Review: The Docks
The Docks by V.H. Folland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Thriller short Reading Level: Adult
Disclosure: I received a free eBook copy of this short story in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: Harry's in more trouble than he knows, and he knows he's in a lot.
His freedom depends on covering his tracks, and uncovering the truth before the police do. One person holds all the pieces. Unfortunately Harry killed him last night.
Murder, manslaughter or self-defence? When Harry agreed to a light spot of arson, he didn't know what was really planned. Then the bomb went off. Now he's confessed to burglary, could be on the hook for murder and is desperately trying to dodge a terrorism charge. On his side, a bunch of crooks and the solicitor he's dubbed Ms. Pitbull. Against him are his former accomplices, the police, and the inspector who sent him down for ten years.
My Thoughts: I am seriously impressed at how much story this writer packed into so few pages. Fast-paced but detailed, providing background and character development, this was a great little action thriller that I can highly recommend to fans of the genre. I will note that the author consistently used “passed” when “past” was called for, but that was a minor annoyance in a majorly good story. I’ll be checking out additional books by this author to pick up in the future.
