Having read several Barry Faulkners self published DCS Palmer series, I have to say that Loot is my favourite case out of his nine cases. DCS Palmer and his sidekick DS Gheeta Sing are on the trial of some stolen Nazi gold. We're taken out of DCS Palmer's native London to Gloucester and then to the seaside. The gold changes several times and the body count rises. Why does an MP want the gold? There are so many twists and turns to this particular story, I love history and crime so this case gives me the two things that make me happy.
The body count mounts up and an old adversary from Palmers past arrives to cause havoc.
Barry writes great murder thrillers and the books are available in a duel case like this book or as individual case's. These are self published all the cases are well thought out, i do like some cases better than others. Perhaps you will prefer I'm with the Band featuring a 70's rock band. Very popular even today so DCS Palmer has to wonder why the band members are being killed off.
The killer is comfortable in cyber space a place that Palmer isn't but his partner Gheeta Singh was born into the computer world and brought into his team for her computer skills. Every story is full of twist and turns, a fast paced ending that Barry does so well.
Loot gets 5/5
I'm with the Band gets 4/5
