If you are looking for a fast-paced thriller, I highly recommend Death is the New Black by Dominic Piper. This book features a lascivious sleuth, the fashion industry, sexy women, a high-speed chase, physical combat, dynamic characters, and lots of plot twist.
Dominic Piper superbly uses the first person to flesh out his main character. Within a few paragraphs, I start to understand Daniel Beckett, the thirty-something Private Detective. At first, I was put off with the way he sees women as sexual beings, but then I realized that he is appreciative of the female form and not derogatory. For some reason, women are attractive to Becket as much as he is to them…every man’s fantasy.
After the police fail to help her, Sara Holt hires Daniel Becket to investigate street-harassment and possible break-ins into her home. Then, the attacks escalate. Can Daniel Becket save Sara Holt? Will he be too distracted by the women who seem to fall all over him? Will his sassy retorts get him into difficult to get out of situations?
Daniel Becket is resourceful, but also lucky. He can be cold, calculating, and deliberate—never to be underestimated.
The sex and violence are suggestive, not graphic. If reading these make you uncomfortable, find another book. Otherwise, hold on to your hat: you’re in for a fast ride.
