For example, halfway through the book I was sure the percentage indicator on my Kindle was wrong because the detective, Steve Salem, had everything all figured out and the case was over. Then a sudden twist took things in an every more interesting direction. I loved it. That happened a couple of times and really kept me engaged and reading.
I know it's cliche to say one couldn't put a book down, but it's literally true for me in this case. I was on an airplane flight and watching a good movie (Fury) but wanted to read while eating a meal on the plane as I hate chewing with earplugs in. I figured I'd read for 10 minutes and then back to Fury. Nope. I read the whole book and only went back to watching Brad Pitt once I'd finished and was sure whodunit.
This was the first Tim Baker novel I read, but it won't be the last. As soon as I finished "Back Seat to Justice," I purchased the rest of his books for my Kindle (iPad). I was very pleased to see that Ike--a supporting character in this novel--appears in other books, including having a collection of short stories featuring him. I'm looking forward to learning more about him. I'm also hoping the lead character in this novel, Steve Salem, reappears in a long series of novels of his own.
This story of Steve the my mind engaged all through the book. I am usually a romance, suspense and drama kind of reader, but the characters, and storylines had me hooked. This book started out with a Ex cop turned PI, working a case of cheating husband. Little did i remember the subtle way the true killer was written into the book.... I really couldn't understand the partnership formed between Steve and Val.... justice in this case took a backseat, still can't wrap my mind around that but it was very interesting reading you work it out.
Not enough romance for me but I really enjoyed the drama and the story settings were great. Each person story fit right in, with very little reading drag. Complexed, twist and turns If i need a PI I would look him up....
A funny at times mystery that takes up one blind trail and down another blind alley as Salem blunders and meanders into more trouble than one could ever imagine, including old murders, stolen identities, and a burning thirst for seeing that justice is done.
What a great way to end the summer!
Back Seat to Justice grabbed me at the opening. Not only did it grab me but when I thought it was finished - Mr. Baker exploded from the gate again.
I didn't want it to end. And when it did, I wanted to go and find the next one. He writes in a way that I love leaving the reader wanting more.
Tim Baker remember that name- he will haunt you!
