Four days before Thanksgiving, the dead body of a paralegal is found dumped on a residential street in Midtown Detroit. A receipt for two cups of coffee in the gutter near her body leads Detectives Zannos and Wong to the New Delhi Donut shop. Questions arise – who killed her, and why did the murderer break her fingers and move her body?
A prequel to The Greeks of Beaubien Street and the other Greektown Stories.
When I got a newsletter from instafreebie.com with some free ebooks in the murder mystery genre, I first encountered this book. I thought it sounded very cute: The Donut Shop Murder. Luckily, the story was anything but cute. There was betrayal, forbidden love and of course … a bloody murder. Because this book was only 95 pages long, my review on it won’t be very long either. Overall I just really liked reading this book: I could feel a connection to the main characters (in only 95 pages!), I didn’t know who’d done it until the detectives knew it as well, and I definitely feel like reading more about the Greek Jill Zannos and her murder cases!
