Book Description

An unpublished manuscript threatens to ignite a scandal that could obliterate a small Catholic school on the Jersey Shore. Private investigator Riley King is tasked by an alluring female literary agent to find the author, who vanished shortly after submitting the work. Complicating matters is the menacing interference of the school's chief benefactor, a local businessman with suspected mob ties.

King, with the help of radio talk show host Rick Stone, uncovers a web of deception with bigger consequences, a budding conspiracy that could bring down the entire region. The suspense never stops, with twists lurking around every corner.

4.0 out of 5 stars First time out... and a solid at bat. August 17, 2014
By Kermit
Format:Kindle Edition
I've worked professionally in the mystery genre; reviewer and collaborator and commentator - so I approached this with a degree of skepticism. Neer has previously written an important book on rock radio and is an adept and insightful sports commentator. But this genre is a tar pit for novices; the formulas are apparent to any regular reader, the tropes obvious and all the manifestations of Parker, McDonald, Chandler et. al. are well worn. You can generally tell whose presence you are in from the first paragraph - been there, done that, many, many times.
That said, this is a crackling good first effort. Clever, catchy, entertaining and a ripping good yarn, this guy has a future. It's the kind of work that takes you along for a good and rewarding ride and Neer just may be on to something; nifty dialogue, credible twists and turn, polished craftsmanship and engaging characters... I suggest you give this a try and settle back for a better than average genre-read. All said, Neer is closer than others the first time out. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightfully fun, fast read! August 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Something Of The Night was a really enjoyable "page turner"! Riley King and Rick Stone are a couple interesting, although deeply flawed protagonists, crafted nicely by Richard Neer. I read lots of mysteries and I'm usually pretty good at figuring out "who done it". I have to say that I never saw the ending coming! I'm looking forward to more books with King and Stone.

A most enjoyable murder who dun it with enough twists and turns to make you want to keep reading to the end. The characters are easy to relate to, the storyline understandable, and the ending ties up all the loose ends. It is an easy read and if you like murder mysteries this book will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great weekend read! September 9, 2014
By Sandy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mysteries are my favorite genre and this one kept me turning the pages, long after I should have gone to sleep. The characters are flawed enough to be interesting and the storyline pulls you in. The surpirse ending was a nice touch. I hope the author is busy writing the next Riley King book! I find myself wondering who should play Riley in a television series or movie...

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected pleasure... August 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I always thought Richard Neer to be more erudite than the average sports talkie, but never realized he had this kind of talent to roll out an engrossing murder mystery.

Well done. I can definitely see this being greenlighted for the big screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery solved! A fun read September 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What makes a page turner? A man, a dog, a best friend, a pinch of romance and a sprinkling of dead bodies. Richard Neer has created an anti-hero (Riley King) that we can root for because he isn't perfect. He is someone you want to travel with and cheer for as he makes his way through life in and out of his head.
