Présentation de l'éditeur

The Retainer is an intriguing tale of betrayal, blackmail and lust set in 1970s London when life was more innocent - or was it?

It’s 1972 and Geoff Wilkinson, a Watford solicitor, leads a mundane life. Still living with his mother and working for a measly wage he feels trapped in a life that he never wanted to lead, that is until Jack Shepherd walked into his office. Shepherd, a rogue, a pro of the criminal underworld, offers Geoff £1000 to become his retainer. In Shepherd he sees a glimpse of the freedom he craves which is compacted when he runs across his childhood friend, Tom, a pot dealing hippy that resides on a barge. Geoff finds himself questioning his life. Feeling unsettled and confused, he receives a 2am phone call and is summoned to Aylesbury police station on Jack Shepherd’s behalf.
“He was impressed by the unruffled calm of the man and his apparent mastery of the situation. A professional indeed.”
Geoff suddenly finds himself not only trapped in his profession, but by Jack Shepherd. Guilty of taking dirty money and lying to the police, Geoff finds his life and business now at the mercy of Jack Shepherd. Geoff finds himself sliding deeper and deeper into the darkness of the criminal underworld.
“Now thanks to his own stupidity, he had slipped into a worse position of not just familiarity but downright criminality.”
Can Geoff Wilkinson, a man who has spent his career upholding the law and looking down on those of his profession that fall into the criminal classes, survive the trap that his own naivety and rash actions have created for himself?

I also loved this story from start to finish. It's hard not to root for Geoff, despite the "difficult' situations he gets
himself into. The writing style was particularly enjoyable and appealing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Retainer Is A Book Worth Retaining 6 novembre 2013

The Retainer is a gripping, fast paced story of a mild mannered solicitor named Geoff that suddenly finds himself on the other side of the law when he inadvertently begins a life of crime. After killing a criminal that first came to him for representation, Geoff eventually assumes the identity of the man he killed and delves further into a life of crime.

Through a series of events that take place during the story, Geoff comes to live an entirely new life as the now deceased Jack Shepherd. This new life takes him from place to place as he drifts along, using his knowledge gained as a solicitor, to avoid the authorities.

Geoff meets many people along the way and finds himself falling for one woman who works as a lady of the night and another woman who ends up using him to make her future husband jealous. After finding out the woman was using him, Geoff then later shows up at a party with his lady of the night on his arm. His intention is to have this lady engage in relations with the fiancé of the woman that used him. The tragic turn of events that takes place as a result brings the story to its shocking conclusion that readers will never see coming.

For anyone who craves a story filled with intrigue, deception and exciting twists and turns, The Retainer is a great choice.

Contains a couple of typos and minor formatting errors but nothing too distracting. Overall a very good read. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even with the couple of typos, the book is sure to be a hit. 25 octobre 2013

From the beginning to the end of this book, you feel as though you are watching it, instead of reading. The descriptions are vividly written and sure to please. The story line is able to grab hold and take you on an adventure that you will remember for a long time to come. I know this, because that is the reaction that this book had on me. The author was able to grab my attention from the point I started reading. Living the hectic life I live between work, school, and family, I need the break in my day. This is the break I enjoy the most. Another great e-book, by Ernest Marlin.
