Favors and Lies
Author: Mark Gilleo
Genre: Fiction, Suspense
Release: July 1, 2014
Publisher: Story Plant, The
Dan Lord is a forty-year-old private detective with a law degree working the blurred line between right and wrong in the Nation’s Capital. As a self-employed solutions broker and legal consultant, he works for a very select clientele. He doesn’t advertise and only takes cases on referral. But when two people close to him are murdered, Dan’s work becomes very personal.
With the assistance of a newly hired female intern, extracting clues from a ladder of acquaintances, Dan bounds through both the underbelly and elite of society, each step bringing more questions and yet ultimately taking him closer to the answer he seeks. A bail bondsman, a recluse hacker, a court clerk, a university student, an old-school barber, a high-class madam, an intelligence officer, a medical doctor, and a police detective are among the list of people Dan must cajole for help. His quest will lead him to discover things he never wanted to know, and put him in the position to reveal things that important people would prefer remain unrevealed.
Favors and Lies by Mark Gilleo
Dan Lord is a private investigator who is trying to solve the mystery of the murder of his sister and his nephew. It looks like his sister in law killed herself and his nephew died of a drug overdose. He doesn’t believe either of these things and is trying to find out what really happened. The lead police investigator on the case is then found dead as well and he’s certain that something is going on. He starts to think that there may be some kind of government involvement in what’s going on and he needs to get to the truth before those that are involved can stop him.
This is the first book I’ve read by Mark Gilleo but it definitely won’t be the last. I’m a huge fan of fast paced suspense thrillers and Favors and Lies kept my attention to the end. The story is believable and was easy to get into which made it quite enjoyable. I had a hard time putting it down and definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense thrillers.
