Book Review: Hard Landing
This is David Keith’s second novel and is a continuation of his first novel, Icy Betrayal. The beginning of the novel is very unique and I won’t ruin it for you. It catches you and drags you into a very captivating mystery. You don’t need to read the first novel to enjoy this book. It has a varying pace and each scene unfolds almost as if it was in real time. Jack Keller from Icy Betrayal does not show up in the first pages of the story. The victim of a very strange murder is front and center from the first chapter and the mystery is off to a fast moving start. The story takes place in a small town in Colorado near Denver. Jack Keller works for a Rocklin county sheriff’s department with a cast of many main characters.
Embezzlement, airplanes, and murder combine to make a mystery that pulls the reader page by page as the story unfolds. It combines a mystery and a story with each chapter and scene unfolding in an almost real time pace. Normally this would slow a novel down but not in this novel. The time between chapters is what makes the novel move the story at a fast clip. There is not one main character in this book and the many characters are connected by the plot.
The book is a very fun read and gives a very entertaining weekend read.
