Praise for the novels of Robert Gregory Browne

I would usually write a review for an individual book that I have recently read. But in this particular case, I have to make an exception with KILL HER AGAIN and DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN because of Browne's uncanny growth as a supernatural thriller author, specifically when it comes to the portrayal of female protagonists.

Browne's storytelling abilities are incredibly unique in terms of the characters, plotline, pacing, his descriptive power and especially his dialogue. But when he wrote KILL HER AGAIN and DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN (which I read consecutively), Browne excellently creates two powerful women who are placed in extraordinary circumstances. With Anna McBride(KILL HER AGAIN), we see a tough, no-nonsense FBI agent who fears for her own sanity because of nightmarish visions she experiences. Browne ups the ante with DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN's Beth Crawford, an LA prosecutor who suffers memory loss (caused by brain trauma), resulting in her trying to solve a mystery that involves her missing sister and a mass murder at a Mexican desert.

What is brilliant about these two novels is Browne interweaves a realistic strength within these two characters without them losing their empathy, compassion and their femininity. Too often have I read (and especially seen on TV) thrillers and crime dramas where the heroines try to behave like men---as though they received a shot of testosterone---in the effort to show strength and courage. Browne doesn't do this: he creates three dimensional women who are both strong AND vulnerable. And by maintaining this balance, readers are drawn into the stories even more.

Needless to say, Browne doesn't ignore the heroine's male counterparts/love interests. Both men compliment the heroines beautifully and the chemistry that is shown in both books are truly superb, showing once again that Robert Browne is an artist of the written word.

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN was wonderful! I downloaded it to my Kindle a little after midnight and thought I'd just read a chapter or two and turn out the light, but I couldn't put it down. At 6:15 in the morning I finished. I haven't done that in a very long time. It was a fantastic read. Great twists, turns and fabulous characters. I'll definitely be checking out more of Mr. Browne's books but I won't be starting them at midnight! From now on I'll start reading in the daylight hours. I've learned my lesson!

Robert Gregory Browne's, "The Innocent Ones", first and foremost, grabbed my attention right from the beginning as I have lived in Arizona, and San Diego County, thus, mixed cultures of the Mexican and American people are my normal zone, cross-country crimes an ever present reality, and I really loved the Mexican "street-slang", and words used throughout the book - understood and appreciated! When the two story lines merge into one, wow, totally awesome concept.With first-hand knowledge of the power of destructive cults, I commend Mr. Browne on his excellent research and insight into how they operate, and "what a tangled web they must weave" to carry on ALL the illegal activities they engage in! Also struggling with brain injury recovery myself, I was just "one" with the heroine in this story. My Kindle went everywhere with me for 24hrs. This book so accurately demonstrates the absolute cruelty and appalling control and depravity of cults controlled, absolutely, by a charismatic leader, and exposes people to what depths they will sink to in the name of their so-called "god". Get this book and read it today! This author did his research, and it is a horrifying portrayal of the active cults enslaving, torturing and killing many innocents in the world today. 5 glowing stars and a standing ovation! Thank you, RGB!

There aren't many authors I'd spend my last dime on, but Robert Gregory Browne is definitely one of them.

I've been a fan of Mr. Browne's work since his debut Kiss Her Goodbye, and with this newest release, Down Among the Dead Men, he doesn't disappoint. My first thought after reading this book, was WOW! How is this book not tearing up the charts?? I read it in one day because I couldn't put it down. His talent for grabbing onto the reader and pulling them into his world is exceptional. The characters and settings come to life on the pages.

If you're looking for a great summer read, pick up this book!

I'll start this off by admitting a few things up front. First off, I don't normally read this genre. Secondly, I was given a copy over purchasing it myself. That being said....

This one book made me a fan of Mr. Browne's writing. It has memorable characters, believable action, and keeps an amazing pace. I was able to empathize with the characters and situations almost without hesitation.

With some books set in the modern world, I'll go do a fact check if something doesn't ring true about a description or location. Mr. Browne writes with such confidence and accuracy I never felt something was off. He's also what I call an intelligent author. Never once did I feel like he was dumbing down the story, being repetitive, or over explaining things.

I've gotten two of his books now, and will look at others. If you want a roller coaster, pick this up.
