This novel, DEXXMAN, is a great success because of the lead character, Lawrence Dexxman.
He is both singular and universal. After all, a seventy-five year old private investigator is not often encountered in crime literature and he is accompanied by a host of fascinating characters, as well as a dog to die for.
The background is London but not too specific to discourage me...I live in Spain. This, the introductory novel, begins with the murder of the Home secretary’s son, and thereafter the corpses mount at a Shakespearean rate, many of them the self-defence handiwork of Dexxman himself.
The plot advances in a genial fashion that will delight any Jacobs' fan – he has published a ton of books – and this one comes to a satisfying and unexpected conclusion. I look forward impatiently for more Dexxman and highly recommend this work. Enjoy.
