I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway from Amazon Publishing, Brilliance Publishing and Damien Boyd, on February 3, 2015. Thank you so much for allowing me to read this novel! Nick Dixon is an interesting and likable DI recently moved from a large city police force to that of a small community. This is a complex story that stayed elusive for me until the last chapter, and I found it a fast read with a friendly personality and well rounded characters. I would not have thought it to be a first novel. Well done, Mr. Boyd!

The first in the DI Nick Dixon series, and while entertaining, it doesn't get off to a blockbuster start. The beginning of the book is very full of technical climbing jargon that slows the story down and had me skipping sentences just to get to the meat of the story. This isn't a long book so having some space used up unnecessarily took away from the overall story for me.  The characters never really took root, they just existed on the page. Especially the main character who seemed very nonchalant about everything. There is much more dictating of tasks to other officers than actual crime solving going on here.  While investigating his friends possible murder, he takes time to ask a junior officer on a date. It is these kinds of inconsistencies in his character that make him hard to believe in.  I'm hoping this series gets its feet under it and starts to improve as there are two more books in this series hitting the shelves soon.

This was a rather short book at 98 pages. It is about rock climbing, or mountian climbing which seem the same. It is an English novel and was free. The author has a problem using names and nouns, on one page alone, the word "he" was used 17 times with no other name or noun in sight. This was very monotonous. For me, this was a so so book. I am not very interested in this subject and sometimes it seemed over technical. This book is rooster lit. Some violence, murder. For ages 18 and up. AD
