‘Lucas teams up with 2 friends, to make a formidable threesome, ready to take down the mechanic and anyone else that gets in the way. Will he succeed? And if he does what will be the price?’
Police detective Lucas has become consumed with tracking down the deranged killer, known as Mechanic, and bringing the murderer to justice. Nothing else matters, not even his wife. His marriage is falling apart.
Mechanic has not killed for eight months and the trail has gone cold, then Lucas receives a terrifying letter. In a desperate bid to reignite the case, he tries to convince his boss to mount an operation in Baton Rouge where the letter was posted.
But was the letter really sent by Mechanic?
Not knowing where to turn, with his marriage in turmoil and his career on the rocks, Lucas begins to spiral out of control.
When Mechanic meets the head of a drug smuggling cartel the situation takes a grave turn.
Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself.
Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?
Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?
My Rating 4.8 out of 5 stars
This is book 2 in the mechanic trilogy and I would strongly recommend they are read in order.
This book picks up where book 1 ended (and began) where Lucas has returned to work after a lengthy period of rehabilitation following events in book 1. He is feeling very fragile and disillusioned and the situation is not helped by Brassano severing all ties with him.
It is very difficult to review this book without spoiling either book 1 or this book for the readers so I will say little about the actual story. The book moves along very quickly and, as I have come to expect from Rob Ashman, there is a LOT going on and the suspense builds throughout the book with many twists and turns along the way. Expect the unexpected and be prepared for any outcome this is a psychological thriller at its best.

Complex characters that continue to develop and all are realistic with unique personalities and a human quality that some authors miss.
An awesome read. Many thanks to Bloodhound Books for the advance copy.
Rob is married to Karen with two grown up daughters. He is originally from South Wales and after moving around with work settled in North Lincolnshire where he’s spent the last twenty-two years.
Like all good welsh valley boys Rob worked for the National Coal Board after leaving school at sixteen and went to University at the tender age of twenty-three when the pit closures began to bite. Since then he’s worked in a variety of manufacturing and consulting roles both in the UK and abroad.
It took Rob twenty-four years to write his first book. He only became serious about writing it when his dad got cancer. It was an aggressive illness and Rob gave up work for three months to look after him and his mum. Writing Those That Remain became his coping mechanism. After he wrote the book his family encouraged him to continue, so not being one for half measures, Rob got himself made redundant, went self-employed so he could devote more time to writing and four years later the Mechanic Trilogy is the result.
When he is not writing, Rob is a frustrated chef with a liking for beer and prosecco, and is known for occasional outbreaks of dancing.
Rob is delighted that all three books in the Mechanic Trilogy will be published with Bloodhound Books in 2017.
Those That Remain – 22 June
In Your Name – 13 July

Rob now writes full time and has recently completed his fourth novel titled Faceless.
