First, the good... from the very first page, I could tell that this was going to be a well-written story. And on the whole, I wasn't disappointed - excellent prose, decent plot development, good characterisation, an interesting tale - everything I look for in a good book.
The downside is that I was slightly confused about some elements of the storyline, and I felt that there were unexplained characters, relationships and events that might have made more sense had there been more background to put things into context. All through the book I was expecting these issues to be brought out in a satisfying ending but on the contrary, I thought the ending to be extremely rushed. With a bit of extra work (and a good editor - see next paragraph) this could easily have been a five-star read.
Annoyingly, and puzzlingly, I did notice a few (though not an awful lot) of spelling mistakes (e.g. 'waived' for 'waved', and 'peaked' for 'peeked' - repeatedly - and even for 'piqued') which I found strange given the author's facility with words. It was this, rather than the book's lesser failings, that marked it as self-published work.
Overall I did enjoy the book and I would recommend it to fans of legal fiction although I'm glad I didn't pay much for it. I have picked up the next book - No Time To Die - and I am looking forward to reading it.
Chock full of red herrings, this is the story of the little guy up against The Man. Luckily he has an inexhaustible wad of cash in his safety deposit box, which lets him charter private jets, and a dope-addled sidekick for added laughs when they make the movie. So why does his GF have to bump off drug dealers to make ends meet? Or did she? Or didn't she? Or what was the question again?
The book is deliberately convoluted, the denouement clever if not entirely credible, and the characters interesting if almost entirely incredible.
Having said that, the story was interesting and the characters were amusing and well rounded. The ending did seem a bit of a rush but then I think that is often the only way to achieve a climax in a thriller such as this.
Despite the typos and errors, I did find it hard to put down and was very engrossed in the story - will definitely give the next one in the series a go. I see there are only two Michael Collins books - I trust there will be more.
If you like Joseph Finder or Mark Gimenez then these are stories in a simlar vein.
What really happened- a fabulous plot that involves the FBI, top lawsuits, numerical equations and a priest. It twists and turns and you are kept guessing right until the bitter end.
Definitely worth a read- I will certainly be reading more by this author 👍
