I received an advance copy ARC of this book for review This does not change how I reviewed this book Phantom Limb is the fourth Daniel Rinaldi mystery book but is the first one I have read Mystery books are some of my favorite go to books I started reading mystery books as a young teen because my mom grandma and aunt all read them Growing up my grandma mom aunt and I would talk mystery books and trade our favorite books back and forth over the years The description on the back of the book Psychologist and Pittsburgh Police Department consultant Daniel Rinaldi has a new patient Lisa Harland a local girl once made a splash in Playboy and the dubious side of Hollywood before bottoming out Back home down and out again she married one of the city s richest and most ruthless tycoons Lisa s challenge to Danny is that she intends to commit suicide by 700 PM His therapist skills may buy some time but exiting she s kidnapped right outside his office Summoned to the Harland estate Danny is forced through a bizarre seuence of events to be the bag man on the ransom delivery This draws him into a deadly cat and mouse game with a brilliant lethal adversary Complicating things is the unhappy Harland family whose members have dark secrets of their own along with suspect loyalties as well as one of Danny s other patients a volatile vet whose life may like Lisa s be at risk What is really at stake here I was instantly engrossed and hooked and the book is action packed the whole way through I do not want to give of the plot away It is a mystery so of course there are numerous characters introduced and many suspects The main character Daniel Rinaldi acknowledges the fact that he is someone who seems to find himself in the middle of crazy mysteries and cases I love that the author did this Some mystery series thrust the main character into one crazy situation after another like it is commonplace I think it is apparent in a good way that the author has a psychotherapist background it is mentioned in the beginning of the ARC that Palumbo currently practices psychotherapy It adds levity to the character of Daniel Since this was not the first book in the series I was worried I may be confused However that was not the case This book stands alone while also clearly complimenting the other books in the series in that it makes references to other cases that I assume were discussed in the previous books It helps give background to the character of Daniel but does not spoil too much of what happened previously so that it will be easy for me to go back and read the previous books One of the things I kept thinking about while reading this book is how I could envision this as a TV show or movie It struck me as a Bones type of book I have not read the books that Bones is based on but I have watched the show The way the characters lives are interspersed into the cases in an organic way is what made me think of Bones while reading Phantom Limb If you enjoy mysteries and do not mind gritty then this is a great book for you I loved it I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in the series Plus I will definitely be recommending this book to my mom and aunt Sadly I cannot recommend it to my grandma though she probably has access to all the books she wants in Heaven Here are some nuggets uotes that I loved All are non spoilers Yet like with my father a felt sense of her lingers Perhaps this is true for everyone That those with whom we re most intimately connected persist not only in memory but almost like missing parts of ourselves Like phantom limbs we feel their presence even though they re gone forever Page 138 Whenever I feel a strong wind I think of Elvira He glanced over at me Our old nanny when I was a child She used to say the sound of the wind was the wail of lost souls the dead flying around the world looking for a way into heaven Page 150 Note about the uotes This is in ARC so page numbers may be changed and it is also possible the text or uotes themselves could be edited before being published It is uotes like these that make this book stand out as different from other mysteries It has so many other elements than just the mystery and delves deeper into characters than many mysteries do Check it out and let me know what you think Phantom Limb will be released in September by Poisoned Pen Presslostbraincellweeblycom
