In trouble? PI Ray Dudgeon is the man to help

 

It’s happened to you hasn’t it? You’re all set to get into a murder mystery book or crime thriller and realize you’ve read it before. Damned frustrating isn’t it? It just happened to me with Trigger City.

I read it again. Sean Chercover is so good and so smooth. He throws irony, humor and sarcasm into hard-boiled with ease.

 

Chercover writes the type of page turners with in-depth characters that are lacking in some books. I call those beach books written for an ADD world. They have their place but I’d rather dive and swim than surf.

The  protagonist is disenchanted reporter turned Private Investigator Ray Dudgeon. When Dudgeon gets involved bones are broken and blood flows. He’s also compassionate, kind and resourceful.

Big City Bad Blood – Dudgeon is hired as a bodyguard for Hollywood locations manager Bob Loniski who’s a prosecution witness against a member of the mob. Chercover mixes blackmail, Hollywood intrigue, and big trouble with the Chicago Outfit.

Trigger City  murder mystery crime fiction private investigator

 

Trigger City – Dudgeon takes on a case from a man who is grieving the death of his daughter. A woman who lived a quiet life she was employed by a political contractor and was killed by her co-worker. Lots of para-military types, Washington intrigue and threatening behaviour. Also the continuation of a love story from the previous book but stands alone.

Winner, Best Novel: IMBA Dilys Award, Crimespree Award

Shortlisted for: Anthony Award, Barry Award, Macavity Award

 

 

 

I’m not sure why I haven’t written about Chercover before now. I think it’s the sheer volume of reading material that at times, makes you forget about books you already have in your library. Not to mention the waiting for the next in the series.

Buy, read, enjoy.

    Realizing I’ve read book before happens to me more with ereading than with hard cover. Maybe because I don’t repeatedly see the cover. It is great, when the book is so good you have to read it again 🙂

      It’s happened to me with paperback when they create a new cover to re-release a book. Five pages in and you know you’ve made a re-purchase.
      Thanks for dropping by Kristina always good to hear from you.

    A few weeks a go I began a new book, only to suspect I had read it before. However, something was amiss. It didn’t seem quite the same. The book in question was a Lee Child “Jack Reacher” novel. A semi-de ja vu experience. Then a little light came on and I rushed to the computer to check out a possible explanation. Yes, it was the very book that was the basis for the Tom Cruise movie “Jack Reacher” . That explained the discrepancies. Aaahhhh.

    Sounds like the movie followed the book pretty closely or you have a very good memory
