I don't often read books written by men. I don't read thrillers very often either. But when I had the chance to review The Devil's Necktie, I jumped on it. The blurb alone was enough to make me want to read it.Jack is the MC and I immediately liked him. A hard nosed retired NY cop. He's gruff and all busines. When an ex-informant reaches out to him for help, he is a little apprehensive. And with good reason. Minutes after leaving her, she's murdered. And guess who's suspect # 1? We follow Jack as he tries to find Mia's murderer and clear his name. Old enemies will surface and old threats too. There's a lot going on in this book. A little romance, a hint of steam and lots of action.I would recommend to anyone who likes to read thrillers, or those who love lots of action!.
