Review of W. Soliman's LETHAL BUSINESS






When retired Inspector Charlie Hunter receives a frantic message over the radio that the motor vessel, Mistral, a 62 foot Azimut, has an uncontrollable fire in its engine room, he finds himself close enough to see it and another craft on the horizon but too far away to reach the burning ship in time.  From his motor trawler, No Comment, he observes a lifeboat full of people escape the flames. The second vessel he can see, a cigarette boat with the speed to come to Mistral’s aid first ignores the mayday and then plows through the lifeboat at top speed, sending all aboard to their deaths.

Why kill the survivors of a sinking ship?

Lethal Business is the third book in The Hunter files and it reads very well on its own.  W. Soliman has created a tough, likeable hero with a charming and believable heroine.  She describes a storm at sea and acts of political expedience with equal deftness and knowledge. I very much enjoyed this novel and I recommend it highly.

The release date is tomorrow.

Is that the opening scene, Warren? It sounds suspenseful, but it must be a mystery. If the main character is a retired "Inspector" can I assume this is British?
Yes, you have provoked my curiosity. Good job!

Linda Rodriguez said...

Sounds interesting, Warren! You've certainly set up the suspense.

Gloria Alden said...

It sounds like a thriller, Warren. If that's the opening scene, it is sure to hook the reader.

Elaine Will Sparber said...

You hooked me, Warren. I'm looking forward to reading it and finding out why.

Great start--the reader gets pulled in right away. Lots of room for this to grow! The immediate question comes up--is your protagonist now in danger from the "mad" boater? Open water hides a lot of evidence!
