Review - The Heart of Darkness Club by Gary Reilly

In this third book of novelist Gary Reilly's Asphalt Warrior series, Murph once again fails spectacularly at staying out of the lives of those he transports the second he picks up a "mover" named Trowbridge. "Movers" in Murph's world are not to be confused with "movers and shakers." Trowbridge pays his fare with a crisp five-dollar bill. Later, Murph finds an enigmatic hand-written note on the bill. Murph can't get the message out of his head, believing it was specifically directed at him. He sets off in search of his passenger, the meaning of the message, and the inner workings of his very soul.

4 stars

The Heart of Darkness Club by Gary Reilly is the third book in the Asphalt Warrior series.  Murph continues his streak of pledging to not get involved in the personal lives of his fairs and continues to fail.  Murph once again finds himself involved in a police investigation due to involvement with one of his passengers.  It's a bit hard to say anything more than that without giving anything away.

Though I haven't read the first book in the series the second and third work well as standalone books.  The sense of humor that Murph has really makes the book stand out.  There is always a bit of a serious situation going on and it makes the irreverent thoughts and comments by Murph that much more amusing.  I really enjoy the writing style that Gary used for these books.  This is another series that I will be keeping an eye out for future releases.
