For any crime aficionado, I can honestly tell you that you are about to receive a brand new “Stone Barrington” to get involved with over the next few years. Why is that? Because when it comes to Casey Golden, he has all the aspects that Stuart Woods made a fortune on when he introduced his character, Stone Barrington, to the masses.

When readers meet this new P.I., they soon find out that Casey is actually retired from the police force, and he certainly doesn’t need a great deal of money to live on. In fact, he supports himself with a trust fund that his parents left behind when they died in a boating accident at far too young of an age. The reason why Casey loves being a P.I. is simply because he likes to solve problems and see justice be done. It’s truly exciting for him, and when Felicity Farren walks into his office and hires him to find her husband’s killer because the police have made it a cold-case, Casey becomes extremely interested in what exactly happened to the man in the bar that night. Was it far more sinister than just a random shooting? Casey will find out!

Felicity visits every once in a while, playing a game of cat-and mouse with the detective, as she offers up ‘scraps of information here and there regarding her husband’s slightly-shady background. But with the help of Casey’s best friend, Detective Ian Jackard, Casey refuses to let the case go until it’s solved.

The dialogue between the characters is a back-and-forth banter that involves everything from seductive innuendos to ‘guy’ talk, to humor - showing readers that although Casey is determined and likes his job, he’s also a man who can’t seem to give 100% to anything but solving the crime. With two steady girlfriends, a Viper in mint condition, and an ego that may even put Stone Barrington’s to shame - Casey is a character that will soon grow on you…even if you don’t want him to. J

Readers will enjoy the sarcastic banter and, most especially, the friendship between Casey and Ian, that truly shows two men who know the absolute worst about each other that neither wants revealed to the world. A good beginning to what, I’m sure, will be a series that will go on for a good, long time.

Until Next Time, Everybody.
