Under cover surveillance to unearth an insurance scam was as boring as it could get for private investigator Gary Maddox. So when a woman came into his office requesting he search for the killer of her son, he was sceptical. Until she told him more. Gary accepted the large holding cheque and admitted the surge of adrenalin was enough to get him started.
The woman’s son had been well-known to the police of Sydney – a drug dealer who had been in and out of prison most of his life; not many were unhappy he was no longer on the streets. But Gary would search for justice for the mother – after all, she loved her son…
Gary’s search unearthed more than he’d bargained on – would the amount of money he’d been paid for the job be enough? Or was he about to find out that drug dealers and thugs often used their most trusted to take out the problem – but he wasn’t dead yet!
Not Dead Yet by Aussie author Peter Menadue is a fast-paced crime thriller with loads of bite! An excellent start to a new series, I have no hesitation in recommending Not Dead Yet to lovers of the genre.
