Review: The Detriment by David Videcette. Another story has been told and told well.

About The Book.

“The truth costs nothing, but a lie can cost you everything…”

June 2007: a barbaric nail bomb is planted outside a London nightclub, a spy is found dead in his garden, and a blazing Jeep is driven into Glasgow airport. Three events bound by an earth-shattering connection that should have remained buried forever.

From the author of ‘The Theseus Paradox’, the smash-hit 7/7 thriller based on true events, comes the sequel about a real-life mystery that threatens to destroy a nation. Detective Inspector Jake Flannagan must uncover how a series of astonishing events are inextricably linked, before the past closes in on him.

About The Author

David Videcette is a former Scotland Yard investigator who has worked on a wealth of infamous cases, including the 7/7 London bombings. With twenty years’ policing experience, he is an expert on terrorism and organised crime. ‘

I can’t tell you the truth, but I can tell you another story…’

My Thoughts

Sentiments aside (as I will always have a soft spot for Jake) this book is extremely well written and the story is mind blowing in truth, and your opinions on certain things may well be altered after reading as it gives you real cause to stop and think.

Extremely informative and convincing to the point that it became 100% real and it dominated my day completely.  David has created a character in Jake who is both a lovable bad boy and a hard working detective determined to get to the truth – not an easy task but it has been achieved totally imo and the personal connection I felt with Jake was present all the way through – and actually felt like I was having a proper conversion with him at one point (note to self, must get out more).

The detail within the story is at times complex but written in such a way that it is easy to digest. A belter of a book and another story told and told well!.

5 sheep rating
