Solid, dark, adult crime,
This review is from: This is Life (A Jack Palms Novel) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not for the faint hearted, this book follows a has-been actor as he unfolds and investigates killings of young women in and around the city. They are all linked, and soon the culprits are after the main stars of the book......
It's grim, dark and seedy, with graphic scenes and some notorious "hard man" characterisations. It's not full of cliches and normal crime 101's, so credit to the author must be given for this.
I enjoyed the plot - some twists are there, and the reader is left guessing. It does get a bit movie-star far fetched at times, with some odd physical discrepancies that leave you a bit confused / unconvinced. One moment the star is doubled over in pain from a single punch, the next moment he can take a barrage of assault. I guess it keeps the plot going.
All in all I did enjoy this book, and look forward to the next installment.
