I have to hand it to the author of The Last Clinic for basing the plot around a controversial topic I am doubly impressed that Mr Cusick is able to write such a good thriller without getting bogged down in the issue of right to life vs Pro choice and being fairly balanced in his approach Actually this mystery isn t so much about abortion rights as it is about the price of extremism Or it is simply a tight and witty mystery that keeps your attention to the end Take your pick Or take bothPopular anti abortion preacher Jimmy Aldridge is gunned down while setting up his protest signs in front of one of the last abortion clinics in Jackson Mississippi Of course the main suspect is good looking clinic doctor Nicoletti and there are plenty of people who want to nail the murder on him But when investigator Darla Cavannah finds 3000 in small bills inside the reverend s car she suspects there may be another suspect and another motiveThere are a lot of nice twists and turns in this tale but it is the characters that really made this a superior mystery Darla is a transplanted northerner whose deceased but well respected husband makes her a little less of a stranger in this slightly nepotistic Mississippi city Her sheriff friend Shelby is a delightfully charismatic redneck In fact most of the characters in this novel are well written and full of eccentricities that endear them to the reader For that matter Jackson Miss is practically a character in the book as Cusick writes about it with such flair It is not surprising to find that Jackson is Cusick s real life hometown There is only one person in the book that seems a bit forced and that is a bungling Elvis impersonating police officer but he does make for good comic reliefAs far as the plot goes this is one of the few mysteries that had me guessing to the very end I like it when a who dunnit has many suspects and all of them seem plausibleincluding the one that actually dunnit There is just the right amount of seriousness and wit to keep this story entertaining This is an easy recommendation for all mystery fans I understand this is Gary Cusick s debut novel Very promising indeed

The Last Clinic Darla Cavannah Mysteries by Gary Gusick is a 2013 Alibi publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI have started and stopped with this book several times which of course is a strong indicator of how things eventually turned out once I finally resolved to finish it once and for all First of all I think the author was brave by centering the crime around such a hot button issue as abortion which may have raised a few eyebrows initially However that subject matter was handled very professionally and Darla waded through the mine field and lived to tell the tale I had no problems with the set up per se and I actually liked Darla but I did have some issues with the way the south was characterized I have lived in four states across the deep south and have several relatives who reside in Mississippi none of whom behave like the characters depicted in this novel and I feel this does the state a great disservice There are many prolific authors from Mississippi as well as other talented artist So for the record just because someone is from the south doesn t mean they are right wing extremist religious zealots stupid ignorant uneducated or sexist or go around blessing everyone s heart Having said that the mystery and crime elements are solid and there was even a little romance thrown in for good measure The writing is fine the pace steady with a few surprises along the way However the story didn t immediately grab my attention and I really struggled to stay involved in it I am glad I finally finished it though as the last uarter of the book was compelling and Darla is very adept at interrogation so it was fascinating to watch her work Overall this one gets a 25 rounded to 3
