I have so many books on my kindle that I haven't read past the first chapter. This book grabbed me right away and thrust me into a world I did not know. I definitely had to look up some things. A specific Jimmy Hendrix reference. OTB. Grand national.

Incredibly engaging and powerfully worded. I love how the author leave things to our imagination sometimes but spells out what we need to know for the flavor of the scenes.

Waiting eagerly for Crane's next Job.

Not too bad for a short book. Spelling errors were at a minimum which is refreshing for an e-book. The author keeps talking about the Buick Grand National. Anyone that knows anything about these cars knows that nobody would drive one in the winter in the Binghamton area - that would be suicide. Also, they did not have a leather interior; it was cloth with a Grand National emblem on the bucket seats, and leather was not available as an option. In fact, in 1987 the only option offered was a locking gas cap.

Cooper's Daughter is a fun quick read. I couldn't put it down and read it all in one sitting. Impressive writing to get the story all told with interesting characters (complete with their own back stories), solid plot and compelling details -- all in this compact format. I think Mr. Yost is onto something with this short-form genre. Great idea - and hoping he's at work on the next!

Fast paced and action packed. It felt like I was watching a movie. Easy read but with typos here and there. Typical washed out and unmarried male protagonist but relatable nonetheless. I recommend this book.

Rick Crane has serious personal problems and an "Iffy" moral code that allows him to move through the underworld on his way to morning Mass with little concern. I look forward to his future exploits.

I felt like this book read itself to me. This story entrapped me to which I hadn't noticed how quickly I read it. I truly enjoyed reading every page of Coopers Daughter! Well done Mark Yost!

Cooper's Daughter (A Rick Crane Noir) was an interesting read for me. I grew up in this region of Upstate New York, so I can vividly picture many of the places that are described in this story. I read a few pages about a week ago and had to stop due to a project for work. Today, I picked it up again and I found myself so intrigued that I read it through in one sitting. I particularly liked the characters of Rick Crane, Mary Walsh Rooney and Gene Sobeleski. This is a relatively short book and it is a good choice for when you have limited time to read. I found fault with only one fact in this story. The Colt Python is a .357 Magnum, the Colt Anaconda would be the revolver chambered in .44 Magnum. I have read many of Mr. Yost's pieces from the Wall Street Journal and other publications, so I know he has a solid knowledge of firearms - what's up with that?!! I look forward to reading more installments from Rick Crane. Good job, Mr. Yost.
