The Wrong Side of a Gun is the first book I read of David Grace and I was intrigued. Deputy U.S. Marshal Virgil Quinn excels at finding people and he thrills at hunting them down. But when his wife takes his daughter, he realizes he has been out maneuvered. He hunts for them for years to no avail.
About the same time he loses his wife his partner decides to take a job in Chicago. This turns his world upside-down, but drives him to spend more time hunting criminals. Then Virgil works a case that involved women being raped and killed who would be close to his daughter, Nicole’s, age he is videoed getting into an attorney’s face over his client disappearing. This moves him from California to Detroit, and unknowingly, closer to his daughter.
What I particularly like about this book is that it is realistic. No breaks of outrageous fortune, but rather good solid police work, coupled with security camera footage etc. Quinn's major contribution over and above good police work is to put his mind in the mind of the felon, and work out what the felon is likely to do, given the circumstances. Also, Quinn and his other policemen seem human, which leads to a gripping story because you do not have to suspend disbelief. Highly recommended.
One thing I especially enjoyed about this novel was the descriptions of the police work and department. No part of the plot seemed overly dramatic or cheesy to try to grab your attention. Everything flowed very well and each character had development and a purpose. I also particularly enjoyed the “bad” characters.
Overall, I rated this 5 stars because I could not put it down and it made me want to read another David Grace thriller. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys well thought-out crime thrillers.
I also like the fact that, with one exception, his books don't contain the same hero's. Each book stands on it's own, with excellent stories and characters you grow to care about, or hate, or both.
Do yourself a favor and read this, can't imagine you'll be disappointed...
I liked the plot very much. I like nothing more than to be engrossed in a good book, and this happened to me with “The wrong side of a gun”. I read it from cover to cover in just a few days although it is quite long.
The story is easy to follow and the characters are well developed. The story plot is believable and realistic. Grace’s writing style was quite good and I would like to keep on reading more of his works.
I would highly recommend reading this good suspense novel by David Grace. I enjoyed it from the very beginning to its end.
