Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold
In the third installment of the Montooth quintet, Carty Anderson and her friends go off to college at various institutions, but most of the Crew go to the same college. Carty is happily working away at her studies when her least favorite instructor is killed. Carty is suspected because of her involvement in archery and several lies from the killer lead Detective Mickey Malone to believe she may be the killer. But his gut feeling tells him Carty can’t be the suspect he is looking for. Meanwhile, Carty and her friends try to solve the mystery and keep up with their studies at the same time. Meanwhile, Cruz Cruz, the cruel, heartless, calculating man who attacked Carty and her friends in an earlier book, is manipulating all sides in the Cuban Revolution, which has now involved Carty’s friend Elena.
The style of writing in this book takes different perspectives very quickly, so at one point it may be talking about Carty’s perspective, then it switches to one of her friends’, then may switch to that of Castro or the revolutionary Cruz Cruz. I like the author’s writing style and storytelling abilities, and he gives very individual personalities to the individual characters. I did not read the first or second novel but I was able to easily pick up on what was happening in this one.
