Wow, this book really impressed me. The Authors writing style reminds me other great Murder Mystery writers I’ve read, like Michael Connelly and Steven Dunne. This story is so well written, and easy to read. Thomas Blume is a bit of a mess, but understandably so after his wife and son were murdered in the UK. He moved across six months ago from New York to investigate who was responsible for their deaths, but after not getting anywhere, he found himself hitting the bottle a bit too often. Unbeknown to him, his friend and landlord Amir placed an advertisement in the paper for work, as a private Investigator for him. With his skills as a NYPD Detective, the only thing he has done so far is to investigate marital problems with people cheating on each other. That’s how the police have ended up at his door, when one of his clients Anthony Taylor commits suicide after Thomas presented him with photographic evidence, of his wife in the throes of passion with another man. The ad in the paper certainly worked, and Thomas ends up investigating the disappearance of Elizabeth Ellington’s 10 year old, son Jack. When he discovers another boy of around the same age and appearance who has recently gone missing, he starts to wonder if there is a connection. Now that he is drinking less, he can feel all of his detective instincts start to click back into gear. PT Read certainly has a talent for writing, and I’d definitely recommend this book. A great story.
