Read full description of the books:
First Sentence: The night sky around Asheville can play tricks on the eye.
Iraq vet, Sam Blackman, and his partner Nakayla Robertson have opened their PI business and have their first client. Elderly Ethel Barkley asks Sam to retrieve a box from her safe deposit box. Sam is disconcerted to see the box has an iron seal shaped as a swastika. Intending to deliver the box the next day, during the night, it is stolen from his office and the night guard murdered, with Ethel’s murder following soon. Were that not enough, Sam is informed he is the target of two former Blackwater employees want his fortune and his death.
Let’s start with the positives. The author does a very good job of providing enough backstory for new readers to understand the characters, and refresh the memories of those who read the previous book, without being tedious about it. His sense of place is very strong enabling the reader to experience the locations.
I always learn from reading de Castrique’s books. I had never heard of William Dudley Pelley and the Silver Legion of America and the history was fascinating.
Now the less than positive. I identified the bad guy almost from the beginning. The plot felt rather convoluted and as though the author was trying a bit too hard to make the character relevant to today’s world situation. I didn’t feel the characters connect with each other, or to me, the reader, as much as in the author’s other books, nor did the story flow as well. The humanity and quality I found in de Castrique’s undertaking series is missing.
I am hoping this book is an anomaly for the author and that he returns to form in the next.
