#BlogTour! #Review – #Endgame by Daniel Cole (@Daniel_P_Cole) @OrionCrime @OrionBooks @Tr4cyF3nt0n

Thanks so much to Tracy Fenton and Orion for the blog tour invite (and the ARC), I am delighted to share my review of ‘Endgame’ by Daniel Cole!

A locked room. A dead body. A secret that went to the grave.

When retired police officer Finlay Shaw is found dead in a locked room, everyone thinks it’s suicide. But disgraced detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes isn’t so sure.

Together with his former partner Detective Emily Baxter and private detective Edmunds, Wolf’s team begin to dig into Shaw’s early days on the beat. Was Shaw as innocent as he seemed? Or is there more to his past than he’d ever let on?

But not everyone wants Wolf back – and as his investigation draws him ever deeper into police corruption, it will not only be his career on the line – but the lives of those he holds closest as well…

What does TWG think?

If you aren’t already aware, ‘Endgame’ is the third installment in the ‘Ragdoll’ series. The author does state at the beginning of this book that it would be highly advantageous if you read the books in order, however i did not do that despite having the previous books ready to read! Whoops! Having said that, I didn’t find the story any less enjoyable not having the in depth backstory of each of the characters. In all honesty, I fluffing loved it!!!!

How amazing is Wolf!!! I was in hysterics at pretty much ALL of the things that came out of his mouth, and at times I felt a teeny bit guilty at laughing given the nature of the circumstances at the time.

‘Endgame’ is SO addictive! Retired police officer, Finlay, is found dead in his own home. Officers investigating the death class it as suicide, however Wolf isn’t convinced that Finlay would go to such lengths. Given Wolf’s unruly personality and ability to annoy everyone around him without even doing anything, Wolf’s idea didn’t go down well with his ‘colleagues’. Would it be in their best interests to trust his instincts, or would they be better off agreeing with the verdict of ‘suicide’ where Finlay is concerned?

Wolf doesnt exactly make it easy for himself, does he? Even though I wasn’t aware of what he had done to annoy his colleagues in the previous books, I got the jist after his personality shone through rather quickly.

As I said above, I fluffing love this book. I adored every single thing about it, from the flawed characters to the frayed relationships, to the thrilling events and the fast paced storline. Honestly, Daniel Cole is an incredible, incredible author – why I haven’t delved into his books before now is beyond me!

I thought this was such a cleverly written novel with outstanding humour running throughout. I wouldn’t expect a thriller to be laced with hilarity, yet Daniel Cole, and Wolf, made it work.

What a phenomenally twisted, thrilling, humourous and addictive read which, if reading this caused speeding tickets, I would be severely bankrupt now! What a book!!!!
