Third Rail by: Michael Harvey Review

Description via Goodreads:
The ferocious new novel from the author of The Chicago Way (“A major new voice”—Michael Connelly) and The Fifth Floor finds Michael Harvey at the top of his game in an expertly plotted, impossible to put down thriller set in Chicago’s public transit system.



Harvey’s tough talking, Aeschylus quoting, former Irish cop turned PI, Michael Kelly, is backin a sizzling murder mystery that pits him against a merciless sniper on the loose. After witnessing a shooting on an L platform—and receiving a phone call from the killer himself—Kelly is drawn toward a murderer with an unnerving link to his own past, to a crime he witnessed as a child, and to the consequences it had on his relationship with his father, a subject Kelly would prefer to leave unexamined. But when his girlfriend—the gorgeous Chicago judge Rachel Swenson—is abducted, Kelly has no choice but to find the killer by excavating his own stormy past.

Stylish, sophisticated, edge-of-your-seat suspense from a new modern master.
My Review:
This book was sent to me via FSB Media for a honest and fair review. This book was full of suspense, thriller appeal, adventure. We follow P.I. Michael Kelly as he is being contacted by the sniper attacking various people. There seems to be little in the way of catching the sniper. Michael also has to watch someone he care about get caught up in all of this. It was well written and kept you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out if Kelly will figure it out in time. I also really enjoyed the cover to the book it's very well done. A great book for anyone looking for a great thriller to ride on.
