Having lost his P.I. license in the aftermath of When One Man Dies
, Jackson Donne is forced back into action when his brother-in-law's restaurant is bombed and his brother-in-law is kidnapped. Part of a multi-viewpoint, multi-generational adventure, Donne must figure out who is targeting his family before it's too late.
The Evil That Men Do
improves in every way on White's aforementioned debut novel. Though there are multiple viewpoints, the chapters flow more readily, building better suspense. The plot relies less on information from the Donne stories
, though reading them would add to one's understanding of Donne. The main draw for me was Donne's strained relationship with his family. One would expect anyone to rise to the occasion and protect family, but Donne also has to reconnect with feelings for his family along the way.
