Editorial Reviews

Review

"Toulouse 4 Death" by Gregory Randall is the third in the series of mysteries featuring resilient Sharon O'Mara, insurance investigator and ex-military police officer. As usual she gets help along the way from friend and detective Kevin Bryan. In this exciting, historically based story, the action centres on valuable artwork by the Nazis from their Jewish owners shortly before the Second World War. Three American soldiers help themselves to a few pictures, including a stunning piece by Toulouse-Lautrec, and stash them away in a secret hiding place. One of them, Alain Dumont, believing both his comrades to be dead, returns to France after the war and collects the treasures. Now, approaching death, he wants to return the paintings to their rightful owners and asks Sharon to accomplish this for him. However, there are some powerful people who don't want that to happen.

This is a fast-paced, contemporary thriller with an authentic, well-researched plot that is full of twists and turns, yet remains plausible. There is an interesting cast of characters, all rounded and unique. Sharon is a driving force throughout the book and a catalyst for the exhilarating action. The author is a great storyteller and has a gift with language. For example, when Dumont refers to his memory loss, he says his thoughts "run away like small children and hide". Beautiful.

From the Author

Gregory C. Randall, Midwesterner by birth, Californian by choice, has lived in the same town as Sharon O'Mara for over twenty years. Old enough to be her father, he is enjoying the chance to share her life with our readers and fans. Greg also enjoys many of the same pursuits and activities Sharon does, but that only make sense, they have a lot in common other than the red hair and dress thing. Greg continues to work on the continuing chronicles of Sharon O'Mara and she is excited to be part of his family.

Format:Kindle Edition
TOULOUSE 4 DEATH by GREGORY C. RANDALL, is the third book in the Chronicles of Sharon O'Mara series. This is a standalone book. I have not yet had the pleasure of reading the first two books in this series, Land Swap 4 Death and Containers 4 Death, but I must tell you, I was so impressed with Toulouse 4 Death that as soon as I finished reading it, I purchased the first two books in this series. IT WAS THAT GOOD!

Mr. Randall gives us a highly suspenseful, thrilling read that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the book. There is never a dull moment in this novel. You will find yourself on Paris streets being chased by some seriously bad people, and throughout the book, you will be transported back to the early 1940's in war torn Europe following three service men and their not so pure actions. This book also brings back the Nazis, the most evil of all foes, in such a unique and plausible way that the reader may never have been able to dream up such a nightmare until Mr. Randall instills that possibility into our minds.

Another aspect I really enjoyed about this book was the characters. I really liked them all, but I'm going to focus on the main character for now. Mr. Randall has given the reader a strong, focused female lead with Sharon O'Mara. This woman is a woman that we'd all like to know. She's not the stereotypical 20-something woman that many write about. She is a seasoned retired military cop that knows how to handle herself in such a way that would do any man proud. I thoroughly enjoyed her dialog and interactions with the other characters.

TOULOUSE 4 DEATH by GREGORY C. RANDALL is a well written, suspense filled book that I highly recommend.

More About the Author

Gregory C. Randall

Gregory C. Randall was born in summer of 1949 in Traverse City, Michigan and is a novelist and thriller writer with six books to his credit and three more in production. In the fall of 2010 his first book in the Sharon O'Mara Chronicles series Land Swap For Death was published followed by Containers For Death, Toulouse For Death and 12th Man For Death and are published by Windsor Hill Publishing. His literary novel, Elk River, has garnered praise and awards from the IBPA and the BIPA for his story of a youngster's coming of age and awareness in the summer in 1956 in Michigan.

Randall lives and works in Walnut Creek, California with his wife Bonnie. When not writing or designing cities his professional career, he devotes his time to the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek (one of the western United States best succulent and sustainable gardens).

About the Release of the Second Edition of America's Original GI Town, Park Forest, Illinois - 2010

In the early 1990's Randall began exploring the relationship of Park Forest and American community planning. He learned that the two are intricately woven into the psychic of Americans, post-World War II growth, and suburban expansion. During the early growth of his new planning and design firm he researched and wrote what has become the definitive story of the Village of Park Forest, Illinois; the seminal community in the suburban growth of baby-boom America. Originally published in 2000 by Johns Hopkins University Press, the new edition of his book, America's Original GI Town, Park Forest, Illinois, was released as a new edition in the fall of 2010 (Windsor Hill Publishing).

The initial research and work for this book was done between 1994 and 1998. Through the editorial efforts of George F. Thompson and the Center for American Places, the manuscript and artwork were published by The Johns Hopkins University Press in 2000. The release was reasonably successful for an academic book of this type and was released as a paperback edition in 2005. Significant changes have happened to the village in the twelve years since the completion of the original manuscript and the author believed that a new edition would help to tell the story of those years. The second epilogue is his attempt at placing before the interested reader those changes and concerns that the village has as it ages into the most challenging period in its history. Cities never grow up, they are never finished: they only age, react, change, and hopefully survive, so that someday a new author will recognize the value and importance of this small village on the Midwest prairie just an hour south of Chicago and continue its story.
