ONE FALSE MOVE is a short story prequel to THE IMMORTALITY PLOT, featuring Mike Delaney. Delaney is an ex-cop and a member of the esoteric Brothers of Life. He is also a member of the website confess-confess. The site has as army of amateur volunteer investigators bent on exposing scams, crimes, political cover ups. Both organized crime and government departments are not happy with this website. The founder of confess-confess is Bob Messenger, Delaney's ex partner when they were both employed by the Hong Kong police. Bob and his 15-year-old daughter, Pandora, have been kidnapped by one Julius Schipp -- a man that Delaney (as the Monk) put away for grooming and abducting very young girls. Schipp is hell bent on taking Delaney down. Delaney is a great character - he's a pacifist, but will kill when he has to. He is loyal to his family and friends. Messenger is wheel-chair bound, so being held captive is mighty frustrating for him -- especially as he is helpless to protect his daughter. Delaney is on a timer ... will he find them in time? Will he be able to save his friend? Well-written, although there were a few grammatical errors, but not enough to take away my enjoyment of reading. There are several Delaney books available. For a short story, this one was full of substance and I'd like to see more of Delaney's personal history. NOTE: As of today (2/10/17) this short story is free on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Was ok, but extremely short. Jms
