Many intriguing elements – the murder of a good friend’s cousin, Aldo DiLallo; Mascara Man, an international hit-man; a cold case; the murder of a judge; and more - are interwoven throughout the storyline to comprise an exciting murder mystery novel. Lieutenant Robert Beaudry of the Montreal police force works through the evidence, deceit, and lies to solve the mysteries. At the same time, he is juggling his relationship with Pat. She seems distant at times, and he fears she may be ready to break up with him. Her job presents many challenges. Although Pat is forging her independence after a failed marriage, she is willing to give love another chance. In Tainted Evidence: A Lieutenant Beaudry Novel, written by Michael Kent, a fascinating tale unfolds.
The book has a realistic, authentic tone – the reader can easily picture the settings and the characters. The traffic jams caused by Montreal’s ongoing street construction annoys the lieutenant on a daily basis. The local French bistro, as well as other restaurants, are delightful. Characters, such as personnel in the police department, the witnesses, and the DiLallo family, have distinctive and often complicated personalities, adding to the credibility of the story. The book is written in a fast-paced, entertaining style, engaging the reader from the first page to the last. Author Michael Kent has penned the fourth story in the Lieutenant Beaudry series in Tainted Evidence. While it is a stand-alone book, readers will want to read the entire series to capture the full story of these enticing characters. A captivating book!
