***** 5 STARS
Good Deed by Steve Christie is a fast paced crime novel that introduces a new Scottish detective hero, DI Ronnie Buchanan. Events take Buchanan from his base in Aberdeen on a frantic journey around all the major Scottish cities as his increasingly deadly pursuit of a mysterious criminal master mind known only as Vince comes to a breath-taking climax back in Aberdeen.
I know a lot of people that would be put off when they see a book that in their minds is just another one of those police procedural set in Scotland and don’t we already have enough of them. But I dare them to say that after they have finished reading this novel, and honestly the people who think like that are not in the know, each different author brings their own unique twist to their books and their Characters like D.I. Ronnie Buchanan and his unique twist on life but sorry I won’t spoil it for you you will just to have to read this book for yourselves and find out what I mean
But anyway back to the review,the pace of Good Deed is so exceptional and breathtaking it will take you on a rollar coaster ride of ups and downs it has you laughing at one point, crying at the next and every other emotion in between. With this in mind you will be wanting to read Good Deeds in one sitting where it will have a detrimental effect on your eating, sleeping and other tasks and when it ends you will be desperate to get your hands on the next novel in the series.
It’s lucky then that I have been informed by a good source, the author Steve Christie that the next novel will be out in Springtime 2014 published by Ringwood and will be called Cold Shot, I know that I will be one of these people who will be getting their hands on this book whatever it takes.
