#ThrowbackThursday – Quinn Checks In – L. H. Thomson

#ThrowbackThursday

Renee began the Throwback Thursday meme on her blog, It’s Book Talk to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books published over a year ago. Sounded like a good reason to join! I’ve read a wide variety of genres and gleaned most early freebies from BookBub. Renee would love you to join the fun, and you’re welcome to use Renee’s pic from her website. Just provide the link back to her please).

Quinn Checks In by L H ThomsonThis week I am highlighting L H Thomson, another terrific, prolific author who wrote Quinn Checks In, Liam Quinn Mysteries Book 1, which I reviewed on Goodreads. He has actually written eleven books in this series. This novel was published by J I Loome on July 24, 2014. He consistently runs approximately four plus stars for any of his books sold on Amazon.

Book Blurb:

Warning: this novel contains strong language and violence.

Released after serving four years in a Federal pen for art forgery, former boxing prodigy Liam Quinn returns to Fishtown in Philadelphia, eager to restart his life and make amends. A family friend has arranged a job as an art detective for an insurance company. But a Dutch Master has gone missing, bodies are popping up when least expected, and a mobster  is mighty miffed. It’s a tough job… until Quinn Checks In.

Quinn Checks in combines brutal action with tongue-in-cheek humor, a cast of characters and the kind of family drama that makes you miss your mom’s Sunday dinner!

My Review:

Quinn Checks In by L H ThomsonLiam is from the proverbial “Fishtown” (Philly) Irish family where his scrappy brothers have either followed in their father’s police footsteps or become a priest. He loves art–to the point of becoming an expert at forgery which results in a four-year prison term. On the other side of the spectrum, he had become a boxer of some promise and used the ability to survive both in and out of the slammer.

He manages to wangle a job as an insurance investigator, and ergo his specialized talents come in handy. Investigating an unusual gallery robbery has him touching bases with some unsavory characters and either duking it out with bad guys or waxing poetic over the brush strokes of a classical Dutch artist. The contrast creates a dichotomy between good and evil and maintains the interest.

I received the book as a free download and recommended to me by my hubby, but almost didn’t because of the language and edit problems. However, the character and his world kept me turning pages and the author has turned his debut into a successful series. Liam Quinn can be rather profane, as forewarned, and if that bothers you, you might wish to look elsewhere for your next read. Otherwise, recommended for those who enjoy a detective series, including the “hard-boiled” variety I recently discussed here.
