This week sees three fabulous detective novels featured on Crooked Cat Books: Nik Morton‘s indefatigable Spanish Eye; Catriona King‘s bestselling A Limited Justice; and Frances di Plino‘s gripping Bad Moon Rising!
Spanish Eye by crime and Western writer, Nik Morton, is a collection of short stories, all about private eye, Leon Cazador. Incorruptible and outspoken, Leon solves all kinds of crimes, from embezzlement, smuggling, to murder!
Through the eyes of Leon Cazador, half-English, half-Spanish private investigator, we experience the human condition in many guises.
This collection covers twenty two cases, some insightful, some humorous, and some tragic. The tales evoke tears and laughter, pleasure at the downfall of criminals, and anger at arrogant evil-doers.
Sometimes, Cazador operates in disguise under several aliases, among them Carlos Ortiz Santos, a modern day Simon Templar; he is wholly against the ungodly and tries to hold back the encroaching night of unreason. Cazador translated into English means hunter. In his adventurous life he has witnessed many travesties of justice; he is a man driven to hunt down felons of all kinds, to redress the balance of good against evil.
Leon Cazador fights injustice in all its forms and often metes out his own rough justice. It’s what he does.
A Limited Justice is the first in Catriona King‘s bestselling crime series set in Belfast.
When a body is discovered at a petrol station, Belfast D.C.I. Marc Craig is called to investigate. Within a day, a second body is found. Then a third. This time, it’s personal.
It’s someone he knows.
With time against him, Craig desperately tries to piece the case together, but will he find the suspect before anyone else is killed?
A Limited Justice is the first in a crime series set in 21st century Belfast, Northern Ireland, featuring Detective Chief Inspector Marc Craig.
If you haven’t discovered Frances di Plino‘s gripping crime series featuring Detective Inspector Paolo Storey, it’s about time you did – beginning with Bad Moon Rising! Fans of dark, psychological thrillers won’t be disappointed…
