Title: The Detriment (Book 2 in the DI Jake Flannagan series)
Author: David Videcette
Release Date: 29th June 2017
Rating: 5 stars
'The Detriment' is the eagerly awaited second book in David Videcette's DI Jake Flannagan series. With short, punchy chapters, the action moves along at a cracking pace and if anything this second outing is even more thrilling than the first.
DI Jake Flanagan is back and, along with his trusty sidekick Lenny, is investigating an attack on Glasgow airport, car bombs outside a nightclub and the apparent suicide of a spy. As with 'The Theseus Paradox', this book combines fact with fiction, but how much of either is up to the reader to decide.
Still not one to play by the rules, Jake is a flawed character with a bit of a 'bad boy' image, but is also one that you can't help but fall in love with. His struggle with the events of his past is even more apparent in 'The Detriment', and the emotional turmoil he goes through shows a very human side, something I'm sure will be explored even further in future instalments.
There are twists and turns aplenty throughout this book and it takes you on a thrilling rollercoaster of a ride that keeps you enthralled right up until the final page has been turned. David Videcette has proved yet again that he really is a writing force to be reckoned with. An exhilarating 5 stars.
