When a drug dealer dies during a police interrogation, Detective Wes O'Brien, also known as Irish Black, faces more scrutiny from the higher-ups regarding his methods of getting information from crooks. This time, they will not let him off with a warning but let him go from the force permanently. Wes doesn't have to ponder about his future for long as someone hires him privately to prove that her husband is cheating on her. A cheating spouse case is not to his liking but the pay is good. Little does he know that the case will turn into a double homicide and that he has to work against the clock to solve the murders before he becomes the next victim. Irish Black is Book 1 of the Wes O’Brien Series by D.A. Schneider.
Drugs, powerful mobsters, prostitution, murder, crooked politics, and more - Irish Black is as gritty as one can expect from crime fiction. With brutality and fear as his methods, Wes O’Brien may not be the ideal detective of the police department but he delivers justice and gets results. The flashbacks of his younger years with his father reveal the foundation of his temperament and his personal stand against crimes. Opposite him is womanizing bounty hunter Jackson Posey; he seems reckless but proves to be resourceful as he and Wes partner up to solve the murders and face adversaries who have the power to manipulate the justice system for their own good. The story is driven forward through violent and dark action scenes, character clashes, and connecting the dots to find the truth. With a great twist and a satisfying conclusion, D.A. Schneider's Wes O’Brien series is off to a solid start.
For a limited time, Irish Black is available in paperback for only $5.43. A great gift for the mystery lover in your family.
