As usual I received this title free for the purposes of review. This time it was directly from the author in an email and usually that's a pretty bad sign. In this case I was pleasantly surprised.

So, this a story largely about the mob. People are putting out hits on each other and there's a fair amount of violence and profanity but the striking thing about this book is that it has a surprising element of family and devotion. I can't go into much detail for fear of spoilers but somehow in the middle of all this violence and bloodshed there's a scared little boy who's really the center of everyone's attention. It is a rare event when Mobsters somehow intersect with Social Services but this is one of those rare times.

On the positive side, the story, as I described above is truly unique. To be tragically cliche this is crime drama.... with a heart, and not a disembodied heart left bloody and still warm on someone's pillow. The author's depiction of the plight of this young man is at once tragic and heart-rending. It doesn't take long for you to care deeply about what happens to Coffey's characters.

The only negative I would point out is that at times some of the plot points seem rather iffy. The ones that spring most readily to mind involve certain chemical reactions that I don't think work quite the way they are portrayed in the book. Also a few financial transactions that take place seem like they might arouse a lot more notice from the authories. That said, most of the bits are pretty easily glossed over.

In summary, one of the better crime dramas to show up on my virtual doorstep in... well, ever. Coffey's book offers us not only the usual dramatic crime thriller but also a look into a dark underworld where kids shuffle sadly from home to home. There's a lot of sadness and heart to be found in this book so it crosses the boundaries between family and crime drama very well. An auspicious first effort from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bang on November 29, 2013
This is a story of what happens at the edges, of when we are forced to confront ourselves, what will we do?

As we join the story a cast of characters exists that have reached critical points in their lives and the outcomes will have life changing consequences. How and why these are intertwined is not immediately obvious. As the story unfolds it indeed becomes the suspenseful thriller that it is said to be.

This is a highly entertaining read from the perspective of being a mafia thriller, it has all of the elements that one looks for in plenty and it earns it stars because we get further into the characters and see some of the human side that might just remain in there somewhere. It is relatively graphic at times, disturbing at others, but certainly a page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book January 29, 2014

Verified Purchase
Very fun read, enjoyable and fast paced. Although this is his first book, it is very well written and holds your attention. Some violence and profanity but fits in well with the genre. Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding debut novel! February 3, 2014
I wasn't going to read this book as soon as I bought it, but the novel I was in the middle of reading failed to hold my attention. At a loose end - as you are when between books! - I "flicked" to the first page of FIGHT - and didn't stop reading for hours! I couldn't put it down and finished it at 4 o'clock this morning.

It says a lot for the skill of this new author that he presents a hero who is deeply flawed and yet for whom the reader comes to agonise. Gabe Adelaide is the son of a Mafia boss who helps rule Boston with brutality and a lot of bloodshed. The DA, Bruce Hudson, a man whose health is failing fast and his wife, Martha, are trying to adopt a child who, in his short life, has seen the ultimate tragedy. Bruce gets Gabe into court but fails to convict him of murder and extortion , thanks to the intimidation tactics of the Mafia henchmen.Then the child, August, goes missing...

This amazing novel starts out with a bang and the tension continues to grow. A feeling of foreboding crept over me as the plot unfolded. This couldn't end well...

A well-written story with an incredibly sensitive thread running through it, this is one of the very few books I have read where I shed tears at the end. I will be looking forward to this author's next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stands out from the crowd February 11, 2014
Many books that I review end up receiving a star rating in the vicinity of three. These books are not terrible, but they are not particularly remarkable either. It's not surprising that most books fall into this region of the spectrum. As a reviewer, this leaves me room to move when I am presented with a book that stands out from the crowd. Fight, by Brent Coffey, is one of those. Here is a writer who knows how to set a scene, who knows how to build suspense, who knows how to give out tantalising hints to the reader; and who knows how to surprise the reader.

Fight tells the story of Gabe Adelaide, the adopted son of a Boston Mafia boss; of Bruce Hudson, the District Attorney who tried and failed to prosecute him; of August, the little boy who witnessed his parents' death, and whom Hudson and his wife want to adopt. Around these characters is woven a fascinating story of intrigue, plots, deceit and misunderstanding. The main characters in this story are complex, many-layered, flawed and utterly believable. As much as this is a mafia-style thriller, it is also an exploration of how life's events shape character. It is a story of loss and redemption. Within the story the characters carry their burdens, but learn surprising lessons from life. In presenting some (but by no means all) of the minor characters (particularly the `bad guys') Coffey occasional falls back on stereotypes. But this is not at all true of the main characters or many of the other minor characters. They behave and think in ways that are entirely believable.

I had a few quibbles with some of the minor plot points in the story, which were unconvincing. However these were never central to the plot, and could easily have been addressed.
