Description

Jay Leicester is a retired airline pilot, retired because he could not stand the bureaucratic web the government spun over the aviation industry, and partly because anyone with the price of a bus ticket could fly on the airlines which resulted in overbooking, overcrowding, and near chaos on every route. Raised in a family of Judges and police officers, the only thing he knew to fall back on was the law. Opening his own private investigation business was a natural evolution, especially since he had trouble with authority, and could work outside the constraints of legalese. Handling mostly aviation related cases, recovery of stolen aircraft, investigating drug-hauling pilots, and helping set up corporate aviation departments kept him busy.

In Blind Overlook we find Leicester doing a favor for an attorney friend and taking a case far removed from aviation. It involves something he knows nothing about, the art world. A beautiful, but enigmatic young woman who owns an art gallery in New Orleans hires him to travel to Maine where a body has been found fitting the description of her brother and partner in the gallery. The body turns out not to be the brother. However he has not been heard from and the young lady grows concerned as he was traveling with four hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash with which to buy a collection of work by an artist named, Rockwell Kent. Delving into this situation leads Leicester straight into a confrontation with the most powerful Mafia figure in the United States, a local detective, a police sergeant, local fishermen, and a friendly, but suspicious waitress at a local caf . The entire populace of the small community seems involved in the murder, the missing brother and his money. Maine coastal locals and offshore islands provide a unique setting for a powerful work reminiscent of Ross MacDonald or John D. McDonald. Character driven and plot oriented, this is a must read for the serious Mystery/Thriller 'aficionado.'

Customer Reviews

Really Good.

Kept me guessing until the last chapter but still wasn’t sure

Pleased to read

I was extremely pleased to find a mystery/suspense novel that wasn't overloaded with profanity, vulgarity and overly explicit sexual scenes. I'm a woman who has had to take up reading male authors because women authors have become disgusting. Thank you sir!

The book had a few errors in wording because no one proofreads any more. The novel is well written, flows fairly well and keeps one in suspense until nearly the end.

I will be looking for more in the series. Well done!

Blind Overlook

An excellent story with thrilling excitement and great plot twists. Will definitely read the other books in Jay Leicester series. Thank you, JC Simmons.
