Description

Jack 'Flash' Gordon's private investigation business in Liverpool is in trouble with staffing issues and changing technology. So when Sarah Gladwyn from an old Welsh family commissions the ex-copper to investigate a series of threats and attacks from an anonymous assailant, it seems like a lifeline. The stalker is obsessed with the family's role in oppressing the local slate workers in Victorian times and stealing Welsh water for use in England.

It's a great opportunity for Jack so what could possibly go wrong? How about murders, discovery of skeletons in cupboards, conspiracies, bent coppers, corrupt politicians, violent gangsters and a terrorist threat to Liverpool's water supply. Flash Gordon? He'll need to be Jumping Jack Flash to get through this one.

Review quote

'Pool of Life by Pete Trewin is tightly wound, moving in a staccato beat through the seamy underside and scaly upper crust of Liverpool with the stakes rising higher with each explosive encounter. Trewin does a masterful job of teasing the reader with clues as Jack finds that not only are his two new cases related but also a decades-old suspicious disappearance of a young woman is rearing its ugly head. The pressing question, though, is whether or not Jack can survive long enough to solve the puzzles. This is a book you can't put down. Just when you think you might want to take a break from reading, Trewin drops another morsel on your plate, and you just have to keep reading. A definite five-star read.' Charles Ray, Awesome Indies Book Awards assessor.
