If you like suspense / mystery stories with a sense of place, and that place happens to be Omaha, NE, this is your book. Little Man is an excellent, novel-length send-up of the Akashic "Noir Series" of short story anthologies which are set in various American (and now international) cities. I got hooked on this genre several years ago reading Jon Talton's excellent David Mapstone novels - and this book is every bit as good as those. Author Kent Sievers combines here an honest everyman narrative voice, characters that run the gamut from "genuinely sympathetic, noble and likable mensch" to "utterly base and revulsive sociopath," and a skillfully interwoven set of subplots that will keep you guessing.

But there is more here than meets the eye: the characters in Little Man know and observe contemporary American society in some pretty incisive ways. As a photojournalist, Sievers has no doubt seen a bit of life himself, and his characters reflect this in their backstories, attitudes and observations. This is a real page-turner that kept me reading well past bedtime for a few nights - and also troubled me and made me think about the world we live in. Recommended!

Retired, after 30 years in Calif. law enforcement, I found it to be one good read! It brought back sounds, smells, the many people I've had contact with and even the department politics. If you've ever enjoyed a Wambaugh book, you will certainly enjoy reading Little Man. It puts you right in the middle of things without getting dirty. Truly enjoyable and memorable

Perfectly paced, sharply observed, and set in a city that's dear to my heart, Little Man paints Omaha with a film noir cast. Horrific happenings in the city's gritty underbelly add intrigue to the story of a good man who falls from the middle class into homelessness. Kent Sievers's captivating novel approaches this blighted Omaha from many angles -- the homeless fighting the odds and the elements, the powerful who masquerade as saints while abusing the already marginalized, the tortured angels who try to do the right thing -- and lingers on the small acts of humor and kindness that help a man living in a doghouse hold onto both dignity and hope.

Little Man will take you on a journey from a warm family's embrace, to the frigid world of homelessness, to the depths of a psychopath's relentless vision.

This book is all of the things other readers have mentioned: mysterious, perfectly paced, well researched, vivid and suspenseful; but it's also MORE than that. This is a story that scratches at the heart of who we are as a society.

What are we made of? Are we a society of citizens with integrity, who work hard and practice kindness? Or are we a society of plastic people who will go to any length to satisfy our hunger for power?

I read "Little Man" in one day as it was so engaging I had a difficult time setting it down. I was sad to come to the end of the book. The story is suspenseful, touching and well researched. I can't wait to read more of Siever's work.

It was exciting to see a post about Little Man on Facebook. I just finished reading the book, and I really really enjoyed it!! It had some surprising twists, and I loved all of the detail about Omaha. There were times I could smell (the not so pleasant) odors, and feel the wind piercing cold! I've recommended it to a few folks already and will continue to tell people about it.
I'm looking forward to Kent's next book!

Format: Paperback
Kent Sievers' "Little Man" is not only a page-turning thriller but a well-drawn study on a segment of society too many of us choose to look away from: the homeless. Your heart breaks over and over for the protagonist, Alex, who is desperately striving to make his way off the streets and return to a semblance of the life he once had even as he gets caught up in a web of corruption. Kent Sievers has incredible photojournalistic talent and instinct for storytelling and capturing detail with photographs; "Little Man" also proves that he is equal in those talents with words.

I really enjoyed this book. When you are a reader of mystery/suspense books you are able to figure out the ending and upcoming twists. This one gave me a couple of twists I wasn't expecting. The characters were well-thought out and made me root for some and really hate others. This was a great, entertaining read. I'll be waiting for Kent's next book.
