Duplicity by Shawn Wilson Blog Tour/Book Review


I received a gifted copy and am providing a review.

Brian Kavanagh (Brick to his friends) has found himself unemployed, so off to Ireland he goes to unwind and think. There, he meets Nora whom he later visits in Chicago, his home base being Washington, DC. Brick also finds comfort in visiting his local tavern, Boland’s Mill. Being unemployed in his forties, Brick doesn’t know what he’s going to do next until he gets a call from Grace Alexander, one of the teachers at the local university. She wants to teach her students how to work a cold case and the case of Henry Yang has caught her attention. She wanted Brick’s input due to his expertise. Brick finds out some very interesting things after he’s given permission to look into this cold case by his lieutenant.

Then, there is the story of his former partner, Ron, and his family (wife Jasmine and six-month-old twins, Jayla and Jamal). Imagine Ron’s surprise when he returns home after his shift and his family has disappeared. The usual suspects in such a case are suspected. Ron, of course, is beside himself and is forced into administrative leave, but he can’t rest and Brick manages to help him stay focused, even providing his own home as a sort of refuge to Ron. The twists and turns to this aspect of this book … totally unexpected. You’ll have to read the book to find out more.

If you like a story that has at least two intertwining stories, give Duplicity a read. I would categorize this as a police procedural with a couple of unexpected twists thrown in just to keep things interesting. There is even a wee bit of romance tossed in. I enjoyed Ms. Wilson’s writing style and look forward to seeing what she brings us in the future.
