Detective Inspector Andy Ross and Detective Sergeant Izzie Drake, with their great understanding of each other’s thought processes, grow in strength with every book. The banter between them, and the easy going form of their working relationship adds lustre to the story. These are people you can see in your mind and imagine their conversations actually taking place. I love D.C. Derek McLennan, who perhaps most of all has developed from a young, inexperienced detective in the first book to become one of D.I. Ross’s most trusted team members. The interaction between all the detectives is just so realistic, their humour in the face of some of the not so nice things they encounter is superb. It takes some doing to write such dialogue, a real triumph for the author.
The story itself begins uncharacteristically in the heat of the Brazilian rainforest and soon we find ourselves aboard the Alexandra Rose where we find something like a locked door mystery, except it’s a locked cabin on a ship. Things soon go pear shaped for the investigators as a crewman is added to the dead, and before we know it, the bodies begin to pile up as we are taken to the heart of the Amazon rainforest where murder and mayhem ensue. The author cleverly moves from one part of this story to another as a potential terrorist threat is uncovered and then the horrors of people smuggling and sex trafficking raise their ugly heads. With two young women being abducted, Ross and Co. face a race against time to .find them before they too join the ranks of modern day slavery. There’s barely time to draw breath in this terrific episode in the Mersey Mysteries. Can’t wait for the next one, and a definite 5 stars for this one.
The Alexandra Rose had sailed into the Mersey Estuary which was shrouded in dense, dank fog. Due to weather reports it would be anchored there until the fog rose, which would be a couple of days. The passengers are a bit unhappy for the delay in landing and now they have to contend with a death. A death that will surely turn out to be something other than natural.
Author Brian L. Porter has taken me on a ride that goes from the Alexandra Rose with its crew and passengers to the Amazon where the search for a natural cure for cancer is taking place. As I read, I'm sure there has to be a connection, but what? As the deaths start mounting up, so does my puzzlement as to the connection. It appears to be two whole stories within one book. Then... he brings it together, taking me by surprise and making me wonder why I didn't see it earlier.
As always, Porter has written yet another book that will have you turning the pages as he keeps you in suspense of the actual plot and who the bad guys actually are.
