Lunar by Martin Tracey - Book Tour & Review

Book Blurb

Amidst ancient stories of prowling werewolves, the Lunar Society would meet under the light of a full moon to change the face of industry and enlightenment forever. When the discovery of a human skeleton at one of their old haunts coincides with the disappearance of a talented female prodigy, Private investigator Judd Stone is certain that the two are connected.

Travelling as far afield as Prague and as close as his native city of Birmingham, Judd includes past life regressions in an attempt to unlock the explosive age-old mystery and rescue the missing girl.

With a cloud descending over the treasured legacy of the Lunar Society, Judd quickly finds himself embroiled in a shockingly dark underworld of organised crime. So dark in fact he will need a lot more than the light of a full moon to escape with his life.

My Review
Lunar is book three in the Judd Stone series, but it can be read as a standalone. However, after reading this one, I'd be game to go back and read the others to get a better feel for the type of person Judd is.
This book starts off with the discovery of a skeleton found sealed behind a wall in a building. This discovery sets off the rest of the story, and boy does it get crazy. There are a few different things that happen throughout, including Judd, his wife, and his two friends being shot, and it all ties together, although getting to why/how of it all is a bit wild. 
Judd is approached by a young woman named Vina. Vina's cousin is missing. But not only that, Vina has "visions" of her past life, and she believes the discovered skeleton is her. From the past. Judd, intrigued and curious, takes the case. But soon, he'll come to realize that agreeing to look into things was a big mistake. 
I don't want to spoil anything, but just know there are some fascinating things going on within these pages. The FIGHT group, especially, is fun, and how things play out with them is surprising and kind of awesome. I really enjoyed their connection, if you will.
I also thought Judd was a relatively likable guy, although he did some stupid stuff a few times (like cheating on his wife 😞). He's not a bad guy, though. Just dumb. 
After reading Lunar, I do find myself intrigued by the Lunar Society and all that they did. I've never been a huge history buff, but there's something about them that fascinated me and made me want to research them a bit more. 
Overall, if you're looking for a gripping, suspenseful, and slightly strange mystery/thriller novel, definitely check out Lunar. 
4 stars from me!

Martin Tracey is an author who likes to push the boundaries of reality. Even when injecting elements of the supernatural, the terror that grips you is very real. Not necessarily a genre specific author, psychological thrills are a plenty.
He has a passion for The Beatles & Wolverhampton Wanderers FC. Both music and football/soccer often find their way into his stories.
Martin lives in Birmingham, UK and is married with 2 daughters.
