Blog Blitz: Hard Prejudice

Dave Stanton - Hard Prejudice_cover_high resTitle: Hard Prejudice

Author: Dave Stanton

Genre: Crime

Blurb:

After evidence disappears from a police locker, a man who is accused of brutally raping a popular actor’s daughter, walks free.

Hired by the actor, private detective Dan Reno’s job seemed simple enough: discover who took the DNA, and why. Problem is, from the beginning of the investigation, neither Reno, the South Lake Tahoe police, nor anyone else have any idea what the motivation could be that see the thug, Duante Tucker, get away with the crime. Not even Reno’s best friend, fellow investigator Cody Gibbons, has a clue.

When Reno and Gibbons tail Tucker, they learn the rapist is linked to various criminals and a deserter from the U.S. Marine Corps. But they still can’t tell who would want him set free, and for what reason.

Things get murkier when Tucker visits an Arabic restaurant whose owners are suspected terrorists. Then Cody’s ex-boss, a San Jose police captain, is found to with Tucker’s sister.

The clues continue to build until Reno and Cody find themselves targeted, which tells Reno he’s getting close.

The forces of evil are running out of time, and the action reaches a boiling point before an explosive conclusion that reveals a sinister plot and motivations that Reno could never have imagined.


Review:

Ah, Dan Reno, how I adore you stories (and not just because of the setting, being a California girl myself)! I’ve been keeping up with the Dan Reno novels since Stateline, but this is the first time I’ve been on the blog tour for one! Although it can be read as a standalone, it definitely helps to know the background of Private Investigator Dan Reno, so definitely start with the first book. As always, Stanton does not disappoint. From beginning to end, I was completely hooked. The characters may seem a bit over the top at times, but it works. Also, Stanton clearly knows his locations as everything is described accurately. I absolutely cannot wait for the next novel!
