Review

Praise for the novels of Robert Gregory Browne

“Browne’s thrillers are lean, mean, and thoroughly entertaining. With a hint of the supernatural, Browne starts with a bang and never stops. Potent and breathtaking. An adrenaline rush that leaves you breathless.”—New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan

“A taut psychological thriller with hints of the supernatural and an ending that will leave readers speechless…The deeply satisfying story moves at a furious pace, packed with unexpected and original clues and plot twists.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Whisper in the Dark

“Adrenaline pumping.”—Midwest Book Review

“Provocative . . . breathtaking.”—Publishers Weekly on Kiss Her Goodbye

“All the elements of a terrific novel are here—a compelling, three-dimensional hero, a brilliant and evil villain, high stakes, a ticking clock, real emotion and Browne’s visceral writing style…a strong, striking debut thriller.”—Mark Terry

“Nonstop pacing, breathless prose, and page-turning urgency…heart-stopping fiction.”—Kathy Mackel

“From rich characters to heart-pounding suspense, Kiss Her Goodbye explores not only the deadly terrain of murder but the nuances of the soul. It’s a first-rate novel that will glue you to your chair until you finish the last satisfying word.”—Gayle Lynds

I would usually write a review for an individual book that I have recently read. But in this particular case, I have to make an exception with KILL HER AGAIN and DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN because of Browne's uncanny growth as a supernatural thriller author, specifically when it comes to the portrayal of female protagonists.

Browne's storytelling abilities are incredibly unique in terms of the characters, plotline, pacing, his descriptive power and especially his dialogue. But when he wrote KILL HER AGAIN and DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN (which I read consecutively), Browne excellently creates two powerful women who are placed in extraordinary circumstances. With Anna McBride(KILL HER AGAIN), we see a tough, no-nonsense FBI agent who fears for her own sanity because of nightmarish visions she experiences. Browne ups the ante with DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN's Beth Crawford, an LA prosecutor who suffers memory loss (caused by brain trauma), resulting in her trying to solve a mystery that involves her missing sister and a mass murder at a Mexican desert.

What is brilliant about these two novels is Browne interweaves a realistic strength within these two characters without them losing their empathy, compassion and their femininity. Too often have I read (and especially seen on TV) thrillers and crime dramas where the heroines try to behave like men---as though they received a shot of testosterone---in the effort to show strength and courage. Browne doesn't do this: he creates three dimensional women who are both strong AND vulnerable. And by maintaining this balance, readers are drawn into the stories even more.

Needless to say, Browne doesn't ignore the heroine's male counterparts/love interests. Both men compliment the heroines beautifully and the chemistry that is shown in both books are truly superb, showing once again that Robert Browne is an artist of the written word.

Robert Gregory Browne's, "The Innocent Ones", first and foremost, grabbed my attention right from the beginning as I have lived in Arizona, and San Diego County, thus, mixed cultures of the Mexican and American people are my normal zone, cross-country crimes an ever present reality, and I really loved the Mexican "street-slang", and words used throughout the book - understood and appreciated! When the two story lines merge into one, wow, totally awesome concept.With first-hand knowledge of the power of destructive cults, I commend Mr. Browne on his excellent research and insight into how they operate, and "what a tangled web they must weave" to carry on ALL the illegal activities they engage in! Also struggling with brain injury recovery myself, I was just "one" with the heroine in this story. My Kindle went everywhere with me for 24hrs. This book so accurately demonstrates the absolute cruelty and appalling control and depravity of cults controlled, absolutely, by a charismatic leader, and exposes people to what depths they will sink to in the name of their so-called "god". Get this book and read it today! This author did his research, and it is a horrifying portrayal of the active cults enslaving, torturing and killing many innocents in the world today. 5 glowing stars and a standing ovation! Thank you, RGB!

I really wasn't surprised to find this book as gripping as it was. I mean, I read Trial Junkies and thought it was superb. I could use so many adjectives to try and make you believe this is a beautifully written book, but I won't. It will sound contrived. I simply want to say that I have a limited time to read these days and the book better be spectacular to get me to stay with it. This is a book full of surprises (beyond belief), smooth, professional writing (which is a relief, since there is too much junk being sold these days), and a thrill ride equivalent to a literary roller coaster. Don't even take my word for it. Grab the book. You'll be happy you did. This isn't edge-of-your-seat entertainment. This is a book that will take you way over the edge.

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN was wonderful! I downloaded it to my Kindle a little after midnight and thought I'd just read a chapter or two and turn out the light, but I couldn't put it down. At 6:15 in the morning I finished. I haven't done that in a very long time. It was a fantastic read. Great twists, turns and fabulous characters. I'll definitely be checking out more of Mr. Browne's books but I won't be starting them at midnight! From now on I'll start reading in the daylight hours. I've learned my lesson!

"I don't remember the shooting, but I'll never forget the pain." Thus begins a short journal entry from an unidentified patient, one that goes on to talk about a harrowing experience that nearly left the individual dead. It is just a quick entry, yet one that speaks volumes of the senseless and shocking brutality that has already taken place in the novel, brutality that will continue to unfold as the lives of several characters converge while attempting to uncover the truth behind a houseful of dead nuns in Juarez, Mexico.

Nick Vargas, a former reporter who has been disgraced due to his fabrication of a news story that initially earned him quite a bit of praise, is trying to write a book, one that will tell the story of the houseful of dead nuns found in Juarez, Mexico. Needing sources and more information, Vargas heads down to the house with the father and son who found the bodies. Little does he know, he is being led into a trap, one that will soon find him bound and gagged in the back of his own car trunk heading toward an unknown destination. In addition to this, thanks to a simple slip of the tongue, he now knows that the nuns weren't the only victims of the shooting. An American girl was there as well, one who may have still been alive when the father and son found the bodies.

Beth Crawford, an assistant district attorney, thought she was going to get a nice peaceful cruise down the coast of Mexico, but instead has found herself once again playing mother to her rebellious little sister Jen, one who doesn't shy away from making a spectacle of herself every chance she gets.
