A truly fabulous and entertaining story from start to finish. I already knew that Denison Hatch was a great writer after reading his first book ‘Flash Crash’ (which is also definitely worth a read). He’s put together a great character with Jake Rivett, and a very entertaining and memorable plot. Detective Jake Rivett was definitely not your average cop, far from it. He specialised in undercover assignments, and being a bit of a loner, he liked to do things his own way. Jake found it easy to fit in with the underworld and criminals, even though he believed in justice and the letter of the law, he just didn’t fit the box like all the other detectives. He started out integrating himself by selling stolen goods, and building the trust through word of mouth. What really helped him was that he didn’t look or act like a cop, with his long hair and his current lifestyle. Singing in a heavy metal band and living in the Bronx certainly helped with the image he was trying to convey. His next assignment was personally going to be one of his toughest yet. A group of climbers had broken into a number of properties belonging to Arthur Metropolis, one of Seattle’s richest men. He was a self-made billionaire that started with nothing, and built up an empire of properties. The fact that he was good friends with the Mayor, made it a high priority for the police to solve, and quickly. Jake’s number one fear was heights, so this wasn’t going to be easy to go undercover with a group of climbers, and look confident. Jake’s lucky that Mona, one of the climbers takes a liking to him, and helps him out. He also has his bosses breathing down his neck wanting quick results. If you enjoy Detective Thrillers, then this is certainly a great book to add to your list.
