Sucker Punch by Ray Banks

Sucker Punch by Ray Banks

This is the first book I’ve read by Ray Banks and I really liked it. Some of the plot points in the final act of the book didn’t quite add up but Banks has a great noir style that kept me engaged and allowed me to forgive any short comings.

Sucker Punch is apparently the second book in a series featuring Cal Innis and I will definitely be hunting down the rest of the series. While the series is typically set in Manchester England, Sucker Punch takes place in LA which makes for some nice fish-out of water observations on our country.

Sucker Punch does not pull its punches and it’s got a great, well-realized lead character.  I’d recommend it highly to fans of crime fiction.
