Gretta writes stories that are complex but the reader is drawn along into the plot at much the same pace as the private detective Tyronne Swift so they are easy to understand.
Easier to understand than Tyronne's private life which includes former wives and a partially deaf daughter. On the side a disagreeable estate matter, a vicious reporter,fallout from deaths in previous cases. Gretta describes this side of the action in detail. So the story does tend to wander along at a walking pace.
The first couple of chapters give us probable cause and a suspect but that is unknown to Tyronne as he ferrets through the twisted and complex life of the victim who outdoes Tyronne in wives and girlfriends.
The family or rather a family connection is the key and this is revealed to Tyronne near the end of the book but not to us. There are surprises about this information and Tyronne packages up the case, private life and a few more things but not all at the end.
Those who like action will find this book a bit slow paced and I suspect those who want a pleasant tour will be disappointed. The book makes a good read.
Commenced this book hoping and praying it was as good as some of the reviews I've read, but sadly, it wasn't. I found it far too descriptive, to the point you would lose track of where the storyline was going. Also, way too many characters popping up and being connected at different times was lost on me. It was an ok read but I won't be following it up with any other books from the series.
This is sixth book in the series of Private Investigator Tyrone Swift. These books just kept getting better & better. This one is the best so far, so many twists & turns right up to the last page. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy
