Death of a Robber Baron Characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Party a grandiose event that he personally orchestrates The next morning his body is found in his study Pamela's boss the lawyer Jeremiah Prescott joins her for the investigation Now they have to figure out from among the many suspects who killed Henry Jennings. Death of a Robber Baron was an interesting and likable read I enjoyed it for the most part The two main characters were interesting and show promise though lacking an emotional feel in some parts other parts it came off well like with Preston s issues with what happened in the Civil war I really enjoyed the mystery aspect of the book because we got to follow Pamela and Mr Preston along as they set about solving the mysteries that pop up through the book we weren t just told what they did and how they came to their conclusions we saw it and see it from multiple perspectives usually Pamela or Preston s The only mystery related issue I had was that sometimes it just seemed to come a bit easy things clues and answers just fell neatly into their laps I did like that they kept their minds open about possibilities and didn t make snap uick judgments I also liked the open communication between Pamela and Prescott Prescott was an interesting fellow and made for a good friend boss and partner to Pamela though I admit I was expecting her to be partnered with her mentor Harry Miller whom I also liked His is an interesting history and I look forward to getting to know him Calm mild mannered intelligent and competent he and Pamela Thompson are rather alike in those aspects Both are sympathetic characters if not overly emotional most of the time in his case almost all of the time in hers Pamela Thompson is observant canny uick thinking intelligent sympathetic and likable She s also a widow left in rather severe financial straits after her husband committed suicide after suandering her fortune and embezzling from the bank where he worked leading to a whole different set of problems with the courts and the bank who thoughtthink she also had a hand in her husbands actions She goes to work for Mr Preston who both aided her before and represented her during her trial As a detective she gets a little training from Harry Miller some of which saved her life later which I liked mostly because with a lot of mysteries the main character is just dropped into the middle of one with absolutely no preparation whatsoever There is also her daughter who is dead though this happened a time before the present storyline Brenda s abusive murderous and altogether dislikable father has been released from prison and is stalking and threatening both of them on top of dealing with a jewel thief and murders This had all the aspects of an emotional ride as well as a mystery the only problem was like the mystery it was factual then emotionally engaging that is these things were just happening but with emotional blinders on a lot of the time The only thing that really kind of bothered me was this lack of deep emotional connection I m not saying I didn t connect with the characters I did it just lacked the depth of feeling I thought would fit especially with Pamela Rather opposite than what usually happens the beginning felt a bit rushed so that we could get to the present time in the book We re told that Pamela s daughter has died but we don t get the emotional punch of it that I ve come to expect from such tragedies I will admit it lacked some of the detailing I m normally fond of but this wasn t a big issue on my part because I thought the focus on the mystery aspect of the book was well done though I would ve liked a stronger historical aspect to the book beyond the Civil War carriages trains and Lizzie Borden The writing is a bit weird for me a little stilted like the author hadn t written in a while and is just beginning to stretch his fingers warming up so to speak but that wasn t a huge issue for me The other issue I had was that it felt like the author was trying to fit too much into one book Not only was their a run down of several characters history there was Pamela becoming a detective working for Macy s Brenda s father out of prison threatening and at times attacking Pamela and Brenda it s never fully revealed what the Police planned to use him for or what will really happen to him will he get out of prison again Preston trying to get Dennis Brenda s father to stop Pamela working for Mrs Jennings on the cryptic notes and goings on at her country home Preston s investigation regarding George Allen and wife Hellen Mr Jennings being murdered jewel thieves multiple affairs and secrets not to mention a possible romance blooming between Pamela and Preston Don t get me wrong it was put together rather well for the most part but it just seemed a lot to pack into one book and we didn t get a lot of attention on some issues as we did on others which was both good and bad on one hand it didn t take away from the main story on the other some uestions weren t fully explored or answered There were also some aspectscharacters that were introduced that didn t go anywhere like Mr Williams NYPD Gloria and Mr Fisher they all had opportunity and promise to add some personalprofessional conflict but it didn t really develop beyond some snipping and a gossip article Overall it was interesting and I enjoyed it for the most part I wasn t uite sure who the murderer was on either of the murders I suspected who it might be in Mr Jennings murder and I was right about who did the fatal blow though I wasn t entirely sure about who else was involved I think there is promise to the series so I ll be looking for the next one when it comes out 35 stars
