Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Missing Scarab Beetle — Columbkill Noonan

Read date: March 3, 2018
Rating: 4.5/5
Format: E-book

An endearing character from the start, the mediocre detective Barnabas Tew is commissioned to find a missing Egyptian god and must maneuver through the (at times, deceptive) obstacle course of the gods to fulfill his task. Barnbas Tew reminds one of a lighthearted Poirot, with delightfully interjected humor and a large, curious cast of characters. Noonan’s command of the language is very evident and facilitates and enhances the reader’s experience, providing hints of reality in even the most mythical adventures. The novel is enjoyable from page one with excellent pacing and still more depth beneath the thoroughly entertaining surface. A fun and intriguing read that will keep you guessing, and a great choice for any reader beginning her foray into detective stories.
