Blurb: “Bob Burton knows crime and how to write about it…you won’t put this one down.” Elmore Leonard.
Brad Bennedict, bounty hunter and P.I., lives quietly in Montecito, and works in a blender of crime, corruption, and killings. His job is manhunting, and he and his crew at Quiet Ops do it better than anyone in the land.
When billionaire Grenwald Stanton calls to report his beautiful twin daughters have been ‘ruffied’ and hooked on heronie by rapper Jo Jo Bling and that he’ll pay large for their return, Brad and his boys, T-Rex and Cocoa are on the hunt, and his main lady bounty hunter, Monique, is in the middle of it all. Then when Stanton is kidnapped without paying, ka ka hits the fan. From gold plated Montecito to the gator and snake filled swamps of Florida, it’s a manhunt.
Review: Brad “Bulldog” Benedict, a high class private investigator in Santa Barbara California, tells this story from his first person prospective. The life and times of wealthy individuals often become fodder for the press. Bulldog specializes in fixing those issues before the press get their hands on the “Facts.”
When twins become entangles in the Rapper/Drug scene Benedict is hired to “retrieve” them and bring them home. Normally wouldn’t be so hard to do, but the twins are of legal age and the Rapper is guarded by the worst kind of thugs. How will Benedict and his team infiltrate a Rapper’s world, stay safe and convince the twins that their biological daddy is more interested in their safety and well being over their “Rapper, Drug Pedaling Daddy?”
Interestingly his leads often come from the strangest situations. One of which is the local pub. Seems most people have no problem spilling their inner most secrets to the guy behind the bar. If he is a good listener he not only could receive a good tip, but a fee from Benedict for the lead to a paying gig.
Marcus, the bartender with a good ear, has a hot tip for Benedict that might just lead to one of those high paying gigs. But before anything can happen, Benedict has to find the drinker and convince him that he – Benedict, can help him with his apparent problem. That unto itself could become an issue if handled wrong. Will Mr Poindexter agree to Benedict’s help or consider him a threat to his own future?
Quiet Ops unfolds as Benedict attempts to work through two apparently different investigations. He soon finds that what appears on the surface is far from reality. Benedict and his co-worker/ employees are an interesting group. His enemies are equally intriguing.
I found the story interesting and captivating and will look for other stories by the authors of Quiet Ops.
