While somewhat predictable and slow in some parts of the book (why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5), it was still enjoyable with a few twists and turns. Mix in gold mining, a small tourist town, dog fights, and the Russian mob, and you've got a decent book that did keep me reading until the end. I think my favorite character was Juliet - she was snarky and strong, but also charismatic when things start to get intense with Flint and his family.
This book does not end on a cliffhanger - the reader will be satisfied by the ending and won't have to go on to the next books in the series if they don't wish to continue on. I might try out the other books.
Flint Harrington is a modern day gold miner in the played-out mining town of Hallelujah, Colorado. Troubled by the unsolved death of his father in the family mine, Harrington perseveres trying to strike it rich. His father’s best friend is found dead in another mine and he no longer searches for gold but for killers.
The local sheriff reinstates Harrington to his former detective job. Flint is curious why the department terminated him in the first place and now he faces one complication after another. Welcome back.
Arches is a remarkable storyteller. His voice is clear, unhindered by poetic amusements, written by a true detective.
Someone is using several local mines to grow pot until he discovers starving dogs caged deep in the dark tunnels.
Harrington and his family are in great danger from what he believes are Russian dog-fighting gangs. If the gangs don’t kill him, the mountains will.
Using a first-person narrative, Arches provides unusual insights into mining and detective work set in the colorful and dangerous, backdrop of the rugged Colorado mountains.
Harrington closes in on his assailant in a spine-tingling four-wheel drive chase over a twelve thousand foot pass.
The author has clearly explored these great wild places of the Colorado backcountry and seen the insides of many a mine.
Some brutality. No drag-you-down drama. Lead male character is quietly religious.
Interesting storyline with with plenty of twists. Believable characters with distinct personalities. The dialogue is realistic.
I remembered a line from Abraham Lincoln: I tremble for my country when I remember that God is just.
Those two calls drained all of my energy as I sat at my roll-top desk. This was the worst part of being a cop. We constantly met people on the worst days of their lives. We had to stay formal and professional, but underneath that exterior, we grieved with them.
This is exactly why you have no business being a cop. You have all the social graces of a rabid wolf.
“The tires are new, so they have plenty of tread to wear off. The thunks are from rocks thrown up by the tires and are usually harmless. The springs should survive. But if you feel a jarring vibration and hear a loud clang, that’s real trouble. When a drive shaft or differential hits a boulder, the boulder almost always wins.”
No desire to re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.
