Next of Kin by David Hosp.
Steve bought this book for me…
When Boston attorney Scott Finn agrees to defend the son of notorious mobster Eamonn McDougal, he knows he’s putting his reputation on the line. But he also knows he can use him as bait to reel in the prize catch. In a city where mob crime once ruled, a core of corruption, greed, lies and deceit still lingers. And it seems there are those in power who will stop at nothing to achieve what they want. Finn, who grew up an orphan on the meanest streets in the city, is determined to solve the murder of the mother he never knew. In his search for the truth he uncovers a sinister trail of murder, betrayal and revenge borne by someone who could neither forgive nor forget. But who can be trusted, and who can be believed?
I don’t read a lot of crime fiction so I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel. The characters are well drawn and the pace is fast which keeps you turning the pages.
However, I figured out the ‘twist’ about a third of the way through which was quite annoying.
Book 73 of 75.
