“Bender”, written by Brian Pinkerton, starts off like many other crime stories. It is quite a cliché when a business man wakes up in his hotel room to find a dead, naked woman lying next to him. How many times have you seen that? I know, many, but don’t let this stop you from reading. After you get caught up in this action packed story, you will not want to put it down.
From the start, this book is filled to the brim with suspenseand lots of unexpected twists that will make you want to read on and on. This crime was so meticulously planned and the intrigue is so woven and interwoven that, even after reading 75% of the book, we still cannot believe that Bill wasn’t the murderer, although we want to. Despite the fact that all evidence points towards him, the reader cannot help but feel sympathetic for Bill. He is one of those characters that one easily connects with, a person with many flaws, but with incredible qualities as well, a person with a troubled past that tried to rebuild himself, but faced some obstacles along the way. This is what makes Bill feel real, and the same goes for the other characters who were, in general, very well developed.
Constantly providing you with new bits of clues, but still revealing very little, Brian Pinkerton keeps the reader interested by providing a brain-twisting problem that seems to have no solution, compelling you to read on to get to the bottom of this.
Don’t let the beginning put you off, this story has a lot to offer and I truly recommend it. It is an amazing and contemporary crime story that will keep your brain cells working!
