Book Review: The Celtic Dagger by Jill Patterson (A Fitzjohn Mystery)

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Genre: Mystery

Age Recommended: 12 and up

This book wasn’t very engaging, and had new characters introduced very often that didn’t always add to the book. Moreover, near the end of the book, it suddenly became very disturbing as a murderer was revealed, and I found it difficult to continue reading.

—————————————-

Fitzjohn is about to leave for a well-deserved break when he’s guilt-tripped into solving one more case.

A man had just been murdered with two stabs to his neck and back. Moreover, the dagger that had been used to kill him had been reported as missing, along with two other artifacts that were later found in his house, and his colleague’s house.

As Fitzjohn works this case, he learns that this man’s main rival was his own brother, James, who didn’t see eye-to-eye with anything the dead man had once said. With all clues pointing to James, the police are ready to apprehend him as soon as evidence is found.

However, when more people are attacked, and James’ alibi  holds, the police must start looking for the real murderer, and fast.

Will they find the murderer?
