Escape: One killer. Five victims. Who will be next? (A Black Book Thriller 3)
About this deal
As Chicago PD’s special-ops leader, Detective Billy Harney knows well that money is not the only valuable currency. I didn't realise it was book 3 in a series and I haven't read the previous books but I don't think that took away from the story.
The biggest and most dangerous gang in Chicago, the Nations, was run by a man the cops wanted desperately to take down. One that involves being the lead for a task force focused on a major gang bust, taking down Jericho Hooper, the leader of the Imperial Gangster Nation, the biggest and most powerful street gang in Chicago.It looks like the ending of this book sets up another book in the series and I for one will be picking it up. He is the creator of unforgettable characters and series, including Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Jane Effing Smith, and Maximum Ride, and of breathtaking true stories about the Kennedys, John Lennon, and Princess Diana, as well as our military heroes, police officers, and ER nurses.
It was a detective story of Billy Harney, who survives a shooting with his girlfriend and partner while investigating corrupt government officials and police officers in Chicago. Billy Harney is a new addition to my roster of Favorite Detectives in Literature and book 3 did not disappoint. While the case ramps up, Harney cannot help but find distraction in his personal life, which could prove detrimental, but also somewhat necessary.
The ending was also set up like there might be a book 4 in the future so will definitely keep an eye out for that. He’s mind candy – simple, fast-paced, detective and mystery-oriented adventures that can be read in about two to three days and easily left behind.
