Colby Clark is handsome, rich, entitled and privileged. He’s also a cold-blooded, pathological killer. As the son of a powerful billionaire, Colby knows his frequent indiscretions will continue to be taken care of by his father’s associates. However, when lawyer Jack Scully’s misfortunate cousin Hugh is framed for Colby’s latest crimes Jack is determined to prove Hugh’s innocence. What follows is a series of twists, turns and betrayals that lead to a climactic ending.
I enjoyed Grind His Bones. I’m a huge fan of Michael Connelly, Sue Grafton and several other crime thriller novelists. Grind His Bones fits in nicely with this group. It contains just the right amount of action, suspense, romance and humor necessary to propel the story forward and keep readers interested.
Richard Newell Smith does a terrific job of making Colby Clark a person you’ll love to hate. The dog-fighting descriptions were enough to make me want to kill Colby myself. And the arrogance and ruthlessness of Colby’s father – a man who’s used to throwing money at any situation – speaks a lot to why Colby is the way he is.
I would definitely recommend Grind His Bones to readers. If you enjoy fast-paced crime thrillers, you’ll enjoy this book. I intend to read both of Mr. Newell’s latest novels and look forward to any others in the future.
