Brearton is also finicky about including detail to bring every moment of every scene to life. For example the word "hazel" in the sentence "Taber searched Brendan with his hazel eyes." With another author, these details could be seen as unnecessary padding that slows down the story, but Brearton sticks to a strict tempo and communicates with a hi-res vision.
Brearton's big problem, and the one that kept me from giving this book five stars, is his inclusion of "was" in almost every sentence, and sometimes two or three times per sentence. It becomes monotonous because the author employs the same sentence structure over and over and over.
Brearton also falls down somewhat on the action scenes which seem poorly choreographed. The rest of the book is very carefully thought through but when the action starts happening, logic and reality fall by the wayside.
Because of the careful choice of detail, the book absolutely reeks of authenticity and I felt that I was reading about real places, real people and real events. I enjoyed it right up to the last page.
BUT THEN TO GET TO THE END AND HAVE NOT ENDING...BAD AUTHOR CHOICE.
More and more readers are boycotting authors that do this. HAVE ENOUGH FAITH IN YOUR WORK AND YOUR READERS TO NOT EXTORT US....TOO BAD YOU DID NOT BECAUSE I WILL NOT READ BOOK 3 OR ANY OTHER BOOKS BY YOU.
Without giving too much away from the book, there is a passage that says: “The truth is that wherever a man lies with a woman, there, whether they like it or not, a transcendental relation is set between them which must be eternally enjoyed or eternally endured.” When you think about it, this is a very poignant thought. It is part of the story but also causes the reader to reflect on personal experiences. Maybe this is part of what makes this story so enthralling.
Whether I like a book or not is a very personal opinion. I may like it a great deal, you may not. With all that said, for a person like me, this was a good story and well worth the read. It retained my interest and kept me wondering about different facets of where the story line was headed. The author, T.J. Brearton is good at story telling in his first commercially published novel. He makes it all the easier to relate to his characters or at least understand where they’re coming from. One of the key talents of this writer is to write a good ending. So many scribes tell a good story and then leave the reader flat at the end. That is certainly not the case in this edition. I won’t give it away but suffice to say, the ending is good. Take a chance and read the book and see if you are of the same opinion. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Brendan is the stereotypical flawed detective, with demons of his own to fight; addictions to alcohol and drugs being just two of the daily battles he has to fight. His adversaries in this case are clever, they know a great deal about his history and use it to taunt him but he is stronger than either they, or even he, think. Apart from those flaws, Brendan is not stereotypical in any other way. His background and education are as far removed from law as can be imagined. What possible connection can a neurobiologist have with law enforcement? None immediately springs to mind, but it does affect the way he thinks and processes information, it even enables him to handle pain and, bizarrely, a near death experience
This was a different take on this genre. There was plenty of action to keep the attention, even during the times when Brendan was slobbing out, indulging his vices in a world of self pity, it felt as though there was action going on as his incredible thought processes rolled on.
For me there were a couple of unanswered questions at the end of the book i.e. where did certain substances come from, what was so vital about the connection between Kevin and another character and most importantly, who was really behind it all? These are the only reason I haven't given this book a 5* rating. It is a great read with a rattling pace and I do recommend it.
Bits of it were hard to read but did demonstrate a darker side of the world and were key to the plot.
I've given 4 stars rather than five just because it took a while to engage with the story and I'm a demanding woman so wanted that from page1!.
I've read other books by this author and they are all excellent, in particular Gone and Dark Web.
Knick used instead of nick, someone mentioning a ten O'clock meeting then it morphing into nine O'clock a couple of pages later, spacked used instead of maybe spackled....
Lots was totally unbelievable. You find a dead woman who is a mother to a little girl and as a detective you make NO attempt whatsoever to find out where the daughter is ?? Really ?
I was sick and tired of hearing how often Brendan felt light-headed too. It happened yet again and I gave up.
