Review from the Book Faerie,
This review is from: The Last Witness (Mass Market Paperback)
Lou is flabbergasted when they haul his friend Blue out of the tavern Blue owns saying he's committed murder. The only thing worse is that one of the arresting officers is Harry, the cop he thinks of as his father...
The author sent me a copy of his ebook for review (thank you). I've read his work before and it's good, so I was looking forward to reading this story, too. I wasn't disappointed.
Blue used to be a cop but ended up resigning when he shot an unarmed woman during a drug raid. His ex-partner, Harry, still thinks he got a get out of jail free card and resents him. Lou has his office above the bar and is operating on his own after his last office job almost cost him his life. Blue says he didn't do it, so Lou is representing him and pitting himself against Harry. You can feel the conflict and torment of the characters, as well the hurt because they fighting each other.
The victim had blackmail material on EVERYBODY. He was a major slimeball that enjoyed having a form of control over his enemies. Everyone Lou talks to wants his or her file destroyed. This is a can of worms where someone took has removed the lid; there can be no happy ending here when everyone's life and happiness is being threatened.
There's action, violence, psychological suspense and more in the pages of this book. I read it quickly and enjoyed it. Why not give it a try yourself? Just takes a minute to download it and you can follow Lou through the sludge in his town as he looks for the murderer.
