Murder on the Naval Base [Book Review]

I had the privilege of  personally reviewing this book for the author himself.  So, here is my review and enjoy!


Title:  Murder on the Naval Base

Author: Behcet Kaya

Synopsis: “Beginning with a blurry account of a cold-blooded shooting of a couple, singled out while having dinner at an Officer’s Club, the prime suspect is apprehended hours later while apparently attempting to flee the state. With over a dozen eye-witnesses collaborating the incident, little was left in the puzzle for the military investigators to piece together; especially once it was determined the two victims were in fact the perpetrator’s wife and the man she was having an on-going affair with. After the shocking beginning of the novel, the reader in taken on a journey throughout the life and career of the characters while interlacing the technical jargon and vernacular of naval flight training and the nuances of the military lifestyle. Combined with a steamy undercurrent of lust, love, sexual fulfillment, jealousy and primordial desires of the cast of characters, the human condition of married life versus the structure and demands of military careers are juxtaposed against the strength and will of personal upbringing and ethical behavior.”

 My Review:

Behcet Kaya’s Murder on the Naval Base is a suspenseful and entertaining murder-mystery adventure.  Readers instantly become entrapped as protagonist, U.S. Navy Lieutenant Anderson Garrett Belguzar’s life turns upside down when he is charged with the murder of his wife and former best friend.  Comprised of flashbacks, Navy life, and court room drama, readers meet a variety of characters, all intertwined to one another through the tragedy of murder.

Behcet Kaya paints a vivid picture with each descriptive sentence, while the short but action-packed chapters urge you to continue reading.  After the story has been developed in Part 1, the much anticipated climax in Part 2 provides an unsuspecting twist that will keep you reading until the very end.

A story of betrayal, romance, and who-done-it mystery, Behcet Kaya has created an exciting read throughout.  Perfect for mystery lovers, or for those just looking for an easy but enthralling read, Murder on the Naval Base is highly recommended.

  1. Congratulations on be asked to review this. I live near a naval base so it caught my eye. There aren’t many scandals there, but when there are, it’s big news. They’re very disciplined people.

  2. Enjoyable read from start to finish!!
