The Strange Girl

(2014)
(The fifth book in the Sam Dyke Investigations series)
A novel by

 
"I enjoy Lee Child, Robert Crais, Tess Gerritson. So I think Keith Dixon is up there with the greats."

Private Investigator Sam Dyke is hired to find a man who's been released from prison and subsequently gone missing. But the ex-con is an ex-cop who might have been imprisoned for a crime that he didn't commit.

Working for the man's daughter, Sam soon discovers that this isn't just a missing persons case - there are other people involved, including the owner of a high-profile casino and a senior police officer. And when the brutal representatives of an Asian gambling syndicate show up with their own brand of persuasiveness, Sam knows that he must put things right before he and everyone he loves become potential targets ...

Sam Dyke is a private investigator from a working-class environment who works amongst the wealthy and privileged of the Cheshire set - those whose morals and levels of discretion are offensive to him and go against his own values, forged in a strong family environment. The mysteries he unravels become personal crusades against entitlement, wealth and the abuse of power. Although he doesn't moralise, he gets angry when he sees people who lie, steal and murder to get their way. Like Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade he has a clear view of what the world is actually like, but he nevertheless wants evil-doers set straight and will do what he can to help.
