Ohio 10 is a work of fiction in the crime, suspense, and thriller subgenres. It is best suited to the mature reading audience owing to scenes of graphic violence and some use of explicit language and was penned by author A. V. Smith. In this truly thrilling tale of crooked figures in high places, we find ourselves immersed in a complex detective tale. As the title suggests, Ohio plays host to the tale, with a team from Columbus dead set on uncovering political corruption and bad cops with ulterior motives. But how will they sort the good from the wicked, and can they do so in time?
It can be tricky to maintain the suspense of a good mystery novel for the whole length of the tale, but author A. V. Smith does an impressive job of maintaining both pace and mystery in this intriguing and action-packed tale. One of the features of the novel which really enhances this feeling is the construction of the dialogue, which helps to sneak tidbits of vital information and precious clues into the dialogue, moving the plot forward without the need for huge chunks of expansive prose. I also found the character journey to be really interesting, with the various figures of the team complementing one another with a surprising set of combined skills. I felt each was given an appropriate time to shine without there being one specific hero for too long. Overall, I’d certainly recommend Ohio 10 to fans of immersive crime dramas with atmosphere and complexity aplenty.
