If you want a light fun detective story with a classic "cop in trouble" protagonist, then this one's for you! It's fun, a bit corny at times like most of this genre, but has a decent story line. I read this one as a break from my last read, which was more serious and darker subject matter ( a realistic war theme).

A fun read that I enjoyed. Some reviewers had criticism of the English and sentence structure etc., I suggest you overlook this, relax and escape into the world of Ben Hood for a few hours.

A great read dragged down by a lack of editing. The main character is engaging and the plot is believable. I recommend it if you can ignore or skip over the errors.

Review by: Robert Schobernd on March 10, 2012 :
"Aussiematt" is correct that the editing is bad. I hope Mr. Lindsay will take the criticism positively and endeavor to improve the spelling, word usage, sentence structure etc.
Now the positives; pacing is good, characters are well developed and the descriptions are good. I liked the lead in giving information about Ben. If he is going to be the main character in a series I want to know his background history and who he is mentally and emotionally. Yes, that takes time and delays getting into the action of the main storyline; but I like it.
Overall I think the author is a great storyteller. Now he needs to improve his writing technique so readers aren't distracted by his mistakes. I believe Mr. Lindsay will then have the opportunity to be a popular author.

Review by: Matt Eliason on Dec. 15, 2011 :
I felt the story took a bit long to get going. Certainly having an experienced proof reader/editor would make a difference so that at least all of the 'Coral sea' would be fixed to 'Coral Sea' plus other frustrating aspects like that.

I found the using of the full name of the hotel every time it was used to be very annoying and thinking maybe they had paid to have it used in full every time. I think that 'the hotel' suffices after the first use or even 'the Sheraton' or 'the Mirage'.

Other aspects were a bit travelog style, and why the CID Inspector would be the highest ranking officer - maybe conveniently missing state govt agencies that would have been involved.

Overall the story concept was good, plausible, just a bit clunkily put onto paper.

A good-fun, easy read. Excellent technical knowledge provided by the author along with detailed descriptions of Far North Queensland, let the reader feel they are right there on location! Filled with the "beautiful people", adventure and romance, what's not to enjoy?

An exciting novel that lets you experience every emotion from edge of your seat thrills, to romance to tears of joy. Set in magnificent Port Douglas in Far North Queensland in Australia. The author obviously know this place intimately as he describes it to a tee. A must read!!!
