The ninth entry in the Jack Taggart shows no sign of slowing down. For those unfamiliar with the series, Taggart is a Canadian undercover mountie who gets the job done. And if you have never ventured into this Canadian crime series, then go pick up the whole series. Trust me, folks, this is probably some of the best crime fiction that’s kept my attention throughout. Never one has author Don Easton gone for a cheap out or ludicrous plot devices. Taggart is human through and through not some Superman in plain clothes.
This entry of the series, ART AND MURDER, is not as dark as some of the previous outings. But it’s definitely up there with tense moments and a great twist. The book finds Jack coming to rescue of one of his informants. This time an escort who has an in with a drug dealer. Things get a bit too rough and she needs Jack’s help ASAP. And with that the ball rolls into typical Taggart bull in a china shop type of action.
