Review by: Clair Roxanna on Aug. 16, 2014 :
A very good plot well written. I felt the final action scene was sorely inadequate as far as detail, it wasn't clear and came across as implausible.

Altered Life by Keith Dixon - I couldn't put it down! Six Star!

Keith Dixon has taken the classic American cop–turned–private eye mystery story with all its American–style action but given Sam Dyke a British intricacy by combining the wit, intelligence and complexity of the likes Colin Dexter’s “upper–crust” Morse with the working class background and the reining in of the “madness” with method of Morse’s partner, Lewis.

It has twists and turns, with the clues leading you to think in one direction but actually taking a surprising turn down a different path. The detective solves the mystery, resolves the issues with his old flame and gets the new girl... But does he really? Dixon leaves you with a twist in the tail, wondering whether there’s not more to the mystery than first meets the eye, and wanting more of Sam Dyke.
