Dennis Milne is a man with a past, and a past that involves murder. A former cop, he's earned his living killing the bad guys - drug-dealers, corrupt business men - people who, in his opinion, deserve to die. For the past two days, he's been in Manila, waiting for his next target: a young woman who's made herself some poor life-choices, and some even worse enemies.

DI Tina Boyd is a woman on a mission. Tough, spiky and determined, she's looking for the man she holds responsible for the death of her lover. She knows he's ruthless. She knows he's dangerous. But he's in Manila, and she's determined to find and kill him - before he kills her. Two cops with pasts that haunt them - and a present that could see them both dead.

They are about to meet. And when they do, it's payback time...

I really don't know what to make of this author! I read "Relentless" & found it disappointing, followed it with "Deadline" which I quite enjoyed but I then really didn't like "Severed" which lead to me releasing "The Business of Dying" unread....& on reflection I may have been a bit hasty in doing that!

I only really picked this book up as it fits the requirements for the HEAD, SHOLUDERS, KNEES, & TOES Challenge & I do prefer to release books I've read ("The Business of Dying" being an exception!) &, I'm surprised but happy to say, I really enjoyed it! Better storyline, good characters that were already known to me & action scenes that I could visualise (most of the time).

My thinking is now that if I come across a Dennis Milne or Tina Boyd tale I'll give it a go but will probably leave standalone books alone :o)

8 out of 10

Purchased at a charity stall in Halifax Town Centre a few months ago and only just noticed the sticker inside. Perhaps Ishould have said that I "caught" the book! Anyway, have held it captive for a little while have now had the opportunity to read it and found it absolutely captivating. What a roller-coaster of a ride with Dennis and Tina.

I've also read Relentless, which I thoroughly enjoyed and will certainly read other titles by this author in the future.

We have a bit of a book exchange at the hospital where I work and I will take Payback there for release.
