Bullets in the Sand (The Inspector George Zammit Series Book 2) by J Aberford

Thanks to @hobeckbooks for the ebook version for review.

This is one hell of a book!!, it has everything under the sun, murder, humour, romance and especially action and plenty of it!!.

This time we find Inspector George Zammit from the Maltese Pulizija helping his friend Abdullah Belkacem take back his lands and fortune plus revenge for the death of his brother. The story centres around "The Family" which isn't like the mafia, this organisation is centuries old. It has its long fingers into everything but now it has its sights on natural gas, a multi-billion euro commodity. George is a simple man who only wants an easy life but oh no his destined for more incredible things.

It was an amazing read full of action, I liked the way the chapters are structured with different characters, it was easy to follow. The author's ability to lead the reader through the story is superb.

Book 1 is explained throughout the first chapters but I urge you to read it as it's truly an adventure.

An amazing read and highly recommended. Book 3 is next in the queue.

AJ Aberford has enjoyed a varied career, having been both a corporate and banking lawyer, owning and running a private investment company and founding a leading Yorkshire craft brewery. Changing direction, he is now a debut author of the Inspector George Zammit crime and thriller series.

AJ Aberford still keeps his house in Yorkshire but lives primarily in Malta, which is the inspiration for the Inspector George Zammit series. Upon moving there, he soon became enthralled by the culture and history of the island that acts as a bridge between Europe and North Africa.

Malta’s position at the sharp end of the migrant crisis, as well as the rapid growth of its commercial and offshore-financial sectors, provide a rich backdrop for his writing. The culture, politics and geography of the southern Mediterranean continually throws-up surprises in this fascinating part of the world, nothing is ever what it seems, with the lines between right and wrong often blurred and twisted.

AJ Aberford is married and has two grown-up sons, as well as grandchildren. He is a keen cook, an adventurous traveller, a cyclist and is currently writing the fifth book in the Inspector George Zammit series.
