As if confirmation were needed, Faraday is no more. Any glimmer that he might just pull off a miracle escape from the clutches of pills and booze is doused in the first few pages of `Happy Days'. So, where to now?
Fortunately, DS Suttle is on form and the old reprobate ex-DC Paul Winter, brings his own and easily recognizable style to this book. Suttle has always been in play throughout the books, his promotion earned under the tutorship of both Winter and Faraday so now he takes centre stage, on the one side with Winter on the other, each wanting the same end result, the incarceration of Mackenzie.
Although this book feels at times as though all the loose ends are being sorted in readiness for the final closure, the story of Bazza's attempts at securing en election victory for his own, new Party is very well portrayed. Mackenzie's delusions of grandeur know no bounds, so it will come as no surprise to regulars that we're in for a bumpy read.
This is not the best of the 12 books but only because many of the previous stories were excellent; it would be very hard to maintain an improvement each time. This one conveys the menace of Bazza, the risks each side takes to achieve their end results and an ending which brings closure to this compelling series.Read more ›
As this is the last book in the series, we expect some kind of resolution. Is Mackenzie now really untouchable? Can the Machiavellian Kinder turn Mackenzie from local criminal into a politician? Will the financial pressures of the recession finally hit home? And what of Winter- will he really be Mackenzie's undoing?
I won't give the plot and the ending away, but say that even after 11 previous books, this one still has great atmosphere, bold characters, excellent pace and intricate plotting with twists and turns that just keep coming - some very left field and completely unexpected as well as behaviour that occasionally seems out of character. It's a really good read and I found myself turning the pages more and more quickly to get to the reckoning. At one point I almost screamed "No - why did you do that? He's not that stupid!" When I finished and put the book down, it did leave me wondering what justice really is - I say no more.
Although Faraday and Winter are now off the scene, there is good news for Hurley fans. Jimmy Suttle is moving to the West Country for a fresh start in a new series of books - Western Approaches, here we come!!
Happy Days is very much a sequel to Borrowed Light and as a standalone if I hadn't read that book I'd find this one disappointing and probably a bit confusing,very much "the end of a series" with plotlines concluded and characters moving on.
Without spoiling the enjoyment of anyone who has yet to read the preceding books in this series,not least Borrowed Light,I did find that the beginning of Happy Days dragged a bit and added very little to the book as a whole.To my mind at least a short Epilogue at the end of Borrowed Light covering the same ground would have made Happy Days a far better read as a standalone and despite being a hardcore fan of this series I found myself muttering,"get on with it" as the pages dragged on.
Having said that once the action eventually picked up it's vintage Hurley and as ever we're never quite sure of the motivations and loyalties of Paul Winter or his strange choice of bedfellow Misty.The complex relationships between each other and other players in the plot keep things nicely on the boil and who trusts who,who is deceiving who and what motives they have are never entirely clear,and indeed change with circumstances as the tale unfolds.It's a tale of redemption,choices and much,much more.Read more ›
