Tom Stone Day Of The Dead by Don Simkovich & Lon Casler Bixby
Tom Stone Day Of The Dead Book Review
Today is my first time joining in with a book tour, now that Viggo is going into full time school, I am hoping to have time to enjoy one of my favourite hobbies before having children, reading! Today I want to tell you about Tom Stone Day Of The Dead and my thoughts, firstly the blurb.
DOUBLE-CROSS, REVENGE, AND MURDER. IT’S JUST ANOTHER HALLOWEEN IN LA.
UNTIL DETECTIVE TOM STONE TAKES ACTION.
Multiple murders with one grisly connection have Detectives Tom Stone and Jake Sharpe pursuing every lead. Their main suspect, Anthony Angelino, fresh out of prison, dreams of building a new empire, but his past quickly catches up to him. Once again he is on the run from the police and the drug cartel that tried to ruin him.
The head of the cartel, Frank DeVito, tails Stone hoping the Detective’s investigation will flush out Angelino. Then he can exact his revenge and claim what he says Angelino has stolen – a large shipment of pure cocaine.
Angelino’s girlfriend, Sara, pleads for him to escape the deadly lifestyle. As the body count rises, Stone confronts the challenges in his relationship with Alisha Davidson, Angelino’s defense attorney.
Halloween dramatically twists into Day of the Dead celebrations as cocaine’s promised riches weave a tale of bloody betrayal, shattered friendships and loves both lost – and won.

Lon lives out of his photography studio in Burbank, California where he shares his living space with his wonderful, albeit spoiled, Silver Lab named Silver.
This is the first crime thriller I have read in a very long time, and although this is the third book in the Tom Stone series, it didn’t require the other two being read first, although after finishing the book I did find myself downloading the first two as the story had me wanting to know more about the character.
Tom Stone Day of The Dead was very easy to get into, but like all books that I read I don’t like to put them down, my husband always dreads me reading a book as he gets very little conversation out of me when i’m engrossed in a book. The characters had good depth and the twists and turns kept my attention right the way to the end.
I am not a great lover of horror and in depth discussions and descriptions of anything gruesome, I have a vivid imagination of my own, so don’t need it spelling out for me, and this book had enough information for my imagination to fill in the gaps!
So if you are looking for an easy to read crime thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you in it to the end, go grab this one.
If crime thrillers are not your thing, why not try a little romance, check out I thought I knew You by Meg Buchanan.
