A Review of Notice of Death (The Ryxin Trilogy Book 3)

By Miss H. on 29 Jan. 2017
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having enjoyed the first two books in this
series, I was looking forward to reading the
final book of the "Ryxin trilogy" and I was
not disappointed. The Ryxins are a humanoid
alien species who fled their dying planet to
find sanctuary on earth. However this sanctuary
came with the cost of them being regarded as
secondary citizens who are allowed to work in
only the most menial jobs and with no access
to social care or benefits. Furthermore, the
human police have no interest in Ryxin crimes
if the acts do not involve humans. Thus any
murders of Ryxins are given only a cursory
investigation. In this book the private investigator
Curtis McCoy (a half-blood Ryxin) and his
assistant Janux Lennan are hired by the relative
of a Ryxin woman whose death the human police
have deemed accidental. The investigation
uncovers a series of seemingly unrelated
Ryxin deaths and the plot twists and turns,
throwing out a few red herrings on the way.
