Minions by Garrett Addison

Minions by Garrett Addison Purchase:

    This is a great book- full of mystery, action and intrigue.

    Devlin Bennett’s life is no longer in free-fall, but only because he’s hit the bottom. What’s worse, his notoriety is such that opportunities and friends are few and far between. Until a new job lands in his lap.

    Benign and well-paid, the role and his new peers are unfazed with his history. It’s the chance he’s desperate for and his life is surely on the improve. But when he is warned anonymously to not join a list of deceased past employees, the job loses some of its lustre. Unable to walk away or ignore the warnings, he needs to understand whether he’s been handed a lifeline or a death-sentence.

    His concerns are shared by an aging detective investigating the death of the latest employee. Together, they just might unravel the truth that lies amongst a newly bereaved woman, a Balkan sociopath, a battered performance artist, an elusive ex-employee and his enigmatic employer’s reference to a ‘greater good’. What they learn might benefit them both, and others.

    Guilt is just a matter of how much you understand the bigger picture.
