STOREY by KEITH DIXON#newrelease#gansters#bookblog#amreading@keithyd6



When Paul Storey comes home from London he’s escaping an event that ruined his professional life. Now he’s slowly making contact with people again … but the people he winds up meeting are lowlifes, thieves and conmen. Exactly the kind of people he was trying to escape. Worse, one of them is a con-woman who, for some reason, he can’t get out of his mind and who has a habit of manipulating men … When he gets involved in a scam to sell smuggled antiquities from Syria he realises he can’t escape being a professional either—and one with a specialised skill that makes him even more desirable to his new colleagues. Finding a purpose in life while keeping his head connected to his shoulders keeps him busy, until a Syrian who wants the return of one of the stolen antiquities shows up … and he’s not inclined to take prisoners.



I must admit that I hadn’t read any of Keith Dixon’s novels before so starting with a new series seemed to be a good place. Paul Storey is an ex London Police Officer that has returned to his home town of Coventry to sell his dad’s house after his death, but when a woman catches his eye a few days running, his life takes on a new unpredictable turn that he can’t seem to pull himself away from.

This really is an all round entertaining book. I found Storey to be an amusing character that was in a class of his own, more toying with the people around him to pass time. Like they were a good source of entertainment more than anything else that is until it got serious. I really quite mellowed to the local gang that were more brawn than brain and at times I wanted to mother these big hunk of men.

This is a great plot to follow. A little romance and lust, a ton of deception and double cross, and funny with quite a bit of violence. I will certainly be watching out for book two in the series. I wish to thank the author for an arc of this book which I have chosen to review.



Keith Dixon was born in Yorkshire and grew up in the Midlands. He’s been writing since he was thirteen years old in a number of different genres: thriller, espionage, science fiction, literary. He’s the author of seven novels in the Sam Dyke Investigations series and two other non-crime works, as well as two collections of blog posts on the craft of writing. When he’s not writing he enjoys reading, learning the guitar, watching movies and binge-inhaling great TV series. He’s currently spending more time in France than is probably good for him.
