Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

“A Complicated plot that will leave the reader gasping for breath.”

When banker, Emmet Sweetman is murdered, Detective Sergeant Bob Tidey is assigned the case; complicating the murder is a secondary mystery involving small hoods planning an armored car robbery. When the murder bullet is traced, it leads to an older murder case, and now a task force is formed. Detective Tidey and his partner, Rose Cheney are uncovering crooked lawyers and high level influential people involved in a big property scam, but then the case is closed from higher up, which leaves some witnesses vulnerable and Tidey is placed on suspension when he continues the investigation on his own.

Set in Ireland, this novel is a page-turner; well thought out and carried to a thrilling climax. The reader not only follows the police as they search for the killers, but they see the inside workings of the criminal minds. The language is mature, and some of the scenes graphic, but the novel will hold the reader’s interest from beginning to end.
