Review

"A tale of big-city mobsters, brilliant killers, and a compellingly real
U.S. marshal—you won’t want to put it down."
--Jeffery Deaver

From the Inside Flap

A U.S. MARSHAL DRIVEN BY GRIEF AND RAGE...

A MAFIA DON WHO TRAFFICS IN HUMAN LIVES?

A KILLER WITH THE MOST CHILLING PEDIGREE OF ALL...

The Justice Department is hunting Sam Manelli, the godfather of one of America?s biggest crime families. Now an execution gone bad hands the government the ammunition they need. But they can?t do it without Dylan Devlin, the sociopathic hit man whose testimony will put Manelli away for good. Haunted by the crash that killed his wife and blinded his son, U.S. Marshal Winter Massey knows that safety is only an illusion. Now a man who couldn?t protect his own family has to keep a killer and his wife alive?at any cost.

But when the government?s witness protection program explodes in a horrifying hail of bullets and blood, Massey knows he?s up against a killer who can go anywhere, be anyone, and strike at any time. For Massey is about to be blindsided by an adversary more lethal than the mob, more dangerous than any psychopath?and he won?t see his killer coming?until it?s too late.

You might remember a book from 1996 titled THE LAST FAMILY, John Ramsey Miller's debut novel. Miller, a journalist and photographer of some renown, had a winner on his hands. A fast-paced thriller dealing with retribution and rough justice, THE LAST FAMILY left its readers wanting more. It was published to critical and popular acclaim, and more and even greater things were expected from Miller. Readers waited. And waited. And waited. It appeared as if Miller had retired. Fortunately, that was not the case.

INSIDE OUT introduces U.S. Marshal Winter Massey, a somewhat unassuming gentleman who attempts to balance the twin duties of job and single parenthood while keeping his priorities straight. At the beginning of the novel, Massey is reluctantly inducted into a team assigned to protect Dylan Devlin, a contract killer who is taking a turn as a Federal witness against Sam Manelli, possibly the last of the old-school gangsters. Manelli's reach doesn't stop at his cell bars; knowing that Devlin's life is the only thing that stands between him and his freedom, Manelli arranges a contract hit on Devlin. The resulting carnage leaves the government's case in a shambles, and the reputation and life of Greg Nations, Massey's best friend, tarnished.

But the contract is not quite complete. Devlin's beautiful wife Sean escaped the hit as the result of Massey's intervention. She apparently was blissfully unaware of her husband's occupation, yet she too is now the target of a group of seemingly omnipresent assassins. Meanwhile, Massey is attempting to salvage Nations's reputation, despite orders from his superior to the contrary.

There are a couple ways of reading Miller's INSIDE OUT, as a great novel with multiple sub-sub-plots, or as a great novel with one big complicated (but not too complex) plot. Either way this is one heck of an enjoyable thriller.

Winter Massey is an United States Deputy Marshal, who after a phone call from long standing friend Greg Nations, expands his specialty from tracking down fugitives to working a Witness Security detail for assassin Dylan Devlin and his lovely wife Sean. Dylan was a contract killer for Sam a godfather type figure in the New Orleans Mob, hence the need for protection. However even some of the best marshals fail to protect the target, leading a reader to think oh oh end of story...Wrong after Dylan is hit the real action/intrique begins.

Miller does an excellent job building the principle characters into people a reader wishes to get to know better, and luckily this is the first of a projected Winter Massey trilogy.

Winter is a complex widower whose son is blinded in the plane accident that killed his wife. Rush is a very likable boy as well, and Miller paints a teasing glimpse of what it must be like to be a young person that is "handicapped" with loss of sight. Rush and Lydia, Winter's mother are both intricite pieces to a plot whose focus is largely around family.

This novel is virtually non-stop action, that would make an excellent movie as well as the casting is right and the actors do not overly play their roles. There are stereotypes in this book which is one of the reason it recieved 4 stars instead of five. Overall a great read anytime but I would credit the publishers for releasing the first entry when they did as it really seems with the action and pacing to be a custom made beach read.

John Ramsey Miller's first novel, THE LAST FAMILY was an amazing suspense thriller and I waited patiently for another offering. I'd heard rumors of a new Miller novel for the past several years, and I was delighted to find out that he had three novels being released in six months. The main character is a US Marshal, Winter Massey, a single father raising a blind 13 year-old son.

I bought and devoured INSIDE OUT in one sitting (here comes the sun time), and over the course of the next weeks read it over again slowly to savor it. All of Miller's plot twists were intelligent and unexpected and just when I knew I had things figured out, Mr. Miller jerked the rug from under me. His books move at the speed of fright, but he develops his characters so they feel like real people. Miller's style is crisp and there is not a wasted word or a word too many. My only disappointment was that the story ended. Don't get me wrong; the ending was dead-on and wholly satisfying, but I was left wishing I could follow the characters beyond the last chapter. Well, I was able to do just that. The second book in the series, UPSIDE DOWN, was even better and took up with the Masseys a few months later. I was able to rejoin the characters I had grown to care about in the first book and follow the perils of the most amazing young girl in modern fiction. On Aguust 28th I intend to be reading my copy of the final book in the series, SIDE BY SIDE, and I know it will be wonderful.

...And then the wait begins for the next dose of Miller

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dylan Devlin is driving around New Orleans when he gets in a car accident and his trunk pops open, spilling out the bodies of two men he murdered on orders of Sam Manelli, a former Mafiosi who has gone legitimate. Sam bequeathed his illegal enterprises to his second-in-command Johnny Russo. Devlin, who has killed over a dozen men on Manelli's orders, makes a deal with the federal prosecutor and is taken into protective custody.

Dylan is taken to Rook Island off the coast of North Carolina and his wife Sean is brought to him. Federal Marshal Winter Massey is assigned to watch them along with other U.S. Marshals, but a group of men find out Dylan's location and kills everyone on the island except for Sean and Winter, who survive until help arrives. Sean goes into hiding knowing that Sam is looking for her and Winter is kidnapped by the head of a black ops agency with links to the Rock Island fiasco. Both Sean and Winter are targets and it will take a miracle to outwit their enemies who want them dead.

John Ramsey Miller, author of THE LAST FAMILY, has written a compelling and exciting action thriller starring a likeable protagonist, a widower raising his blind son who still misses his wife who died in the same accident that injured their son. Winters is attracted to Sean and goes beyond the call of duty to make sure he is safe. Be on the lookout for UPSIDE DOWN which continues the adventures of Winter coming next month.
