    I was one of the first readers of Murder on the Lake of Fire and one of the first to discover this gripping new mystery series. The crimes are extraordinary, the characters are engaging, and the twisty plot is a fast-paced. I'm looking forward to the next book!
  • Jessica Therrien

  • Sabetha
    Holy cow! This book was so crazy, but crazy good. I'll be honest, I don't read blurbs, only genres. So I wasn't sure what I was getting into, I said holy shit many times through out this book. I will be writing a full review on but if you're into murder mysteries read this book! The only negative that I came across, was there were a few points that the writer flat out gave away the foreshadowing word for word instead of letting th...

    This book has restored my faith in mysteries! I read a lot of books, but have shied away from mysteries lately, because most of them make it too easy to guess the villain, or have a ho-hum story followed by a surprise twist. This book, however, kept me page-turning late into the night with a unique voice, great descriptions, and fun characters. Even better, this book kept me guessing to the end, but the villain ended up being the last person I wo...

    Murder on the Lake of Fire is a gripping story of intrigue, mystery and murder. Tormented special agent, Emory Rome, is sent on an investigation that is equal parts self-discovery and nail-biting suspense. Wilson's writing is pure poetry. A page turning, must read book!
  • Holly Kammier
    I was lucky enough to read this Murder on the Lake of Fire before its publication, and I absolutely LOVED all the twists and turns and completely surprise ending. The two main characters were so likable and fun. I can't wait to read the second book in this series. I highly recommend this book!

    It had been a while since I'd read a good old-fashioned murder mystery. And while Murder on the Lake of Fire is certainly not old-fashioned in context, its structure is comfortably reminiscent of those detective novels I loved so long ago. The twists and turns of a good who-done-it, the sometimes serious, sometimes campy characters you can't help but love and, of course, those quietly addictive "aha" moments when the mystery begins to unravel and...

    I usually don't sit for long stretches reading books, but found myself drawn to this one. Mysteries are my favorite genre though, and this is a good one.Mikel Wilson definitely has a knack for character development. He's able to pick out those few important elements such as eyes and expression that are able to give a clear picture in the reader's mind without being overly descriptive and slowing the pace of the storyline. He's able to touch on su...

    Murder on the Lake of Fire by Mikel J Wilson Twenty-three-year-old Emory Rome has his dream job as an investigator for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Already well known In law enforcement circles for the way he solved a notorious drug case, he is well on his way to big things in the Knoxville Office, when his boss gets a call for assistance from the sheriff of a small town. A promising high school figure skater has been burned to death wh...
  • Robin Powers
    Wow! I loved how twisted this mystery/suspense had me guessing and then second guessing myself. Special Agent Emory Rome has all sorts of intrigue surrounding his past when he returns to the small town he grew up in for his next case. PI Jeff Woodard definitely added his own special take as a competing investigator and the banter between the two was quite entertaining. Light on the romance, I enjoyed how the secrets unraveled and the clever atten...

    What a great murder mystery! Mikel Wilson writes so descriptively and vividly that I felt like I was in every scene -better than going to a movie! The end of every chapter had me wanting more and I absolutely LOVED the ending! Hurry up and write the sequel!

    I couldn't wait to read Murder on the Lake of Fire, and once I began, I couldn't put it down. I was hooked from p. 1 and read it--cover to cover--in one evening. (Well, early into the next morning!)Emory Rome, the protagonist, has already been through so much in such a short lifetime, but even he has more to learn about himself and the strength of character that he'll call upon. It's as much of a journey for Rome as it is for the reader, and ever...
  • Dave Flynn
    Murder on the Lake of Fire is definitely one of those page-turning mysteries that keeps you guessing all along the way. The author does a great job developing his characters and settings and bringing them to life for the reader. At times you feel like you're right there with Emory through the twists and turns of his investigation. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed! I'm already looking forward to what's next for Team Mourning Dove.

    Wow, I absolutely loved Murder on the Lake of Fire. It was gripping, fast-paced with some brilliant main characters who I loved. Emory Rome is a young special agent who has been called in to investigate a bizarre death in a quiet town. He knows the town well due to growing up there but leaving a few years back. I loved everything about this book, the murders were fabulous and completely different to anything I've read before. I loved Emory and th...

    I had the privilege of reading this before it was published, and let’s just say I’m a little obsessed. I literally have a Mourning Dove Investigations hat. And mug. And bookmark. I love mysteries, detective stories, and thrillers, and this book has fantastic elements of all those genres. The characters, and the dialogue, are so realistic and I found myself wanting to know more and more about them. There are lots of twists and turns and I gasp...

    I won this book on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. This book was a 3.5 for me, with leanings towards a 3. the plot was good and interesting, but I found myself not liking the characters. I couldn't connect with them, and that made it difficult to read. otherwise a decent read!
