Mickey Bale, a serving police officer, is out for revenge. But it needs to be absolute; no half measures. Joe Castagna, the head of the snake responsible for the drug that killed Bale’s sister has no idea of what or, indeed, who is about to hit him.
I can understand the comparisons to Lock, stock but there’s more to this offering. Assured writing, deliverance that will have you grinning despite yourself and all served up with that uniquely London flavouring.
So, credit where it’s due, this is what British crime fiction can be and should be.
Storytelling is of a very good quality, no doubt about that, the storyline well executed with short lines, but the characters are in my view somewhat shallow and one-dimensional throughout this story.
It's a fast-paced and action-packed contemporary thriller featuring Michael (Mickey) Bale as our main protagonist.
In this adventurous thriller we'll follow Michael Bale as a Prot Officer within the Met, doing his services for King and Country, whether it is in the UK or abroad, and besides that his personal actions against a certain gangster who goes by the name of, Joe Castagna, who's responsible for the death of Michael's younger sister, Katie.
While the book contains great parts, especially concerning Michael Bale's actions and enterprises as a Prot Officer of the Met at home and abroad, there are also certain parts that are a bit too far-fetche for me, meaning to act by the law on the one side and above the law on the other, and the fact that Bale very naively will connect himself by someone or somewhat called "Nemesis" without even knowing who or what it really is.
What is to follow is a final reckoning between Michael Bale and his team of killers against those of Joe Castagna and his Gangster gang, while also an intriguing fact will be that a high-ranking Police mole will come to the forefront in this murderous thriller.
Really recommended, although this episode is a very good start, it still needs to improve in reality and believability to become a full bloodied and genuine top-class thriller series, and to come back to this book I like to call it: "A Rather Daring Jekyll & Hyde Theme Thriller"!
If you didn’t like his historical fiction you will love this.
As expected this is very well researched and some great level of detail. (The outriders using whistles, for example)
The action is fast paced, the characters have real depth and you just want to keep on reading and reading this.
The style is really cinematic, the action visceral and the dialogue utterly believable.
A bar has been set and it is pretty blooming high.
It took me a couple of dozen pages to get into Tony’s new fast-paced writing style, and then I didn’t look back. Other reviews will tell you what the book is about but, as for me, loved the plot. I enjoyed the ingenuity for the loads of different ingenious ways to kill someone (spoiler - nothing to do with swords in guts the good old fashioned Roman way), and I loved the tension and suspense, being kept waiting as to who Nemesis actually was and whether Mickey would get caught. I just kept reading and couldn’t put it down.
So, am I converted to thrillers? Probably not. But I’ll definitely converted to Riches’ thrillers and I’ll be buying the sequel to Nemesis.
