Book Review of :  A Colossal Injustice


Miguel Angel Hernandez, Jr., author of A Colossal Injustice, A Griffin Knight Corporate Murder Mystery, has created another spellbinding thriller in his Griffin Knight Series. To establish a time in the future, the author places Griffin Knight in the Seattle-Tacoma airport that has been renamed. He introduces the reader to futuristic AI technology, including Smart-Goggles, and a Smart-Link System. Knight views the cityscape of Seattle from the point of view of a New Yorker who has rarely visited this city. On this trip, he is not an officer of the Seattle Police Department but an NYC investigator with no jurisdiction. He had been asked to help find the murderer of Dylan Walker the COO, and CFO of the Colossus Corporation. 

The plot is revealed through the narratives of several characters. Each is set apart in different chapters. The accounts chronicle the backstories that prompted Griffin to take on the challenge of investigating Dylan’s murder.

Before his untimely death, Dylan had hacked into Colossus's financial mainframe. His peek into the records exposed Irregularities that appeared to indicate theft, but Dylan didn’t report his suspicions to the owner and CEO of Colossus, Sapphire Rushland, because he had no proof of who was skimming or where the funds were going. However, before his murder, he had hidden a file of his research in the computer system.

Griffin links up with a Seattle bodyguard, Felix, and begins an undercover investigation with the aid of an expert computer hacker, Kalyx. The two encounter a rogue team of security guards, drug lords, and other criminals. The plot leads the cops to investigate an abandoned warehouse owned by Colossus, a secret stash of computer equipment is found but is marred by a shootout. Their thrilling shootouts and undercover tactics add suspense and action to the story. Suspects are narrowed down, but motive blocks the investigation. Finally, Dylan’s murder becomes personal.

The author creates believable characters. Griffin is the invincible cop with good looks and the intelligence to ferret out the perpetrator. His description of Seattle’s Queen of Crime will make the reader envious of the woman’s intelligence, savvy, and gutsiness. Others suspected to be involved in the embezzlement scheme are equally picturesque.

Hernandez weaves you through a maddening labyrinth of clues that edges you seamlessly toward its climax. Watch for a sequel to Griffin Knight.
