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.

HASH(0xa14550c0) su 5 stelle Murder, Corruption, and Conspiracy in a Mystery Thriller 14 ottobre 2014
Di Kerry L. Reis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
In north London, a young woman has been raped and murdered, and the woman's fiancé, who was found next to the body and deemed by the evidence to be the murderer, has escaped from custody. These events bring Superintendent Hopwood to DCI Zachary Taylor's office at his exiled sabbatical demanding that he return to take on the investigation of tracking the accused fiancé down. However, soon after Taylor delves into the investigation, he quickly discovers a connection with another incident from seven years earlier when three police detectives were killed in a bar including Taylor's boss and the well-connected entrepreneur Taylor felt was responsible had avoided justice. As the two cases begin to combine, Taylor suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of a deadly conspiracy of corruption and cover-up, where he cannot tell who he can trust with the truths he is uncovering or his life. This complex and tense-filled thriller requires strength from the reader following the risky actions of a detective in a very dangerous mystery. Some plot twists were a bit of a stretch and a bit heavy-handed at times, but readers who enjoy a "lone hero against the system" type of story will be satisfied.

Di Valerie Penny - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I review a great many books and am asked to review a great many more. So when Larry Quartley asked me to review his debut crime novel, I was happy to slot it into my list. Quartley is a British author who was born in the county of Hertfordshire, England just North of London. His has not been a traditional route to becoming a novelist. He previously worked for a blue-chip Pharmaceutical company always wanted to write crime fiction. However, when his company moved the author was offered early retirement and did so. Quartley began to read widely, and to write daily.

The result is Closure, the first in the Detective Zachary Taylor series. The opening chapter of Closure creates tension and sets up the rest of the story. Closure is full of action with the right amount of pace, excitement and intrigue, which will keep most crime fiction lovers happy. The lead character, DCI Zachary Taylor, is different because the reader sees and feels his fear and emotions and, despite his past failings, he is not overly loaded with baggage. He moves through the investigation, getting closer to his target with each unfolding chapter.

In Closure, Taylor is shown as a detective who cannot let go of the past nor the part he played in the death of his old DCI. While he is investigating the brutal rape and murder of a young woman, whose death pulls the past into the present. In 2003 Detective Chief Inspector Charlie Benner was gunned down when he was caught up in a shooting frenzy between rival drug gangs. Zachary Taylor was among the first to arrive at the bloodbath. Although Taylor worked the case he was unable to secure a conviction so his chief suspect, James Black and any other guilty parties remained free and the case remained unsolved.

Seven years later, Taylor is investigating the rape and murder of Stella Kerr. Stella's boyfriend, Steve Lamb, is charged with the murder but he has gone on the run. Taylor quickly learns that there is a connection to the past and James Black. Taylor believes the same dark forces responsible for the slaying of his Benner in 2003 are behind the drug fueled murder of Stella Kerr. Closure proceeds to become a compelling novel.

The characters, for me, are a strong point of Closure. Taylor is an excellent protagonist and Black is very well drawn as a thoroughly arrogant man. Another great character is Allan Devere, the drug lord. The author also carefully gives each character their own voice and accents. I liked this a lot.

However,there are a number of frustrations with the text. Closure would benefit from a thorough dose of editing. To tighten up the story and eliminate spelling and punctuation errors. However, Closure is a compelling debut novel with a lot of promise. I recommend this book and look forward to Larry Quartley's next book in the Zachary Taylor series.

Overall a very good read and an excellent debut novel introducing us to DCI Zachary Taylor. Taylor is a maverick cop (to say the least) who gets suspended from duty whilst investigating the brutal rape and murder of a young woman and the attempt to find her husband believed to be her killer. Short chapters (I like) help the book feel fast paced. The tension certainly increases towards the end of the novel and the real twists and turns happen here. Never guessed the end (I'm very pleased to say). A few repeated phrases like "shook her curls" and others have commented on this-didn't bother me that much. I liked Zachary and his taste in music. I disliked his girl friend Tasha but she is (hopefully) gone. Really liked the character Anna- please keep her and her friend. I feel that Zachary certainly has legs and that he will continue to develop further in future books. Thankfully, not burdened with "inner angst" as has become popular. This is a (fingers crossed) series that will definitely improve with each new novel and I eagerly await the next one

HASH(0xa1455888) su 5 stelle Great Story and Characters 1 febbraio 2015
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
This is a great story that builds up to a good crescendo. Character development burns along at a good pace with the story slowly unfolding around the lead. I'm a big fan of crime thrillers and this was an unexpected treat.

This is a book you could easily sit down and read in one sitting as the story is pretty gripping. Looking forward to the next installment of Taylor's investigations.

(Also at $1.50 this is fantastic value)

HASH(0xa1455ad4) 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.
