BOOK 5: LOW LAKE
BOOK 6: YOUR LAST LIE
This is book 6 in the Tyrone Swift series but the books work perfectly as stand alone.
A womanising pilot is found brutally murdered in his aeroplane. The suspects are many. Greg had spent his whole life riding roughshod over women and people. He is a selfish man with no regard for feelings of others. His mother, however, thinks he is an angel and employs Swift to search for his murderer as the police had failed.
Swift’s character grows in this series his daughter’s hearing problems and the difficult relationship with Nora mean he is walking on eggshells trying not to upset people. This case, however, is going to try him to the limit of his patience as everyone seems to have it in for him.
His girlfriend, Nora, I don’t much like I think she is a bad fit for Swift she is too moody and her trust issues mean that Swift is forever monitoring what he tells her. I like her even less after reading this book.
The case is a difficult one. As a pilot the victim travelled the world and Swift finds himself having to think far and wide to find leads to follow. The complexity of the case makes for intriguing reading. Maybe it isn’t as fast paced and adrenaline pumping as I would like but it has enough to hold the reader’s attention and keep the pages turning.
There are many twists and turns along the reading journey and the uncovering of the murderer came as a real curve ball towards the end of the book.
A good read. I am pretty annoyed I didn’t find out what happened to Havanna so I am hoping I don’t have long to wait for the next book.
