I Saw What I Saw

Sheila is inquisitive, thorough and curious. So when an unfortunate event happens right under her nose in the peaceful town of Harmony, you bet she’s going to get to the bottom of it. With her crime reporting history, a group of handy friends and her sharp instincts, Sheila is on the case. But when the case begins to turn into a complex maze, uncertainty sets in and the crime is turning into a situation where the more you look, the less you see. Sheila realizes she needs all her tricks, and that of her team, to stay on top of their leads and find answers.

I saw what I saw by Tony Garritano is a riveting mystery story following an enthusiastic former crime reporter, Sheila, who witnesses a murder. This novel can be categorized as a cozy mystery I suppose, but only because the protagonist is so likable and the atmosphere is not as severe as you would expect from a gritty crime drama. The mystery is still relentlessly intriguing and the story is suspenseful because of it.

With the protagonists history in the field of uncovering truths, she is burdened with the sense of duty to uncover the truth behind the murder. This dogged determination is endearing and makes for very engaging reading as the pieces come together. But for a case that has been swept under the carpet, Sheila has to take the case on herself – not without the help of her trusted deli patrons, cul de sac neighbours, her best friend and mother. This motley collection of characters, once again, serves to lighten the story and provides some interesting people to get to know.

Author Tony Garritano made what could have been a gruesome and triggering story into a light-hearted, brief and jovial one. Never have I been so chipper while reading about a murder. His simple way of describing the day to day activities, scenes, characters, and experiences lures you into a story that seems simple up front, but as the mystery continues to grow the easy storytelling ensures readers are never more than a step behind.

I saw what I saw is a thrilling murder mystery that thrives on the back of its captivating protagonist and the fascinating riddle at the center of the story. Fans of young adult crime fiction stories will find this story interesting to follow as every step and every turn connects to the next unfolding event.
