Hard Job Reviews
Hard Job starts right up at the end of Done Rubbed Out. Detective Reightman’s partner, Jackson, has taken the bullet meant for Toby and has died. She is having a hard time dealing with this. Toby is still trying to deal with the death of Geri, still looking for Geri’s killer, along with being the target for an assassin. It is clear that the information in the box Geri had is hotter than they knew. But how can someone know what is on the photos that have been discovered. Something doesn’t feel right about the whole thing.I loved how this book started right after the end of Done Rubbed Out. Toby and Reightman are in shock from the death of Jackson. But they can’t stay their long since someone is bound and determined to stop the information from getting out. But they are going to have to get their game faces on because the hitman was not the real killer and someone has too much knowledge about the information Geri had.This is a fast paced thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat turning pages until the early hours. If you thought Done Rubbed Out was great, prepare yourself for an amazing sequel. This is one series you need to check out.I received Hard Job from Silver Dagger Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
(Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews with a copy provided by the publisher / author for an honest review.)Those of you who follow my reviews will recognize this book and series as going with the review I published a couple days ago. This one is the second book in the Reightman & Bailey series, and it literally picks up on a “next page” basis from the cliffhanger ending of book one. I’m actually glad that the author chose to do them as two books, even though the story continues directly into this second half. Some of you might not be up to 680 pages in one sitting, but trust me, I was. I had to force myself to go to bed last night with “only” an hour and forty five minutes remaining showing on the bottom of Kindle page. I couldn’t keep my eyes open, and realized I would be wasting such good reading on my overly tired self.So, I got to finish it today. Again, an extremely good book. We’re back to the story of Toby Bailey, Detective Melba Reightman, and the rest of the crew. Detective Reightman is struggling to get past a death that happened near the end of book one, and we aren’t any closer to finding out who killed Geri, and perhaps a few other people as well…When Geri’s killer was revealed somewhere around 50% of the way through this book, I was thinking to myself…where is it going from here? I’ll tell you where it went. It brought us to the hidden killer in the background. We readers know about John Brown, this man who has been behind the scenes, but Toby and Melba don’t know about him. When it was finally revealed who he actually is, I’ll readily admit that I hadn’t figured it out ahead of time. I was totally surprised when the author revealed the truth.Great job again Mr. Craig. I can’t wait for the next one and I’m really hoping some of the other characters are back and that the one controlling boyfriend gets over himself. I’m also hoping one of Melba’s coworkers gets exactly what’s coming to him!No more spoilers, do yourself a favor, pick up both Done Rubbed Out and Hard Job immediately. You won’t be sorry. If you have Kindle Unlimited, both are available as part of that program. Again, as with book one, please be aware that these books are not romance, so if you only like romance, give them a pass…but take my word…if you do…you’ll be missing some really, really good books!Now bring on Book Three, Skin Puppet…soon please!!! Tapping foot impatiently….
A continuation from Done Rubbed Out (Book 1), this one is even better than the first! I loved watching these wonderful characters develop even more. I didn't know who the killer was until the author told me - unusual for me since I usually have "a sense" of it. Great follow-up in the series, and waiting for the third book to be available.
The suspense was great. Just when you think you have it figured out, another twist surprises. Looking forward to future adventures of this delightful cast of characters.
