This fast-paced novel has several twists and turns. Those who know Birmingham and its surroundings will love the novel's setting, although if you've never been to Birmingham you'll still enjoy the book.
This is the second outing for Matt Proctor, but this works well as a stand alone novel. It's not necessary to read the first (Too Smart To Die) in order to enjoy this one.
It's a good read.
The author, and hence his chief detective character, had a great sense of what questions to ask next, and what clues to look into, which helped drive the forward momentum of the story, all without the insights feeling contrived or forced.
The investigation soon follows a dual track in Pakistan, adding a travel lit dimension to the story and stirring in yet more exotic locales, both pluses in my books.
The book’s weaknesses were few for fans of this genre. There are some Britishisms scattered throughout, in terms of vocabulary, but the book is very accessible to Americans as the language never gets particularly thick. There are some occasional typos, but the manuscript is still edited well within the professional range.
Overall, highly recommended.
The main character Matt Proctor is a cop and that day was a good day for him at the races, after a string of bad luck, he had just finally won but as he goes to collect his winnings, two masked hit-men run into the betting shop and shoots the bookmaker at close range. Proctor investigates this cold blooded murder and soon finds himself up to his neck in corruption and dangerous escapades within the sports world, and that is just the beginning....
Action packed throughout that makes for a thrilling ride into the underbelly of a well thought out plot. An entertaining and thrilling read to add to your kindle library, thoroughly entertaining.
