Name: The Private Lie
Rating: 4.5 stars over 12 reviews
Description: It starts with a mystery…
Investigator Sam Dyke has never met his son, Daniel. Until today. And then he wishes he hadn't.
Because Daniel has a girlfriend who isn't really suitable…and, it turns out, is missing. In fact she's mixed up in a world of corruption and violence centering around the Ginger Twins—monstrous criminals who extend their crooked web from Liverpool to Manchester and all stops in between. Sam is determined to find the girl despite the odds against him—and also ignoring the fact that he's intruding on some apparently hush-hush police work…
Trying to do the right thing, Sam does what he's good at. He irritates people, especially bad guys. And not surprisingly he soon finds himself on the Twins' hit list. What can a father do—except hit back?
The Private Lie pits tough private investigator Sam Dyke against a double-threat—the Ginger Twins, and his own inability to know what's good for him.
What the reviewers have said:
"An excellent book with a seamless, breathless, pacy style. The characters had an every day feel but infused with extraordinary menace. This was my first read of a book by Keith Dixon, but most definitely not my last."
"As for the characters, Sam is awesome. I really truly like him. He struggles with relationships. He's tough, smart, resourceful, and believable. He screws up, makes mistakes, and wriggles his way out."
"Dixon grabs your attention immediately with an opening chapter designed to make you sit up and take notice, and the rest of the book makes sure that attention doesn't wander. Carefully drawn characters and an engrossing plot move things along briskly and leave the reader eager to learn more about this original situation and group of people…very satisfying."
