Volume 4 in The Judge Ment Series
|I've completed the 4th book in this series dealing with the antics of Judge William Ment, a High Court judge and reluctant amateur detective. Two fundamental differences are that this book is in the first person POV and can be read as a standalone novel. Doing this allows a deeper insight into the workings of Ment's mind.
A PLEA FOR HELP--EXTORTION--LIES AND DECEIT--MURDER
James Riley's plea for help sends William Ment on a journey that uncovers a path of lies and deceit as he unravels the hidden truths behind the death of his colleague, Frank Motaung and the demise of Ricardo Bernato alias Ricky the Rat.
Not able to move forward, Ment must retrace his steps and follow the trail that leads him back to Mandy Kershaw, Frank's exotic lover. What secrets does she hold?
A visit to Gloria and Eddie who are doing jail time for Frank's murder provides a further clue despite their reluctance to talk.
Returning to the Oasis Game Farm, Ment discovers the important link that he is looking for and the key to Riley's dilemma.
But ultimately only James Riley holds all the answers as finding him takes on a new dimension.
Is there anyone out there who is not serving their own agenda? Are the seeds of distrust scattered everywhere and sprouting with increasing vigor? And has a single rat led Ment to the horde?
Volume 4 of The Judge Ment Series. Reading the previous volumes is recommended but this volume may be read as a standalone novel.
