Product Description

Product Description

A gallery heist isn't what it seems, and pretty soon, Quinn is running out of people to trust. The biggest mobster in town, a sweetheart named "Vin The Shin," is calling him out; a steady string of lowlifes want his head, and the local police think he's hiding something. But hey, when trouble comes knocking? That's when Quinn Checks In.

"My first thought after reading L. H. Thomson's Quinn Checks In was I hope he doesn't check out. This is the first in a promised series, and I'm looking forward to the next one." - JM Orenduff, author of The Pot Thief series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story with a loveable main character. 23 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Liam Quinn is an insurance claim investigator. He investigates an art gallery robbery to determine the validity of the insurance claim. However, he very quickly establishes that the robbery is not quite what it seems and so begins the thrills, chases, fights, murder and lots of action for Liam.

As well as having a really cool name, Liam Quinn is also a really cool character. He is a loveable rogue, a bad boy turned good.

The author introduces Liam's home life and the relationships he has with his family. A brother who cannot forgive Liam's past and an amusing relationship with his mother that made me smile, the kind of relationship that many of us could relate to.

There is also the makings of a love story in there. Liam is quite keen on the lovely Nora, his boss's daughter but doesn't quite have the nerve to take it further as much as he would like to....will they ever get together?!

L.H. Thomson is a very good author. He has a style of writing that makes the reader want to keep reading.

Quinn Checks In is an action packed adventure with great characters, a loveable Irish family and some shady gangsters. The story lines for the character are endless. I could see Liam Quinn and his adventures easily being made into a blockbuster movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to the next installment of Quinn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diverting and entertaining 15 April 2014
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the fact that this is a detective story from another angle. As an insurance investigator, Quinn doesn't have the same resources or powers that the police have, but he is still able to get to the truth of a situation faster than they can. He is fortunate that his father is a retired policeman and his brother is still on the force in that dropping their names gets him further at times than his own name alone would do. The fact that his brother considers him a stain on the family name and prefers not to speak to him, is no barrier to Quinn's name dropping. His own criminal past is little hindrance to his investigative abilities as he uses the things he has learned and the contacts he has made to best advantage in his post-jail, going straight world. It seems that Quinn has always been a helpful kind of man and a lot of people seem to owe him favours which he doesn't hesitate to call in to help him resolve this case. Being an ex-boxer and keeping himself pretty fit is also a huge advantage to him when the bad guys take exception to his investigations, but will it be enough, as having a criminal record means that he isn't allowed to carry a gun and can't afford to break the law, that is not a regulation which the people chasing him are too worried about adhering to.
Basically Quinn is a nice guy who has made mistakes in the past which he is determined not to repeat. He also has a big down on himself, and will do a favour for anyone but himself. There are a number of ladies who would be glad to get to know him better, but he thinks they deserve more than him. I do hope that there is at least one who is not so easily put off.

This book isn't high octane, even though there are a few car chases, nor is it an unputdownable read, but it is diverting and entertaining and I enjoyed it and would recommend it. I will also look out for further books in the series and am sure that I will also enjoy reading them.

4.0 out of 5 stars First in a great series 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this on the strength of one reviewer comparing it to Robert B Parker. The writing style isn't quite up there with Parker but the hero is likeable enough, the mystery compelling without being taxing, and the action believable.
