Undercover agents, domesticated imbalance and hard hitting fight scenes are paramount throughout. Never knowing who to trust and which side of the story to believe keeps this thriller pumping along at breakneck speed.
Author Dave White, well known for his PI writing flips the script with WITNESS TO DEATH. His style is similar to Duane Swierczynski while the thriller aspects match up with the best in the business. The linear plot is balanced by deep characterisation and enough back-story to make each kill, fight, struggle and victory mean something.
Hinting at a capacity for further stories in this setting, WITNESS TO DEATH both concludes this story while leaving a glimmer of hope for further exploration. It’ll be interesting to see where Dave White heads next – PI or thriller? Either way it’ll be well worth the price of admission.
