This is Lively,
This review is from: This is Life (A Jack Palms Novel) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Actor Jack Palms had a hit movie, then he hit the bottle, hit the clubs, hit the drugs and hit rock bottom. On his way back up he finds himself as a sort of private investigator (I'm sure more of the justification for this strange state of affairs is covered in the previous book) looking into corruption that goes into the highest reaches of San Francisco's public servants.
Having set up the premise, author Seth Harwood treats us to car chases, gun battles, fights, friendship, betrayal and murder - all written in the present tense - which, at first, made the novel difficult for me to get into. I'm glad I persevered as 'This is Life' is an enjoyable, pacey, if pretty unbelievable, action thriller, though I'm unsure whether I'd go out of my way to read future instalments.
