Sinossi

For Zachary Taylor it’s about to get personal...

CLOSURE sees a detective who can't let go of the past or the part he played in the murder of his old DCI. Investigating the brutal rape and murder of a young woman, whose death pulls the past into the here and now...

In 2003 Detective Chief Inspector Charlie Benner was gunned down when he and other officers were caught up in a shooting frenzy between rival drug gangs. Zachary Taylor was among the first to arrive at the bloodbath. He worked the case - desperate for a conviction - but in the end his chief suspect, James Black, and the faceless guilty walked away, sticking two fingers up at the justice system. For Taylor the case remained unsolved.

Seven years later, Taylor is investigating the murder of Stella Kerr - whose boyfriend, Steve Lamb, charged with the heinous crime had gone on the run. Taylor quickly learns that in Lamb there is a connection to the past and James Black. He believes the same dark forces responsible for the slaying of his old DCI are behind the drug fuelled murder of Stella Kerr.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very good! 10 aprile 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Zachary Taylor is a strong, believable and likable character.
The story itself carries a lot of unexpected twists and turns, these wouldn't let me put the book down as I couldn't wait to find out the end result. Overall, a very good plot and a real, good crime fiction. Anyone who is a fan of crime then this book is certainly for you.
I'm looking forward to the next in the series and more off Larry Quartley.
Highly recommend it!

4.0 su 5 stelle A promising start!! 1 marzo 2014
Di Janetski - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Closure turned out to be a good debut from an author showing great promise.

It started out with a great, powerful first chapter, which sucked me in from the start. Waivered for a few chapters, then I'm happy to say, it reeled me back in again to the finish line. Full of twists and turns, you think it's going one way, then it changes direction and goes the other.

Taylor is a very likable character, and it does make a pleasant change to come across a DCI who is not reliant on alcohol or coffee to get him through his day! Something you see a fair bit of!! Got to say I was pleased about the resolution with Taylor's girlfriend, can't say anything more without giving anything away. But it was a bit of personal satisfaction there!!

To sum up, it was an enjoyable read once I got into it, and I will be reading more from this author.

Enjoy!

4.0 su 5 stelle A very enjoyable thriller 10 febbraio 2014
Di Gabriel Boutros - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
A woman is raped and murdered in her apartment. The evidence points at her boyfriend, who promptly goes on the run, which pretty much convinces everyone involved in the case that he is guilty. But when D.I. Zachary Taylor begins to search for the wanted man he uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy that involves other police officers, a high-level drug dealer, and powerful business people.
Author Quartley has written a gripping novel, spinning a complex web of deceit that keeps the police, and the reader, guessing. His characters are compelling, and well-fleshed out, which is not an easy thing to do when writing yet another story of a rogue cop who steps on toes and breaks the rules in his search for the truth. There is a certain familiarity to many of these characters (such as the female partner who helps Taylor out despite her better judgment; the by-the-book superior officer who is constantly reining our hero in; the rich businessman with a dark secret who has locked horns with our hero in the past, to name a few archetypes), but Quartley infuses his book with enough energy and originality to make Closure a welcome addition to the genre.
He is skilled at building tension in his scenes, so that the danger that the characters are in becomes palpable. The dialogue is realistically rough, considering the many unsavoury characters that populate the story. Although the plot is full of confusing twists and turns, he keeps it moving forward, with the central mystery being revealed at just the right pace.
I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed this book, enough to almost ignore the occasional typos and sometimes haphazard punctuation, which are usually huge pet peeves for me. If the author ever cleans up his manuscript of those niggling little mistakes that interrupt the enjoyment and flow of the story, he will have a truly excellent book. But, even taking that complaint into account, I can still highly recommend this true page-turner.

5.0 su 5 stelle really loved this one 31 gennaio 2014

A great plot, developed characters, surpising bad guys, and Zach Taylor puts it all together. There better be a second book. There were some bombshells dropped at the end that had better be continued! I want to know.

That's it, I don't do reviews where you feel you've already read it. Take a look at the sample. It does a good job getting you into it.
You will want to read this one.

4.0 su 5 stelle Closure - a good thriller/action story. 21 gennaio 2014
Di Frenchie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
I hesitated between a 3 and a 4, I really wish we could have half star, because there is a lot of swearing and I do not like swearing. Ok, I can deal with a 'normal' amount, but in Closure, there is a lot.
I have to say this nearly spoiled my reading. But this is me and I do not think I should penalise a book for something I do not like, when it is a way of writing and the story is fine. And I guess by the time I arrived to the end, I got used to it.

That is for the negative. Now, for the good points.

Closure is a good suspense thriller. There is quite a good story in there. The beginning leads very quickly to a very gory and distressing scene, but we have after a bit of a calm. It took me a while to understand what the author did, he gave us clues little by little and all along the book. But be aware then, not to jump too fast to conclusions, as I did with the DNA testing. I found it strange there was no DNA report. But then, the DNA situation is explained later in the book and this what I have liked , that we are not spoon fed the story, we have to work it out

Zackary Taylor, the main protagonist, is a policeman with a 7 year grudge with one of the rich man of the country, whom he thinks is bent. Zachary is your ultimate cop, incorruptible and quite likeable when he can keep his mouth clean. I think he is also very misunderstood and gets the wrong end of the stick for nothing. The fact is, he sometimes acts then thinks. But there is also a tender side to him and as a female reader, this is quite engaging. Sometimes, you really want to murder him but most of the time, you want to protect him, especially from his very selfish girlfriend. And in between, help him to unveil a web of deceit.

In a nutshell, Closure is a good cop story with good cops, bad cops, goodies and baddies but where things are not what they seem at first.

I recommend it to everyone who likes a good action/thriller story with a little bit of gore. And also with an open mind, because even the story is not unusual, the development might be.

I will definitely buy the second in the series if there is one. It does not end on a cliff hanger, which is good but you can feel there might be another adventure with Zackary.
