Review of ‘Wasted Space: From the Case Files of Tony Gavel Book One’ by JW Metcalf

Wasted Space (From the Case Files of Tony Gavel)Wasted Space by JW Metcalf

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tony Gavel is a ex-cop and now runs a very successful PI business. He specializes in missing person cases. His morning starts with his office being ransacked and a beautiful new client walking through his door.

This is one of the best PI books I have read. Tony Gavel is an amazing investigator that always manages to get himself into tough spots. The new case he takes on takes him for quite the twist when he finds the missing person, only to find him dead by apparent suicide. His client doesn’t believe it was suicide and neither does Tony.

The investigation just keeps going deeper and deeper as he closes in on a pimp and a bookie. He meets a special lady along the way and reveals some of his past and the trauma he went through in his last relationship and the unsolved case.

This book will take you on many different adventures and will take twists that I did not see coming. The characters are well designed and the interaction between them is realistic. I can sympathize with Tony and found him to be believable as an ex-cop and a private investigator. He is a great lead character. He is a risk taker and he is fun and interesting to follow along with.

This book will keep you guessing and keep you turning the page. The action is superb and the depth of the story is quite engaging. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from JW Metcalf and more about Tony Gavel and his adventures.
