Just Another Bad News, by PM Browne 


Just Another Bad News was actually a very refreshing read in the crime/mystery genre.

It started off simple enough: main character comes across a dead body. Main character calls police. However, circumstances as well as something that seems like a good idea at the time land the main character as a prime suspect in the case. From there it takes off and unfolds in a variety of different ways that kept me guessing (which is a very difficult thing to do). Not only that, but it takes a bigger and broader direction than most crime novels take.
Aside from a bit of silly romance (which no crime novel is complete without), my biggest problem was the editing. And I’m not sure if it’s the editing, or confusion over certain phrases. I’m not calling it bad grammar–it actually sounds more like English might be a second language. With just a bit more polishing, Just Another Bad News could easily stand out amidst the myriad of mysteries populating the genre.
