Author interview


Reed delivers exciting action, colorful heroes and villains, and seamless plots in his latest novel. Private Investigator and military veteran Clifford Dee is in deep trouble: despite his reluctance, he has accepted a job from Eustachio Bandoni, the unrelenting local mob boss. But when the case takes an unexpected turn, Clifford finds himself becoming the target of the mafia. With his envious arch-rival at his trail, Clifford must find a way out of the dangerous situation soon. And to do that he ought to find allies in the most unlikely of places. Reed’s expert spin on detective fiction and military action thriller is both imaginative and skillfully realized. Tension mounts as the intelligently crafted, tightly plotted story lines converge. Crisp, straightforward prose and authentically drawn, true-to-life characters add to the depth. There are spurts of action as well as quieter moments that provide welcome insight into the characters’ troubled inner lives. Clifford’s investigation takes multiple surprising and violent turns, with the narrative hurtling at a quick pace, compelling readers to follow to the final shocking revelation. With its intricate storyline, tense prose, and measured narrative, this fast-paced blend of action and suspense makes for a winner.
