The Color of Greed by Jack Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When the young husband of a wealthy heiress is found dead on his yacht floating off the California coastline, his death is ruled an accident and the case is closed. The grieving widow, certain her husband was murdered but getting no help from the police, turns to Raja Williams, a wealthy Oxford-educated private investigator, who has dedicated his resources to help those in need of justice. When Raja arrives in Los Angeles and more bodies begin to pile up, he suspects a coverup that may go as high up as the governor. With the help of his partner Vinny, a highly skilled hacker, Raja must unravel the case before everyone involved, including the two of them, winds up dead.


This story is about a private investigator from a wealthy Caribbean background, who believes in justice for all, and helps people in need without requesting monetary payment. He is hired by a wealthy woman, Clarice Hope, when her much younger husband turns up dead and the police rule it an accidental death. Clarice believes there is foul play and hires Raja to help her prove it. After meeting with Clarice Hope and doing some initial investigating, he also believes her husband was murdered. Raja and his computer hacker sidekick, Vinny, who is not only a genius, but also gorgeous enough to be a supermodel, by the way, set out to prove that Hope was murdered. The couple make a team worth cheering for. Their journey is action packed and believable, yet still has the ability to amaze you. The reader is lead through a labyrinth of political corruption, the sexual deviant underworld, and green energy fraud. The death count keeps climbing, plot twists and the way evidence is revealed keep you guessing and turning the page for more.
I strongly recommend this book if you are a fan of mystery suspense novels.
