Nothing Happens All the Time: Homicides Truly Know How to Interrupt a Good Meal! by Edmund Mahon is a mystery with a detective named Eli Mitchell as the protagonist. Nothing Happens All the Time starts off with a lot of action as we, the readers, come across the scene of a murder at a convenience store and also get our first introduction to the detective. The story then moves onto the other-worldly forces and energies, and combines that with the solving of a murder mystery. However, this isn’t your typical mystery as the story moves between the past and future and combines some elements of the sci-fi and supernatural genres. However, in the end Nothing Happens All the Time is about Eli Mitchell as he takes us on a whirlwind tour to get to the bottom of the mystery before it is too late.
Nothing Happens All the Time: Homicides Truly Know How to Interrupt a Good Meal! by Edmund Mahon is a gripping novel written in a fast-paced manner that almost reminds me of a thriller. I found the sci-fi and other-worldly elements to be a bit confusing at times, but overall the story progresses at a sequential pace and the task of solving the homicide case itself was well presented. The central character of detective Mitchell is well drawn, and so is his team of officers and others. Overall, this is a novel I would recommend to mystery fans who also enjoy a touch of sci-fi or fantasy.
