JimiJix: The Ultimate Irish Revenge Thriller
Tom DohertyPosted 10 March 2020 by the-librarian
David Doyle is brutally murdered in front of his brother Killian. Killian then takes it upon himself to track down the killers. The action is packed into a tense five days.
JimiJix takes place in an Irish town where the local police are not exactly trusted. More often than not, this leaves any required police work to be taken up by the aggrieved. This environment of distrust, and possibly disdain, does not make for a happy coexistence. It does however, make for a wonderful setting and plot device for this story. It is not over the top and allows for some interesting things to happen that would otherwise seem implausible.
Overall it is a fun mystery/suspense novel. It takes some time to understand what’s happening and why as some of the characters feel more like a quick sketch than fully developed. As others have mentioned there a few loose ends dangling by the end. However, that does not detract from the enjoyability of the novel once you get into it.
If you enjoy a good mystery, this one could easily scratch that itch. I enjoy cop/mystery dramas from the BBC (yes I know Ireland is not part of Britain but still) so I enjoyed the setting and the quick-paced plot (which differs from many of the BBC procedurals in a good way). Overall, I’d recommend picking this one up.
