EVAN BUCKLEY THRILLERS #9
Old grievances and godless crimes.
Fresh blood and echoes of forgotten times.
And justice, rough and flawed, come at last.
EVAN BUCKLEY THRILLERS #9
Better than no justice at all.
When Gene Rivers’ breakfast is rudely interrupted in order to identify the body of a murdered woman he last saw twenty years ago, he knows the past has finally caught up with him, that he will soon pay the price for the mistakes he made back them.
Unsure whether the killing marks the close of unsettled business or the start of a new chapter, lifting the lid on old grievances and buried injustices that have festered for half a lifetime, he employs PI Evan Buckley to investigate. In a small town on the Maine coast, Evan unearths a series of brutal unsolved murders, and the more he digs, the more the evidence points to a far worse crime hidden beneath forty years of lies and deceit.
Meanwhile Evan’s own past refuses to lie still as, unknown to him, Detective Kate Guillory scratches an itch with unforeseen and disastrous consequences, increasing the burden weighing on his conscience as he faces an impossible dilemma – disclose the terrible secrets he’s uncovered or assume the role of hanging judge and dispense a rough justice of his own.

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 beat I’ve read in a while. Plenty to keep any reader totally engrossed. The twist at the end surprised the heck out of me.
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.
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 harpers 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.
I loved this book and its protagonist, Evan Buckley. Every thing about this story is believable and the character development is true to life. Great story and dialogue. I’ll read everything this author turns out.
This book is outstanding and possibly one of the best mystery books I have read! Boy oh boy page turner all the way. I was nervous scared I mean I had all kinds of emotions going on there. I wanted it to end to relieve my stress but was disappointed when it did end. I wanted more!!!!!
