MUSICAL MYSTERY TOUR
‘Unfinished Business’ is the sequel to ‘The Final Straw’ and continues Colin Bailey’s quest for revenge. After a decade in West Africa, out of reach of the long arm of the law, he has waited impatiently for the news of whether Neil Cartwright, his former friend, has managed to get parole.
Colin Bailey is now in his early forties and alone. He has watched his homeland sink further into a morass of crime, drugs, sexual exploitation and domestic slavery with increasing anger; he despairs of the efforts of the police and the legal system to do what’s needed to remove the cancer killing the country he loves. He sees himself as the only person with the will and cold blooded efficiency to clean the streets of these criminals.
The key themes of this sequel are death, revenge and music. Hard rock and heavy metal got Colin’s juices flowing. He spent many hours planning how to dispose of the people on his list listening to his Walkman while working underground at Leigh Park Mines.
Colin becomes a roadie with a Canadian Iron Maiden tribute band. Their tour begins in Scotland and moves down the eastern coast of England, crossing over to Liverpool and Manchester before eventually heading south to London.
The band’s itinerary meant he could tick a few names off his list as he travelled across the country. Everything fitted! His plan was complete; he had one last task at the end of the UK leg of the tour; Colin could deal with the policeman whose continual harrying and frustrating might prove to deflect him from his mission – Phil Hounsell.
As each name on Colin’s list is being ruthlessly eliminated Phil Hounsell is teamed up with several of his former West Country colleagues as they hunt down the stone cold killer. He also meets Zara ‘Mouse’ Wheeler; she’s just over five feet tall, seven stones wringing wet, as sharp as a tack as regards police work but an innocent in the ways of the world.
Is there romance? Time will tell; certainly Zara finds her new boss attractive and thrown together in difficult situations in far flung corners of the UK, who knows what could happen?
Reviews for ‘Unfinished Business’ say it is: ‘a thriller in every sense of the word’; ‘a gripper’; ‘difficult to put down once you’ve started’.
Sounds like just the book to pick up doesn’t it?
