Review

I Wanna Be Adored

...this is even better than book one... Denmon's novel takes readers on a high speed tale of loyalty, murder, corruption which leaves you going through a whole host of emotions. His writing style is gritty but very believable... Nicholas Denmon has created a series of books that could hold its head up next to Mario Puzo's Godfather series.

Between The Lines

...the writing is very descriptive and evocative, quite graphic too, and so lends itself to visualisation very well. I also like the way the suspense is built with each chapter coming from a different character's perspective.  Kept me guessing all the way!

Doubleshot Book Reviews

To say that Nicholas Denmon can spin a yarn that will keep you looking over your shoulder every few seconds just knowing the guy behind you is ready to fit you with cement shoes is an understatement...Denmon creates a world of such vivid description...I love the characters that have been created for this series and the attention to detail...just makes this book pop. Buffalo Soldiers... begs to be read in a single sitting.

Cosa Nostra News

Nicholas ...writes some bad-ass Mafia fiction.

About the Author

Nicholas Denmon studied English at the University of Florida. He started story telling from the moment he could talk and has spent a lifetime perfecting the art. His life has been varied, giving him no shortage of material. Some of his unique experiences include growing up with an eccentric mother, having six brothers and sisters (of which he is the middle-younger child), a perfectionist father, an evil step-mother, a college life to rival Tucker Max, and working for politicians on the Presidential as well as local stage. He has been, at times, a devout Catholic, a closet atheist, and an honorary member of the Jewish tribe. Nick's joy of art knows little in the way of limitations, as he loves unique paintings, music, acting, film, and of course writing.

I have to admit Nicholas Denmon is always one of my favorite authors. I love his writing. I love everything he writes. And he never ceases to fascinate me.
But... Why, oh why did you leave me hanging on a cliff like that?
Well, wouldn't say it was really a big cliffhanger, but nontheless it left me open-mouthed and with a burning desire to read more. So, please write the 3rd book fast! Please! I need to read it!
Back to Buffalo Soldiers:
I loved this book! I was so absorbed in it that I couldn't stop reading! I read it while having dinner, I read it while having a bath, I read it in bed at night until I fell asleep for exhaustion, I read it while having breakfast, I read it while having lunch, I read it on my laptop and on my smartphone too!
I can say I probably liked this book even more than "For Nothing".
All this considering this is not usually my genre. Usually romances, vampires and demons are my favorite reads. But for this author, for these books, I had to make an exception. They are too good not to read them! They are so good that it didn't matter what genre I was reading. It had all I need in a book. Action, blood, fights, tension, suspense, investigations, kidnappings, escapes, some romance too after all, and fascinating characters.

Although in "For Nothing" Alex was my favorite character (well, okay maybe I was even a little in love with him) and I was also kind of disappointed that he wasn't a very active character in Buffalo Soldiers, I found it also kind of right after all, because it had to make room to some new characters, like Kira, Ivan, Sydney, Briggs, Richard LoGalbo and others.
Let's talk about Kira: I can't say I totally liked her, especially in the beginning, treating her friends like crap and everything.

Nicholas Denmon's debut thriller For Nothing had me in awe from its first pages, and Buffalo Soldiers is no different. It is different, though, all the while keeping with its Upstate NY Mafia Tale tone, if that's even possible. But it is, you know, possible, for this author, who is not just talented with words but in his writing is insightful, unique, and beautiful.

If there was one thing I never expected from this series it was to fall in love. In For Nothing it was not just Rontego but the things found between the lines like the elegance of murder and the necessary evils that play alongside revenge. In Buffalo Soldiers it was Ivan. I was happy to see Raf again (like catching up with an old friend if you get my drift), but Ivan was who I was after as I flipped the pages. From his introduction I was enticed by him. For reasons this brilliant author should only have the right to give away, it turned out. Ivan, and Buffalo - I was in love. I am, in love. With the art of telling a darn good story, and reading one. With Buffalo Soldiers, for having achieved this feat, this level of otherworldly wonder where the mafia meets love meets tragedy meets family. You want to shake these characters. I mean, you don't have to live in this warzone of fire and regret and loss... so much loss. But that's how it is.

Denmon's mafia stories aren't just mafia stories or crime thrillers; they are not genre books. They are these beautifully written books that really make you feel something with each character you meet. It offers so much extra to fans of crime suspense everywhere.

I was so happy to come across this author, Buffalo Soldiers is in the genre of days gone by, forties feel, thriller, black and white, smoky atmosphere.
It is totally riveting and will draw you in from the beginning, you will feel part of the story, trying to solve the mysteries as they occur, I completely and whole heartedly recommend this story, it's vintage with a twist of neuvo!

The predecessor to Buffalo Soldiers left me with one heck of a cliffhanger. I had half a mind to send an email to the author, but then again a good cliffhanger is usually enough to push someone to get the next book, and I have :)

This one pretty much picks up where the other left off. Some new surprises and lots of reasons to avoid working and chores to simply keep on reading.

As I said of the first, the writing is just beautiful. I recommend this to anyone and look forward to the next book in the series, as well as more books from this author!!! I've never been to NY but with such beautiful descriptions, it was easy for me to forget. 10 stars!!!

Nicholas Denmon's sequel to For Nothing was well worth the wait. He's a great writer and his characters are very interesting. You may fall in love with them, though.

I would recommend this book highly. You will enjoy the mystery and excitement!!

Nicholas Denmon has really hit his stride in this, the second book in his Upstate New York Mafia Tale. Blending a mixture of familiar faces with some carefully crafted new characters, Buffalo Soldiers will take you on a journey that begins at a prison's gates, and ends at the gates to hell. A masterful storyteller, Denmon deftly takes us down several parallel paths that link up for a finale that will leave you not sitting on the edge of your seat, but hiding behind it.

While I would highly recommend reading For Nothing first for obvious reasons, Buffalo Soldiers stands on its own due to a great job by the author at filling in the back stories of the key players. These aren't just two dimensional characters who suffer from stereotypes. At times we sympathize with the villains and at other times we are angered at the police. All are flawed and all have redeeming qualities. It is this depth and realism that really draws you in and gets hold of you.

A common technique used in crime/suspense novels is to shift the perspective and story from character to character allowing the author to build suspense and keep the prose fresh. Denmon has mastered this style, but instead of a roller-coaster ride where there are some fast parts intertwined with some slower sections, the tension never lets up throughout this novel. The expression "can't put it down" has never been more accurate.
