About The Book
Gethin Grey is the man you call when there’s nowhere else to turn. His Last Resort Legals team investigates miscarriages of justice. But Gethin is running out of options himself: his gambling is out of control, his marriage is falling apart and there’s no money left to pay the wages…
Izma M was sent down years ago for the brutal murder of a young woman. In jail he’s written a bestseller and become a cult hero, and now the charismatic fading-film-star Amelia Laverne wants to bankroll Gethin to prove Izma’s innocence. For Gethin – low on luck and cash – the job is heaven sent. But is Izma M really as blameless as his fans believe?
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. Fade to Grey is potentially the start of a new series to feature the Last Resorts Agency. The people who work there are Gethin, Lee and Bex. Gethin is a character who has some major problems. His marriage is on the rocks and he is a gambler. Initially I wasn’t that keen on his character and preferred the two women, especially Lee. But when I got to know him more, and understood him I mellowed. I don’t understand anything about the attraction of gambling but I did like his playlist. I liked the descriptions of his family life, particularly his home which sounded lovely.
The story was an interesting one and different to other novels I have read lately. I have read novels before where a convict has possibly been wrongly charged but it’s the characters who made this feel fresh. The well known actress whose appearance was something of a shock to the team, Gethin’s father, the judge, who he had a strange relationship with, his daughter, Hattie who was definitely a Daddy’s girl, Lee with her straight forward approach and Bex with her other career as a tribute act.
I hope this does become a series I would like to get to know the team more, I want to know more about the close knit team.
