I discovered David Grace a few months ago and have downloaded most of his books. I have to say they are well written, and definitely strong in terms of plot, and dialogue. I really enjoy his use of imagery.

Unlike one of the reviewers I did not find the book to be riddled with errors. Sure the Kindle adds an extra paragraph mark here and there, but that should not detract from the writing. And apart from a few spelling errors I did not detect any major grammatical issues. Perhaps the reviewer should give Mr. Grace some concrete examples of what he saw?

I will continue to buy David Grace's books as I personally think he is a great writer with well-thought out stories.

"Easy Target" by David Grace was a good detective/mystery read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Greg and his wife had moved to Varity, Kansas where he had changed his livelihood from working for the NYPD to teaching 'felony murder' classes at KCU. Life quickly had changed when his wife Carolyn had died suddenly from a hit and run accident. But was this really a accident? In "Easy Target" you will find very interesting plots...with several stories in this novel and with well developed characters...all making this read a intriguing read. This author really does his magic with this read presenting quite a story especially with the help of Greg Websters one student ....as a class assignment.."began researching local violent deaths and Carolyn's accident began to look more and more like the latest in a series of murders" and now this novel takes off where I say ... Were these all accidents or are we dealing with a serial killer? Now, this is the part that I will say you must pick up this read.."Easy Target" to see what, how and what Mr. Grace will touch us with a great written story that you will find hard to put down until the last word only leaving ...."He should have heeded the old warning: Be careful what you wish for."

I found "Easy Target" easy excellent read that I would recommend to the reader especially if you like a good mystery read.

Easy Target

Greg Webster retired after twenty-five years wth NYPD and he and his wife Carolyn moved to Varity, Kansas where he taught felony murder classes at KCU.

Then Gregg's life changed when Carolyn died in a hit and run accident miles from her home as she biked on a dark road. He had two students that felt there was a much higher death rate in their town and started retracing the data to see that the police had barely investigated a series of deaths. Then they connected the dots to discover there was a serial killer in their town.........

David Grace spins quite a tale that left me breathless, although I quickly determined the killer. Gregg includes his two students, a sappy love starved co-worker who thought himself a partner in their late night activity to look for clues then he almost has a heart attack. then Gregg faces the ultimate decision, could he kill the killer in cold blood?

More About the Author

David Grace's first novel, "The Chocolate Spy", (under the name David Alexander) was published in hard cover 1978 and in paperback in 1980. Since then he has written fifteen more novels, almost entirely in the area of crime fiction.

Some of his favorite crime novels are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies","Shooting Crows At Dawn", "Doll's Eyes", "Easy Target", "True Faith" and "Stolen Angel".

Most of his books fall into the broad categories of police procedurals, detective stories, serial-killer novels, and action and suspense thrillers. Almost none are puzzle, whodonit stories. Rather, most of his novels are based on a strong emotional foundation, fleeing killers, disappeared children, courageous heroes and vicious criminals.

"The Concrete Kiss" earned a Kirkus Reviews "Critic's Pick"

"Set in the modern day, this straightforward, fast-paced detective novel cages a truly twisted villain."

"The reader is thrust into a page-turning, clever narrative that continually morphs from police procedural, thriller, courtroom drama, and gritty evaluation of a serial rapist and killer."

"...the relentless pace allows for little introspection."

"Grace relishes the accurate and disturbing details, providing top-quality entertainment...."

"...a relentless story."

"Well-written, engaging and sure to keep you up."

--- Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews said this about "Shooting Crows At Dawn":

"Revenge and justice burn across Texas in this gripping, grisly shootout."

His crime short stories have been published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine and he shares the story credit on The Outer Limits episode, "Joy Ride", starring Cliff Robertson. Additionally, several of his science fiction short stories have been published in Analog Magazine, some as David Grace and some under the name David Alexander.

He has also written one fantasy novel, "The Accidental Magician", originally published by Pocket Books as "Fane" (under the name David Alexander). His sole general fiction novel is "Daniel", the story of an Air Force pilot shot down over Vietnam, imprisoned in the infamous Hoa Lo prison (the Hanoi Hilton) and what happens to him when he returns home.
