Mysterious Reviews

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.
