Trade Winds is a work of crime fiction penned by author Adam Adrian Crown. Written for adults due to its violence, sexual references, and explicit language, this fascinating combination of crime, mystery and urban thriller has a strong bluesy twist. In the big city, poor songstress Brenda is found dead, and the official verdict is an unintended overdose resulting in accidental death. But not everyone believes that Brenda died as a careless junkie, and Jack is a man on a mission to discover the real truth. Ruthless and vengeful, he’s seeking answers in all the dark corners of town to cure his own blues over Brenda’s demise.
A payback tale with a deep and soulful touch, there’s a sharp sense of musicality running through the pages of Trade Winds that gives something really unique to the reading experience. Author Adam Adrian Crown imbues the crime genre with a literary quality, pouring personality by the gallon into our vengeful leading man, Jack. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere of each scene, crafted with color, sound, and a fully visceral use of the senses that makes you feel like you’re really walking into each room as the author describes it. The plot is well constructed to deliver appropriate amounts of mystery and thriller-style action, with the occasional well-timed punch of graphic content to keep the realism and danger of the narrative going. Overall, Trade Winds is a new experience in the world of crime fiction, offering a dark and edgy rhythm that many readers are sure to enjoy.
