Blog Tour: The Two Fathers – Keith Dixon*

Read my review of The Cobalt Sky

Why does Jessica Hastings come home late several times a week?

Her husband asks Private Investigator Sam Dyke this simple question. Dyke doesn’t want the case: he doesn’t do divorce work … but Brian Hastings doesn’t want a divorce, he wants an explanation.

When Sam finds out what Jessica is doing, it opens up more questions. And when Brian Hastings goes missing, they’re questions he feels compelled to answer.

At the centre of the mystery is a man who most people in Manchester don’t know—Larry Stone. But those who do know him, know that far from being the simple florist he seems to be, he’s actually the biggest crook in town. He’s powerful, he’s dangerous, and he’s currently working a deal with a Dutchman who’s even worse.

And Sam is now caught in Stone’s sights as he works to find Brian Hastings, to solve a couple of murders, and to prevent Stone corrupting even more members of his own family than he already has.

Before the biggest deal of Stone’s crooked career goes down.

My thoughts:

Private Investigator Sam Dyke can’t catch a break, manipulated into finding out where Brian Hastings’ wife is sneaking off to, he finds himself involved in a much bigger case, and one that comes with a body count.

Darkly funny, this is an intelligent crime thriller, where no one actually seems to have a plan, least of all Dyke, and chaos thrives. A really enjoyable and clever plot involving florists, a man named Leg, and two rather strange police detectives.
