I hate to say it, but Digging Deeper was something of a disappointment – it didn’t feel finished, and I’m convinced that part of that is because there were at least a dozen typos or mistakes scattered throughout the book. There’s nothing wrong with the story itself, but it does feel as though it’s incomplete or in need of further development.
The story follows a man called Will who works away from home at a construction site, and who suspects his fiance of having an affair. He begins to investigate, but finds much more than he bargained for – he ends up entangled in a world of organised crime and underground organisations who’d kill you as soon as they’d look at you.
And the bad guys are suitably sinister, if a little too human at times – the problem is with the protagonists, who act erratically and who often contradict themselves. Will, in particular, is difficult to get along with – you almost want him to fail in his desperate mission to put the whole damn mess behind him and move on.
Having said that, there’s a satisfying twist towards the end which makes the rest of it worth reading, and if you’re in to crime dramas and evil conspiracies then you’ll find it much more to your liking – if only they’d fix those typos!
