weeks after the events of The Loot, Charlie finds herself fitting in really well with Boston Asset Protection Ltd Company Things start out on a mild note as Charlie, Dom and Beckett are takes with the protection of Lincoln Gable, a provocateur in the making Lincoln however wants the publicity so Charlie and company just have to bear the brunt of the protestors.To add to that, based on their exploits as detailed in the previous book , the local DA has approached them with the security for their most valuable witness for the East Boston Three case In it, a gang of police officers were systematically looting gangs and now three members have been caught The fourth possibly a cop is unknown and still at large The DA wants to convict the rogue officers and needs Boston Asset Protection to keep their star witness safe until the trial Things are never simple as Charlie finds out as there sthan one entity who wants to kill their witness Plus there s also the matter with Lincoln Gable and Charlie s father, these subplots are what power The Insider and make it a thrilling read.Right off the bat with this sopho volume, things are off to a rushing start and this is really prominent as the characters and setting have already been established The characters are Craig Schaefer s bread and butter and here again with Charlie, we are treated to a complex but heroic character whom we can easily root for Charlie is trying to fit in within the civilian world and she s definitely doing a better job than most military folks however her PTSD is still there She has faced the realities of her father s situation and is also comfortable with the grey complexities of her job There s also the other professionals such as Dom and Beckett who have equally complex pasts and are able to provide Charlie with foresight to do what s necessary.The main plot of the story deals with subterfuge and its present on all sides Clients not necessarily telling the truth, the local law enforcement having leaks and the potential of one of BAP s member s past coming back in a deadly way Craig Schaefer nimbly handles all the threads and keeps the tension even throughout the story I enjoyed this second outing a lotthan its predecessor as the author nimbly keeps escalating the stakes and there s quite a few plot misdirections aimed at the reader which were fun to negotiate The pace of the story is also very streamlined and the characters are constantly kept on the backfoot as they along with the readers try to figure what is truly happening.One of the key features of this book is how someone s past comes back to haunt the whole team and this was definitely a solid plus One of the book s antagonists is a very curious person and it brought to my mind this line from Craig s website which he uses to describe this series The Charlie McCabe series from Thomas Mercer Publishing starting with The Loot, in August 2019 is a pure crime thriller series with no fantasy elements As such, technically it doesn t fit into either of the above continuities Technically I think this book deals with a curious feature that perhaps knocks on that technicality and I ll be curious to ask Craig about it when we interview him There s something here and I think this mirrors what Craig did in the first four Harmony Black books wherein each title would reveal the past of a certain team member Another aspect which I think the author is handling really well is that he s not shoehorning a romance subplot into the story for Charlie I feel this is crucial from the story s perspective as Charlie as a character is very focused on her job and her father There s very little space for anyone else and the author smartly provides a story that keeps these factors in mind I m not saying that a romance is never on the cards but so far the author hasn t provided much details and hopefully will do so when it makes sense for the character and the world settings.Drawbacks there are a couple Firstly the story draws on a lot of tropes for the side characters, fiery Italian female sidekick, cool black character who has a mysterious past, and I hope that there sdetails provided rather than for those characters to remain as they are Secondly I would have liked to see Charlie s inner emotions at work She s such a buttoned down person and I would like to seeof that into play or at least learn specifically what made her this way.CONCLUSION The Insider is a twisted story that plays the readers on every front With a multitude of misdirections, plot twists and grey characters, this second offering in the Charlie McCabe series is a refreshing take and makes me very excited for what s to come next Book 1 The Loot Book 1 The Loot This was a new series for me although it s book 2 about Charlie McCabe It was very entertaining with twisting plots and lots of humor I will defineitely readin this series by Craig Schaefer I must thank ThomasandMercer and Netgalley for giving me this Arc. I received a complimentary ARC copy of The Insider by Craig Schaefer from NetGalley and Thomas Mercer in order to read and give an honest review.I m a recent fan of Craig Schaefer having been introduced through his book, Ghosts of Gotham, which I reviewed here Although I haven t read The Loot the first book in the series, however I found this perfect as a stand alone as well.In book two,

Thomas Mercer in order to read and give an honest review.I m a recent fan of Craig Schaefer having been introduced through his book, Ghosts of Gotham, which I reviewed here Although I haven t read The Loot the first book in the series, however I found this perfect as a stand alone as well.In book two, Charlie McCabe is working with Dom and Beckett as part of the Boston Asset Protection Agency as a bodyguard hired on two separate cases The first case revolves around protecting an author and all around narcissistic jerk, Lincoln Gable, who is on a promotion tour for his controversial book The second case is a bitcomplex involving keeping alive the prime witness, Hayden Cobb, a witness to a murder case involving three dirty cops known as the East Boston Three While under Boston Asset s protection in a secret location an attempt is made on his life To Charlie and crew it appears there is a leak somewhere in the DA s office and rumours of a fourth dirty cop who could be the one trying to silence Cobb forever When a member of mob boss s Jimmy Lassiter s crew is falsely imprisoned as the hit man, he blackmails Charlie to exonerate him,putting one of her loved ones in danger Running out of time Charlie is almost pushed too far Along the way there are so many intriguing and interesting players that show up at the race this book is definitely one wild ride.I absolutely loved everything about this book, the strong, intelligent, resilient yet flawed female characters, the pacing, his twisty plot turns that draw you in and keep you voraciously reading until the end Filled with murder, mayhem and amazing plot twists which will throw you for a loop this is a fantastic book which I highly recommend This might sound a tiny bit dramatic but I don t care Craig Schaefer, will you be my Yoda You, sir, consistently allow me to escape into the worlds you create and have so many amazing plot twists, characters that grow and in general fantastic writing and it makes me stare at my own writing and wonder how I can belike you.ANYWAY now for my muchprofessional review of the upcoming second book for The Insider In this installment we see Charlie, Beckett and Dom return to protect the This might sound a tiny bit dramatic but I don t care Craig Schaefer, will you be my Yoda You, sir, consistently allow me to escape into the worlds you create and have so many amazing plot twists, characters that grow and in general fantastic writing and it makes me stare at my own writing and wonder how I can belike you.ANYWAY now for my muchprofessional review of the upcoming second book for The Insider In this installment we see Charlie, Beckett and Dom return to protect the clients that hire Boston Asset Protection The story starts of with Lincoln Gable as the client, a run of the mill idiot who enjoys talking crap and stirring up drama on his book tour Soon and I cannot stress how relieved I was that I wasn t going to spend the whole book with Gable Charlie and her team are brought on to the protection detail of Hayden Cobb, a key witness in the trial against three cops These three cops are on trial for murder and are known as the East Boston Three but there is a problem It seems like there may have been a fourth member to the group and the trio aren t talking Maybe I was relieved by the new distraction in the form of Cobb too soon.It s up to Charlie, Beckett and Dom to find answers while protecting both of these idiots Gable has paid for protection and is using every mob attack for media coverage and Cobb isn t sharing the full truth which may end up getting him, or others, killed.If life couldn t getcomplicated we also see the return of Jimmy Lassiter through some chaotic plot twists that put Charlie and her father on the line once again You d think three problems two bad clients and Lassiter in the wings Charlie would be at her wits end Well, she is We go one step further into Charlie understanding that life is an insane, twisted merry go round when she simply states I d say one crisis at a time, but life never really cooperates However that didn t stop Schaefer from introducing us to one other new player in the game and honestly Nina reminds me of some of Schaefer s other chaotic characters, specifically she reminds me of Caitlin from Schaefer s Daniel Faust series, so if you re looking for yet another character in this series to have on your radar and watch out for, Nina is Schaefer s gift to us readers.With a great pace, incredible plot and further character development not only for Charlie but for Dom, Beckett and even to a lesser extent Charlie s father and Jimmy Lassiter, you won t be disappointed with book two.Thank you NetGalley, Thomas Mercer and Craig Schaefer for the ARC I really really really like Craig Schaefer s writing Whether it s urban supernatural tales like Ghosts of Gotham or the Harmony Black Daniel Faust universe, or these Charlie McCabe books, Schaefer just tells a great story In this second in series, we get a lotinsight into what makes Charlie tick and I really enjoyed that I also really liked gettinginsight into Beckett, and I fully expect that enjoyment to continue in future titles,

ones, and set up the future nicely, leaving readers hungry forbut not hanging off the edge of a cliff by their fingertips I like that he does that with his books if you stopped reading at any given one, you would knowwas happening but not feel unsatisfied that the adventure you had just been on had stopped rather than ended Not a lot of series authors can pull that off or seem interested in doing so Many seeminterested in leaving you hanging such that you have to buy their next book to finish the story you just read, than in telling a tale that leads you to want to buy it If you like good writing, great characterization, original world building, and interesting and complex plots that keep you entertained and engaged, Schaefer is definitely for youThanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation free review copy Remember the slogan Honor Among Thieves How about calling out targets as an insider or getting framed for murder Try this on Sitting ducks Is it possible

via his publishers request to protect at all cost.So, with this said, we need to hide out and what better place than a motel in rural Pocono Mountains my hometown but also a protective cover for a low level drug dealer named Hayden Cobb sole witness of the corrupt East Boston Three.All is not kosher as the first night there someone tried to take him down.It s time for someone to take the fall because well time is money and because everyone else is now gone persay so nothing to lose.Ahhh, truth has consequences but this was remarkable Thank you to Craig, the pub, NetGalley, and Kindle for

and at strengthening her relationships Beckett is still a mystery but we learn some big details about his life Dom is a big player in this book but her character didn t grow or diminish at all Detective Glass shows some vulnerability and it s anyone s guess where things with Charlie and him will go I look very much forward to the next book in the series
