Third Blow is a work of fiction in the crime, suspense, and mystery sub-genres, and was penned by author J. T. Bishop. Fans of the Detectives Daniels and Remalla series will enjoy this new mystery, which is a standalone but still follows the timeline from First Cut and Second Slice. In this installment of the suspenseful series, we meet Jace Marlon when his best friend is killed. As the detectives are called in to help find the killer and unpick the mysterious motive, Jace is forced to face demons from his past and dig up dirt he would rather had stayed buried. What follows is a psychological and emotive mystery drama with plenty of thrills.
Author J. T. Bishop has never failed to deliver with Detectives Daniels and Remalla, and once again has crafted a suspenseful story that brings us close to the action and delivers high-risk action situations. Jace was a fascinating central character to bring in for this tale of secrets, revenge, and mysticism, making it more difficult to see the clean-cut lines of who to trust and where the storyline itself is headed. I was impressed with the different emotional and psychological layers which mix into the genres, delivering romantic moments, criminal wisdom, deep discoveries of identity, and poignant moments of family love. When this is portrayed with Bishop’s attention to descriptive detail, snappy exposition dialogue, and crafty plot-making, you have a perfect mystery on your hands. I would, therefore, recommend Third Blow to fans of the existing series as well as new readers looking for high-quality suspense fiction.
