David Videcette is quite the masterful storyteller. While this story is based on true events, I can never figure out where fact ends and fiction begins. And then I read the author’s notes and almost wish I hadn’t. Sometimes it’s better not to know.
The Detriment is action-packed from the very first page. There’s a lot going on and it’s one heck of a compelling, intense and thrilling ride! It left me utterly breathless, exhausted but oh so, satisfied. This is such an incredible series and it would make the most fantastic movie or TV series. With a flawed, yet highly likeable protagonist, various threads and a brilliantly executed and intelligent plot, this chilling thriller is a total must-read! I can’t wait to read the next Jake Flannigan book!
