Mainely Money by Matt Cost #BookReview #GoffLangdonMainelyMystery3 #EncirclePublications #5*

Money is power.

Those who have the money wield the power. Laid back, slacker detective Goff Langdon is confronted by this fact as he investigates the blackmailing of a U.S. senator.

What starts as a simple extortion case quickly becomes a race for survival as Langdon faces off against a veiled villain with big money and little morals.

Goff Langdon Mainely Mystery series

  1. Mainely Power
  2. Mainely Fear
  3. Mainely Money


The third book in a series which just keeps getting more and more exciting!

When Langdon is approached to investigate the blackmailing of a U. S. Senator, he has no way of knowing what he’s getting into, and those hiring him don’t really know who they’re dealing with. There’s more to this one than meets the eye and before we know it, Langdon and his loved ones find themselves in danger.

Oh, I love this series! Of course, the fact that there is one very personable labrador may just have a teensy weensy bit to do with that! There is so much going on between the covers of this book that the reader really needs to pay close attention. Langdon is, on the surface, his usual laid-back self but underneath he is as sharp as a tack.. With characters we now know and love, this is another well plotted mystery with plenty of side tales woven in. A thrilling ride from beginning to end and I couldn’t find fault even if I wanted to. Lots of highs, lows, plenty of excitement and some gripping action all add up to a phenomenal read and one I highly recommend. I would suggest, however, that you read this series from the beginning – that way you really get to know and love the characters, as I do. Five sparkling stars and well worth each and every one!

My thanks to the author for my copy of his novel; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
