Product Description

Product Description

Roger and Suzanne take a working vacation at Denali National Park, six million acres of natural wilderness in northern Alaska, to investigate the deaths of a couple they had previously met in Peru and Chile. The FBI investigation concludes the couple was killed during an accidental attack by a wild bear. But Roger’s partner Vincent Romero has reasons to doubt whether the official conclusion is correct. Roger and Suzanne find themselves stalking a wily killer, who is in turn stalking them. Who murdered the couple and why were they killed? Far from their usual haunts for investigations, South America and California, can Roger and Suzanne figure out whodunit in a case they begin with absolutely no clues, no suspects, and a crime scene larger than the entire State of Massachusetts?

When the author first approached me with the chance to read and review his book, I was initially interested in the Alaskan setting, as it is one of my top bucket list destinations to visit. As a fan of mysteries I was interested in that side of the story as well.

Last went into great detail when describing the Alaskan setting. The reader is given a very clear image of the surroundings especially in the National Park. Not only did he describe the climate, wild life and landscape, but he gave a detailed history of the park as well. This was definitely the strongest part of Unbearably Deadly and what kept my interest to continue reading.

Unfortunately these descriptions of the setting greatly overshadowed the mystery. It left little space to expand on any background information that might have been pertinent to solving the crime of what really happened to the deceased tourists.

I tried not to dwell on grammatical errors, but there were times where inconsistencies in the plotline and repetitive unnecessary dialogue became difficult to ignore. Although I kept reading I felt less invested in the story.

Unbearably Deadly is a mystery that had the potential to be a decent read, however the execution has hindered it to be so.

I was sent a copy of Unbearably Deadly by Jerold Last, from the author in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa554f300) out of 5 stars Alaskan history and whodunnit Oct. 17 2015
By CA reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this series because every book is half mystery, half travel guide, told by a narrator who in my mind sounds like Bogart. This time Roger and Suzanne are in Alaska in Denali National Park, investigating the suspicious deaths of friends of Roger's business partner. There are the usual FBI, CIA, and bad guys peppering the story but the gem sections deal with the Alaskan wilderness. Timely reading, given the recent official renaming of Mt. McKinley as Denali and the season premiere of "Gold Rush." In short, a fun way to learn some Alaskan history whle also enjoying a classic whodunnit.
HASH(0xa554f54c) out of 5 stars I wasted my money and lost sleep Jan. 10 2016
By P. K. Dasgupta - Published on Amazon.com

I wasted my money and lost sleep. So beware. Between books I have already bought and the monthly freebie thanks to owning a Samsung Galaxy phone, and all the other reading I have to do professionally, I never subscribed to Kindle unlimited figuring its $10 a month best not spent. So when I embarked on reading this book (why? later..) I figured OK I pay for it. Bad decision. Now I realize I should have paid for the unlimited, if for no other reason, than to read the rest of the series!

But reader beware... First night I started this one it was rather late - only the knowledge that even if I stay up the night I am not going to finish it made me put it down at 40%. But like all good mysteries it gets harder to put down the further along you are and truth be told, the beginning is diluted by travelog and history and all that crap. I am one of those people who goes to an open buffet multiple times to get the different items - I dont like them mixing on my plate. So unlike some other reviewers here I am not so fond of travelog in my cup of whodunits. Admittedly, the history of gold mining in Alaska was relevant and provided some of the necessary background. So the second night I did finish it. At 3 AM! What can I say, could not put it down.

This is my first encounter with the dynamic duo. It would appear that hospitals must do well whenever Roger and Susan are after bad guys and it also would appear that they have no problems dispensing frontier-style justice. Much like Bollywood films of my childhood (they have largely, not all, gotten more sophisticated now), heroes and broad guys are very black and white. The heroes get momentarily in trouble and then quickly get the upper hand, boy do they ever!

I could probably find some faults with some of the avant garde tech stuff. The camera cannot be connected to a laptop by the internet inside a mine shaft. In a place where even outside the shaft there is no cell signal, how would one find "internet". Bluetooth is possible but that has so limited range that instead of wasting that power, one would just connect the camera with a cable. In reality it s not logical that any one would be sitting there and watching the laptop. So one would periodically retrieve the footage and look at it elsewhere. To do so, a laptop is totally unnecessary, one would simply provide a large enough SD card in the camera and exchange it on each trip.

I and my wife have been to Denali. But never stayed at the lodge. Needs to be rectified it seems. Did I say that I don't like travelogs with my mysteries?

REVIEW: UNBEARABLY DEADLY by Jerold Last

The awaited return of dynamic detective duo Roger and Suzanne Bowman, for the first time takes them away from both their Southern California home, and their usual investigative stomping grounds, Latin America. This time they are requested by Roger' s new partner in the private detection agency to check up on the deaths of two of his good friends. All three were long-term undercover agents of the CIA in the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile. The couple were brutally attacked by a bear, on vacation in the Denali Forest in Alaska...or were they? The only known truth is that the two died, but why and how will have to wait for the expertise of Roger and Suzanne, who once again deliver an exciting, scenic, well-designed mystery.

Good addition to the series. Interesting plot, excellent description of the locale and the usual good characterizations. I enjoy the descriptions and history of the area, which are always presented in a way that doesn't intrude on the storyline and particularly like the ongoing characters, who are mature, sensible and have no issues, which seems to not be case in many mysteries now.
HASH(0xa554f8a0) out of 5 stars "Unbearably Deadly" by Jerold Last is a murder mystery not to miss. Jan. 12 2015

Re: "Unbearably Deadly" read smoothly and was enjoyable. There are enough false clues to keep your curiosity alive and to make it difficult to put the book aside. This book is a murder mystery not to miss. Having read previous books by Jerold Last, featuring Roger and Suzanne, the narrative by Roger reads well......Jim Smith.
