Murdock Rocks Sedona


Murdock Rocks Sedona (Matt Murdock – 7) by Robert J. Ray

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Wealthy investors in Sedona, Arizona, are dropping like flies—more accurately, lead weights. They are falling down staircases and off mountainsides, decks, and hiking trails. With so many similar “accidents,” the victims had to have been pushed. Other than their wealth and weakness for beautiful young women, what the falling men had in common was a financial interest in Sedona Landing, a historic hotel in Oak Creek Village. They also shared a long history with the chief investor, billionaire Axel Ackerman. Fearing that he too will plunge to his death, Ackerman hires Matt Murdock and Helene Steinbeck to investigate.

During his climb to the top of the heap, Ackerman crushed scores of rivals and broke many hearts. The culling of his “Crew” of investors is clearly personal. So who among this crowded field of enemies would orchestrate such a byzantine scheme of revenge? To keep their client safe, Matt and Helene will have to be on their best game. Too bad their last case in Taos took such a heavy toll, particularly on Helene, and caused a rift in their fragile bond.

Murdock Rocks Sedona is the seventh book in the Matt Murdock Murder Mystery series, which began with Bloody Murdock.


My Review

4 stars

Matt and Helene are in Sedona to relax from their last case. But things are tense between the two of them and know knowing how to fix it they keep doing their own things. Helene is giving some lectures and is approached to find out who is killing off investors in hotel Sedona Landing. She refuses unless Matt’s name is on the contract.

Someone is intent on taking out these rich investors that have an eye for the ladies. She has thought it through and has a specific list and some help in taking care of these guys. The questions is if she will finish her list before Matt and Helene figure out who she is.

This is my first book from author Robert J. Ray and I have to say that I’m very impressed. I got sucked into the story and couldn’t wait to see who the killer was and their motive. I also felt for Matt and Helene. There is something wrong in their relationship and it doesn’t look like either know how to go about fixing it so they just keep trudging along.

There were lots of twists and turns to this story and I will admit that I didn’t know who the killer really was until the end. If you are looking for a great mystery story I recommend getting yourself a copy of this book. Now I’m off to start this series from the first book, Bloody Murdock.
