This murder mystery is full of twists and turns. Two disgraced police detectives take on a cold case, that seems open and shut. Just that the second detectives aren't having it, and the more they look into it, the more they are convinced something else is going on. With plenty of suspects, can they find out the truth and prove it, as well as salvage their careers? Plenty to keep your attention!
'An Unlikely Hero,' a novella, by P.F. Ford is one of the more enjoyable stories I have read in a long time. It has dry humor and lively dialogue, which never drags or bores. Its first person point of view works very well, as the central character Alfie Bowman is likeable and decent. If you care to take a shallow dive into British lifestyle, without becoming embroiled in intellectualized prose, this story is a good place to begin. I certainly plan to read more by this author in the future.
