Review: A Light in the Darkness

A Light n the Darkness (The Haszard Narratives)A Light in the Darkness by Kevin E. Hatt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I truly enjoyed this book for all of its many facets – crime, drama, friendship, a touch of romance, intrigue, sparks of humor – all wrapped in quintessential British flavor. Author Kevin Hatt wound the life of Haszard, the main character, around the murder of his friend, his pub-dwelling buddies and his career so well, I felt like I was there with them. The romantic relationship between Haszard and his girlfriend is refreshing and different than many modern relationships and even more so than book and movie relationships. The actions scenes are believable and kept me hooked all the way through. As an American reader, I loved the British colloquialisms and lifestyle.

Things go from bad to worse when a second friend is found murdered; when an unknown assailant chases him and his friend down a deserted road while firing a gun at them; when blackmail enters the picture and threats are issued, and so much more. In the meantime, Haszard has to maintain his jobs, deal with a crazy ex-girlfriend, and try to establish a new relationship while he takes it upon himself to find whoever is responsible for his friends’ deaths.

He vows never to get involved in anything like this again, but we know he can’t stick to that promise because there are more books in the series, and I, for one, am glad. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
