Description

Nick Harding has a new case.

A money launderer has hired him to find his daughter.

Except not "hired" so much as "kidnapped". And not the daughter so much as the $10 Million she stole.

Unfortunately, the former owner of the $10 Million is also looking for her.

The good guy always wins. Nick isn't sure who that is this time.

"Right from the introduction the dry wit set a romping tone for a well-planned, action-packed series of misadventures with the details of a Tom Clancy plot written in the attitude of a Dick Francis delivery. The spunky characters made this a really fun read..." 5 Stars

I would like to thank Netgalley and Beech Nut Press for a review copy of Dead Tomorrow, the third novel to feature Sydney based PI Nick Harding.

Nick is on a first date with Lucy when he is abducted. Money launderer, Terrance O’Shea, an old adversary from Nick’s days as an Australian Police officer wants him to find his daughter, Terri, and isn’t taking no for an answer. The trouble is Terri is in Sydney to redirect the ten million she stole and has no interest in meeting her or the guy she stole from who is also chasing her.

I thoroughly enjoyed Deadly Tomorrow, which is another fun caper in a very readable series. It is told from various points of view, but rather being a drag on my concentration and immersion as I usually find, this approach simply adds to the fun. The reader is in no doubt about anyone’s intentions, be it the FBI, the AFP or Russian gangsters. The O’Sheas are perhaps not as vocal on their intentions, but there is enough inferred for it to be clear.

The devil is in the detail as they say, so, with everyone’s intentions clear, the novel revolves around Nick’s manoeuvrings in sticky situations and a lot of CCTV hacking. It’s fun, exciting and ultimately rewarding as the action never stops. It’s highly entertaining.

Nick and his man in the chair, Davie Sangster, come off initially as a couple of amateurs. Don’t be fooled as Nick is very smart and Davie a top notch hacker. They are a formidable team, made even more formidable by the steely Lucy. Davie even manages to do well when out of his comfort zone, in the field and attacked.

Dead Tomorrow is a good read that I have no hesitation in recommending.

This is the first book by Tony McFadden that I've read and I must say I quite enjoyed it. It starts promisingly with a man and a woman walking on a beach, on the verge of getting into something more intimate, when they're interrupted by three goons who rough them up and take the man for a ride. He's the series protagonist, Nick Harding, and the story that unfolds plays out as a fairly standard suspense thriller but it's well written and with interesting characters and plots. I enjoyed the unapologetic Australian dialogue, including the swearing, which is more realistic than most thrillers these days. The banter is entertaining, the writing was smooth and the story engaging enough to keep me reading. Worth a read. Thanks to the publisher and Netgallery for the review copy.
