Ace Carroway and the Growling Death by Guy Worthey

Action and Adventure Book

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

4 Stars

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

World War I veteran and ace pilot Cecilia Carroway and her motley crew receive a new case at their detective agency. But the lovely actress walking in and reporting a stolen painting sets off only the tip of an iceberg—or the peak of a volcano?—of events in Ace Carroway and the Growling Death by author Guy Worthey.

This fourth installment of The Adventures of Ace Carroway series may stand alone if need be. But if you’ve not done so, I highly recommend starting at Book One of the series and following Ace and her ragtag band of faithful fellows from the beginning.

The whole bizarre, growling death business here swirls from pretty hilarious to on-the-edge-of-your-seat level, with characters who’ve become such a distinctive, memorable bunch to me. Boyish antics one minute, looming danger the next, high-speed or high-flying action punctuated throughout, and seriously, the restless volcano that shows up in the story is a character in its own right. Yikes!

And, as I’ve no shame in repeating, Ace is one bad, bad chick: fighting man and beast, quick strategy coursing through her brains, compassion coursing through her veins, and this time, a childhood nightmare coming back to challenge her mettle.

And the airship. Did you see the airship on the book cover? I’m already anticipating the next adventure…

Here’s my review of Book Six in the series, Ace Carroway and the Deadly Violin.
