This is the second in a series but is perfectly good as a stand-alone. I haven’t read anything else by this author but I can see that changing! The writing is very good, pulling you into the story. The characters are three-dimensional and complex. Unlike many a crime book these days, which seem to strive to find the most shocking twist, the power of this book is that it all feels extremely plausible. I enjoyed this a great deal and highly recommend it.
The author has captured a real gritty feel of the seedier side of life in a largish city without excess over dramatisation. The characters have a three dimensional presence, good and bad sides mixed together, becoming real people rather than beings in a book. The plot, too is feasible: this really could be happening somewhere near you.
This is the first of Keith Dixon's books that I have read and it certainly will not be the last. My thanks to the author for gifting me a prepublication copy.
Recommended to all who enjoy realistic crime novels
But on to the book, I loved the plot, the eclectic cast of characters are all really well developed and believable, and the atmosphere Dixon manages to create is really compelling.
I particularly liked the conflict in Paul Storey between his old life as a police officer, and his new loyalty to his new boss, it provided another level of complexity to his character and the also the plot.
This is an excellently written book and highly recommended for anyone who is a fan of thrillers.
Bran is of course, a tough man, exceptionally so, but the tale really deals with the question, is he more a sinner? or more sinned against? This book is too new to tell you that, but finding out is a real pleasure. I can tell you that the story involves the usual gathering of shady characters who talk in those delightful undertones asking about the banal things of life, which actually translate to - 'I'll break your legs, and worse, if you cross me'.
Bran is indeed rough; but is rough, bad? Are there worse cockney diamond geezers in the tale than Bran Doyle? Again, wait and see.
Yet another highly enjoyable offering from Mr Dixon.
