This 3rd book in the Daniel Becket series is a stand-alone and another 5 Star offering from best selling author Dominic Piper.
Daniel Beckett's facility with the ladies would make James Bond blush. As in the previous two books in this series, Beckett meets a large variety of extremely beautiful women, most of whom he manages to sleep with. In this installment the author seems intent on pushing this to the limit. Beckett's dating life is a real logistical puzzle. On his way to a lunch date with one girl, Beckett might stop to get coffee with another, pick up the barista while the second girl is in the bathroom, and get a raunchy photo texted from yet another girlfriend while all this is happening. That's a typical Tuesday for Beckett.
Fortunately, none of these open-mined ladies seem to mind. Still, it's a miracle Beckett can find any time at all in his day to actually solve murderous conspiracies.
It's all a lot of fun, though, especially with the witty repartee between Beckett and his girlfriends that the dialogue is packed with. And one early scene involving a liaison with a sexy Triad assassin in a Chinese restaurant will leave you needing to defog your glasses!
This is a real page-turner as Beckett unwinds a dangerous and murky conspiracy. The people he's up against are mysterious and utterly unafraid of getting blood on their hands. Fortunately, Beckett is always the smartest guy in the room - not to mention the most dangerous.
This is a sharp, clever thriller that was a huge amount of fun to read. Five stars!
witted and incredibly funny private eye Mr Piper has created. Perhaps, it is his insouciant
stance on life – his 'take it quick I may not be alive tomorrow' attitude, or maybe it's his
ability to get out of the toughest scrapes that would put a normal guy six feet under.
I'm not sure – maybe a combination of all – but this unique cocktail is what drives me to
continue turning those pages late into the night. Literally, an unputdownable book!
Femme Fatale has to be the best book out of the three Beckett PI books (the other two
being Kiss Me When I'm Dead and Death is the New Black). However, if you're new to the
wondrous world of Mr Beckett, you MUST read the rest of them. All the stories are
standalone and are terrific. So back to Femme Fatale, a supercharged tale of Triads,
burlesque dancers, fatal obsession and secret societies, with lashings of lascivious liaisons
with beautiful women, eye-watering violence and laugh out loud humour.
The tremendous quality of Mr Piper's writing means you're taken down paths with red
herrings a plenty, but that makes the eventual denouement so much more intriguing. I love
subtlety in a story, and from the moment Beckett hears amongst the cacophonous sounds
of London, a terrified girl's voice uttering a single word 'No', as the PI passes an
underground car park, the tone is set. It's the little things that matter big time!
I rarely read a book twice, but I did with Femme Fatale, just to savour those magnificent
moments of Mr Beckett's life and that second of enlightenment bringing all the pieces of the
puzzle together. Spoilers aside, I'm just going to say that Beckett's confrontations with the
baddies and his quick repartee and even quicker lethal actions make this an absolute noir
classic, and the main reason for buying this book. Make a date with Mr Beckett, I assure you
he'll give you the ride of your life!
