Once again, it’s up to Harry Starke to find out. The investigation takes him into a world he’s very familiar with, a world of affluence, privilege and… corruption.
To solve the mystery, he must deal with three murders, a beautiful used car dealer, her lovely twin sisters, and a crooked banker. Not to mention Burke and Hare, two crazy repo men who will stop at nothing to protect their employer’s interests. There’s also the matter of an ingenious, sadistic killer. But nothing is ever quite what it seems….
Harry Starke is an ex-policeman and a private investigator. Whilst playing golf with his father Harry is called to the dead body of a woman from the club. When an ex-colleague is in need of help Harry finds himself investigating a murder. Will he be able to find out who’s responsible and will it be one murder or two he needs to solve?
I would like to say that this is the first in the series I have read and also the first book by this author. I will defiantly be reading more I was hooked from the beginning. The characters are well developed and believable. The relationships Harry has with people throughout are well defined and I liked Amanda with Harry. The plot is fantastic, full of twists and turns that kept me reading until the end.
Overall it is a superb murder mystery with a great plot that kept me guessing until the end. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves a murder mystery with a twist.
