I received this book courtesy of Mr. Daley for the purpose of a fair and hones review.
Overview: Jake Turner is just a simple private investigator. At least that is what some of this clients think. Truthfully, he got into the private eye gig because he was done being a homicide detective. Finding missing people, catching cheaters is all easier if you didn’t have to deal with all of the red tape. Take his current cases for example. Someone is trying to blackmail a prominent judge. And a known criminal kingpin wants Jake to find one of his girls. What could possibly go wrong?
Story Telling: Mr. Daley has a strong, easy to read, style. I’d go so far as to say that it is almost conversational.
Likes: Jake is a rather straight guy. With his partner Tim Nolan, and their receptionist Martha Nye, he manages to keep the business moving smoothly. I so like the fact that Mr. Daley immortalized his loved ones in some of the best characters. Oh, I so felt for Jim. Who hasn’t just wanted to go to bed when duty call?
Dislike: The only think I didn’t care for here was the bad guys’ fates. It made sense with the story, but I just didn’t like it.
Favorite Scene: Well, there was Jim’s and Jake’s meetings for drink. Or when Jake tried to out drink his cashier friend. Oh, I know. It was when Jake kicked Tito into the pool, that surely was the best.
Conclusion: This was a excellent book. One that is a sure addition to any crime-lover’s library (at least the ones that like the mystery element). It made mine. Enjoy the read.
