The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini

Book Description:

Two eighty-year old victims…

…had roofies in their system.

Why would someone give the victims a date-rape drug?

Luca has heard the rumors and now there’s an official complaint. A high-end assisted-living community’s ownership has been accused of abuse. It seems like a straightforward matter to investigate, but is there something more sinister going on?

Is this about euthanasia or greed?

Luca thinks there may be a third option.

With a plate full of burglary investigations, one of which, led to the victims being pistol-whipped, Luca is swamped. Will he be able to unravel the clues and get to the truth?

His gut says there’s a connection…

…but who is behind it?

Is it only about a payday?

You’ll love this next installment in the Luca Mystery series, because of hard-nosed, relentless, detective work and his mind for unraveling the lies and deception.

Get it now.

The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini

The Grandpa Killer by Dan Petrosini is an exciting book featuring detective Luca, and is book ten in the  Luca Mystery Series! Yes, ten! Yet this easily reads as a standalone.

People in care are dying. They’re old, and as expected, old people often die. But this many? It’s easy to overlook what’s going on right under your nose unless you start looking at the figures. And the fact that many of the old people that are dying, were not actually ill, was enough to spark a few red flags in Detective Luca’s eyes. That, and how the families left behind were reaching out to him saying how their recently deceased loved ones were not only fit for their ages, but had made plans for the future. Suspicious? You bet! But proving it to his boss, Captain Herrera was no mean feat!
I really enjoyed this story, since it was not only written well, but realistic too!  It is quite plausible that something like this could actually happen. It’s a bit like crime stories where prostitutes are being killed, and those cases wrongly don’t really get the attention they deserve. Pensioners in care homes, well, if one of them should die, it wouldn’t usually look that suspicious, right? But then the numbers keep rising…
There were plenty of suspects and red herrings to keep me reading this fast! I’ll definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author and reading the previous books in this series. I also hope there is a new future series on the horizon too, as I love starting the first book in a series when they have just been launched. Thanks to Sarah, of BOTBS publicity for my review copy and introducing me to this fabulous new (to me) author! The Grandpa Killer is an entertaining and exciting read, with a super satisfying conclusion.

    Can’t say I was wildly keen on the title but the book itself sounds like a decent enough read and I’d also be interested in checking out this and anything else from the author as it’s my kind of genre. xx
