Jones Mystery, 3)

We rated this book:


His name is Ishmael Jones. He deals with the strange and unnatural in the darkest parts of the hidden worlds. Along with his partner, Penny Belcourt, they go where the Organization sends them. His unique skills are needed on the banks of Loch Ness, where members of the Baphomet Group are being dismembered. A top-secret meeting is being held at the Coronach House. Ishmael must hunt down a monster before it kills all the clandestine participants and maybe take in the sites while he’s at it.

Very Important Corpses is the third installment in Simon R. Green’s Ishmeal Jones series. Even though this is part of a series, each book is a stand-alone case. This quick read is a cross between a cozy mystery and a supernatural haunting with beheadings and a lot of blood. Written as a dark noir, Green’s novel is not for the highbrow snob. This is more of a guilty pleasure. Green’s book is excellent for a quiet afternoon or a dark and stormy night. For fans of otherworldly mysteries, join Ishmael and Penny as they hunt down the killer of Very Important Corpses.
