The PI tackles his most difficult case yet...
Private Investigator Gus Keane is enjoying the quiet life when two events transpire to disrupt the peace. A man turns up on his doorstep claiming to be his half-brother, and a body is found in a local Salford street.
Suddenly having to question his family history, Keane arranges a DNA test pretty damn quick. Not least because his new-found brother seems very much involved in the criminal fraternity.
Meanwhile, through an acquaintance, Keane gets involved in the case of the dead man. Helping the police establish his identity, he draws a blank when it comes to the motive for the killing.
Despite his in-depth local knowledge, Keane feels increasingly out of his depth, worried that he’s lost his touch...
STEALING TIME is the fifth book by Bud Craig to feature Private Investigator Gus Keane. It can be enjoyed on its own or as part of the series.
All of the books in the series are available free with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback. The first three books are available as a collected edition exclusively on Kindle, titled SALFORD MURDERS.
This is Bud Craig at his exuberant best, creating a cast of characters each of which has something to hide and is prepared to bend or break the rules in order to preserve the secret.
The story gallops along and is blessed with twist after twist which keep you guessing until the final pages.
Add to that many passages of excellent dialogue that leap off the page and a strong sense of place and you have a thoroughly enjoyable read.
Stealing Time is a delight from a writer who is operating at the top of his game.
