Review: N.H.I.: No Humans Involved by Ray Ellis


~Review Copy~
N.H.I.: No Humans Involved by Ray Ellis

About the book:

Fear and violence threatens to destroy the city 

Half of Treasure City is controlled by a violent street gang. The other half is controlled by fear. A rookie detective, Nate Richards, is thrust between the two. 

Abyss, a mysterious street gang moves into the valley and people have started dying. Nate’s girlfriend suddenly disappears and the gang is being targeted as the cause. 

With his partner fighting for her life—the result of a vigilante’s bullet, political pressure from above, and time running out to find his missing girlfriend, Nate has to overcome the darkness that has taken over the city and threatening to consume his soul? Forced to fight to stay on the case, he has to work against his command and the elements of the streets while trying to hold on to his faith that seems to make less and less sense as details unfold. 

With darkness growing and evil seeming to swell, will Nate have enough time to solve the murder and discover the identity of the new gang leader before his girlfriend becomes the latest victim in the growing violent total. Will he succumb to the pressure to get the job done by any means necessary, or will he become part of the problem and prove that there are No Humans Involved.

My thoughts:


N.H.I. is the first book I've read by Ray Ellis, but I certainly hope it's not the last - I really want to read D.R.T. (book two in this series).

N.H.I. starts out with Detective Nate Richards investigating the crime scene of a teenage boy's murder (possibly gang related), which made me interested in the story pretty much from then on!

I loved most of the characters and the way a few acted towards each other. Nate and Lieutenant Brown did not get along very well which brought about some pretty hilarious scenes.

A man in N.H.I. "wants" a certain woman and even attempts to rape her - because of that and other similar things I think this book is best for mature readers. Also, "Oh My ***" was said once, but I'm not entirely sure of the context (whether talking to God or not).

N.H.I. was very believable and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The suspense was great even though you pretty much knew the culprits throughout.

Overall, I really enjoyed N.H.I. and recommend it if you enjoy a good cop thriller/suspense novel. I'm looking forward to the next Nate Richards Novel, D.R.T., - it sounds great!!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
