Murder On Olympus

Murder on Olympus (Plato Jones #1) 
 4 of 5 stars false 
At first glance, the Gods of Olympus are as different from one another as salt is from sugar. Despite their bickering, they share a universal bond, a thread of commonality that unites them.
They’re all jerks.
After a stint with the Olympic Bureau of Investigation, Plato Jones is through with the Gods and their political games. Against his protests, he's drawn into a murder investigation, where the murderer's targets are the Gods themselves.
Plato has cracked some tough cases: exposing cheating spouses, capturing treasonous heretics, hunting three-headed dogs. But this time he’s in over his head. How can he solve a crime that’s impossible to commit? And what chance does Plato—a mere mortal—have against something powerful enough to kill a God?  


****This book was part of the blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Plato Jones used to work for the Olympic Bureau of Investigation now he is a private investigator with his own firm that is close to shutting down. When he is asked to help find out who is killing Zeus and Heras children he initially says no, he has no love for the Gods but eventually he gives in . Plato has to deal with his ex-wife who wants him to want her back, people trying to kill him, Aries as his partner and Hermes as his boss. The main character in this book was a snarky self deprecating man named Plato, it  was nice to get a male lead protagonist in the sea of females lately it was a breath of fresh air. This book did start out a little slow, building up the world and background stuff once that was out of the way the book really took off. The characters were interesting, the Gods were relatable and somewhat mortal while still being mysterious and larger than life. This book was a murder mystery with a mythological twist, the author did a good job of not having the paranormal aspect of the book overpower the story. This book was well written with the author giving small clues to the mystery that keep it moving forward without giving to much away or leaving you frustrated. Murder on Olympus is a good start to a new series and I am interested in seeing more from this author and the series.
