More About the Author

I was born in Liverpool in 1971, and began writing two and a half years ago.

I'd threatened to write for a long time, but never plucked up the courage to do so. Then, finally, I embraced it. I love to write, I really do. I've read about some authors who consider writing to be the most tedious part of being an author. Not me, I love that burst of creativity that comes after ten or so minutes.

In terms of authors I admire, they would be Conn Iggulden, Robert Harris, Wilbur Smith and Thomas Harris. I love the darkness of the Hannibal Lecter series, and the fact that regardless of what he does, Hannibal still remains likeable.

Currently, I have two books from The Auslander Series complete, The End and Occupation. There is a third to follow. I have also written, and will soon publish, a YA book. Thanks for reading!

Dave.

This book had a lot of potential: good prologue, interesting, initial set up. However, even flipping between England and United States was confusing, (although that could have been the fault of the editing) characters and circumstances that at first were intriguing, did not maintain my interest. The pay off at the end, did not satisfyingly connect with the long, involved and scattered plot details.

It is not the kind of story line I expected. It got confusing to where I could not keep with the story line. The end of book had no actual finish.

I truly enjoyed this book and could not put it down once I began to read, in fact the Kindle could not turn the page fast enough.
An interesting concept with good strong characters I hope the whole series comes on the free books section although I am sure they will be worth buying.

While it may start out a bit slow if you stick with it you will find that it is a diamond in the rough. The story has a great concept and the characters are well thought out. However, at times it may seem to have been a bit too ambitious it is still worthwhile reading. Give Dave Lacey a try, you will not be disappointed.

This book had me hooked from the start.
The story opens in 1965 in Mexico with a Prologue to the main story and then moves into the current day. There are several threads to follow both in England and America which although seemingly unrelated, lead the reader towards the conclusion of the book.
The characters in this novel are very well developed, especially Detective Jack Sumner, who is down to earth with a good sense of humour. The dialogue between Jack and his partner Smithy is particularly well written, giving the reader an excellent view of their relationship and insight into their respective characters.
Throughout the story, the author maintains the suspense, and although light is shed on various situations, the full story isn't revealed until the very end of the book.
This is an exception novel from a debut author and I look forward to the next book in the trilogy which is due out later this year.
The author has been reading Jo Nesbo who I am a great fan of, and I will now read Conn Iggulden because of his recommendation.

Well done, Dave Lacey, I cannot praise this book highly enough.

Slow starter, but steady action. One can get lost in this author's ADHD writing style, however, I was still able to keep up.

I came to Dave Lacey's book under the impression that it was a vanilla detective story. However, the book also blends in Dan Brown-style mystery, and this begets an intriguing confection.

The mystery is introduced at the beginning of the book, wherein the discovery of a beautiful codex on an abandoned airstrip east of Nuevo Tortuguero, Mexico sparks a series of murders. The middle of the book follows detective Jack Sumner and his sidekick Smithy as they attempt to fit together the puzzle pieces of these bizarre and inexplicable killings, which are somehow linked to the US government.

I was particularly impressed by the concluding chapters, in which Lacey skillfully ties together the disparate plot elements, and ultimately leaves the reader on tenterhooks.
