BOOK REVIEW + Gift Card GIVE AWAY - A Cop's Necklace by Norm Meech

A Cop's Necklace

by Norm Meech 

GENRE:   Thriller/Mystery 

It has been nearly a year since the murder and kidnapping happened at the McPherson mansion. Everything has returned to being quiet and normal around the mansion until a package is delivered to Alex McNeil.

Inside the carefully wrapped package, Alex finds an expensive-looking antique necklace. There is also a note inside the package that reads, "Mr. McNeil, you have exhibited the ability of being a good investigator. Find out who stole the necklace, and you will find out who murdered her."

Investigation determines that the necklace belonged to missing Bisson City police sergeant Jennifer Thomson, who was presumed to have been kidnapped and murdered 10 years ago. Alex takes a leave of absence from the McPherson mansion, and is hired by the Bisson City police force on a short-term-employment contract. Alex teams up with his old police partner Stephanie Foster, and they renew their close friendship while investigating what happened to their missing colleague, Sergeant Thomson.


I fell to sleep as soon as my head hit my pillow. It was a deep sleep and at some point, the dream started again. Stephanie was helping Jennifer prepare for her promotional examination. They were studying police procedures, first they were in some type of library, then they were in someone’s office. A giant hand reaches out from the sky and grabs, Jennifer.

The hand is holding her firmly as she is screaming help me Alex, help me. The hand throws her into some type of room, and she is still screaming help me, help me. I ‘am staring into Jennifer’s eyes and I ‘am trying to run to help her, but I can't seem to get any traction, as door slams shut. I woke up in a sweat looking around the bedroom. The alarm clock said it was 2.10am. 

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Norm Meech and Goddess Fish Promotions. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

A Cop’s Necklace is about retired police officer Alex McNeil. Alex was a police officer for 30 years. After retirement he begins to work at an investment group as a security manager. When he finds a package at his door with a necklace and a note saying, “find who stole the necklace and you will find out who murdered her.” The necklace belonged to a policewoman who went missing 10 years ago. He comes out of retirement to track down the killer. He teams up with his ex-partner Stephanie to assist him. This case is personal to him. He still has dreams about this case.

This book is well written with characters who drew me in and didn’t let go until the story was over. The author does an excellent job of weaving together a complex story filled with twists and turns. The book ends with a huge shocker you won’t see coming. The descriptions were vivid, and I could see them in my mind’s eye. I look forward to reading more from this author!
