Title: Solving Cadence Moore
Author: Gregory Sterner
About the book: It’s a standalone novel revolving around a cold case. Ten years ago, a young singer in Cadence Moore disappeared, and no one has been able to prove exactly what happened to her. Charlie Marx is the host of a podcast that tries to solve the mystery, but initially he lies about knowing the truth.
I received a free copy of the novel from Book Publicity Services in exchange for an honest review.
First impressions: I love a good mystery as much as the next person. I was expecting shorter chapters and sentences, but the author goes into a lot of detail, describing scenes thoroughly.
Characters: The characters are different and dynamic. Many of them face their share of challenges or obstacles. No one’s perfect, everybody has flaws.
“I’m just trying to make you understand the biggest reason why your short-term goal may not be worth the long-term consequences.”
Writing: The story of Cadence Moore gets told in podcast transcripts, which was interesting. Also, the language is very mature.
Final thoughts: I’m glad the ending answers lingering questions and gives readers closure.
Solving Cadence Moore combines mystery and podcasts to create a crime podcast in book form.
