CR - Death on Demand, Paul Thomas

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've stopped panicking over how many books there are that I am so far behind with reading. You can't bet city hall after all, but it's a nice feeling to know there are so many great local options (this is from NZ) if you're not up with the series (which is brilliant so you should be).

Former cop, Duane Ricketts, made two big mistakes in his life.

The first was being fingered for buying heroin-laced cigarettes. A mistake that would see him languishing in a Thai jail for a couple of months.

His second mistake was to become friendly with Frank Varty.

Varty is apparently the only preson who knows the exact whereabouts of 10kg of high-grade cocaine from an aborted run into New Zealand by boat 10 years ago.

Then, wouldn't you know it, Varty is killed by the partner of a Thai ladyboy and Ricketts is on hand to hear his final words.

Do you believe in love? Do you trust your partner?

Nick Souter did, with good reason - he and Anne had something special. He didn't make a habit of going through her pockets but what's a man supposed to do when he's got a rotten cold and a wife who helps herself to his handkerchiefs? You can't blow your nose on an adulterous love note but it certainly took Nick's mind off his sniffles.
