Childhood friendships change, of course they do. But Harry Beck never expected just how much it was possible for those to change, so his rose-tinted glasses don’t fall off until faces the awful truth. Thankfully, current friendships turn out to be more solid.
When you have a small charter business in the Bahamas, what could be more idyllic than that? Carefree and relaxed as Harry himself; no responsibilities and no commitments, there are few clouds on his horizon. When his young mechanically minded partner, Stevie, a tough tomboy whose loyalty knows no bounds, gets beaten up, his life starts to unravel. The pace accelerates until Harry needs to fight or flee. And, cornered, fight he does.
Easy writing, so easy reading. The first in a series of Harry Beck adventures gives us a promising picture of what lies ahead. I enjoyed this and look forward to more of the same. I loved the backdrop to the Maynard Sims team development and I think a similar set-up would benefit a lot of writers, but getting over the ego hurdle must be a bit step.
