Paying the Piper is a sequel to Hamelin's Child, and is as riveting as its predecessor, but for very different reasons. If you felt badly for all Michael went through before, your heart will ache for all that comes next.
The tension ramps up to an almost intolerable level, but our Michael has developed a strong will to overcome. He may not know what he wants to do with his life, but he sure as hell wants to have some say in the matter.
I'm not going to say more, because I don't want to spoil a single thing for any reader. Let me just say... 5 stars for staying up all night reading, reading, barely breathing. Once again, I will be thinking about Michael for days to come.
seriously Michael should have stayed home especially on his birthday.He may see that women are the catalyst to his life being so messed up but it looks like wrong decision making at a weak point is more the culprit. A letter is the first step over the cliff this time.
As his recent past turmoil is still smacking him around ,he meets Amanda which puts a spotlight on him he really didn't need.He sees her as the reason things go quickly wrong but really the true reason is the stuff of his nightmare beginning with Eddie is far from over. There is still 'people' wanting to shut him up.
Amanda has messed her life up with a bad decision and as she scrambles to figure out what to do,she meets Michael who wants to help her which puts them entangled together as Michael's story continues.
Lenny comes off as a slick gangster type with a 'loyalty' of a sort to those in the business.He is oddly likable and he takes on being Michael's co-savior with Amanda. And yup, I just bought book 3.
Michael tries to help Amanda but the pair become unwittingly embroiled in his past.
Shady characters emerge from the woodwork and a trip to Wilmslow leaves Amanda alone and Michael at the mercy of his captors with a price on his head to the highest bidder.
There are heart-stopping moments where Michael tries to escape and I sat up last night until I finished this but I'm giving no more away. You have to buy it and read it for yourself. Gripping and well-written and I loved the local-to-me locations this book is set in.
We pick up the story with Michael in post-traumatic limbo following on from the repercussions of the sex trafficking ring and his imminent trial. By chance he meets Amanda, and their problems become almost one as he endeavors to help her track down her missing child with the help of dirty money. But the shadows of his past close in on him and Michael finds himself trapped, drugged and kidnapped, and sold on!
The story is about Amanda too, who finds herself implicated in the drugs ring. Brilliant characters and the plotting is tense and tight and builds to a dramatic climax.
And I know it's wrong, but I kind of fancied Lenny.
Michael Redford has not only done a lot of growing up, he's also grown stronger in the few months since the first book of the series, Hamelin's Child. The tightly woven plot will keep you reading, and the characters will keep you guessing as the line between the good guys and the bad guys blurs.
