Savage Summer by Ruth Bainbridge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If I hadn't been reading this because it was brought to my attention I would have missed a very good book, written by a very good up and coming author Ruth Bainbridge whose style of writing I really did enjoy reading.
I loved the quirkiness in this book the retorts, thoughts and funny inuendoes at times. I was wondering if I was reading a thriller sometimes as I did get to giggle in places due to the thoughts of Curt. He was an amusing character, but dedicated in what he needed and wanted to do.
“When life gives you lemons … be sure to spit the pits out of that lemonade you’re making. Otherwise you’ll choke.” – Curt Savage
The past year has not been a good one for Curt Savage. Depressed over the death of a loved one, he’s gone into hiding, becoming entirely too comfortable with saying that he’s in the Witness Protection Program. But the urge to find that elusive killer puts his MIA status on hold. With the help of his new buddy Mike, he delves into the murky world of tracking down a killer — and uncovering who poisoned a neighbor’s dog.
SAVAGE SUMMER is the first in the Curt Savage mystery series. Going from former cop to private dick, he represents a new kind of detective—the reluctant kind. As his best bud Mike puts it, “Private investigation just got Savage.
