Murder on Olympus - Review

Keep reading and find out more about the book and the author. 

Murder on Olympus (Plato Jones #1) 
 by Robert B. Warren
Murder on Olympus
At first glance, the Gods of Olympus are as different from one another as salt is from sugar. Despite their bickering, they share a universal bond, a thread of commonality that unites them.
They’re all jerks.
After a stint with the Olympic Bureau of Investigation, Plato Jones is through with the Gods and their political games. Against his protests, he's drawn into a murder investigation, where the murderer's targets are the Gods themselves.
Plato has cracked some tough cases: exposing cheating spouses, capturing treasonous heretics, hunting three-headed dogs. But this time he’s in over his head. How can he solve a crime that’s impossible to commit? And what chance does Plato—a mere mortal—have against something powerful enough to kill a God?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder on Olympus is a refreshing, original story that presents gods and goddess that lives among us. A former worker of the Olympic Bureau of Investigation, Plato Jones is now a private investigator. After Gods start appearing dead he sees himself involved again with them and their world.

In the world created by Robert B. Warren, The Gods of Olympus are celebrities, they are known by the whole world, the paparazzis follow them everywhere and “they cannot be killed” (until now). This world seems real, is totally believable, interesting, exciting, funny and intriguing. Is easy to imagine it and you want to know more and more.

This is a story that moves really fast, with twist and several surprises. The mystery is sustained during the whole book and there are no obvious answers. The author did a great work writing a story that gains intensity as it moves on.

This book has a really good writing style, the words float smoothly and the reading is easy and engaging. It’s a story with great dialogues, comical situations and a bit of action.

The characters are amazing. Plato, the main character, is likeable and well described. He is an adult with real problems, a divorced man with a great sense of humor. His friends and the rest of the characters are equally fantastic. You will meet a different Hercules, Hermes, Ares, Aphrodite among others.

Overall, this is an excellent written book, with great doses of humor and mystery. It’s a must for lovers of mythology and detectives' adventures. I will be waiting for the next adventure of Plato Jones.
