NEVER KILL A FRIEND by Martin Hill


By Theresa de Valence - Posted on 03 August 2015

Detective Shelley Krieg’s actions as a bad cop give me a bad taste and I wonder whether to quit the story, having little stomach for bullies. But then, neither does Shelley.

NEVER KILL A FRIEND (©2015) by Martin Hill is slow to start but my interest keeps building. Detective Krieg doesn’t do what I’m expecting. Neither does author Martin Hill Ortiz.

Some of the language is lyrical. The crimes are gruesome. Banter between friendly workmates is titillating. Carping by adversaries intrigues.

Some stories swoop the reader into becoming a character in the story. NEVER KILL A FRIEND maintains a mile high view watching the dance of flawed humans trying to steer events with self-interest, compounded by conceit. An elusive conundrum.

Friends are definitely tested in this story. And you can’t turn your back on a single one.

Satisfying.
