In Ed Ryder’s Jack Gilmour: Wish Lawyer Jack’s future was determined by a rather unique case, forever changing his life, and that of his future clients. He knows more about demon contract law than any other, especially since most lawyers wouldn’t take such a contract seriously. This time, however, he has bitten off more than he can chew. What seemed to be a simple contract turns dastardly when the ramifications of the act are considered. Desperate to help annul this deal he finds himself pulled straight into the centre of an inner-circle power struggle, with more on the line than even the high-stake Vegas players are willing to bet.
Ed Ryder’s, Jack Gilmour: Wish Lawyer is an atmospheric, first-person supernatural tale. It is a little like a Dick Tracy style gumshoe tale, combined with hard-hitting supernatural and magical influence. I have enjoyed Jack’s personality and found his old-school detective style, it added a real charm to the plot and his character. Investigation, danger, revelation and an impending sense of dread fill the pages of this novel as Jack gets drawn deeper into matters far above his oat grade, but if he wants to survive, and protect the things he cares for, then he has no choice but to unravel the deception and schemes before it is too late. I thought the supporting cast complimented Jack well, from magic to mobster, each bring something to the proverbial table. Gripping, thrilling, and a real treat for those who enjoy a character-driven entertaining plot.
