Review of ‘The Seventh Man’ by Lisa Buie-Collard

An unknown assassin is in London, but this hit isn’t for money – it’s personal. The assassin, on the lam for fifteen years, is a professional, with an uncanny ability to be invisible - almost.

Detective Sargent Alban Thain, knows this assassin, a man he calls ‘the Wraith’. He’s been researching assassins, especially ‘the Wraith’, for ten years. But Thain’s colleagues don’t believe ‘the Wraith’ is real.

American author Celia Wight is in London for a

Detective Thain is the only police officer who believes the Wraith and the assassin are the same person. And now his job's on the line if he can't prove that or at least capture the man responsible for the brutal murder of a prominent. banker. He anticipates the huge obstacles ahead of him, but he doesn't anticipate the remarkable connection he shares with Celia Wight, the reclusive author the murderer has kidnapped during his escape from the crime scene.

This is one main story thread. Another ev

A fast paced procedural. Intriguing as it becomes clear that these lives are fated to cross paths.
3 characters whose fates have been dictated by the vicious acts of others cross paths. One a policeman bent on finding a ghost for ten years, another a writer hiding from her past and the third a killer bent on exacting his price.

On a winter's day just before Christmas, these lives become inextricably entwined when while trying to evade the police and hide from the CCTV, our killer and writer colli

An engaging mystery with a surprise romantic twist. After a bank robbery/murder, an American writer goes missing. Detective Thain is convinced the murder has nothing to do with the bank robbery, but is connected to the missing writer. He's convinced the murder was an assassination tied to a mysterious figure he's been chasing for years, causing his police peers to question his sanity. Detective Thain has this one case to prove he's not chasing ghosts and to save the writer. During his investigat

This book has everything, from suspense to complex, wounded characters, to a bittersweet-but-satisfying ending. Some details I saw coming and a few surprised me. I liked the way the author wove the story and ramped the tension as it barreled toward the end.

If you enjoy books that are gritty and real rather than neat and tidy, and you like a healthy dose of police procedural with your thrillers, The Seventh Man is for you.
