George Wier's "The Last Call" is the first book in a great new series. Bill Travis is an investment counselor; the go to guy when you have a little extra money that you need to invest but invest in a way that is legal but hidden from Uncle Sam's extended hands. On a Monday morning he meets his newest client Julie. She needs his help to retrieve some money from a very bad man. Bill agrees to help this damsel in distress and by agreeing, he finds himself on one thrilling but deadly ride of the week. Who would have thought managing money could be so exciting?

This is the beginning of a thrilling and exciting new series. If you want one of those books that keep you up late at night turning pages than this is the series for you. Pick up your copy today and you won't be disappointed...you just might miss a little sleep though.

The title suggests that this is going to be part of a series of books about Bill Travis, it will be interesting to see how that develops given that it is an unusual premise. The protagonist is neither a police officer nor a private detective, instead he is an investment counsellor, more used to finding the best places for people to place any extra cash they may have at their disposal. When he gets into his office on a quiet Monday morning his partner has requested that Bill take his first appointment of the morning. Monday is soon anything but quiet.
Drawn into a life on the run from desperate, and slightly incompetent would be hitmen, he finds life shrinks down to the need to survive with a woman who has upset someone she REALLY shouldn't have upset in tow. Fortunately Bill has the right contacts, who also have the right contacts which make his life a little easier, which is just as well, because the woman, Julie, isn't making life any easier. That is mostly because of what she has done, but also because of the things she isn't telling them.
This is a fast paced story of survival of the smartest rather than of the fittest. Despite the odds being stacked against them, the motley crew which have come together to try to extract Julie alive from the situation she has got herself into, find time to show compassion where it is needed and sort out other people's troubles. Not all of them are going to survive, but who will and who won't?
I actually found this book quite fun and enjoyed reading it. I will be intrigued to see what Bill Travis gets caught up in next.

I give this 3.5 stars as not quite worth 4. Try and get past the prologue of an 80 year old skeleton in a "cellar" (which
was explained eventually) and the first chapter (unnecessary), where Bill races his car in traffic against a pretty female.

I almost didn't bother after that, but glad I did. The female, Julie, later turns up at Bill's office to ask for help.
I never did understand exactly what Bill did about people's money problems as he always protested it wasn't "money laundering".

Anyway, Julie has stolen 2 million dollars from a mafia-type Texan. She and Bill fast become lovers and go on the run
together from the criminal's henchmen. As the man wanted his money back, I couldn't understand why his men kept trying to
kill Julie - hence not 4 stars.

A gun toting friend agrees to help Bill and Julie and from then on the action and pace increase. However, Bill knows that
Julie is holding a lot of information back - which always annoys me - though I suppose it makes the story! So can he trust her?

The skeleton in the prologue is traced back to an 80 year old mystery, and the end of the book is explosive.
I would probably read this book again some time, and the next in the series. There were no graphic sex scenes and not much
bad language.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012The Last Call by George Wier

The Last Call, book one in the Bill Travis Mystery series is an interesting take on the classic hardboiled detective action tale. Author George Wier has created a cast of characters who immediately draw you in, and from page one you care about their problems.

The hero, investment-advisor Bill Travis, is having a mid-life crisis. We never really find out exactly what area of investment consulting Bill works in, other than it is for extremely sensitive clients who need help with investing large amounts of cash and property just short of money laundering; keeping good people out of bad trouble. In the course of his work he's made many friends, a lot of of whom owe Bill some rather large favors.

On the day this tale begins, we find Bill in in traffic on his way to the office. As he is negotiating the rush-hour traffic, he finds himself playing tag with an attractive blonde. She wins. cutting him off and making a fine start to his Monday.

Lo and behold, his first appointment of the day is the blonde from the traffic-jam; her name is Julie Simmons and she is in trouble. She has crossed a bad man, a north-Texas liquor baron, named Archie Carpin and has taken a VERY large sum of money from him and hidden it. She turns to Bill for help; he tells her he doesn't deal with stolen money. Still, he finds himself involved both physically and emotionally and the next thing he knows, he is trying to help her get her mess straightened out.

Bill turns to Hank, an old client and a friend who has a passing love of explosives. Hank has a friend, Dock (with a k) who also gets involved.
