Synopsis of Peter Pan Must Die

In John Verdon’s most sensationally twisty novel yet, Peter Pan Must Die, ingenious puzzle solver Dave Gurney brings his analytical brilliance to a shocking murder that couldn’t have been committed the way the police say it was.

The daunting task that confronts Gurney, once the NYPD’s top homicide cop: determining the guilt or innocence of a woman already convicted of shooting her charismatic politician husband.

The husband was felled by a rifle bullet to the brain while delivering the eulogy at his own mother’s funeral.

Peeling back the layers, Gurney quickly finds himself waging a dangerous battle of wits with a thoroughly corrupt investigator, a disturbingly cordial mob boss, a gorgeous young temptress, and a bizarre assassin whose child-like appearance has earned him the nickname Peter Pan.

Startling twists and turns occur in rapid-fire sequence.

And soon Gurney is locked inside one of the darkest cases of his career. One in which multiple murders are merely the deceptive surface under which rests a scaffolding of pure evil.

Beneath the tangle of poisonous lies, Gurney discovers that the truth is more shocking than anyone had imagined.

And the identity of the villain at the mystery’s center turns out to be the biggest shock of all.

My review

Very good.

Actually, the one I liked the most was the first one, Sé lo que estás pensando, whose plot is one of the most original that I’ve read in years, but all the other ones are also wonderful.

The worst thing about reading books as soon as they come out is that you forget what happened in the previous one, since the release dates are normally one year apart. Fortunately, it’s not usually necessary to take into account what happened in the previous one to completely understand the current one.

I don’t want to beat about the bush too much. The essential thing is that “Peter Pan Must Die” is very good and, even though it can be read independently from the others, it helps understand the characters better; they become more familiar. The plot is good, though the mystery of who the culprit is not as mysterious as in the previous ones.

I highly recommend it.
