I am so lucky I received a copy of The Boyfriend by Thomas Perry before it was released. I love this author and every book he has written, and this book was no exception. He will be joining us in our booth on Saturday March 9th at 10:00 AM at the Tucson Festival of Books, so be sure to stop down and get your autographed copy .
Jack Till is a former LAPD homicide detective who now works as a private investigator. When the parents of a murdered young woman hire him, his investigation takes a turn no one saw coming. The woman was a high paid prostitute and she is not the only victim. As Till’s digging into the victims progresses he discovers a disturbing pattern.
I don’t want to give too much away about the plot so I will tell you how much I like the characters of Jack Till and his daughter. Perry created such a terrific father daughter relationship and it really let you see a softer side of Jack. It was so fascinating to watch The Boyfriend in action as the novel progresses and he realizes there is someone tracking him. The way Perry writes what the character is thinking and feeling is great. You feel like you are right inside their head and a part of all of the action.
The Jane Whitefield series is one of my all-time favorites. This new character is great and if Jack Till continues in more books, I will still be one happy camper. Mr Perry is an award winning author for a very good reason.
