Sylver and Gold Book 1.
If you are looking for a serial killer detective story with romance, humour and talking dead, Sylver and Gold checks all these boxes. Michelle Larkin is a master of character development. The heart of her main characters is developed so effectively that you are fully immersed into the story by the second page. Though some are greatly flawed, you cannot help liking each and every character. I am a huge fan of Ms Larkin’s writing because it grabs onto my interest instantly. None of her books remind me of anyone else’s. Her stories are truly unique. What I also enjoy is her humour whether in dialogue or as part of a character she always has me chuckling at some point of the story. Sylver and Gold is the wonderful result of all of the above. It is a well crafted character driven mystery that you will not be able to put down until the end.
