Mortal Outcomes by Dave Stanton
This is Book 3 in the Dan Reno series. I read book 1 but not book 2 so I can confirm they work very well as stand-alone.
Dan Reno is a Private Investigator and also Bounty Hunter. He is often helped out by ex cop Cody Gibbons. The pair make quite a formidable team and balance each other out perfectly. There is a little humour in the background which I like and I love their characters which are developing well.
Dan Reno is on the hunt for a man who skipped bail. This is a dangerous, evil man but just how dangerous they are yet to find out. As always, the hunt puts them in danger and also on the wrong side of 2 bent coppers. The fact that they are caught in the middle between the villains and the corrupt policemen who are worried Dan and Cody will cut of their supplementary income wont bother them too much.
The book moves along at a steady pace but I find it a little too descriptive and that lost it a few marks.
