Let Me Kill You, Sweetheart! by Fletcher Flora
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Flora’s well written and elegant prose is marred by a unusual plot device that is based on the coincidence that one of three men may have impregnated and murdered a young woman, all be intimately involved with the town rich girl, and all hang around at the same bar with the main character in the book, an oddball train nerd named Pervy Stubbs. All three of the suspects seem somewhat interchangeable, or maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention, so after the big reveal at the end I had to page back to refresh myself on the significance of the character. Well written, but flawed, it could have been a great book - 3.5 stars.
