Book Review-The Boat Man: A Suspense Thriller (A Reed & Billie Novel Book 1) -Dustin Stevens

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

A detective who wants nothing to do with people anymore--His new partner is a K-9 who was originally trained by the armed forces--this is a highly trained dog who is very tired with being left in the car while she is supposed to be protecting Reed. They both have to get used to each other!

Horrendous murders are beginning to mount up on the poor side of town and Reed is roped into helping along with his partner Billie. They finally find a common thread and Reed begins to piece it all together. There is someone high up in the ranks who has been hiding something----Billie, once she sniffs a scent never forgets it--and when Reed tells her to hold the person she does! I think Billie is my favorite character in this novel!

There is a lot of action in here and I know I will be reading another in this series.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Detective Reed Mattox, just three months removed from the death of his partner, has turned invisibility into an art form.

Switching to the K-9, taking over the graveyard shift, moving to a farmhouse miles outside of Columbus, his every move has become predicated on putting as much distance between himself and the outside world as possible.

That distance is shattered though when bodies begin turning up in The Bottoms, the poverty-stricken section of town he is assigned to patrol. Grisly, horrific scenes start to pop up in the middle of the night and the overburdened precinct has no choice but to put Reed on it.

Now operating far outside of his comfort zone with a Belgian Malinois for a partner that attracts attention wherever they go, Reed is forced to unravel the murders, taking him clear across the city and back years in time, to an event that some very influential people will do anything to keep buried...
