Fans of intricate Nordic noir will adoreA LAST ACT OF CHARITY which features covert operative JJ Stoner. Highly-trained, finely-honed and used hard, Stoner now seeks not to kill as he investigates underworld activities for the intelligence agencies, an entirely deniable operative in sleazy situations. A series of brutal, blood-soaked murders look to be right up Stoner’s street. When the investigation spirals in queasy circles, JJ seeks release in blues music and weird sex with treacherous women. An old army comrade, equally lethal, steps out of the shadows. Is he friend or foe? And who are the seductive killing sisters?
‘The writing is clever and inventive, paying few dues to existing genres or styles,’ said Crime Fiction Lover. ‘Stoner is violent, amoral and cynical.’
‘Guns, girls, guitars and scenes of gruesome violence, all shot through with a wit sharp enough to draw blood,’ said award-winning author RJ Ellory. ‘With terse and brilliant prose, Westworth delivers a plot that drags you along relentlessly.’
