Deadly Enterprise by Kevin G. Chapman Book Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

A girl is found dead in the river. Her death is considered an overdose and nobody wanted to spend longer on the case than absolutely necessary. To them, it was an open and shut case. The only one who took notice of her death was the medical examiner. She insists that somebody do something to investigate the case. She feels that the girl was murdered. Nobody really takes her too seriously until another body is discovered with the same consistencies as the first.
I actually really did enjoy this book more than I thought I would. I mean I didn’t love it, but I really enjoyed it. It was much better than the first book in this series. It’s easier to read. The characters were much more lively in the book. There were many parts where the book still felt a bit stale. Which is why I enjoyed it but didn’t love it. There is a major character adjustment in one of the detectives. I can honestly say that it really helped me enjoy the book a lot better as well. This book didn’t read like a Criminal Minds episode as much as the first book did either.
This book was also narrated by the narrator. I’m beginning to think that the first book was the first book he ever narrated. If I’m wrong, it’s not meant as an insult. Just an observation. He seems to have found his niche a bit more with this one. He comes off more comfortable and less unsure of himself. It was really nice to hear. I’m curious to see if he’s going to narrate other books. Maybe some more of his own. Maybe some of others. It would be nice to see how he does.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than I did in the first book. I might consider giving both of them a chance again in the future because of it. Sometimes I really feel like I’m being overly critical when I don’t like books. However, I realize that we aren’t going to love every book we come across. I am curious to see if there will be more books in this series. I wonder where they will go. My curiosity on it all definitely feels like a sign to me. It’s an enjoyable read that I fully recommend to crime lovers out there.

  1. Thanks so much for the honest and objective review! You’re correct that Righteous Assassin was my first attempt at narrating a novel. There were some problems and I’m sure I’d do better if I did it again. Deadly Enterprise was a much better audiobook. The character voices were more well-defined, the audio quality was better, and I’m sure I was more comfortable with the process. Book #3 in the series — Lethal Voyage — will be done by the end of 2020 and I’ll be sure to let you know. It’s a process, and I’m always trying to get better as a writer and as a narrator. Cheers! — Kevin G. Chapman
