The Concrete Goodbye by W. H. Lock is a Crime/Suspense novel that doesn't fail to feed the curious minds. Of course, it is a little different from the others, it has an extra ingredient of superheroes which makes it all the more fun and exciting.
Jack Story is a private detective in Sterling City which also happens to be a city of superheroes. He is called upon to find the perpetrators behind the blackmail of Major Victory, a big shot league boss. His granddaughter is involved in a mess and if Major doesn't agree to their terms, it will be all out in the open. He is also investigating a case where a young emerging actor is blamed for a murder. But with all the superheroes around, Jack's work is not easy, to say the least. As he digs deeper into the case, he finds shocking evidences that could well be leading to the unexpected. The question to be asked is, can the superheroes be trusted after all?
The Concrete Goodbye is a fast paced and a classic who-dun-it. The narrative is impressive, with to the point references. It has a strong and a well developed protagonist. Jack Story's character keeps rising from its lows no matter how difficult the situation may seem. The book is a quick read with adequate humor and plenty of inquisitiveness.
Overall, I would say that The Concrete Goodbye is a well written suspense that is thoroughly enjoyable and keeps the readers on edge till the true culprit is revealed. Definitely recommended for who-dun-it fans.
