Book Review: Dead Behind The Eyes by Brock Car

This is the first book I have read from this author and it hits the ground running as we learn about Max Riley, future CEO of Great Western who is having an affair and is subsequently found dead on his company’s jet on its arrival back in Omaha. Initially we have no shortage of possible suspects but once we pare down motive and opportunity it seems that there is only one suspect that can be considered but is that suspect the killer?

A very worthy and exciting mystery read which weaves together the central theme with a host of other topics which kept the book interesting. The book was far from predictable but I was a little disappointed with some of the medicine and psychology here which was oversimplified and at worst possibly misleading, but not enough to discard the book.

This book is exemplary of the whodunit genre at its best and I look forward to reading more from this very exciting new writer.
