Anyway, I've heard a whisper that this is his last outing - say it isn't so? I'm going to really miss him, and Scout and, of course, Stan. And, no more forays into the Black Museum... sigh...
Back to the book - sixth in series, start with book one and read in order - yadda yadda! Honestly, you'd do yourself a favour if you do as they are all excellent books - both reading and listening to - I also have all the Audible versions (apart from this one which isn't out yet) and they are brilliantly narrated.
So, in this book Jessica, a young mother is kidnapped. Taken from a car as she was returning home with her young son left strapped into his baby-seat. Max is called in to investigate and things take a bit of a dark turn when he discovers that Jessica's flat mate, and owner of the car she was driving, Snezia, is romantically linked to crime boss, and nemesis, Harry Flowers. Was it really Jessica who was the target or did they get the wrong girl? But then Jessica has her own connections to crime via her father, an ex-cop. Max and his team, still reeling from the events of the last book (no spoilers), have their work cut out for them as they try to cut through the noise and work out what is going on, in time for them to save Jessica.
There was so much going on in this book that my head was pretty much spinning as much as Max and his team's. Wow, this author never fails to deliver with twist after twist, turn after turn and plenty of dead ends to boot! There's also the obligatory trip to the Black Museum to garner a bit of background and a small amount of Max battling Anne for the good of their daughter. Stan gets his fair share of the action too but thankfully, not as much as the last book.
Plotting is tight and there is pretty much no superfluous padding which means that the story gets on with itself at a fair lick. So much so that I found it very hard to put down and became quite grumpy when life dictated to me that I had to!
All in all, if this really is the last book, it's not a bad one to end on. I'd love to read more about Max and his wonderful families - personal and professional - but I respect the author for going out on a high. Maybe he'll sneak me a few short stories in the future. Hope so. I'd hate to have to say a final goodbye to Max.
I feel as if I have got to know Max & Scout, and not forgetting Stan.
Once again a gripping tale that I knew would twist but didn't guess. Tony Parsons brings it all to life and draws you in.
