Old Friends and New Enemies by Owen Mullen

I enjoyed Old Friends and New Enemies, the second PI Charlie Cameron novel and give it a thrilling 5 star recommendation.

The book is mainly set in Glasgow, as was the first novel – Games People Play.  This should be read after the first book but can also be read as a stand alone novel. The author knows his way around Glasgow and brings the city alive in his descriptive writing.

This gripping instalment had me hooked beginning to end. Private Investigator, Charlie Cameron is shocked when he realises the body in the mortuary is not the man he was expecting, instead its an old friend…

Thank you Owen Mullen for the opportunity to read and review the second Charlie Cameron novel.  It was gripping and I look forward to the next!

Synopsis

An explosive new crime thriller

The body on the mortuary slab wasn’t who Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron was looking for.

But it wasn’t a stranger.

Suddenly, a routine missing persons investigation becomes a fight for survival. As Charlie is dragged deeper into Glasgow’s underbelly he goes up against notorious gangster Jimmy Rafferty and discovers what fear really is.

Rafferty is so ruthless even his own sons are terrified of him.

Now he wants Charlie to find something. And Jimmy Rafferty always gets what he wants.

There is only one problem… Charlie doesn’t know where it is.
