The Authorities

authoritiesAuthor Scott Meyer is becoming one of my “go to” writers when I want to read a fun, entertaining book that’s a bit quirky and yet not trivial.  In The Authorities, a rich guy decides to assemble a private crime-fighting team and he pulls together an eclectic group of “professionals” with unique talents.  This maybe something of a cross between James Bond meets Get Smart with a pinch of Charlie’s Angels (only the rich overseer part).  The story starts when a young police officer who dreams of being a detective,  Sinclair Rutherford, gets some unwanted attention as he investigates a murder and his attempted apprehension of the suspect gets posted on YouTube.  In steps the creator of “The Authorities” and the rest, as they say, is history.
