Around noon on an average summer day in Sacramento, an ambulance rolls up to the State Capitol, intent on responding to an emergency call from inside the building. Rushing in, they arrive at the Department of Revenue Supervisor's Office to find the man denying the need for emergency care. Paramedics convince him to allow them to check out his pacemaker. They are soon Around noon on an average summer day in Sacramento, an ambulance rolls up to the State Capitol, intent on responding to an emergency call from inside the building. Rushing in, they arrive at the Department of Revenue Supervisor's Office to find the man denying the need for emergency care. Paramedics convince him to allow them to check out his pacemaker. They are soon reading his tracing and declare that they need to convert his heart to a normal rhythm. They pull out the defibrillator paddles to try and aid his heart with a single jolt of electric current, but it doesn't work and minutes later he lies dead in his office. Just another heart attack on the job .… or is it? Book 5 in the Jill Quint, MD, Forensic Pathologist series, finds Dr. Quint called in by the family to perform an autopsy on Manuel Valencia, the recently dead man. He was loved by his large extended family, admired by co-workers, and he had just purchased new hiking boots for an upcoming vigorous hike in Yosemite. Both the local coroner and Jill agree, it's a homicide and they begin to look at the large list of people who hate to pay taxes. They have the fake paramedics on camera, how hard could it be to find the killers?

    A Taxing Death (Jill Quint, MD, Forensic Pathologist Series Book 5) by Alec Peche. This was free on amazon.com. Some time ago I started book 1 in this series and only got a couple of chapters into the book and shelved it "Did Not Finish". I liked the story line and the characters were interesting, however the writing style was all about describing the events rather than taking the readers along as the events unfold. At that time I chalked it up to maybe the writer is new and with time the writing A Taxing Death (Jill Quint, MD, Forensic Pathologist Series Book 5) by Alec Peche. This was free on amazon.com. Some time ago I started book 1 in this series and only got a couple of chapters into the book and shelved it "Did Not Finish". I liked the story line and the characters were interesting, however the writing style was all about describing the events rather than taking the readers along as the events unfold. At that time I chalked it up to maybe the writer is new and with time the writing style will evolve. When I saw this book 5 in the series free on amazon, i clicked on it and started reading. Again the story line is interesting and there is an eclectic mix of characters, but once again the writing style is so removed from the action that this reader is not even remotely engaged with the story and as such, I shelved this under "Did Not Finish". I am about one third into the story and such is my frustration with this book that I do not care how it ends. It is almost as this is written as a school project, at best it is an outline of a book. Make sure you go to amazon.com and read the free sample before you buy these books. 1 and half star.

    Wonderful Five books in and still just as amazing as the first. I find it so hard to put down the story when I have to go cook, clean and so many other things that we have to take care of. Love all the characters,but especially Jill and Nathan, each bring so much to each mystery with Jill as the anchor point for everyone else.

    The book would have been a lot shorter if not for all the discussions about computer searches. The premise of the story was interesting. But it was off-putting when most of the people involved used the term, "Sounds like a plan," whether criminals or crime-solvers.

    "A Taxing Death" by Alec Peche is an amazing book. It is the fifth book featuring Dr. Jill Quint and showcases a very intricate and original story line. This is a great stand alone story that does not require the reader to have read the earlier books in the series. The characters are interesting and well defined. The only suggestion I might make to the author is the dialogue between some of the main characters at time seemed to be a bit stiff and stilted. Definitely not a major drawback to the "A Taxing Death" by Alec Peche is an amazing book. It is the fifth book featuring Dr. Jill Quint and showcases a very intricate and original story line.

As a winner of this book in the goodreads first read giveaway, I am very happy to have been introduced to another exciting author.

    This was excellent, and now I'm really sad as there isn't a next book yet! This one was about some serial killers who targeted employees of California's Revenue department. Method of murder was intriguing, and how they avoided capture or identification for so long was kind of scary... It just goes to show that natural born terrorists are just as (or maybe even more) frightening as terrorists from anywhere else. An excellent read that kept me thinking all night long...
