Review – Killer City by Seumas Gallacher

imageWith a name like ‘Killer City’ you would expect action and this story certainly delivers with the grim discovery of a body stuffed into a wheelie bin to kick off events. A man is arrested; his father protests his innocence and when no one else will listen he turns to his old friend, Jack Calder, to help his son.

But, whether the young man is innocent or not, it quickly becomes evident that this is no straightforward murder case. Jack and his colleagues at International Security Partners soon find that all their skills are required as drug trafficking on a huge scale becomes part of the investigation.

Killer City is a quick read and a definite page turner. There is plenty of action without it totally dominating the story so that the more human side of the ISP crew is also revealed, though they can be as ruthless as the criminals and murderers they pursue, when necessary.

This is the second book in the ‘Jack Calder’ series I have read and not in the order they were written! There is a back story to the ISP security company and its members but Killer City also does very well as a stand -alone read.

      I really enjoyed it! I’ll go back and ‘fill in the reading gaps’ in the series when I have a few more books off my to-read list. I don’t read so much in this kind of genre these days and it makes a really nice change! I would say though that I think your books have an unusual and really winning combination being in your own words ‘street crime meets black ops’
