Book Description

Praise for the books of William Casey Moreton:

"...Moreton keeps readers hooked." -- Kirkus Reviews

"....Moreton is a superb and inspired storyteller and with so many mediocre books being published, this is a relatively rare feat." -- Deadly Pleasures

For fans of Harlan Coben, Mary Higgins Clark, Lisa Gardner, and Lisa Scottoline, here is white-knuckle suspense at its finest:

How well do you really know the person in bed beside you?

Brynn Nelson is living the American dream. She has a nice home in the suburbs, a husband working on Wall Street, and two fabulous kids. But when the FBI rings the doorbell at midnight, storming her home and arresting her husband Tom for murder, her peaceful world is shattered.

When Tom is killed under mysterious circumstances within hours of his arrest,
Brynn finds herself following a trail of cryptic clues planted by Tom himself. Soon it’s clear that her husband was leading a secret life, and now those same secrets threaten to kill her next.

WILLIAM CASEY MORETON grew up in the South and graduated college in 1993 with a degree in Religious Studies. He is the author of seven novels, including NEVER BACK DOWN, THE SEARCH, and 72 HOURS. Moreton is a member of International Thriller Writers and lives in the Midwest where he is at work on his next book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs editing. August 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book needs two ratings, one for content and one for grammar. I give the content a 4. The plot and characters are believable, and the action moves along at a good pace. Some of the events are predictable, but there are also twists and turns that the reader does not see coming--especially at the end. As for the grammar, I give it a 1, or lower if I could. William Casey Moreton is in serious need of a proofreader or editor. There are numerous glaring mistakes which detract from the content. Eventually I found myself reading to find mistakes rather than enjoying the story. I have not read any other of Moreton's books, but all of them seem to receive the same comments about his lack of attention to grammar rules and spelling. You would think that after the first book was criticized for this, he would have tried to do something about it. Unfortunately the poor writing pulls the overall rating down to a 2.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typos galore!! July 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I found the book to be entertaining, it difficult for me to read because of all the typos, misspelled words, misused words, improper punctuation, and overall poor editing. Don't writers proofread anymore?

1.0 out of 5 stars Meh... September 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In "The Stranger Beside You" Brynn Nelson is your typical wife in the suburbs, who is woken up by the FBI in the middle of the night, her husband arrested for murder. The next day she finds out that her husband has been killed trying to escape from jail. Brynn discovers her husband has been living a secret life, and sets off in search of the truth.

I gave this book a shot, despite bad reviews, because most reviewers seemed to like the story, and the major criticisms seemed entirely focused on the editing (or lack thereof) of the novel.

Unfortunately, the story is both too predictable and a bit too unbelievable, and therefore, for me at least, it did not rise above the admittedly awful grammar, spelling, and other errors on nearly every page.

I wanted to like the book, but I just can't recommend it. Even at the low price of $2.99, there are so many books out there with better plots and better writing. I wouldn't waste my time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the worst editing ever September 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Beside the fact that the central thesis is impossible, this book has the worst editing I have ever seen -- maybe none. Fur trees sorround the road. Really, what kind? Mink? Because it was entertaining I will give Moreton one more chance then that is it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could not finish it September 26, 2011
By buck
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maybe I am too picky or too old fashioned but after reading through a quarter of this book and finding numerous errors in word use I had to put it down. Things like dose vs doze, watched vs watch etc.. They all pass spell check but definitely don't fit. The story could have been good but if the author, editor, proofreader, publisher do not want to take the time to critically read the text themselves why should I?

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Plot - Poor Grammar October 7, 2011
By Mlo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book started out promising but soon proved to be filled with too many errors. I was so completely distracted by them that I couldn't enjoy the book. The author even referred to the wrong character in one part of the book. I spent more time trying to go back and find this part of the book to see if I made a mistake than actually reading the entire book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful but so many errors!! September 2, 2011
By JoJo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK, this was a really great, suspenseful read but someone should have done a better job of proof reading this book. I think this book had the most errors out of any e-books I have read. Again, don't get me wrong - I totally enjoyed it and read it 3 days (and I work) but come on be more careful in the future! If those type of things don't bother you then you will love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars I hate typos January 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Much as I enjoyed the book the typos drove me crazy. Who edits books these days? Seems to me that my 8 year old grand daughter could have done a better job. I am a natural speed reader and it is very annoying to have my eye stop on a typo. I wonder if the hard copy has the same typos?

The suspense was good but the writing was a little distracting. It wasn't written that well. It ended a little too abruptly.
