Mike Driscoll is back in this sequel to "The Capo's Mistress'. This is a classic thriller of a novel that starts with LAPD retiree, Mike, recovering from the loss of his beautiful fiance. He is emotionally and physically stuck in Montana after Mary's death. The memories of their time together are everywhere and as Mike finds himself in trouble again with the Mafia it appears that he may be getting some help from Mary's ghost.
Mafia Target is a fast moving, page turner of a thriller that will have you laughing and shaking your head at the situations Mike finds himself caught up in again. I have feeling that we will be reading about Mike Driscoll again soon. Characters like him are never silent for long.

Take one part John Wayne, mix with a shot of Dirty Harry, add a dash of Sam Spade, and you've got Mike Driscoll, the ex-LAPD self depreciating-hero of Mafia Target. This fun and witty romp mixes a bit of the old west, paranormal intrigue and just enough sexual titillation to create a classic thriller bigger than the Montana Sky it's set under. Mafia Target, Richard Harris' sequel to his first novel, Capo's Mistress, follows Mike Driscoll in his quest to reconcile the betrayal and violent death of his fiancé, Mary Carter, the love of his life and the paramour of mafia kingpin, Al Rossi.
The perfect airplane novel or ultimate afternoon escape, Mafia Target reads as satisfying as a short glass of Jameson's, "smooth as a baby's arse", and leaves you longing for more.
Pick it up. You won't be disappointed

I didn't get why the streetwise excop Mike Driscoll was so loved up with Mary Carter as she came across as something of a ruthless tramp.
Apart from that observation readers should belt up, put their tongues inside their cheeks, and let the Author take you through more bumps and grinds than a strippers G string!

I’ve never read anything by Richard Harris before and I won’t be doing so in the future. The man can string a sentence together, however, everything else is just preposterous - from the police not being able to confirm the identity of a body in a helicopter crash, to ghosts drinking Champaign.

Shockingly bad book. Only bought as I thought it was by Robert Harris and deeply regretted the mistake. The plot is senseless, the dialogue turgid and the action preposterous. I hope the author is a good lawyer as he is not going to be giving up the day job anytime soon.

Boring rubbish with lots of page-filling asides of no consequence to the story - intentionally not describing it as a plot.
