    2. Not sure why I started this series with #2, but I plan to go back and read the first one also. This was a good book - I liked the characters and their interaction with each other. I rate this one 4.7 stars.

    3. Enjoyable readAfter a slow start, the details and action picked up. Sid and his assistant, Jazz LeMieux, make a fun couple of detectives to watch. It is nice to read a clean mystery!

    4. The Good, The Bad and The Murderous: A Sid Chance Thriller is the second book in the series that began with The Surest Poison. As such, while this novel could be read as a stand-alone, there are the occasional references to the earlier book in the series. It is recommended that you read that book prior to this one.Djuan Burden has been arrested for murder by the Metro Nashville Police Department. It isn’t the first time this has happened and once again his Granny does not think he did it. Whil [...]

    5. In his seventh novel [six have featured p.i. Greg McKenzie], Chester Campbell has brought back for only the second time Sid Chance. Chance is a former member of the Army Special Forces in Vietnam, and had been a National Parks ranger for nineteen years, as well as a small town police chief for ten. He has now set up shop as a private investigator in Nashville, Tennessee, occasionally but ably assisted by his good friend, “Jaz” LeMieux. At Jaz’ behest, and despite Sid’s skepticism, he agr [...]

    6. Djuan Burden, recently released from a prison term for murder, is in the wrong place at the wrong time. He finds himself arrested and again charged with murder. Sid Chance agrees to assist his friend Jaz LeMieux in proving Burden's innocence, although at the outset he believes him guilty. Within the first few chapters, we are sure good will prevail. And, it does. But, how many will die first? As the two friends delve into the investigation and get close to finding out the truth, others fall vict [...]

    7. This is Campbell’s seventh novel of crime fiction. There are a number of strings to the plot and a sub-plot or two as well. They are all nicely balanced, in that the main crime, murder and Medicare fraud remains at the center of attention. Sid Chance is a private investigator in Tennessee. His occasional assistant is a wealthy ex-cop improbably named Jaz LeMieux. LeMieux has inherited a successful retail travel business. In this story, she’s besieged by erroneous reports of having made damag [...]

    8. You can always rely on a Chester Campbell story. Believable characters who are not too-stupid-to-live (that is, they do not agree to meet the bad guy in a dark parking garage at 1 AM), and do not make a habit of intentionally alienating the local police force. Readers know they can expect a good plot with few if any expletives, and no excessive violence, and if there is any sex going on, he doesn't tell us.

    9. Great book, very easy to read with the story line keeping you fixated all the way through. Like the characters, the descriptive text and the fact that not everything is straight forward and predictable. I found the ending a bit rushed although again the writing was such that it was a suitable ending without need for lots of explanation or diverging from the previous style of writing.I enjoyed it immensely.

    10. Good people, with good friends wins always.This is the second book in this series and bought of them very good. Sid and Jazz gets into trouble but they believe in each other, love those characters. Hope in the future there will be more books about their adventurers.

    11. I've enjoyed both Sid Chance mysteries so much I'm going to read Chester Campbell's earlier mysteries. Really surpised he hasn't had more coverage locally.
