Cyber Crime does not mean cyber punishment.
Scar Tissue continues where The Shadow Broker, reviewed here recently, left off. The reader is under the wheels the moment they step off the pavement.
Finn Harding will find you, no matter where you hide. The PI has long since lost his licence, but is still the go-to man for tracing people who don’t want to be found, like the Banker, for instance.
These two novels are great gritty entertainment. The Harding family characters are unusual and ruthless, with the murder of their enemies somehow not a detraction from cheering them on. Finn’s father, Albert, is now a permanent fixture in Finn’s life, anchored by his new found granddaughter.
But Albert has a friend in trouble back in his ex-home village in the backwoods of Maine when an old enemy gets out of prison, which makes for a gripping side tale.
Meanwhile Finn’s brother, Connor makes an appearance and the brothers together try to deal with the main problem involving Finn’s ex-wife’s doctor husband who gets himself involved with a mega ruthless drug lord, whose strong-arm right-hand-man is using Finn’s ex and his daughter as leverage.
Enough of the hints and spoilers. Thank you, Trace Conger, for giving BOOK POSTMORTEM the opportunity to revue this exciting instalment; bring on the next!
