Charlie ‘Big Bad’ Woolf thought it would be easy money, and there’s precious little of that for a private detective in a seaside town. It was just a trip up to London to hand over an envelope – a favour for his old partner, Alan O’Connor. But Woolf couldn’t resist taking a peek inside. The pictures were unadulterated smut; a man and a girl in a hotel room. Blackmail, pure and simple – right up O’Connor’s street. Woolf was happy to be rid of them, handing them over to a masked man in a London park.
When he gets home, O’Connor’s waiting for him, which is a surprise. The bigger surprise is that he’s dead; a bullet through the eye. Woolf is the prime suspect, but when he discovers that the man in the photographs is a German diplomat and the blackmail is being run by MI5, things get more complicated. It seems obvious who killed O’Connor, but Woolf soon realizes that he’s the only one who cares. With war looming, the good of the country counts for more than the arrest of a murderer. If he’s to see the killer caught, Charlie Woolf must prove that the crime has little to do with the world of espionage…
Thanks to the publishers for sending me a copy and for asking me to take part in this blog tour, I have voluntarily reviewed this book! Well.. I don’t know where to start. Late Whitsun is the first in the Charlie Woolf series, with more to come and I cannot wait to read the others already. I have awarded five stars as I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I loved it! I managed to read Late Whitsun in just two days, I was hooked!
Late Whitsun is well written, fast paced and easy to read! I would highly recommend this story to you all (213 pages). This story will keep you guessing and bring out the inner detective within you to see if you can solve the case before they do (I failed). Beware, this story is cleverly written and you wont expect the outcome. A book that is hard to put down! A story that kept me thinking… Brilliant. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for Charlie Woolf!
