Owen Mullen was one of Last years star Bloodhound books signings and he writes a fabulous series featuring a PI called Charlie Cameron.
The Games people play is the first in what will hopefully be a series, in the novel:
Thirteen-month-old Lily Hamilton is abducted from Ayr beach in Scotland while her parents are just yards away.
Three days later the distraught father turns up at private investigator Charlie Cameron’s office. Mark Hamilton believes he knows who has stolen his daughter. And why.
Against his better judgment Charlie gets involved In the case and when more bodies are discovered the awful truth dawns: there is a serial killer whose work has gone undetected for decades.
Is baby Lily the latest victim of a madman?
For Charlie it’s too late, he can’t let go.
His demons won’t let him
I thoroughly Enjoy Owen’s writing style it is a great example of modern noir fiction. Charlie is a great PI and having a character who is not a cop is a really refreshing change when you read as much crime fiction as I do. I like that again Owen paints really real genuinely likeable characters that draw you into the novel and make you care about what happens in the plot.
Owen is a master at creating tension and keeping the reader guessing until the end. I was thrilled when he signed with Bloodhound books as Owen Mullen is an author more people need to discover. Try him out you are genuinely in for a treat.
Games People play is a solid 5* read for me, I look forward to reading more from this wonderful author.
