Dead Level - Book 5 in the series
18 December 2016
Another excellent book from Damien Boyd. Having read the first 4 in quick succession, enjoying each one, I felt better able to understand and follow the story lines in this book. It could be read as a stand-alone, but the weaves from the earlier books support this one - the characters particularly. I thoroughly enjoy the writing, it's so easily understood and gives excellent mental imagery to keep you interested. Deep analysis of emotion isn't an element explored- thankfully. It would make for heavier reading and detract from the characteristics of Nick Dixon, the DI in these novels. As a diabetic himself, this novel raised questions and gave answers, as well as keeping him human....but that's only a portion of the plot. Politics, people, contemporary issues, love, money, dogs, adoption.....a fabulously readable book.
