Mortal Outcomes by Dave Stanton

Available from:    Amazon UK    Amazon US
Bounty hunter Dan Reno never thought he’d be the prey.
When a pair of accused rapists from a New Jersey-based gang surface in South Lake Tahoe, bounty hunter Dan Reno is called in. The first is easy to catch, but the second, a Satanist suspected of a string of murders, is an adversary unlike any Reno has faced before. After escaping Reno’s clutches, in the desert outside of Carson City, the target vanishes. That is, until he makes it clear he intends to settle the score.
To make matters worse, the criminal takes an interest in a teenage boy and his talented sister, both friends of Reno’s.
Wading through a drug-dealing turf war and a deadly feud between mobsters running a local casino, Reno has to hunt a ghost-like adversary who is calling all the shots.
The more Reno learns more about his target, the more he’s convinced that mayhem is inevitable unless he can capture him quickly. He’d prefer it to be clean, without further bloodshed. But sometimes that isn’t possible, especially when Reno’s partner Cody Gibbons decides it’s time for payback.

My Review

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.
