A reluctant investigator, a sordid English seaside town, a criminal underbelly.
Trouble has a habit of seeking out Konstantin, whether he wants it or not. Starting from the moment he arrives in the seedy seaside town of Margate where he’s supposed to be in hiding from his ex-employers. All Konstantin wants is to keep his head down and be left alone. But it’s not to be. People have their problems and Konstantin can’t help but get involved.
Konstantin has to overcome the drug dealer, the loan shark and a Liverpudlian gangster. Then there’s the so-called good guys, the councilors and lawyers who are worse than the criminals. Enter Fidelity Brown, aka Plastic Fantastic, a dominatrix who has her own mélange of secrets and lies, and nightclub owner Ken who’s connected to all the wrong people. Both help Konstantin solve the cases dropped on his doorstep.
Cue deception, murder, mayhem as the Russian settles into his new life. Margate will never be the same again. And neither will Konstantin…
Meet the enigmatic Konstantin, a man with a dark history and darker future in the start of a unique crime thriller series laced with a healthy dose of black humour. Pick up Russian Roulette to find out what all the fuss is about.
I am so glad that I was introduced to this author’s books, he has a brilliant writing style and I have loved the books he has written so far, and this one was no exception.
I loved the flow for this one, it was very well written and I loved the punchy style of the chapters. The characters are very well developed and their interaction was great. It really made the story and the main character, Konstantin is excellent.
4.5 stars from me for this one, increased to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – very highly recommended, some fascinating characters and a fantastic plot!
