In 1921, in the quiet seaside town of Hyannis, shipbuilder Grant Carroway dies in a hail of bullets. Cynical cop Drew Lucy investigates the case. When Grant’s know-it-all daughter Cecilia barges into the crime scene, Lucy puts her at the top of the suspect list. Nine times out of ten, murder’s a family affair.
Pilot Cecilia “Ace” Carroway thinks the hit was masterminded by a Great War tyrant she remembers killing. Is the shadowy Darko Dor still alive?
It sounds farfetched to Drew Lucy until he finds himself dodging bullets and grenades. He’d better get wise quick, or somebody else is going to die.
Ace Carroway Around the World is an entertaining, thrilling and compelling story that will take its readers on an incredible journey through the year 1921 and take readers on an exciting and unpredictable journey that will entertain and thrill readers from beginning to end. Ace Carroway Around the World is book two in the series with book one being called Ace Carroway and The Great War; personally, I think that book one should be read before book two so that the reader can know the story better and get caught up with the events. Of course, you can read book two first but if you want to know the full story then it is better to read book one first!
Ace Carroway Around the World follows the protagonist of the novel called Drew Lucy, a man who is described as a ‘cynical cop’ who is investigating the murder of shipbuilder Grant Carroway. Grant Carroway has been murdered, and so Drew Lucy has been tasked with investigating the crime and not long into the investigation he meets Grant’s daughter Cecilla and well, let’s just say that Drew Lucy is not too keen on her! Drew Lucy also has his suspicions of Cecilla because after all ‘nine times out of ten, murder’s a family affair.’
The reader will follow Drew Lucy as he investigates the case and follow Cecilia as she has become heavily involved in it. Cecilia becomes so involved in the case that she has her own suspicions; she believes that a tyrant is the one who killed her father and although Drew Lucy at first thinks it can’t be true, he soon finds himself in trouble and in danger and so his thoughts begin to change and this book lovers is the premise of the sensational novel.
The story of Ace Carroway Around the World is utterly brilliant and wonderful fun. The fast-paced plot combined with the sensational literature and phenomenal characterization make the novel an incredibly enjoyable read. The twisty turny narrative combined with the action-packed moments and crime ensures that the reader is entertained from the first page until the very last and this is all thanks to the incredible author Guy Worthey.
Guy Worthey is a newly discovered author of mine but boy do I wish I had found his work sooner! His magnificent story combined with his dramatic and addictive literature make Ace Carroway one of the most enjoyable reads of the year. It is surprising for me to think and feel this because the novel is actually aimed at ten to eighteen-year-olds but the plot is so diverse and well -written that readers of all ages can enjoy the story.
I loved everything about Ace Carroway Around the World, but one attribute I loved so much was the fact that the novel is set in the 1920’s! I admit that I am a sucker for the era so when I read about the glorious descriptions of the settings of the novel and the descriptions of the outfits and even how the narrative was filled with slang from the 1920’s I was addicted and enthralled.
As Ace Carroway around the world is a sensational, unforgettable and brilliant novel that will captivate readers from the first page until the very last I, of course, have to award the brilliant book five stars! So please, do have a read of the first book and this one as it can be enjoyed by all ages and you won’t be able to help but fall madly in love with it!
