Characters pop to life in this intriguing book. I could practically hear them speaking, shreiking or begging for mercy, from the movie screen (Yes, it would make a great movie.) as I read the book. Could not put it down. Besides an intriguing story, O'Rourke has captured the modern day dilemma of an alleged legislative answer creating more problems than solutions. Just when you think you've figured things out, the story takes another turn, delighting the reader yet again. A long read, worth the investment of intellectual concentration.

Wonderfully written with a great story. Description of places take you right there. Characters come to life, story line is excellent. Old cars and the tannery business were educational and interesting.......would make a wonderful movie. Has it all....suspense, love, bad guys, good guys.....highly recommend this book.. Looking forward to more books from Denis O'Rouke.

After reading this book I was first struck by the thought that this a pretty damn good novel for a first time novelist. I absolutely adored the character Riley Scofield. I found myself cheering Riley on, upset by her setbacks, and cursing those that threatened her and her loved ones. The novel covers just about every emotion that touches the heart of humanity. The author delivers the depiction of the best of intentions which wind up resulting in deadly consequences. I enjoyed learning more about the tanning business, environmental and labor law, mergers and acquisitions and even the voter initiative process ... all this without getting bored! I can't wait to read about Riley Scofield's next adventures and what a movie this would make!!

Good story, good plot and characters. I especially liked it that the bad guys got their com-uppence. Mr. O'Rourke made the characters believable. Good job, Carl Van Peeren

I opened PROPOSITION at 1030pm to read a few chapters. When I looked up it was 430am and I had finished."
I am a fan of Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Vince Flynn, and many others.
I am now a fan of O'Rourke.
I enjoyed PROPOSITION-as much as any book I've read.Proposition

This novel has heroes, villains, and an entertaining storyline that holds your attention through page after page. The author does a great job of describing locations and persons to give the reader a visual image of some scenic areas and memorable characters that enhances the reading experience. Definitely a fun read!
