Review

Hannibal Jones: Russian Roulette - And what a game it is Hannibal Jones: confident, sly, the thinking man s troubleshooter, faces off against the Russian mob, if only he can figure out who the players are and who s fighting whom... Russian Roulette delivers a whipsaw of a plot with more layers than a Vidalia onion.... Camacho gets it right with solid storytelling and compelling characters, all set in the off-beat neighborhoods of the Nation s Capital... Don t miss it! --Libby Fischer Hellmann, Author of the Ellie Foreman mystery/suspense series

By Christopher D. Hober on June 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
A guy walks into a bar, looks up and down the deli menu and he'd like a ham and cheese on rye and an open-faced detective. Bartender says the only rye he's got is in a bottle, but as to the open-faced detective? Hannibal Jones is right there in the corner, nursing a vodka and coffee...and several bruises.

"Russian Roulette" was my first brush with Hannibal Jones and the thing about the character that immediately struck me was his completely open and straightforward approach to a case. No Sherlock Holmes here folks, as Hannibal is not a master of deduction. If Hannibal wants to know something, he simply goes to the individual, tells them what he is about and asks for information. And while a couple of buxom manipulating dames are included in the tradition of any good detective story, he's no booze, broads and bullets dick in the style of Mike Hammer either. One could liken him, perhaps, to a steely black pinball with shades bouncing where his leads take him throughout the D.C. beltway and beyond.

That brings up one fun aspect of the story. You never know what interesting locations you might discover while searching out clues. After reading the story, I found myself wanting to check out a couple of the sites introduced therein. Another thing I discovered while reading "Russian Roulette" was that I really liked Hannibal Jones, so much so that I was willing to become invested in his personal life and get emotionally involved when both his girlfriend Cindy and Hannibal's relationship with her are threatened.

This was a good read, and one could deduce the mystery if reading carefully. Now that I have been introduced to Hannibal, I think that I'll go check out some of his earlier case files.

My rating 4.75 out of 5

This is a fast paced, twisting mystery! If you like the Alex Cross series by James Patterson you will like this series as well!

The writing is tight and crisp with a tone perfect for a private investigator mystery. In addition to the solid mystery, the author does a wonderful job with background descriptions including details of the smells and sights surrounding Hannibal.

This was my first Hannibal Jones read but won't be my last. Although it is part of a series I found it was fine to jump into this book. It is a very good PI mystery thriller!

In RUSSIAN ROULETTE, Austin S. Camacho's latest Hannibal Jones mystery, the thrills start on page one and never let up!
Hannibal is being forced to dig up the facts on a wealthy and well-connected Algerian who is set to marry the daughter of a deceased big wig within the Russian mob! Her old flame, Aleksandr Ivanovich (an enforcer for the same group of 'gentlemen') needs to know if his beloved will be cared for the way he thinks she deserves. To insure Hannibal's cooperation, Alexander gives an ultimatum: Protect the love of my life or lose yours! Given no choice, Hannibal sets out to get the information on a man who may not be at all what he seems!
All the while, Hannibal's girlfriend Cindy is unaware she is in any danger and is busy looking for her dream house she wants to share with Hannibal--but is he ready for that kind of commitment? Add in the fact that Cindy has a lot more money than Hannibal and his male ego may be getting in the way of his lifetime of happiness with the woman he loves. But before he can make any commitments, he has to save her life--without her even knowing about it.
In RUSSIAN ROULETTE, Hannibal gets to do what Hannibal does best--kick butt and take names--and he never even gets a scratch on those signature Oakleys!
This is hands-down and by far the BEST Camacho novel YET! The pacing is fast, the action is heart-pounding and Mr. Camacho's word choice is sublime! The pictures he paints with words are worthy of the term MASTERPIECE!
If you're only going to read one thriller this year--make it RUSSIAN ROULETTE, but read it TWICE!

A compelling PI, Hannibal Jones is the main character of this mystery. Like Raymond Chandler's Phillip Marlowe he is always after the truth and has a soft spot in his heart for vulnerable women. The mystery has layers, the original job, ordered at gun-point, that of discovery of the identity of the fiancé of the employer's love interest, is not the mystery that is ultimately solved. And before it is over murder is committed several times. Even when there is no money in it, Hannibal Jones is not satisfied until the truth is brought to light. This Pi is extremely likable, the story is fast paced, and toward the end I could not put it down

The Hannibal Jones books just get better and better. In the beginning I wasn't too sure about this one. Mr. Camacho states in the first chapter that his friends and neighbors--Sarge, Virgil and Quaker--wouldn't be helping him on this case. My first thought was "Oh No!" but it was great without them. The tangle of Russian, Algerian, Liberian and Moroccan characters were interesting, the plot was excellent and it was a rough and tumble as the first four books. Don't miss it!
