Despite the fact that I’m not really into Halloween (I can take it or leave it), I really like this story, which begins with Beanie taking his little boys, Ethan and Evan, trick-or-treating. They visit the houses of several neighbors, many of who are quite odd, and one of whom will be revealed as a cold-hearted murderer (because, after all, it’s a cozy murder mystery, right? Ha!).

Trick or Treat?

Palmchat Gazette reporter Roland “Beanie” Bean is excited to take his kids, Ethan and Evan, trick-or-treating, but his excitement turns to concern when he discovers a human finger among the candy the boys collected!

Days later, Beanie learns that the finger belongs to someone he knows—Joshua Howard, a missing student who was interning at the Palmchat Gazette before he disappeared.

Beanie plans to find the intern, but soon he’s assigned to a shocking murder–a dead body in the jungle. Beanie heads to the crime scene and realizes he recognizes the victim as his new neighbor, Ivan Volkov.

As Beanie looks into the death of Volkov, he uncovers a strange connection between his neighbor and the missing intern.

Racing to discover the truth, Beanie is stunned when he learns the missing intern and his dead neighbor are linked to a heinous serial killer known as The Fury. But when he comes face to face with the murderer, Beanie must outwit a deranged maniac determined to make sure that secrets buried long ago stay hidden.

I had an absolute best reading this book. It is so good. It kept me up wondering who did it. I love the characters Dolan Bean has become a favorite. The story was too notch. The mystery was done quit well. This is the first I've read from this author but not the last. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a great mystery with fantastic characters.

I was looking for a non-gory Halloween story and figured Trick or Treat Murder might fit the bill. I was right. The plot turns this way and that, tricking the reader into believing one suspect is the killer, then another. As the story reaches its conclusion you realize what a treat you have been reading.
