The Next One Will Kill You: An Angus Green Novel by Neil S. Plakcy

If Angus Green is going to make it to a second case, he’s needs to survive the first one.

Angus wants more adventure than a boring accounting job, so after graduating with his master’s degree he signs up with the FBI. He’s assigned to the Miami field office, where the caseload includes smugglers, drug runners, and gangs, but he starts out stuck behind a desk, an accountant with a badge and gun.

Struggling to raise money for his little brother’s college tuition, he enters a strip trivia contest at a local bar. But when he’s caught with his pants down by a couple of fellow agents, he worries that his extracurricular activities and his status as the only openly gay agent will crash his career. Instead, to his surprise, he’s added to an anti-terrorism task force and directed to find a missing informant.

It’s his first real case: a desperate chase to catch a gang of criminals with their tentacles in everything from medical fraud to drugs to jewel theft. With every corner in this case—from Fort Lauderdale’s gay bars to the morgue—turning to mayhem, Angus quickly learns that the only way to face a challenge is to assume that he'll survive this one—it’s the next one that will kill him.

Angus Green is a brand new rookie FBI agent and he's just itching to get his first field assignment. A waiter from a gay bar that Angus frequents contacts the FBI to share the information he has about a possible homeland security threat. When the waiter disappears, the FBI believes this threat to be very credible. The powers that be turn to Angus and add him to the task force under supervision by two of FBI's finest. At last he has his chance! Being gay, his FBI mentors feel that he would be more apt to blend in in order to investigate the waiter and any of his friends. From a possible threat, to murder, to a jewelry heist, he's determined he will at least be the best FBI Agent he can. He surprises himself ..and his mentors... with his superb investigating skills. Angus is a different kind of hero. He's young, only 26, he's a redhead and blushes oh so easily, but he is so willing to jump in the trenches. He has a brother who may or may not be in legal trouble and a roommate that knows a few bad guys. I think the author tried to add some humor along the way ... some of it worked...some of it didn't. This is certainly not a hard boiled mystery. Supposedly this is first in a series yet to come. I'm not sure Angus can stand up as an interesting enough series character. Many thanks to the author / Diversion Publishing / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
