Reviewing “Bloody Martini: A Felonious Monk Mystery” – Book 2 of “The Felonious Monk Mysteries” Series

Are you in the mood for a darkly comedic adventure? Look no further than author William Kotzwinkle’s Felonious Monk series, now featuring the second book in the saga, “Coalville.”

Meet Tommy Martini, a Benedictine monk with a bit of an anger problem. After escaping the corruption and danger of his hometown, Coalville, Tommy never wants to go back. Unfortunately, fate has other plans. A girl he once loved has disappeared, and his childhood best friend has been murdered. Now, Tommy must confront his demons and return to the town he thought he left behind for good.

But Coalville isn’t the same place he remembers. It’s on fire, both literally and figuratively. The mines are burning and the people are poisoned. The town is overrun with drugs and child prostitution. And at the heart of it all is Parade Square, the epicenter of corruption and depravity.

Despite the bleak setting, “Coalville” is a thrilling and humorous ride. Kotzwinkle’s writing is sharp and witty, with a keen insight into America’s small-town realities. The book is a spicy brew of violence, mystery, and satire that will keep readers up all night.

At the core of the story is Tommy, a flawed protagonist who struggles with his own demons even as he tries to uncover the truth about his friend’s murder and his former love’s disappearance. His journey is both entertaining and poignant, as he grapples with his own inner turmoil and confronts the darker side of his hometown.

The supporting cast of characters is equally engaging, particularly the shy girl from Tommy’s past who is determined to help him. Their dynamic adds a refreshing touch of warmth and humor to the story.

Overall, “Coalville” is a must-read for fans of dark humor, mystery, and satire. Kotzwinkle’s writing is top-notch, and the book is a whiplash adventure that will leave readers thoroughly entertained. So if you’re looking for a bloody martini of a book, look no further than “Coalville.” It’s a wild ride from beginning to end.
