First of all, I would like to thank the author for an advanced review copy of the book for in return for an honest review.
The Butcher’s Bill is the latest thriller novel by Martin Roy Hill. In the book, NCIS agent Linus Schag is assigned to find his friend, former Navy Seal and NCIS agent, Bill Butcher, who decapitated two men and wrote Linus’ name in blood at the murder scene. Instead of finding Bill, Bill find Linus and tells him about a scandal and conspiracy before Bill disappears again. The book follows Linus’ search for Bill and the truth of the conspiracy.
This book is non-stop action from beginning to end and keeps the reader wondering what will happen next. The author depicts NCIS and it’s agents to be not as glamorous as depicted in the three television series. He depicted the jurisdiction of NCIS while investigating crimes in more of an actual setting. He loosely based this story on some crimes that actually happened during the Iraq war and keeps it thrilling and entertaining all of the way through.
