Detective Bill Sylvestor is not brilliant but he is persistent... even after he's been told to leave a case alone he just can't do it. Once he wins the lottery he decides to quite his job and pursue the case on his own. 

I just didn't care for this one. There really wasn't much in the way of mystery or suspense. The writing style features a lot of short, choppy sentences that seem to start midway through a thought and end abruptly. It made it hard to get into the story. I struggled to finish.

***I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Nope, not happening. I like whodinut mysteries and this wasn't one, so that drew me out right at the start. The rest of the story, apart from the revelation because that had been done at the opening itself, revolves around the detective and how he connects dots. Nah, not interested because the writing was so slow and repetitive, it was legit tiresome to read.

Not mycuppa.  I kept reading, however.  We knew from the beginning who the criminal was, but the book was devoted to the Rich Detective’s efforts to trap the culprit.  I found it too repetitious and slow, and while it was supposed to be amusing and clever, IMO it missed.
