Moran is a man of many layers. He has health issues which don't seem to deter him in his investigations. He's honest and upstanding and he has a line he won't cross ..even though he comes close from time to time. He's a bit of a loner, having no woman in his life ..although there are several who have an eye on him.
Secondary characters pop in and pop out, always leaving behind an impression of their importance to the story. Some are exactly what you see ... some are anything but. There are always lies and secrets to swim through to get at the truth.
Although this author has written other books, it is this series which caught my eye and my attention. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys re-visiting the 70s and takes pleasure in crime fiction.
The storytelling itself is good, the characters compelling. I would love to meet them again in a follow up novel! But please, Mr Hunter, keep the body count down.
I enjoyed the reference to the 1960s/70s rock culture. I also enjoyed the excursion into life in England, landscape, people, traditions.
Keep the novels coming!
Black December: 3 Stars. Not too bad a book but I thought the body count was excessive and there were aspects of the book that weren't plausible.
Creatures of Dust: 3 Stars. Not a bad plot, but the body count was way too high to be at all realistic.
Death Walks Behind You. 3.5 stars. I thought this book was a bit better than the first two. The format is one used often in mysteries when two different and mostly unrelated stories are told by alternating between them.
