Frank Adams, a distinguished accident investigative consultant, is suddenly thrust into a perilous situation when Mrs. Rawlson enlists his services to probe her husband’s suspicious death in a plane crash. With a solid background as a former employee of the National Transportation Safety Board, Adams had been accustomed to leading a relatively tranquil life, dealing with cases that were free of illegal or hazardous activities. However, his peaceful existence is upended, his life is imperiled when his house and office come under constant surveillance and unknown assailants attempt to take his life. To unearth the truth about the murder of Charles Rawlson, CEO of Amertex Electronics, Adams must outmaneuver his attackers and navigate the labyrinth of a complex conspiracy.
Guidance to Death is a finely crafted detective story replete with suspense and intrigue that keeps readers engrossed from beginning to end. Despite knowing the identity of the murderer from the outset, the brisk pace of the narrative maintains readers on the edge of their seats and second-guessing how the story will ultimately unfold. In addition, the story’s world-building is enriched by intricate details such as the layout of Mr. Rawlson’s mansion, Helen’s pride in the home security system, the enigmatic yet trustworthy bond between Frank and ‘the major,’ and the witty description of Corey as a bear sitting in a miniature sports car, infusing the dangers with an added air of realism.
Guidance to Death by Daniel V. Meier Jr. is a riveting detective novel that has readers in suspense throughout this thrilling story. While Saunders and his extremist cohorts appear to conform to a convenient archetype of villainy, lacking sufficient depth to explain their motivations, the story is captivating and refreshingly original. This fascinating novel is a highly entertaining read and comes strongly recommended to all.
