Death Saint

Updated: May 21

Death Saint by Rich Curtin

Reviewed by L. Bennett

Deputy Sheriff Manny Rivera listens to a dying woman’s story about a 15-year old murder. For the Grand County, Utah sheriff’s office it is an unsolved case. Rivera investigates and finds evidence he believes will identify the killer but he has to go to a small New Mexican village called Santa Elena to find the connections. What he discovers while there connects in ways that he couldn’t possibly foresee. He also finds out something about himself.

Death Saint is another in author Rich Curtin’s series featuring Manny Rivera, a likable law enforcement officer with a dog, guppies, and a penchant for digging deeply into criminal cases. I found the story interesting and the characters appealing. The author did a nice job setting the stage for Manny’s investigations and his thoughtful trip back to Moab. I like the book.
