Hard Prejudice by Dave Stanton @DanRenoNovels #BlogBlitz @Bloodhoundbook #Review

Thank you for stopping by for the start of a new blog blitz for Hard Prejudice by Dave Stanton and I'm delighted to be one of the stops sharing a review. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...

After evidence disappears from a police locker, a man who is accused of brutally raping a popular actor’s daughter, walks free.

Hired by the actor, private detective Dan Reno’s job seemed simple enough: discover who took the DNA, and why. Problem is, from the beginning of the investigation, neither Reno, the South Lake Tahoe police, nor anyone else have any idea what the motivation could be that see the thug, Duante Tucker, get away with the crime. Not even Reno’s best friend, fellow investigator Cody Gibbons, has a clue.

When Reno and Gibbons tail Tucker, they learn the rapist is linked to various criminals and a deserter from the U.S. Marine Corps. But they still can’t tell who would want him set free, and for what reason.

Things get murkier when Tucker visits an Arabic restaurant whose owners are suspected terrorists. Then Cody’s ex-boss, a San Jose police captain, is found to with Tucker’s sister. 

The clues continue to build until Reno and Cody find themselves targeted, which tells Reno he’s getting close. 

The forces of evil are running out of time, and the action reaches a boiling point before an explosive conclusion that reveals a sinister plot and motivations that Reno could never have imagined.

Well what a series this has been so far and I can't believe we are now on book five. I have enjoyed each book featuring Dan Reno and it would be difficult to pick a favourite. Even though Hard Prejudice is part of a series I would still class it as a standalone as the characters history is weaved into this story easily which helps to avoid any confusion. However what I will say is that all of the books are worth reading and you will obviously get a deeper background on the characters if you do start at the beginning.

As ever Dan and Cody find themselves in trouble but they work so well as a team that it really makes this book all the more exciting. In this story both Dan and Cody are hired to find a rapist, as you would expect with this storyline there is going to be some darker content. It definitely provides an edge along with a tense and action packed plot that I have come to expect from this series. 

The pacing was pretty good and at times very fast paced, there were parts where I was glued to my kindle as Dan and Cody found themselves right in the thick of it. In Hard Prejudice danger and trouble finds Dan Reno but what a story it makes!

Four stars from me!
