FALLING MORE SLOWLY
In this new series, Det. Liam McLusky is both a sad and funny character. His humor is very much dry British humor and doesn’t allow him to take his life too seriously. However, all the grim reality of modern police work is brought out. The book is slow in places but enjoyable overall with a good mystery.
Detective Liam McLusky has been transferred from Southampton to Bristol. He is still recovering from a major injury from a former case and the break up with his serious girlfriend. His apartment is bare and depressing. On the first day his relatively new police car is ruined in a domestic situation as a man destroys his home with a backhoe. His reputation of a determined detective plays out as he and his assistant search for the maker of explosive devices that kill or maim anyone who picks them up. (SOHO, Jan., 304 pp., $25.00)
