At the end of the original Absolution, the Executor traveled back in Time and altered Reality. But by doing so, he set in motion a plan to end his existence and collapse Creation. Because of his actions, there is Absolution: REDUX…
In 1947, a gangster murders private investigator Raymond Adams. In 2011, he’s brought back to life for 24 hours to solve the supernatural murder of a Hollywood Adult film star.
When the son of a Pit Lord is murdered in Hollywood, the celestial beings in charge of the Realms ask Raymond Adams to figure who did it and find the victim’s missing soul. Without memories of his life, he accepts the case to gain eternal peace. But the job is daunting:
24 hours to nab a killer…
24 hours to find a missing soul…
24 hours to unravel the victim’s exotic private life…
24 hours to stop a plot to send the universe into chaos…
With only the help of a possessed cop and a medium, Adams must trek through a Hollywood underground filled with pornography, prostitutes, and sadists, along with supernatural monsters. But can he solve the case when his own haunting memories keep surfacing, telling him exactly what kind of man he was in life?
I must say this is definitely a different type of mystery novel then I usually read. That's a good though as it let's it stand out. We meet Raymond a P.I. that was murdered in 1947. He has been trapped in a realm until he can rid himself of some things so when an important murder happens in 2011 the celestial beings send him down to investigate. He gets a whopping twenty four hours to solve it. Thanks to the huge time jump he essentially knows no one making this a challenge. Eventually a possessed cop and a kooky medium come across his path providing some interesting assistance as they work to solve the case. Makes for an intriguing read with a new twist. If you like mystery and are looking for something supernatural as well ad a change of pace I would give this a try. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
