Green Kills (Mystery & Murder #1) by Avi Domoshevizki

Green Kills

We start out the book witnessing a “job interview” of sorts. Only the firm has decided that they want Ronnie as an employee and are willing to do almost anything to obtain him. He decides to accept their employment and the stipulations to it. Flash forward six months into the future. Ronnie works in an office with Roy and it’s pretty safe to say neither likes the other. Ronnie invites Roy out to lunch on a daily basis but Roy is always declining because of one reason or another.

Ronnie is Israeli. Every day he calls his best friend and they talk about what’s going on. Gadi, along with Ronnie’s family, wants him to come back to Israel. He’s miserable in the US and in this job. He’s bored with it. Until one afternoon when he goes to lunch. He chooses his normal table and after he is served his food, he hears someone talking about betting on horses. Only he recognizes the voice. Stepping out of the phone booth, next to Ronnie’s table, is Henry, one of the partners at the fund he is working for.

This is a book that will keep you interested until the end.  There’s mystery, suspense, love. This book was read in a couple of sittings. I just couldn’t stop unless it was to take care of my daughter or to run errands. Ronnie is a character that I liked from the beginning. He holds his ground when it comes to selling the fund. Everyone is pushing him for some reason but he won’t sell it until he finds out those reasons. Which leads him on a quest to find out. But could also mean the end of his existence. Definitely a book I would read again multiple times.

—————————-

Tom Booker is an attorney. He’s running late one day to pick up his daughter and her friends to take them to a museum. He gets caught in the elevator by one of the senior partners who isn’t happy about him skipping out for a while on a Saturday, even though he says he’ll be back. He peels out of his parking spot and races to pick up his daughter and her friends, even though he knows he’s going to be late.

Deciding to do something stupid, he starts a text message while driving across a bridge. He ends up causing an accident and hits a van head on. In the van is his daughter and her friends. The van tips up and looks like it’s going to flip into the river below but everything pauses. Another truck is on fire but the flames and smoke are still. As Tom is trying to break into the van to get at least his daughter out and stop the van from flipping, two people run up to him.

They make a deal with him but he ends up thinking he’s crazy and imagined the deal. The scene is reset and the people in the van don’t die….at that moment. Two weeks later, the driver is brutally murdered. This throws him into action knowing that his daughter and her friends are next. This makes him come to terms of things he never thought he would have to resort too in his life.

I really enjoyed this book. I read it over a few days when I was able too. This is a unique book. I’ve read books before where similar deals were made but never where the person’s family was in jeopardy of dying. This pushes the main character to think faster and react much swifter than in the other books once he realizes it’s not an idle threat. This book is easily read and flows easily from one event into the next. Definitely a crime novel worth reading.
