Private investigator Gus Keane is back with a difficult new case to solve
With his ex-wife appearing back on the scene and relations with his girlfriend Marti troubled, the murder of one of Gus Keane's colleagues comes at a really bad time. Yet when his friend Jimmy is accused of the murder, he really must step up to the plate. With his knowledge of the local area, and a healthy suspicion that nothing anyone says is true, private investigator Keane must find the killer before Jimmy is convicted.
Ex rugby player turned social worker Gus Keane supplements his retirement fund with amateur detective work. And the crime-hit deprived areas of outer Manchester provide a fair amount of case work.

When Tim Greenhoff is found dead and under mysterious circumstances, Gus, who doesn't seem to be a very active Private investigator still takes on the case, the story follows a path with a few strange twists and turns. I found this to be a quick read and one that I think readers will enjoy.
The third in the Gus Keane series, and I think the best one yet. Very fast-paced and to the point, it's gritty without being depressing and exciting without being far-fetched. You could read it as a stand-alone but I would recommend reading the first two in the series first.
