Title- Gumshoe blues
Author- Paul D Brazill
Genre- crime thriller
My Rating- 4/5
It is a short crime novel based on Seatown private investigator, Peter Ord.
He was a teacher who dropped out to be a private eye.
Stories are small and decorated by intelligent descriptions if scenes and situations. There are innovative takes on common events, like wobbly finger.
Characters are multiple with story line changing for better at every page end.
Narrative is enjoyable, without
complexities and events invariably return to bars and there is a lot of booz.
He frequently uses metaphors comparing people and places with popular film and music personalities and athletes.
Dark humaor binds the cases and words like whiskey, vodka, brandy, cold, rain and farts, fly appear regularly.
Not a long boring, uselessly burdned thriller book, but short Quirky and interesting stuff you are going to like.
Conversations between characters is in captivating dialect; that keeps predictability at bay.
Thanks Blackthorn tours for reading opportunity. I look forward to read other works by the author.
