Don Easton worked as an undercover Mountie for twenty years, including seven years in an RCMP Intelligence Unit. These experiences bring a unique, edgy realism to his writing. Subverting Justice is Easton's eleventh Jack Taggart Mystery in a series that includes Loose Ends, Above Ground, Corporate Asset, The Benefactor, and Art and Murder. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
A Delicate Matter
In the tenth Jack Taggart Mystery, Taggart goes head to head with a longtime enemy whoâ€™s been eluding him for years â€¦
Jack Taggart is once again going head to head with his nemesis, Damien Zabat, national president of the Satans Wrath Motorcycle Gang. Taggart and Zabatâ€™s lives have long been intertwined by a violent history of retribution and murder, dependent on unwritten rules of conduct â€” rules far outside the parameters of the law, but that each man feels are just. To Taggart, Zabat represents an unspeakable evil. He has eluded justice and left behind a trail of death.
As Zabat approaches retirement, his son, Buck, joins the gang. When Taggart obtains evidence to send Buck to jail, he gives Zabat two days to disclose the details of a new European cocaine connection in return for his sonâ€™s freedom. Zabatâ€™s refusal leads Taggart to gamble with his own life in a desperate attempt to destroy the man he has long been after. It is a gamble he wishes he had never taken.
Another fine entry in a series thatâ€™s been running since 2005 and shows no signs of tiring.
This 10th Taggart is a terrific action book as our hero goes up against his old nemesis, Damien Zabat.
