ANGEL & KINCADE MYSTERY #3

BEWARE THE MAN WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE.

BEWARE THE MAN WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE.

When DI Max Angel and DS Catalina Kincade are called to a hijacked lorry at the side of the road, the carnage they find inside makes them think its destination was a slaughterhouse, not a warehouse. The discovery of a woman’s hairs on a blanket makes it clear that cheap Romanian refrigerators weren’t the only goods the butchered driver was transporting, his human cargo set free by the killers.

It’s a spiteful twist of fate Angel could do without. He’s still coming to terms with his wife’s death, killed when another Romanian lorry driver fell asleep at the wheel and ploughed into their car before absconding back to Romania. Now, Angel’s superiors are questioning his ability to get on with the job, to keep his personal demons at bay.

As the investigation gathers pace and the body count rises, Angel finds himself drawn to an old, forgotten case – the tragic suicide of another young woman trafficked into a life of sexual slavery. And if things weren’t complicated enough, the murdered driver’s brother – a detective from the Romanian police – turns up to offer an unofficial hand. The question is, whose side is he on?

Another excellent story in the Evan Buckley series written by a master wordsmith. Excellent plot with lots of twists and turns that surprised me with each page turn. 20 years of family strife and revenge make this an interesting read. Don’t miss it. This is the type of story that will probably in some ways haunt you forever. I know, it will me.

Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great crime thriller movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Evan Buckley gets better with each book. As do the story lines. I’ve read these three in a row in only two days! Ready for the next one!

One of the best I’ve read in a while. Plenty to keep any reader totally engrossed. The twist at the end surprised the heck out of me.

Plumbob

Compelling. Fast-paced story that leaves unanswered questions. There is violence but no drag-you-down drama. Intriguing storyline with plenty of twists and gallows humor. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Classic quote and entertaining dialogue.

Bookzilla

Wow. I have just found a new author to love and follow. I love the honest grittiness of this new character, his flaws, his heart and his determination. James Harper seems to know the human condition very well and explores it in his writing. With gripping plots and a few helpers this books comes to a very satisfying ending. I recommend it. Soooo good.

Toots Sullivan
