Editorial Reviews


“We all know Lyle’s erudition and expertise - but who knew he was this funny?”
Lee Child, New York Times best-selling author

 “Corruption, vendettas, cartel killers, oh my!  Deep Six puts the fun back into late-night reading with this fast-paced romp through murder and mayhem. Prepare to flip the pages."
Lisa Gardner, New York Times best-selling author

“Retired professional baseball player Jake Longly, the narrator of this entertaining if slight series launch set on Florida’s Gulf Coast from Lyle (Stress Factor and two other Dub Walker novels), has agreed to do a little surveillance work for his PI father, Ray. Jake’s first assignment is to take pictures of a cheating wife, but things get complicated when she’s murdered and her lover turns out to be the new husband of Jake’s ex-wife. When Jake, Ray, and Jake’s beautiful new girlfriend, screenwriter Nicole Jamison, investigate, they realize that there’s a connection to a local crime boss with some shady real estate plans. At times Lyle takes his Gulf Coast twist on Hiaasen and Dorsey too far (a pair of brothers named Darrell and Darnell is a joke that soon wears thin) and the ease with which Nicole falls into bed with Jake is a stretch, but the mix of quirky characters and some brutal acts of violence should offer plenty of grist for fans of the hard-boiled genre.”
Publishers Weekly

"Lyle debuts a new series starring Jake Longly, former baseball player, now reluctant PI working for his father. Assigned to watch a wealthy woman believed to be having an affair, he quickly learns that her paramour is Jake’s own ex-wife’s new husband. Then the woman is murdered, and Jake, who has a mouth that speaks before his brain has time to think, finds himself in deep trouble. Readers who enjoy smart-mouthed PIs like Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole will want to watch this series develop."

“Fans of D.P. Lyle’s darker, more noirish work may suddenly feel like they’re on the butt end of a badly written punchline, but Lyle’s new book is no laughing matter. Actually, that’s a lie. It’s funny as hell."
The Big Thrill

“D.P. Lyle returns in superb form in Deep Six. Smart, wickedly funny, expertly constructed and deftly executed, Lyle is at the top of his game as he takes his readers on a romp on the Gulf Coast that goes down as smoothly as a cold beer on a hot day at a bar next to the beach. Jake Longly is a character worth rooting for, and Lyle's fans will be cheering for an encore. Find a comfortable chair and plan to stay up late to enjoy the ride. Highly recommended.“
Sheldon Siegel, New York Times best-selling author

“Readers will love Jake Longly―ex-big league ballplayer, beach bar owner, and reluctant PI, and the sharply defined ensemble of characters in Deep Six is just as outstanding. Page turning action and knock out dialogue from a master craftsman and story teller. I devoured this one!”

Robert Dugoni, New York Times best-selling author

“In Deep Six, gifted storyteller D.P. Lyle has crafted yet another winner.  A comedic thriller that weaves through the Gulf Coast with wild abandon.  This book has it all, memorable characters, a stunning plot, and as always, Lyle's impeccable sense of place. Bravo!”
Philip Donlay, best-selling author of the Donovan Nash series

"Wistfully dogged, romance-challenged, wisecracking hero Jake Longly calls to mind James Crumley’s C.W. Sughrue, and I can’t think of higher praise. The story is paced like a lightning strike aimed directly at the human heart."
David Corbett, award-winning author

“In Deep Six author D. P. Lyle has once again written a consistently compelling novel that will riveting his reader's total attention from beginning to end. This is the stuff from which block-buster movies are made!”
Midwest Book Review

“You’ll be itching to read it”
Reading Frenzy

“With Deep Six, D. P. Lyle has written a mystery reminiscent of the Spenser series written by the late, great Robert B. Parker and continued today by the impressive Ace Atkins. Mix pulp fiction with a great mystery and a dash of humor, stir lightly and you’ll have a perfect combination that is Deep Six.”
Suspense Magazine

Deep Six is an incredible thriller that has a 'smashing' start and will hold you captivated to the end. Deep Six is one compelling adventure and crime thriller you do not want to miss!”
Fresh Fiction
