Killing Hope: Keith Houghton

“I’ve been around the block enough times to recognize a turkey in a chicken coop when I see one.”

 

 

 

Yes, that’s the kind of prose that can grab me and like all writing it’s the honesty of delivery that counts. Gabe Quinn returns to the job after the death of his wife and tries hard to live down his “celebrity cop” tag which came from solving a case that took him to Las Vegas.

He is assigned the job of tracking down the serial killer known as The Undertaker who taunts Quinn with his capacity for cruelty. He’s tasked with stopping this killer while still grieving for his wife and dealing with his adult children.  On top of this he searches for the killer known as The Maestro.

The plot development is non-stop with several leads to follow that brings you to stellar ending. I didn’t see it coming. While some of Keith Houghton’s writing takes you close to the edge of disbelief he doesn’t push you over and that works for me.

One man wants revenge …
One man wants to even the score…
Only one will succeed …

I’ve also read Houghton’s second book in this series which has Quinn living in SW Florida, trying to move forward with his life in the only way he can. As it turns out it doesn’t involve much down time.
