The story is very well crafted and tight, but not predictable. So Alan Gleghorn was a wife beater, and his wife Stephanie was on the run from him? Somehow one feels good about how it ended for him. But then Robert is a different thing altogether. He is the classic example of what war does to those who fight them. They never come back whole. Robert was truly damaged. He got away easy.
I enjoyed this read thoroughly, and it was very well written. I didn’t find any errors at all. Kudos to this book
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A tested British detective versus a battle fatigued American soldier on a murderous tear.
FOUR STARS * * * *
This story spans multiple homicides across two continents as tested British detective becomes embroiled in an investigation into a murderous tear executed by battle fatigued American soldier who has succumbed to a mental break and has lost his full grip on reality and morality.
This is the second novel I have read this year where the story is told from more than one narrative point (the first-person perspective) to a third-person narrative. The transition is properly defined so you can pick up right away on it when it occurs. It was a little more abrupt than in the last novel I read (where I liked that transition style better) but it does not detract from the story flow.
The story is told from an investigative perspective (when in that first person perspective) and then it lends to a tension / thriller setup when you are reading the parts of the story where it is being told in the third-person narrative.
I personally felt the change up kept me as a reader slightly more engaged (“gee – what’s going to happen next”) than how I might be with one avenue of storytelling alone.
I felt a little disconnected at times with the story where it was being driven from Robert Cleghorn’s “tell” (the American soldier) but tried to read it (once I got used to that feeling) like I was the disassociated special forces trained killer. I really feel locking my mind into that perspective helped me get a feel for the character and the pacing and emotion (or his lack of it) of his situations and scenarios as they played out.
I recommend “Damaged Goods: A Detective Inspector White Caper (D.I. White Mysteries Book 1)” by Jack Everett and David Coles – * * * * Four Stars (out of five)
I will definitely read more "Inspector White" books.
Overall, though, I enjoyed the characters, and the suspense kept me turning pages.
