The Tailor of Riga by Jonathan Harries (Book Review #812)


The tailor of Riga is a crime thriller story about a family that has been assassins for 70 generations. Dating back to the 19th century, the tale begins with the protagonist expressing his doubts over joining his assassin family and how it all started when he was only 17, drinking liquor, and was considering initiation into the ‘family business.’

The story is cited by the first-person narrative and then carries on as the third. The story is fast-paced. The plot contains many twists and turns, keeping the reader intrigued and wanting to know more. The title of the story comes from the great grandfather known as the Tailor of Riga.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The author’s fifth novel is enticing. I was expecting many historical references to the fictional story; however, instead, the author focused on military action, mysteries, ancestries, and family bonds. The novel was passionate and filled with adventure, humor, and creativity.

I recommend this book to crime thriller fans.
