Action/Adventure

Nobody said being a private investigator would be easy, even in a tourist town like Cairns, but now it has turned deadly. He’s a war veteran, an expert shot and if he has to, he can kill a man with his bare hands. There’s only one thing he hates more than guns and that’s other people with guns out to kill him. And then there’s the lawyer - smart, beautiful and even more dangerous than him. Life is getting complicated and he doesn’t know what he’s afraid of most: the guys with the guns, or the emotions she is stirring deep within him. This is the Sunbird Detective’s first real case and it’s a matter of life or death.

A very Australian Thriller

Great read. Loved it. Captured the Australian
atmosphere and landscape. Good dialogue, plenty of suspense, spills and thrills. My only niggle: a bit to much of 'intimacy ' in places. Imo. Otherwise a great read and would buy more from this author.

A detective story against the backdrop of a love story set in my own state of Queensland

The story was engaging and interestingly multi-layered, the action scenes played out with the detail as if I was watching them on a film or tv, and the love story that underpinned it was never far from my thoughts as the story progressed. A really nice and clever balance. Very well written and characters that really drew me to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars
What an exciting read! Similar to an Aussie version of Jack Reacher - full of exciting twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. Looking forward to the next Sunbird Detective novel, ‘Darkness’.
