Triggerfish: A Crime Novel by Dietrich Kalteis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Triggerfish is a boat owned by an ex cop Rene Beckman, renting it out for fishing days is how he is spending his retirement, however on one trip with a girlfriend he stubbles upon a drug gang smuggling high value narcotics. This of course means they are immediate targets because of what they have seen. The story is a good one however I personally found some of the writing difficult to read as the author used a lot of descriptive narrative that was not essential to the plot - "Shoes scraped on the pavement, a handwritten sign by Market Seafood said they had wild sockeye, just in" That aside it has plenty of action and thrills and entertains throughout. The author needs to concentrate on entertaining without the flowery text which for me would make this a much better book.
