STRENGTH IN DEPTH
on 22 July 2017
Hurwitz has done it again. This my sixth Gregg Hurwitz and, except for one less-than-100% offering, they've been brilliant. Of the Tim Rackley series, Troubleshooter is, arguably, the best yet.
It is now clear to me that, before turning on his PC to write the first word, Mr Hurwitz undertakes the detailed and forensic exploration of his subject matter that's usually reserved for historical novelists. In this case, it's the world of biker gangs. The name of the fictional biker gang here is the Laughing Sinners which is awfully close to the equally fictional biker gang, the Laffing Devils, that featured in the notoriously faked TV series, The Devil's Ride. That glitch aside, this is an absolutely storming book with no let up at all in the driving plot line and relentless action. If I have one, very minor, complaint, it's that the main hero characters are just a shade too perfect but, hey, I can forgive that in a story this good.
So my only problem now is that I'm worried that my next selection from the Gregg Hurwitz catalogue can't match this quality. But I've been wrong about that so far, so I'm, definately, going to give it a go!
