Damage Limitation: A Detective Inspector White Caper Reviews
Grab your tally sheets, DI Stewart White is on the streets again, but this time, who is chasing whom, who is dead and who is alive, and who is on which team is all part of this maze of the long arm of the law vs the masterminds of crime. Like a kaleidoscope, one turn and the picture changes, the plot twists and the players are practically stumbling over themselves as murder, money and a manhunt take DI White and his team on a danger-filled ride with more tentacles than an octopus as the past clashes with the present and a copycat murderer is muddying the waters with blood and bodies.Stewart’s life at home is becoming as stressful as his police work, as the beautiful sister of his most heinous case comes to claim her brother’s belongings and ends up with a piece of Stewart’s heart, or “something.” Meanwhile his elderly father is now a permanent fixture in his home and that adds another layer of stress and worry. But have no fear, DI White can keep several balls in the air at once, or so he thinks. Speaking of juggling, has a magician been snuffing out lives and disappearing without a trace or has he become the patsy for a far darker killer? Once again, with too much death, too many cases and too little time, DI White must pull a rabbit out of his hat and close these cases up tight. Can he do that if he may also be a target for death? Is it possible he will receive help from an unlikely source on a mission of their own?Damage Limitation is dark, edgy and filled with that special ingredient British crime/mystery authors are famous for! Let Jack Everett and David Coles pull you back into the dark and seedy world of crime and the hunt for justice through a chaotic landscape where evil thrives. Two voices, write in harmony creating mystery, mayhem and white knuckle thrills as each clue, each strand of the story become a road map to powerful mystery and suspense.I received this copy from Jack Everett in exchange for my honest review.Series: Detective Inspector White Caper -Book 2Publication Date: April 6, 2015Publisher: Barking Rain PressGenre: Mystery | ThrillerPrint Length: 305 pagesAvailable from: Amazon | Barnes & NobleReviewed for: http://tometender.blogspot.com
This one features some of the characters we got to know in Damaged Goods, and it’s another for connoisseurs of the genre: a challenging raft of characters and situations to keep track of, clues expertly hidden, well-researched locations and those signature switches between third and first person chapters which require sudden adjustments to the reader/rider’s position in the saddle. It’s as if you are watching the plot of a film unfold in the usual way, and then one of the characters looks out at you and starts to chat about things as he sees them.You will need to keep your wits about you if you are to keep track of the intricately interwoven situations – which is as it should be. Even so, there are surprises at the end! Jack Everett has a distinctive and entertaining writing style and I recommend this thoroughly as an entertaining read.
An entertaining crime story with strong characters. Particularly enjoyed Leroy as a character even though he is one of the criminals! Being English and familiar with the settings added to the enjoyment. There are multiple strands to the story to keep you on your toes and a huge twist at the end, which you won't see coming. Quite a page turner and I read it in one day. Will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good crime story.
I read and enjoyed Damaged Goods: A Detective Inspector White Caper. So I was delighted when asked to read an advanced readers’ copy of this the second novel in the series. This novel is a murder mystery and picks up a little bit after the last one ends. It can be read independently but I highly recommend reading Damaged Goods… as well, so that you become familiar with the characters and situations.In this story DI White has several events going on at once, a couple dealing with past nemeses. Concurrently he deals with murders that seem unsolvable. Will DI White live up to his middle name or not? Find out as you read to the end.I loved seeing the different viewpoints of the villains versus those who are trying to apprehend them.Warning: This book is recommended for Mature Adults due to violence, crime scenes, adult language, and sexual situations.Reviewer's note: The book must have been so new that it didn't show up on Goodreads until later thus until I saw this right now 30 Dec 2016, I hadn't posted the review I wrote on here.
