Lawrence immediately involves his readers in this excellent series by introducing his characters and the environment in which they find themselves, and then introduces the flags that will point the way toward the evil to come. In this volume the time is November of 1943 and the suspense starts with the opening lines: “I want you to kill him for me.” I was sitting in a private car in Grand Central Station. The seats were covered with a velvet blue cloth. A man had served me a cup of coffee hot like I enjoy it. The man left the two of us alone. The man I called Agent Madison, rising in the FBI ranks, was sitting opposite me. His left hand was shaking ever so slightly. There was a twitch I his left eye…I stared across at Agent Madison. I didn’t quite know how to ask him why the FBI should pick me to murder someone. I always figured the FBI was pretty good at murdering America’s enemies…’ Bizarre, yes, but this is a fine window into the mystery that unfolds.
With that suspenseful overture the story is launched. ‘It is 1943. New York City private detective Jack Ryder gets an urgent request from the FBI. Ryder is supposed to kill a dangerous Nazi. He also must help a client who fell in love with a woman he saw on a train platform. The client doesn't know her name but has a clue in the jacket she was wearing. Ryder aids an emotionally damaged veteran, but the two of them are in love with the waitress Ruth. Only one of them can win her heart.’
This sixth volume may be short - an easy two hour read – but the impact of Lawrence’s tale spinning is powerful – beautifully written and paced, and related by wholly three-dimensional characters. Lawrence J Epstein is an exciting author. Grady Harp, May 21
It's my first time reading a book written by this author and I can definitely say that he is very good in this genre. He aced the action parts, making a reader feel the rush of anticipation as of what is bound to happen in the next chapters. I enjoyed the ride when reading this book. The plot was not perfect but the important thing was I found myself engaged in its story.
The writing style is rather light-hearted, so it is easy to read. Jack is a well-defined character, the rest are a bit murky, which is what they should be so we can suspect them. The action is plausible, although I think Jack should have died the way he carries on. To summarise, it is a pleasant crime story that portrays something of the life in New York during the war.
