Many thanks to Emma and damppebbles blog tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was completely a different novel with British humor and slang. A police procedural, the story showed the workings of an investigative team, quite a change from what is normally shown. Jack was the DI in charge who was somewhat of an idiot savant and was known to solve crimes which seemed unsolvable.

My first book by Pete Adams, he has written a larger than life, yet quite real, main character Jack as the DI was quite a decent chap with a wicked sense of humor. He was not terribly coordinated so accident prone was his middle name perhaps. He was strong and vulnerable. A good team he led which made the book read fast.

I was initially completely overwhelmed with the writing. The characters took time to settle down in my mind. Too many nicknames given to them by Jack didn’t help too. Once the pages turned, the glimmer of the story soon was revealed and the missing kids made for a great plot arc.

The book had politics and investigation, fun and romance, buckets of British humor and a main character who was strong and not afraid of departmental politics well supported by his team and dog, Austin Martin.

Recommended for those who enjoy a wicked British humor.

I received a free ARC from Emma and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

A self-labeled enigma, Detective Inspector Jack Austin is at once miserable and amusing, melancholy and motivated. Running the Community Police Unit from his deck chair, D.I. Austin is known for his ability to solve crimes out of the blue.

Trying to work cases while struggling with his mental issues, Austin deals with a variety of major crimes, including bicycle theft. But when the case of an executed police officer lands on his desk, he accidentally uncovers a malevolent scheme.

Can he discover who is behind it all – and keep what’s left of his sanity?
