If there is any scenario that has my heart rate doing double time, it is treachery and betrayal, especially when the characters have wormed their way under my skin. Tight as a drum, this is the tale of two LAPD undercover narcotics detectives; fast friends until an incident fractures their mutual trust. One takes the fall and gets dismissed from the service, but he can’t let go of his obsession to take the drug gang down. He can’t do it alone and needs his ex-friend to make it happen. The suspicion and tension between the two men is brilliantly handled as they edge towards the explosive finale.
Some place a higher value on the David & Jonathan scenario than others. Mr Nelson appears to be one such, and the emotional impact of a friendship under threat is very well explored here. His talent is on the threshold of great impact in the world of thriller fiction.
This was an Instafreebie gift, so thanks to them and the huge contribution they make to us thriller junkies. We authors appreciate reviews immensely. They can make a world of difference to make or break success in our chosen passion. Book Postmortem does not buy books, but crime authors needing a review may request one and send the material. If the tale impresses, it will find its way here.
