by Eric J. Gates
… another masterful thriller from Eric J. Gates….
Eric J.Gates is a man of several talents… his in-depth knowledge of matters most of us can never even sniff at include martial arts, and hi-tech security… add to those the skill he has honed over the past few years in writing crime thrillers, and you have a dynamic, highly-readable author… Outsourced is not your run-of-the-mill crime fiction… the art of good story-telling is the presentation of credible characterisation, and there’s bundles of that in this book… Gates draws on his experience in the modern world of novel-writing… the internet, the computer linkage for surveillance … he throws into the mix a tough-lady officer, not averse to operating on the edges of the law, a semi-genius of a villain, and a pair of authors unwittingly pulled into a web of murders in which they may well be the next victims… the magnet around which it all revolves is a piece of stone, which impacts the actions of the good and the bad characters… but no spoilers from me… just read and enjoy…
