A stockbroker inadvertently gets involved with a drugs cartel who want to use him to recover their stolen money, then kill him and anyone else associated with him to leave no loose ends. This is one of those stories where our intrepid hero, with no policing or detective knowledge is thrown in at the deep end and has to attempt to sort things out himself. He battles against mounting odds.
The characters are well drawn, you really root for the goodies and the baddies emit a believable air of ruthlessness and menace, sometimes under a veneer of respectability. There's a sub-plot of a black widow who marries wealthy old men at death's door to be addressed too.
It works! The story is tight and moves along at a pace that keeps you interested and, to use a well worn cliché, you've got a page turner on (in) your hands.
If you like thrillers, there's more than enough here to keep your attention for the duration of the book. Is there a down side? One reviewer says he feels that the story is a little far fetched. I'm not sure I agree really. To write about mundane, every day stuff is to guarantee nobody reads your book. Because what happens isn't an every day occurrence doesn't make things unbelievable. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
