The story begins in a way that grabs the reader's attention on the first page as the narrator steps into his living room and keeps the reader guessing through to the end. I enjoyed discovering the main character's flaws and positive characteristics. Secondary characters were well-developed, yet some narrative threads were left unexplored. I was kept guessing about the narrator's reliability - a guessing game I enjoy as I read - and the author crafts this character in a complex way that makes the reader like and dislike the character and his decisions. Some parts I thought to be gratuitous, but this novel provides a solid read and an interesting story.

At first, this novel seems to be about finding a dead body but, you learn quickly it is much more. Helped by a friend, pursued by a police detective, 'young Will' begins a path of discovery. He wonders how this dead man came to a final rest in his apartment and just wants to escape responsibility for what seems to be a crime. As Will tries to avoid involvement, he unwillingly (perhaps) journeys on a path of discovery about this unknown man and then about himself. The reader wants him to find answers to each question and becomes a participant in his pursuit. John Richmond has created a character whom you care about and support in this effort. A very good read.

What a fun, stimulating and intriguing read! In addition to the mystery component, twists and turns..., I loved the sea and San Francisco references. This is a must read for mystery buffs, sailing aficionados and those looking for some insider references to the Bay Area! Really hope to see more from this author in the future!!!

I happened across this book while looking for something different, feeling I was in a bit of an "author rut" where I start to feel I know where the author is going because I know his /her styles too well. I did not know John Richmond, but thought it sounded like an interesting storyline. I loved the feel of the book from the first chapter. The author does a really good job here; you feel close enough to the principal character that you like him, develop an empathy for him...but at the same time he annoys you, "why is he behaving this way?"! Over the course of the book this becomes clearer - there is more to the character than you are allowed to see.It makes him very real, not the paper thin characterizations that are so common. He lives a life many would be envious of...on the surface...but it is a life built on a difficult upbringing,one marked by falsehoods, half-truths, and misunderstandings. A complex character that even at the end the reader feels uncertain where he will go, will he find a purpose to his life. Not just a mystery, a very nice surprise. I highly recommend it!

Dead and Alive started like a typical murder mystery when Will comes home to find a man dead on his couch. The Inspector who comes to investigate asks more questions than Will has the answers for. So Will and his childhood friend look for answers on their own. While Will is trying to figure out what is going on, he realizes there is much to discover about his own self.

This book was so much more than a murder mystery and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I look forward to reading more from this author!

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Could not believe that this is John Richmond's first and only Novel. I really enjoyed his writting and attempted to find additional books of his to read. Very disappointed to find that there are no other books. I enjoyed Dead and Alive alot.
