Goodman, Gibson and Partners

A Goodman Crime Novel


A story of motives, consequences and unexpected conclusions that will confound any preconceptions... Goodman, Gibson and Partners is a psychological crime thriller that will have crime fiction enthusiasts enthralled by its unexpected twists and turns. Protagonist Adam is an older man caught up in family relationships and an unwise liaison who has a complicated tale to tell when it comes to whether he is guilty of sexually assaulting 14-year old Rachel Brooks. With family drama threatening to get out of control, Adam is attacked seemingly at random in a car park, and when the supposed victim of assault interrupts a family gathering, there are developments and repercussions no one was expecting. Thus unravels a complex crime story, which is full of false blame and biased figures in charge. At the end of the novel, the story takes an unexpected turn that will have readers questioning their deductive abilities. “We live, after all, in a 21st century Western liberal democracy, where miscarriages of justice and unsound convictions are rare, but where they do occasionally occur, go on to be recognised and rectified.” This is Adam's sardonic take on his brush with the criminal justice system. In the event, it is kinder on him than his struggle to come to grips with what family members are up to. Unlike many crime thrillers, Goodman, Gibson and Partners delves into the minds of individuals driven to commit crimes and of those affected by those crimes. It is a story that will leave readers asking whether the truth is ever easy to find.

Adam is accused of sexually assaulting a fourteen year old girl. He then gets attacked in a car park and this sets a whole sequence of events on the roll.
The investigation of his alleged crimes was interesting and I couldn't wait to see how everything unfolded. Highly recommended.

Suspenseful and timely. If you aren't already paranoid or worried about Big Brother, you will be. Power and corruption at the highest levels threaten the very existence of government employees and reporters who want to expose it.

4 out of 5 stars

This thriller is about an older man charged with raping his girlfriend's teenage daughter. His son gets assaulted while the families out discussing his case and the story really picks up from there. I really enjoyed reading this author and would recommend this book.
