It’s not often I get to hear the reader’s comments on one of books while they’re in the process of reading it, so having Unbound Underground review Decontamination this week was a real treat.
Not only did I get a four star review of Decontamination on The Unbound Underground blog, with both some gratifying compliments and points for development, but during the week on twitter I got to listen in on the thought process as the reviewer was reading.

“Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour: murder and conspiracy from the perspective of an obituary writer…an interesting new take!
“Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour: and someone stabbed to death in the first few pages? classic.
“Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour: you’d think a sleuth story in the age of Google would be less compelling somehow…and yet, it’s not.

And now for some compulsive honesty: “A Kiss by the Clowns” is going to be a hard act to follow, it being one of my new favorites…
More compulsive honesty: However, “Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour is actually doing a hell of a job. It’s really a pretty fun book.
end of compulsive honesty: case in point, exhibit a and all that. “Puff goes the donkey.” Nicely put Ms. Seymour.
“Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour: Hurrah! Shaping up to be a really good read!
“Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour: though the romance subplot seems a little out of place with other more witty twists on the genre.
“Decontamination” By S Gail Seymour: and the body count rises, it will be interesting to see who actually survives the book!
Here are some thoughts: “thoughtful and engrossing, and also amusing and occasionally comical…intelligent and tightly-executed!”
Finally! Full review of “Decontamination” by S Gail Seymour posted for your perusal.
One thing this reviewer brought up was the romantic sub-plot. I think he’s right, it could have been downplayed a little. That makes me glad Legal Highs, the second Matt Kasey Mystery has less of this element.
