Book Review-The Inside Passage-Carl Brookins

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Having read and enjoyed 2 of Carl Brookins novels before I knew I wanted to read this one. It is a totally different style from those two, The Case of the Yellow Diamond (see my review here) and The Purloined Painting (see my review here). This is an adventure, mystery thriller with multiple twists and turns-one you won't want to put down! I know I couldn't and didn't-I read it in one sitting. It does start a bit slowly but watch out--it picks up speed very quickly!! I definitely recommend this book!! Now i want to read the other 2 books in this series.

It is the story of one man’s successful effort to find justice and peace after the murder of his wife and her friend by ruthless gun runners.

My brother-in-law lives up near that region so I can visualize the setting. Sounds like a beautiful location for a story, even if things do get deadly.
