Review

Dark humor, pathos, and gritty action. Matt Hilton, author, "Slash and Burn""

"Stark, violent prose perfectly suits this hard-edged tale of cops in conflict."--Publishers Weekly, 11/9/2015

About the Author

Col Bury is the former Crime Editor of webzine, Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers, for which he was voted 'Online Fiction Editor of the Year' in a 2010 readers' poll. His short stories have gained interest from agents and have won online competitions. His fiction has featured in many anthologies, most notably, THE MAMMOTH BOOKS OF BEST BRITISH CRIME 9, 10 & 11. He is the author of two popular short stories collections, MANCHESTER 6 and THE COPS OF MANCHESTER, and his debut novel, MY KIND OF JUSTICE is published by Caffeine Nights Publishing. The flawed and unusual Detective Inspector, Jack Striker, will again feature in the sequel, which Col is currently working on, as well as a separate new crime novel series. Col has been developing the craft of writing, spasmodically, for twenty-five years and readers have commented that with Col having worked with violent offenders for many years, it adds authenticity to his fiction. Col has had over 15 years service with the Manchester Police Force.Col lives with his wife and two children in Manchester, UK, where he reads a lot, enjoys action movies, shoots pool and watches his beloved Manchester City FC.Find him on Twitter https://twitter.com/ColBurywriterFacebook @ https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Manchester-Series-by-Col-Bury/236941263032722Website: http://colburysnewcrimefiction.blogspot.co.uk/

As a long time reader of True Crime stories, I often find Crime Fiction books even more far fetched than an episode of The Bill. My Kind of Justice delivers a believable storyline mixing fictional towns with real life places, giving it that genuine feel. It's punchy with Bury flicking between plots and characters on a regular basis. I always felt that I could visualise what was going on as if it was made into a motion picture due to the writing style. The book kept me hooked with every twist and turn. I couldn't put it down and after completing it poolside, I closed the cover not aware of my new shade of lobster.

Having seen the title as "book 1", I'm hoping that DI Jack Striker soon returns with another case to keep me entertained.

This is the first book in a planned series featuring DI Jack Striker, who has just been promoted to the rank of Detective Inspector, and his Major Incident Team. The book is set in Manchester and it was refreshing to read a book that is set in the North of England as most books seem to be set in the south of the country. Within his MIT, there appears to be a limited inner circle of people that Striker truly trusts.
This story takes place in two separate periods of time. The prologue describes an incident that took place in the past but which still has a bearing on the present for certain individuals. The main body of the story takes place in present day, which we discover is 16 years after the prologue.
Initially Striker's first case appears to be relatively straightforward and it seems to be a case of gang versus gang violence & murder. However it soon becomes apparent that there is more to the case than meets the eye. The story builds & builds until matters come to a head in a dramatic climax.
DI Jack Striker appears to be a complex character. He has a damaging & haunting past which starts to make its presence felt as the story moves on. As previously stated there is only a limited circle of people that he truly trusts and who he considers to be friends. At the same time Striker also has his enemies, who are waiting to pounce on his mistakes, exploit his past to their own advantage and get one over on him- in effect trying to destroy him.
Initially I found it hard to warm to Striker but having found out his full history I began to warm to him and realised that by joining the police , he is trying to atone for his past and give something back so to speak. In fact he is dedicated to his job, often at the expense of his personal life.
This book is really well written.

My Kind Of Justice is certainly one action packed crime fiction book!

From the start I could tell it was going to be good and I certainly was not disappointed.

DI Jack Striker is a very interesting character. Growing up in a not so nice area of Manchester he has a past that he would rather be kept hidden, especially because of his career. Jack is a likeable character who like most crime book detectives has issues of his own to deal with.

Col Bury has created a storyline that is very believable and has the readers attention from start to finish. We certainly learn quite a bit about Jack and his background in this book which is great and I think it's a brilliant starting point for an on going crime series.

If you like your crime fiction to be gritty, fast paced and action packed this is certainly the book for you!

My Review:
I could not wait to get my hands on a copy of this book when it was published after hearing such great things. And being a debut novel for the author it fell nicely into my #NewAuthorForMe July challenge. After reading this book I can see that this author is definitely one I will be following closely.

This is not your typical vigilante thriller. The plot is well thought out mixing past mistakes with the future repercusions. It left me wondering when or if DI Jack Strikers secret would come out and what the fall-out of that may be.

What I enjoyed about this story was the unexpected twists and turns which made my stomach flip at times. I was left wondering whether or not the past would catch up to DI Striker, whether his friends and colleagues would turn on him, who would end up dead next…too many to mention but all gripping and full of suspense!

The characters in this book were also well thought out. Each distinctive in their own right…you knew who you liked and who you loathed right away. I am in no doubt that this will be a great series of books and look forward to how the characters develop in future books….particularly Bardsley and Davidson as I suspect there to be more to them then what was revealed in these pages. I adored DI Striker and even though I am not a footie fan– it was made very clear his passion for footie in this book–I suspect this was a piece of the author injected into this character. Strikers passion for his family and children also came out even though he is separated from them. I could go on and on about Stiker but each person takes a different view when they read a book so I won’t force mine onto anyone…yet!
