Ciaran Richards’ father was a soldier. A hero.
But now he’s dead. Or is he?
He doesn't care who gets in the way !
Ex-cop Frank Harper doesn't want to get involved. Harper is visiting the small Ohio town of Cooper's Mill, trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter and a grandson he's never met. But he finds the town gripped in fear-two young girls have gone missing, taken in broad daylight from a busy street. And the police are coming up blank. But once Harper is drawn reluctantly into the investigation, he'll stop at nothing to find the girls. And he doesn't care who gets in the way.
A Tour De Force of intrigue and edgy noir backdrops, Enslen leads his readers on an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness with A Field Of Red and it certainly isn’t slow off the mark! A gratifyingly graphic page turner with real depth, Enslen writes with an impeccable eye for detail to deliver a taut, compelling read with a superbly executed plot. There’s a real sense of authenticity here and it comes in the main from Enslen's astute rendering of Frank Harper. There's a well-worn familiarity to his character and yet Enslen ably manages to avoid trite tropes. He imbues him with the more endearing qualities readers expect from a protagonist in the genre, but by leaning towards the fallible side of his character he has created the persona of a man irrevocably tainted by the detritus of evil. It’s this which drives the plot and Harper’s relentless pursuit of his prey. Certainly compelling and darkly introspective at times it makes for a riveting read throughout.
A powerful and highly satisfying novel that proves a fine example of best in genre, A Field Of Red certainly deserves the raft of great reviews it has so far garnered. One to add to your must read list, it is recommended without reservation!
