This is a “Rapid Reads”, a paperback of 168 pages written in huge font, a novella that is not taxing and is mainly aimed for the enjoyment of young people 16 years of age and up. It is also the perfect book for readers with a short attention span and for those who like to zipped through the pages in no time and enjoy a fast-paced mystery.
As all the “Rapid Reads” I have read to date the plot is well-written with no fuss and no extra-words to bog down the flow. The story in “Love and Fear” centers on the main character, a gutsy PI with a big heart. Gulliver is asked to help find the daughter of a New York head Mafioso who has gone missing. The plot has all the good elements wrapped in a few words and enough twists to pique our interest. The story is intriguing although I knew being a short story the character or plot development would be at the bare minimum. Having said this, the story is nevertheless captivating and one I enjoyed quite a bit.
I received an advance copy from Orca Book Publishers for an honest review. My thoughts have not been influenced by the offer, “This is the way I see it”.
He is hired by a mob enforcer to find the daughter of the enforcer's boss. Gulliver knows and respects both men, but does not like either of them. They know something about Gulliver's sister's murder.
Gulliver is very good at what he does. How he solves this case leads to a satisfying ending. This book is a solid 4 out 5 stars.
