“A fun and intriguing drama combo mystery, Impact is a hard hitting ‘who done it’ that makes you want to buckle up and ride right along with Detective Sergeant Noah Harkham. He’s got a bit of a troubled past, with the ghost of his old partner keeping him from moving on, but the Captain thinks it’s time to get on with it and has assigned him a new partner in Detective Franks. Now they’ve got a chance to get the measure of each other while they are solving a particularly sad case of hit and run.

The only thing low about this book was the page count. I could have ridden along with Harkham and solved another ten mysteries before I got bored. Noah was an excellent cop character, not hard and boring like I’m used to in most popular crime fiction. He is a very interesting, smart, and slightly broken guy…even though he says he’s not. He tries to come off as the jaded, calm, collected cop, and in some ways he might be, but in others he’s just a guy with a troubled past. Very interesting character dynamics between Harkham and Franks. It’s hard to call it banter, what with the curt barks and sharp quips, but I really enjoyed how they interacted together, particularly nearing the end of the story. J.I. O’Neal writes cynically and effectively. It wouldn’t surprise me if this was the first of many excellent crime and mystery novels we see coming our way from O’Neal. A solid showing!”
