You could say that Rick Cahill has had it tough. Eight years ago he was accused of murdering his beloved wife. Just two years ago he found trouble again and was forced to kill. So now he stays out of the way - making a quiet living working as a PI, taking photographs of cheating exes. Happy that the job pays the bills - yet yearning for something more, he grabs an opportunity offered to him by an old rival to join him in freeing an innocent man from life in prison. Little did he know the can of worms he would open by taking the case. As it jeopardises not only his job and security, but his life.
I'm just going to start off by admitting that this is the second book in a series, and I didn't realise it! Bad Mel not doing her research!! However I still managed to navigate the story and the characters perfectly well, as the author is an extremely talented storyteller. But I probably would have liked to read the first one before this, if only to know Rick a little better, and know the events that happened two years prior, as it doesn't really delve into it too much. But you don't need to have read it. If I can pick it up, anyone can
Rick Cahill is an AWESOME character. Totally flawed and damaged, yet so lovely and so darn likeable! I was rooting for him the whole time! I thought he was just fantastic! I loved how his head worked, and how he managed to get himself in and out of difficult situations!
All of the secondary characters were awesome! I don't have a bad thing to say about any of the characters, male or female, they were all written so cleverly. I absolutely adored every character! I loved the torturous romantically tense relationship between him and his ex Kim.
The ride that Coyle takes you on is SO MUCH FUN!! I don't know anything about La Jolla or San Diego, but I was taken into a wonderfully atmospheric city which I loved. It was FULL of action!! Not just beat-em-up action, but clever action that helped the story come together all the way to its dramatic conclusion.
So you must be reading this and wondering why I am raving about this book so much but only gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5!!? I shall explain... Two reasons.
1. The title. Night Tremors?? Makes it sound like some creepy scary horror story. I felt the title really didn't have too much to do with the story. I don't think many people who haven't read the blurb or know the author would think that this is a crime action novel. Perhaps aliens or ghosts?? :-)
2. The twist at the end was massive... MASSIVE!!! And I can understand why I have read other reviews of this book saying how awesome the ending was. It was a monster of a twist!!! And it was SO CLEVER!! But for me personally I didn't like it. I cant go into it without spoiling anything, but I just found it such a downer! However that's just me, and everyone else seems to have loved it! I think I had just developed too much of a liking for all the characters involved and then the ending just hit me. Ok no more! Don't want to spoil it!
So much thanks to Oceanview Publishing via Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
