...a cracking mixture of angst, anger, and regrets for a lost relationship compose the main character, Pete Brandt, a jaded sometime investigative journalist who carries the physical and emotional marks of a life that could have been better lived... when his ex-wife is murdered, a message from a former pal brings him back to clear up her personal effects... the good and bad guys loom large across the pages, and it's a tease trying to solve who's at the nub of all the criminality... the dialogue is entertainingly droll... throw in a web of politics, cops and ex-cops operating on and over the edge of legality and Hill serves up a great crime story... the tension is well-handled... the denouement is particularly satisfying... enjoyable, excellently crafted novel..well done, Mister Hill...

I was given this book by the author for review and enjoyed it.

Within the darkened world we follow Peter Brandt, already weary of the human condition, who must investigate his ex-wife's death, he the only one its seems that takes it seriously.

I don't give spoilers so will say that this story is fast-paced, gritty (if somewhat despondent about the lives we lead and the powers that take advantage) and well written.

Worth reading if you enjoy crime novels with extra dimension.

This book is a page turner. It has everything a good thriller needs: a suspenseful plot, interesting characters, actions, twists, emotional events and an unpredictable ending. The book is well written and well-structured. I read it over a period of three evenings and found it hard to put it aside.

It starts with the murder of a woman in mysterious circumstances. The twists and challenges which the dead woman’s ex-husband encounters whilst unraveling what had happened kept me turning the pages. At times the story is fast-paced, at times it is told in a slightly more reflective tone, which is a good mix. To come back to the ending, I had my suspicions, and yet, the way the ending unfolded was brilliantly plotted and written.

This is a novel I highly recommend. Readers who love crime novels and thrillers will not be disappointed.
