Emmanuel Obi has perfectly captured the essence of the detective noir genre with his lead character, Bruce Howard.
The stories in this collection move at a good pace, and have some interesting and likeable characters that provide connection and consistency between different stories. Obi has generated some really interesting storylines and twists that keep the reader guessing.
It’s also refreshing that, over time, his lead character reveals his own weaknesses and humanity, which add another layer of complexity to his bravado and his genius for solving crime.
There is some adult content, so I’d recommend this book for anyone over 18 who enjoys a good, old-fashioned “whodunnit” with modern twists.
In short, this is a really enjoyable collection.
You can find both of Emmanuel Obi’s Bruce Howard collections at Amazon.
