cover

Leon and Junior Daggett are dimwitted petty criminals who are robbing gas stations and liquor stores waiting for the big score to come along. Sociopath Roy Wade loves to kill people with his bare hands; thus he is the leader of this motley crew. When Junior is assigned his first big job of robbing a liquor store in upstate California, the two owners bloody him up forcing him to up escape with nothing to show for his efforts.

Bleeding heavily and needing medical attention the trio drive until they reach the secluded home of Vince and Maria. They force Maria at gunpoint to take care of Junior while Vince, trying to connect with them so they won’t kill him or his wife, tells them he is a retired bank robber. They force him to rob a bank by holding Maria hostage but Vince is smart and has many more years of experience so he intends to outwit these criminals because he knows that if does what they ask, they will kill him and his wife after the heist.

Vince is a suave urbane man in his seventies who can’t get help from the police because he broke parole and if caught will spend the rest of his days behind bars. The way he plays these idiots is a virtuoso performance and readers will think of Carry Grant when they picture him. There is plenty of action and the pace is so fast readers will feel like they are on the space shuttle. Steve Brewer has written a funny and entertaining crime caper in which it takes a thief to catch a thief or three.

Strange Affair is really the name of a song referred to in this book. The story itself is a “Strange Affair” as it weaves through several murders and mysteries. The setting is in Great Britain with Detective Inspector Annie Cabbot and Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks the main characters. These two had a previous “thing” for each other and are trying to operate separate from each other but are thrown together in this Strange Affair.

Several women strangely are murdered and create a trail of suspicious characters involving Detective Chief Inspector Banks’ brother, Roy. When Roy cannot be located, Alan Banks becomes furious with himself since he did not return messages a desperate sounding Roy had left on his phone. Did Roy have anything to do with these murders? What connection, if any, did Roy have with the Berger-Lennox Centre, a woman’s clinic for helping women in which ways?

When a lot of very young girls are found in old and dirty housing, the spotlight goes onto them and who is responsible for their lives and living conditions? This book takes the reader through the British countryside and shows how the nations law enforcement system goes to extremes to solve several murders, finding gangsters and illegal foreign operations within the nation. It is never dull! You will enjoy every minute of this endeavor to track down the “bad guys” and solve crime. You will think you have solved a murder but don’t bet on it! Read on and find out you were probably wrong.
