Retired inspector Jack Bertolino had strict rules when dealing with confidential informants. But Mia had the kind of beauty that could make a grown man contemplate leaving his wife, his job, and his kids. After a passionate night together, Mia is found murdered—and Jack is the lead suspect.
Facing threats from the LAPD, the 18th Street Angels, and a Colombian drug cartel, Jack delves deeper into the seedy world of drug dealers and murderers and discovers that the top players knew Mia personally. And now Jack is torn between fearing for his life and seeking revenge for his slain lover… either way, the body count will rise.
I don't often read books written by men. I don't read thrillers very often either. But when I had the chance to review The Devil's Necktie, I jumped on it. The blurb alone was enough to make me want to read it.
Jack is the MC and I immediately liked him. A hard nosed retired NY cop. He's gruff and all busines. When an ex-informant reaches out to him for help, he is a little apprehensive. And with good reason. Minutes after leaving her, she's murdered. And guess who's suspect # 1? We follow Jack as he tries to find Mia's murderer and clear his name. Old enemies will surface and old threats too. There's a lot going on in this book. A little romance, a hint of steam and lots of action.
I would recommend to anyone who likes to read thrillers, or those who love lots of action!.
