Book of the Month October 2012
A Classic Thriller – Review by Mike Smith

A few weeks ago I caught an old episode of the Rockford Files on one of the gazillion channels that we have these days and it took me back to the golden era of detective shows on TV: Ironsides, Columbo, Kojak. They don’t make ‘em like that any more … or do they?
The Color Of Greed isn’t going to win the Booker prize, but I don’t suppose the author, Jack Thompson, had that in mind when he created his private investigator, Raja Williams. The story’s leading man is a wealthy, Oxford-educated philanthropist of Jamaican descent who tells it like it is, but, underneath the blunt exterior, he wants to catch the bad guys.
Jack Thompson doesn’t stray far from the beaten track of the classic detective thriller: a rich heiress wants the death of her husband investigated but the police are denying that there was any evidence of foul play. Raja Williams takes the case – no payment required as he already has his own private jet and money to burn.
In running e-thriller.com I get to read – or at least start – a number of books that follow this proven formula, but The Color Of Greed is well-written, has a good plot and the dialogue works. And yes, we would all like to be Raja Williams with a private jet and the ladies falling at our feet.
Jack Thompson gives his readers what they want: a good plot with a central character painted in bold colours. Who loves ya, baby?!

From the Author

Q & A with Jack Thompson

Q: How would you describe this book?
The Color of Greed is a mystery thriller introducing Raja Williams, a private investigator, and his sidekick Vinny, a skilled computer hacker. Although the story starts as a simple murder mystery whodunit, it quickly leads Raja into a multi-layered tale of intrigue. It's an old-fashioned detective story with current themes.

Q: What makes the Raja Williams series so popular?
It doesn't have the perverse, graphic violence or explicit sex that dominates too much contemporary fiction. It's good, clean fun.

Q: What inspired you to write the Raja Williams series?
I'm a fan of hard-boiled mysteries and wanted to try my hand at creating an enjoyable crime-fighting duo. I've always enjoyed the banter between two lead characters regardless of genre. I'm reminded of the Lethal Weapon series of movies. The character interaction sets the tone and carries the story.
