The third in the "Joe Geraghty" series finds Joe all at sea and unsure where his life is going - when his brother ends up in trouble though his immediate path is clear. Find the truth. Make things right.
This series has been steadily getting better and better and hey it was terrific in the first place. I particularly loved the use of past and present timelines in this outing - Buried secrets always make for a great reading experience and Joe is going to discover plenty. Cleverly intertwined, the two tales slowly come together to form the whole - with many surprises along the way.
The sense of place is fantastic..I have never visited Hull but after reading this and the previous novels I really feel like I have - and thats a talent to be sure. The backdrop adds great depth to the story and gets you involved.
As I've said before, the "private detective" in fiction is rarely used as successfully as your standard "DI with a past" but Mr Quantrill, like John Connolly and Robert Crais before him has managed to write a character you can get behind. And he's British - whats not to love?
I would recommend these novels to anyone with a love of crime fiction. Perhaps slightly overlooked in the genre, that should be rectified. Start with "Broken Dreams" and take it from there.....
My thanks to the author for the copy of this book for review.
