Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Xpresso Tours and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

At the end of the original Absolution, the Executor traveled back in Time and altered Reality. But by doing so, he set in motion a plan to end his existence and collapse Creation. Because of his actions, there is Absolution: REDUX…

In 1947, a gangster murders private investigator Raymond Adams. In 2011, he’s brought back to life for 24 hours to solve the supernatural murder of a Hollywood Adult film star.

When the son of a Pit Lord is murdered in Hollywood, the celestial beings in charge of the Realms ask Raymond Adams to figure who did it and find the victim’s missing soul. Without memories of his life, he accepts the case to gain eternal peace. But the job is daunting:

24 hours to nab a killer…
24 hours to find a missing soul…
24 hours to unravel the victim’s exotic private life…
24 hours to stop a plot to send the universe into chaos…

With only the help of a possessed cop and a medium, Adams must trek through a Hollywood underground filled with pornography, prostitutes, and sadists, along with supernatural monsters. But can he solve the case when his own haunting memories keep surfacing, telling him exactly what kind of man he was in life?

My Thoughts:

If you’re a person that likes to think you can go back, or even forward, in time why not check out a book that will do that for you.  You will want to pay attention to the date that’s mentioned at the Prologue.  It will help you understand some of the author’s word choices. 

Ray is telling the reader his story.  At times, it was like he was including the reader in the scene.  Some of what he might say isn’t very pleasant.  If you’re a fan of Hollywood, you may enjoy this mystery.  Maybe you like the reality crime shows, consider this supernatural.  I could see Kelly Siegler and her crew, from Cold Justice, becoming a part of this tale.   

I liked how the author kept Ray old school.  Shows how he seems to be a fish out of water which anyone would be in similar circumstances.  Having this story in parts may help you decide on stopping points.  Or you may find you don’t need to worry about that.  I found this to be a complete, and pleasant, surprise.  If I go back in time and think about all the books I’ve read, very few are written by male authors.  Gender doesn’t make any difference to me but it seems to have worked out that way.   

What interests me is if the story grabs my attention and M. Corsair did that for me.  I couldn’t get enough of Ray and the people that he met along his journey as well as those that helped him with the mystery.  And now I can add his name to my list of authors to watch out for.  Since this is only the first book of the Elohim Trilogy, I have at least two more chances in my future.
