Scam at Old River

Scam at Old River by [Mike MacKay]

Scam at Old River, by Mike Mackay, is the riveting story of a man who stumbles upon a dangerous criminal organization. Jack Rhodes is a computer forensic expert with a rough past. He meets a girl in a bar and they go home together, but what happens when a goon comes knocking on his door the next morning? After a wild twist, Jack goes undercover to take down a criminal enterprise. Jack meets Debbie and is soon pulled into a mess she has made with her previous employer. Now that Debbie has entered his life and the criminals will also be coming after him, Jack decides to take on their organization and help the police bring them to justice.

Mike MacKay has an entertaining writing style that will keep readers engaged throughout the story. The characters are written so that there is a strong sense of self, each with their own unique characteristics that make them interesting but grounded at the same time. Jack is an intriguing character all on his own, I was always interested to see how he was going to handle the various provocative situations that come up throughout the book, as I knew it was going to be entertaining one way or another. I felt like all the other characters in the novel were there to support Jack’s character, or character development, throughout the story, but were nonetheless interesting in their own way.

This is a crime thriller with an alluring plot that takes its time to develop and evolve slowly throughout the novel. I would have appreciated a quicker pace, but if you are a reader who enjoys getting into the gritty details of a crime fiction novel then you will have plenty to enjoy here.

This is a character driven crime fiction story with a focus on the action and moving things forward at the expense of background information. The mystery at the heart of the story will appease amateur sleuths as it takes some work to piece together the puzzle, although I would have appreciated more clarity.

Scam at Old River is full of action, with an exciting main character, and a stimulating storyline that crime thriller fans will enjoy. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy action, mystery, a slow burn crime thriller and a strong male lead.
