Anyone who likes a good PI book, in the style of the 50's authors will not be disappointed. I do have to add though that there is a strong adult theme in this book with a lot of adult content. This is not usually something I would like in a book but it does fit well in this one due to the nature of the storyline. I would highly recommended this book but it is not for the easily offended.
by SIMON SWIFT
Reading one of Simon Swifts' novels is a bit like meeting up with an old friend. Errol Black is one of my favourite fictional characters, and this time he is down in Casablanca solving yet another case.
Explosive openings are becoming a trade mark of Simon Swift and the Casablanca Case is no exception.
Two teenagers are copulating in sand dunes on a beach lost in their own needs. A little way off men are being assassinated with silencer fitted .45's where they sleep.
As we move on in the story Errol is in the morgue about to take a look at the body of his oldest friend Hermeez Wentz. His courage comes from smoking several lungful's of a `lucky' before he pulls back the sheet.
The death is filed under a burglary gone wrong, but Errol knows better than that and is determined to prove otherwise with or without the help of the local Police....
If you love a real good crime mystery you will love The Casablanca Case, the sequel to Black Shadows. There are several murders, a very good sprinkling of eroticism in the storyline and the appearance of a past love interest which also heats up the pages.
This is the second novel I've read in the series convinced I had sussed out the outcome only to be outwitted once again by the superb writing of Simon Swift.
If you love Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammet and the like, you will love The Casablanca Case.
For me, both Black Shadows and The Casablanca Case have the potential of becoming blockbuster films. Liquid gold seems to just drip from every page written by Simon Swift.
The one thing I felt about this book was that the true Simon Swift was writing it, his own style coming through even though the theme and the essence was old-style detective - and the book was better for this. Well done, Simon.
We get to know a little bit more about Errol in between the chasing of the bad guys. The end took me completely by surprise. A great read. Looking forward to the next!!
"The Casablanca Case" is no exception. This is a detective drama with a modern twist and fully deserves to be made into a movie or TV series - Erroll Black could be the next "Michael Weston"!
I really enjoyed reading this and think it deserves to be a winner.
