The Story: Ex-Insurance investigator Sam Lucas has his world turned up side down when his wife is killed in a hit and run accident, A phone call claiming she was murdered, sends him on a roller coaster ride to discover the truth.
When another girl turns up dead he is plunged into the seedy world of gangsters, greed and drugs. Will his dead wife’s past lead him to find the answers, who can he trust? and how far is he willing to go?
Review by Fiona Edwards: I have to start by saying if you’re not totally sucked into this story by the forth paragraph there is possibly something wrong with you.
I am so sick of books that I’m forced to read up to 100 pages before I go ‘oh, that’s why everyone else said they loved it’. Not the case here. There were just enough twists and turns to keep me wondering just where the author was leading me.
New characters were introduced at a nice steady pace so I wasn’t left wondering who was who and with enough background and influence on the story to know why the author introduced them at all. I really enjoyed meeting Sam Lucas. He’s not perfect and I like that in a protagonist. He’s smooth, good looking, smart, good at what he does, drinks and smokes too much and occasionally thinks with the wrong part of his anatomy.
This is one of those can’t put down books and it’s refreshing to learn that it was Tom Immins’ first novel. Makes me think stories about Sam Lucas will just get better and better.
Review by First Time Mom: From the first two pages I could not stop reading. I would sneak in a few pages in lines at the grocery, or while my son was napping. Tom Immins has great character development, with great twists and turns!
Review by Kay Jones: Fast paced thriller, well written, very hard to put down. well worth a read. I am looking forward to the next Sam Lucas book
