    1. The case itself, begins as a job to find evidence to get Joan Parker's son Chris released while he awaits trial for the murder of his father and the attempted murder of his mother by fireman's axe. Moonlight completes his part of the deal but his gut is still telling him something is off and he continues to look into the matter on his own.The plot itself is slow and steady at times but it never drags. there wasn't that feeling of racing against the clock, more like we're just along for the ride [...]


    2. A Rose By Any Other NameMURDER BY MOONLIGHT’s Richard Moonlight is a dick in just about every way imaginable. He’s Dick, but everyone calls him “Moonlight,” (except his girlfriend Aviva who mostly calls him “Moonlight,” but calls him “Richard” when she really wants his attention); he’s a dick, as in “private investigator”; and he’s a self-admitted dick, as in “asshole.” While this may sound like the makings of a disaster, nothing could be further from the truth. Moonl [...]



    3. What do you get when you get a smart alec PI that has a built in lie detector. Moonlight is mouthy and almost to the point of rude most of the time but he can see the truth and calls a person out on it. Moonlight is already beating himself senseless over the death of a person he believes innocent but could not get cleared or even paroled. He carries in his head a shard of a bullet left from an aborted suicide attempt that could end his life at any given moment. After being hired by the mother of [...]


    4. AwesomeVery exciting until the very end could not put it down! Very surprising thought I had it figured out but I didn't!


    5. A good readKept ur attention from the beginningAlso kept u guessing. Great little read and must say I enjoyed it very much.


    6. SuspencefulIt kept me in suspence and interested in what really happened. I wanted to know the truth as much as he did. The truth was mind blowing.


    7. Zandri is by no means a master of the crime genre, but Murder By Moonlight is a good read with a complex plot, clearly defined characters and a few good twists along the way. His writing is sparse, while the division into short chapters – sixty-six in all, some of them no longer than a single page – ensures a fast-paced story. Overall, it's a fun read, and if crime is your favourite genre then you'll probably enjoy this. It isn't perfect. Some of the situations don't ring true and nor do all [...]


    8. True confession: I'm not much of a murder mystery fan ("Loves Music, Loves to Dance" by Mary Higgins Clark aside). I usually find the plot predictable, characters two-dimensional, and the ending not that surprising. I picked up this book last spring for book club, I just couldn't get into it - even if it was based on the real-life murder of the Porco family in Delmar, NY - very close to where I live. But at the start of the new year I decided to give it another shot and am glad I did. Now I wish [...]


    9. A page turner. Written in the first person present tense and a spare prose style. Dick Moonlight is a private eye, ex-cop, failed suicide with a bullet fragment lodged in his brain which may at any time move killing him. He is gratuitously offensive to any person he questions. He is intuitive, reaching unverifiable conclusions which are inevitably correct within minutes. But suspend disbelief and go along for the ride and enjoy it. I think the ending is a little drawn out. One blindingly obvious [...]


    10. Wow!Mr. Zandri does it again!! This one will keep you guessing right up to the end. Just when you think you have it--wait for it!! I absolutely did not see this ending coming. What a great thing to not figure it out totally until you read it. Would totally recommend. You will not be disappointed if you like nitty gritty detecting. Thanks again Mr Zandri!


    11. I'm not a big reader of private dick books. And this wast my first foray into this type of book in a long time. While it wasn't perfect it was a light fun read. The story and the character's sardonic barbs kept me turning pages at a brisk pace. It was the main character's major flaw that knocked this down a star for me. Who has ever heard of a PI who blacks out when the action ramps up or his blood pressure goes to high? Other than that big issue it was an enjoyable read.


    12. Really great summer thriller read! I thought I knew about this murder case living in the area of "The Little Town of Bethlehem" but Zandri took the story to a whole new level. Don't want to be a spoiler, but the ending was tense and terrific! Didn't see any of it coming, which is the mark of a great crime thriller. Love Moonlight and his foibles. A great classic Dick if there ever was one!


    13. I think this is a top notch book with a detailed storyline and excellent characters. A more in depth review can be found on my blog atwendyhjones-bookaholicspo


    14. What a story!Moonlight. A surprising name for a 'dick'. A brilliant fast moving plot, with sufficient characters for a small town thriller. Well written in chandleresqe style, with an amazing climax. Would definitely read more from this author.


    15. EntertainingA modern, old-fashioned detective full of wit. I wasn't sure I would like the first-person narrative, but when I added narration, the story came alive. This was my first Dick Moonlight "adventure". I would read more, but only with the added narration of RC Bray.


    16. Entertaining hardboiled detective novel that kind of went off the rails for me at the end. I liked the main character, and the whole bullet in the brain thing is a very clever variation on this genre and adds a layer of poignancy. The ending didn't work for me, but still an entertaining read.


    17. Keeps you goingThis is a great suspense story which I enjoyed. Never saw the actual end coming and since this is my first Moonlight book, I am considering more. He has developed the characters well and the story moves along well.


    18. Great bookThis book will have you second guessing and unsure of your initial decisions as to who had done what. A great murder mystery all the way through.


    19. Good readI liked this book. it kept me on my toes. I would recommend it to anyone who likes suspense or mystery.


    20. A crime story that was fast moving and kept my interest. The criminal mind is unpredictable and so was the story. We will never know enough about the type of persons who do heinous criminal acts.
