FBI agent Angus Green is back in Neil Placky’s new book Nobody Rides for Free.
This story picks up about a few month after the first Angus Green book The Next One Will Kill You. If you have not read the first one don’t worry this is a stand-alone story. Although I do recommend checking out the first book in this series it was rather good.
In this book, Angus is on the search for some missing kids who likely are being forced into doing adult videos on webcams. The case starts with a drug overdose situation. Angus finds that the drugs, bath salts, may have come from the folks making the videos.
As his investigation progresses Angus ends up working with the DEA, an undercover FBI agent and a couple of local police detectives. I think this is where this book shines. Investigations are not always just a straight line from crime to knowing whodunit. There can be webs. Layers of events and people who all interconnect.
Author Neil Plakcy in his acknowledgments at the end of this book notes he went to an FBI citizens academy. Which is evident in the plot. The SWAT team does not solve this case. Good old fashioned police work does.
I recommend anyone looking for a well-paced procedural type mystery to check out Nobody Rides for Free.
