But my biggest bug bear was how he put himself in mortal danger (especially towards the end, when he had his "Scooby Doo" moment and went into somewhere that he really shouldn't have - especially when no one knew where he was). It kind of got a bit silly around that point. And in the big fight scene (the bricks one, if you're read it) I got bored of who hit whom and how hard and skipped through it all (think that sort of writing must be a man thing as it bores me rigid, if it goes on for too long).
As a free book - I can't really complain much. But would I pay £3.99 for further volumes? Def not. I was reasonably caught up in Evan's life - but not that much.
While James Harper comes from a different direction, the result is equally satisfying. His "hero", Evan Buckley carries emotional baggage just like Tom Thorne but similarly doesn't allow it to diminish his thirst for justice or his appetite for "unsolvable" mysteries. If there is an easy way for Evan to find the truth, he rarely seems to find it but, having worked things out the hard way, he very quickly starts joining the dots. He has a weakness for both booze and women which sometimes threatens to undermine both his good intentions and his health. Conversely, his strength is evident in his dogged determination to overlook obvious personal danger, his ability to differentiate between good advice and deliberate misdirection and his stubborn refusal to accept failure whatever the cost.
I thoroughly enjoyed this cathartic tale of redemption married perfectly to a journey from the seedier side of detection to something more honourable - and therefore more satisfying.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I'm hooked!
no James Bond or Jack Reacher! He certainly put himself into some dangerous situations.
He is a private eye and though struggling to make money, takes on a pro bono case of a boy and
his father who went missing 10 years before.
There were very few "suspects" with everybody involved blaming everyone else, so it got a
little bit "samey" after a while with Evan trying to figure out who was telling the truth.
Then towards the end the action sped up as he solved the mystery.
