Another intriguing addition to the collection courtesy of a generous publisher. Another new author to discover.
Harry wants out. The daily grind has ground him down and his dreams are fading fast. Desperate times call for desperate measures and as a last-ditch resort he fakes his own death to claim on the insurance planning to set himself up on Easy Street. Wife Lena has her doubts. Harry’s always had a hand in the hustle, but going for broke was never his style. She goes along for the ride just to see how far he’ll take it, down Mexico way, returning “widowed” and soon-to-be wealthy, waits out the weeks till they can reunite. Only Harry sounds funny on the phone. And she knows how he gets when he’s been drinking. Then there’s the irreversible nature of death to consider. Harry’s scheme is seamless but the schemer has a flaw, and instead of getting what he wants might just get what he deserves.

Confession time. Tom Barber is one of those authors (and there are more than a few) whose books I seem to buy but never actually read. This is the 3rd in a series of 12 so far. I hope to get to them one day!

A blood-soaked body in a basement
A high-ranking police officer with dark secrets
A town full of suspects
And Jack Lisbon, a detective who stops at nothing to uncover the truth.
When a prominent pool hall owner is found brutally slain in his own home, Yorkville's Criminal Investigation Branch swoops into action.
The Assistant Commissioner of Police is piling the pressure on Detective Lisbon and his team. With suspicions the crime has links to terrorism and a meeting of world leaders about to kick off, solving the case is now an urgent priority.
But is the killer really linked to a terrorist organization? Or does the homicide have nothing to do with national security at all?
With the line of suspects stretching out the door, Jack and his partner Detective Claudia Taylor must pull out all stops to unravel this baffling crime.
Can Jack Lisbon solve the case in time to avert a disaster? Or will the Trick Shot mystery snooker him completely?
If you’re a fan of fast-paced thrillers by James Patterson, David Baldacci and Tess Gerritsen, action-packed Trick Shot will keep you reading into the night.
