Evanovich’s first foray into graphic novels brings Barney and Sam into a mystery involving voodoo!
Take a voodoo doll that resembles a friend and later discover that same friend missing, you have a mystery! Barnaby and Sam race to determine the origin of the voodoo doll in an attempt to locate their friend. Clues appear and a confrontation occurs. While happy to find their friend alive, the story is to be continued…
A very quick read, this first graphic novel by Evanovich and her daughter is most enjoyable. While I was familiar with her main characters, Barnaby and Sam, the mystery was new and exciting.
Appeal factors: Fast-paced, Suspenseful, Witty
Read-alikes: Troublemaker 2: a Barnaby and Hooker Graphic Novel by Janet and Alex Evanovich, Motor Mouth by Janet Evanovich
I chose this graphic novel because I was familiar with Evanovich’s novels and enjoyed the humor and mystery combination. I wondered how that would translate into a graphic novel and decided to sample this first by Evanovich and her daughter, Alex.
It is not necessary for a reader of the graphic novels to be familiar with Evanovich’s earlier works. The graphic novels are stand-alone and present a unique mystery, all their own.
