“It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit” – Antoine Rivarol
Authors Gerald J. Kubicki & Kristopher Kubicki return with yet another book in the Colton Banyon Mystery series, this one titled ‘A Dubious Crime’. As the title of the series suggests, it is about the exploits of a wily old fox Colton Banyon and his gang. When Previne, a team member gets seriously hurt in an archaeological dig site, old skeletons tumble out of the closet and Colton discovers a heinous plan that threaten the lives of everyone close to him. To stop this from happening he teams up with his closest ally and friend Wolf who with his unique gifts soldier up in time to prevent further catastrophes from happening.
They have managed to come up with a real page turner, you will find yourself getting consumed in its extensive plot line and will anxiously speed through its pages trying to answer that eternal question, ‘what’s going to happen next?’. The fiction in A Dubious Crime isn’t just fiction out of thin air but more of a fictionalized reality, which I personally feel is the best kind there is. This novel has many elements in it that will appeal to a wide audience, especially with its underlying themes that are both realistic and very relevant to the world we live in today.
Although it is a complex plot, it is surprisingly easy to follow and even with the inane twists and turns it manages to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. All the characters are well developed and carry forward the story with them. The writing is both exciting and top notch and the dialogues have this clear sprinkling of subtle wittiness to them. It is a wild nonstop ride that will take you all around the world and won’t rest until you get to the end of the book. And by then you would be ready to order the next book in the series
