The Workers of Iniquity (C.T. Ferguson) by Tom Fowler

C.T. Ferguson is back, the pro bono hacking PI in another solid tale. Hired to find a missing husband he clashes with loansharks and uncovers some other crimes.
What I enjoy about this series is the youtful energy behind it, not a surprise as the protagonist is not even 30, unlike most 40-something private eyes.
I do think he gets helped out by his cop friend a bit too easily perhaps, but I guess that keeps the story fast-paced.
Not groundbreaking or winning any awards. But absolutely an enjoyable tale.

Like To Die (Rush McKenzie) by David Housewright

At first it seems like a pretty tame investigation... Wealthy ex-cop Rush McKenzie is asked to find out who is sabotaging the factory of a friend's friend.
When he investigates he finds himself mildly attracted to her and discovers a whole bunch of secrets, leading him to face a lot more dangers then he figured.
As always it's good to hang out with McKenzie who manages to be both Spenser-style hero and Everyman.
While this one starts up a bit slow when it starts to speed up it's an exciting read.
