The Hanged Man's Tale : An Inspector Mazarelle Mystery by Gerald Jay


It all started with a body hanging upside down held by his ankle.  There is a tarot card in his pocket of the position he's in.  Mazarelle knows the man they jailed is not the killer.  So he continues to try to find the killer.

Nan A. Talese and Edelweiss alllowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has already been published and you can get a copy now.

As Mazarelle keeps asking questions and looking for the truth, he discovers that there are cops involved.  Since he won't back off, his boss suspends him and sends him home.  All that does is give him more time to look for the killer.

As he works his way through clues, he gets closer to the killer.  He finds the killer and almost dies himself but he survives.  But finding out who was giving the orders to the killer is harder yet.  He doesn't give up...
