Review of A WITNESS ABOVE by ANDY STRAKA
I received a copy of this book from the Publishers via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
After reading a pre-release copy of A Killing Sky I fell in love with the Author's writing, his PI Frank Pavlicek is such a down to earth ex-detective who has a knack of getting involved in murder cases (old habits die hard I guess).
A Witness Above is another of the Frank Pavlicek stories, this one involves him stumbling across a dead body, and the dead man has in his wallet Frank's daughters telephone number. Of course, as you would imagine she is arrested and is under suspicion of murder. Frank sets out to find the culprit and get his daughter's name cleared.
You probably have read the other reviews which go into the story in a bit more detail, I won't do that as it's just repetitive so would bore you. I will, however, comment on the writer's mastery of written words. He somehow manages to grip you with his stories, as an ex-detective it makes for a great Private Investigator, which he certainly is. The story is very detailed, gripping and will keep you glued to the story, you will be unable to put it down.
Terrific work by the Author Andy Straka, I continue to watch for more of his books.
