Political Dirty Trick: A Crystal Moore Suspense (Volume 3) by James R Callan @jamesrcallan



I thoroughly enjoyed this book! So much so I went back and bought book 1 and 2 of The Crystal Moore Series. The characters were written really well. Eula, was a southern woman with a rifle! Hilarious even though it was serious. Crystal has my heart. She is a well rounded Public Relation rep with a fantastic way of coming through as lovable.


Ron Drake our election hero is running for Governor of Texas just because he wants it to be great. The other characters I cant speak of now due to spoilers, so suffice it to say Ginnie was ruthless. She was evil, just plain evil, yet I did like her. I felt that she was put together with half good/bad and so impressionable.

If you like clean, mystery novels with a twist, then YES buy it now. Obviously I didnt read them in order, but for this one there is no need to. I also loved the way the author keeps it as a series, but standalone too. There is not a lot of repeating things for the characters to keep you up to date EITHER.
