The Man with the Golden Mind is mind blowing.

The Man with the Golden Mind: A Detective Maier Mystery (The Detective Maier Mystery Series Book 2) by [Vater, Tom]

Although this book, by German author Tom Vater is a mystery, it is also fits into the suspense thriller genre with a strong helping of pulp fiction. Being from the U.S. and growing up in the Sixties, I only heard what the mainstream media told me about the Vietnam War. After 1973, when the first troops started coming home, it was the end of the war, as far as I was concerned. The MIAs were a constant source of worry and my heart went out to their loved ones, but after 1975 or so, Viet Nam just sort of  fell of the grid for most of the general public in my country.

Well, The Man with the Golden Mind brings postwar Viet Nam back on the grid. As you walk along with Cultural Attache Rendel and his mysterious spy cohort, code named Weldmeister, you can almost smell the damp smell from the muddy river. You can feel the humidity. You meet with those who seek justice after their families, their fortunes and their lives ended up in ruins. Unfortunately, in Rendel and Weldmeister's line of work, or outside his line of work in Rendel's case, you couldn't trust anybody.

In 2001, Rendel's daughter Julia seeks the services of Detective Maier to find out what happened to her father in Viet Nam back in 1976, when he ended up dead. Soon, this beauty goes missing This is a high adrenaline piece and I won't tell you anything more without releasing any spoilers.

Time for some Deadly Stuff and more by Joyce Cato.

Product Details

Being a travelling chef sounds like fun, but when Jenny Starling runs into a suspicious death at an Oxford college...well... maybe if you're a sleuth or a mystery buff, you'd call it fun.
Traveling cook Jenny Starling lands a summer job catering for the conference trade at a prestigious Oxford College, but she doesn’t expect murder to be either on the menu or on the syllabus. An unpopular member of a taxidermy society is found dead in Hall, and Jenny is reluctantly persuaded by the college bursar to help the suspicious police solve the case. That’s easier said than done when nobody has a particularly strong motive, and absolutely everybody seems to have an iron-clad alibi.

Joyce Cato has a lot more mysteries up her sleeve. Check them out on her Amazon link:
