After Church Mysteries by Will Martin

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends this a 3 star read.                  

I was drawn to the description of this book however I was not aware of it, or the author, before viewing on NetGalley but it sounded like the type of book I would enjoy reading. I was wrong. Don’t get me wrong, the book is good its just not my type of read.

The author is excellent at describing where, when and why but I did not get the comedy side of it… just wasn’t for me.

I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.



Armed with snacks and voted ‘Most Likely to Succeed’ by his fly-by-night private investigator school, Reverend Richard Burgess has left the pulpit behind to try his hand at helping people in a different way.

After shedding his pastor duds for a newly acquired closetful of somewhat questionable disguises, Detective Burgess sets out to leverage his considerable people smarts to solve crimes and bring closure to his clients.

In this hilarious novel of linked short stories, the former minister busts a smuggling ring, solves a murder, launches a viral video on YouTube, tracks down a ghost, and after exposing a deadly real estate scam, finds CNN in his front yard.

After church is over, staying out of trouble might just be Richard’s new full-time job.
