Review

From Publishers Weekly
Fans of complex serial killer novels will find some unexpected developments in Brown's series debut, set in New York City. Josh Ingram, a former FBI profiler, is pulled back into his former life when a brutal killer, dubbed O'Henry by the press because of the discovery of one of his victims outside a funeral home of that name, resurfaces. The murderer has left the severed head of a woman on a Central Park bench. Inside the head is a typed message that suggests O'Henry anticipated Josh would be on the scene, accompanying FBI agent Rachael Tanner. The note threatens the families of Rachel's supervisor and the NYPD commissioner. The stakes rise after the murder of Josh's best friend, Arthur, a timid book dealer who found a contract in a book jacket linking the current New York governor, William Elhert, to a 1945 acquisition of shares in a German company. The major reveal will surprise some genre devotees.

Interesting characters, attention to detail, well researched with witty dialogue and an intricate plot with a satisfying ending. T. G. Brown offers up a very fine debut novel. I look forward to meeting Josh Ingram in future books.

O'Henry was a great read. The multiple locations and sub plots were well woven together. The characters were well developed and the leading characters clearly identified. The twists at the end were a surprise. Looking forward to his next novel.

The psychotic mind sees the world through its own prism and bends that world to its choosing . . . tell me, was the head close to the body? – Oliver Wilson, Psychiatrist – O’Henry

That’s when he hit her, when he saw how scared she was. He couldn’t bear it that she was frightened and asking for help. Asking for help is wrong. Because there isn’t any such thing as help in this world. ― Ryū Murakami, Piercing

The call comes at the most inopportune time. Well, not really a call so much as the rooster tail of dust that precedes a country Sheriff bringing bad news. And for Josh Ingram, long past his life as an FBI’s Profiling Division, catfish noodling, pulling drafts at his marina bar, and writing his next best selling novel now has to go on hold, as he and FBI Agent Rachael Tanner struggle to find the serial killer known as O’Henry, who has come roaring back after a seven-year absence in a wave of blood and publicity. When Josh’s best friend, a mild mannered bookseller is killed by a retired mafia mechanic, Josh is drawn deep into a story of murder, madness and political intrigue that could cost him more than he ever expected.

This first entry in the Josh Ingram series by Terry Brown shows great potential for this new author. Tight characterizations, deep emotional world building and beautifully developed storylines woven together into a tale of murder, madness and political intrigue makes Terry Brown a new author to watch.

I received the book from Mr. Brown in return for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own.

Josh Ingram is a character many will identify with. He's still reeling from a personal loss, has a confused future and just happens to be very good at an occupation he stepped away from and is now needed and called back into action. He's a man of many talents, writer, FBI profiler, and some dark history that makes him lethal and dangerous. His journey is detailed and well written by first time author T.G. Brown. I enjoyed the read and look forward to reading the next book. Josh may have too much on his plate and hopefully in the next book there will be more about him, his potential love life and less diversions from the case. All that said, this is a very good first book and my hats off to you. Well done.

I tried to put up with the improper word choices (sorry, but "shudder" is a verb), the confusing punctuation (read: bad grammar), and the stilted and uncomfortably forced dialogue. But at the point that the lead FBI investigator started weaving in and out of traffic, clearly endangering all other cars on the road, and then crashed into a construction site to avoid a truck--not in a chase, just getting to a location--I finally realized my eyes actually hurt from rolling so much. Why should I put myself through torturous reading for yet another serial killer story that has nothing new to offer?

Good story line, believable hero. as with most novels of this type, the hero goes a little overboard at times. fortunately, the writing is good enough to overcome it, and make you not only like the book, but want to read the rest of the series.

I've only read about a quarter of this book, but it is an aggravating endeavor. This book is riddled with improper punctuation, missing words, misspelled words. This author would benefit from the services of a proofreader and an editor.

A good read, fast paced, lots of twists and turns. Figured out who the bad guy was pretty early on but but there is enough else going on to hold your interest to the finish.
