What is the device? Who has it? What will it do? "Enemies" answers those questions and more.
The story is easy to read and doesn't bog the reader down with superfluous details about what the characters ate for breakfast or why they chose to boxers instead of briefs. "Enemies" is very straightforward with the two agents working methodically to catch a thief. Navarro's body language expertise becomes evident when he clues the reader in to the different "cues" displayed by each character. When I read the story, I felt as though I was in the interview room. A clever plot twist reveals just exactly who the "Enemies" are.
I encourage everyone who is interested in body language analysis, law enforcement, counter intelligence, and interviewing techniques to give "Enemies" a read. I have it on my Kindle... so should you.

This short story is just as easy to read as his other work, and has all the interesting elements that his personal anecdotes have in his other major work, but it also adds in a compelling work of fiction. The tension in this story is very well managed, mixing in just the right blend of extra detail to put you in the moment but without distracting you from the story's purpose. The story is engaging right from the first few pages, and continues right through the unexpected ending. This story REALLY left me wanting even more!
One of the most interesting things for me comes from my interest in studying human behavior and deception detection pretty intensively in real life. There is one section where the two agents go to the facility after hours, and the main character is walking through and looking over the work spaces of the employees who had access to the missing device. The details presented, and the way in which they're presented, paint a very lifelike picture of not just what the agent was seeing, but also of the people behind what he was seeing. I don't read a lot of fiction, but I do watch a lot of fiction in TV and movies, some of which is based on books, and as someone who has studied behavioral analysis, it's very rare to see such a thorough and accurate portrayal of evidence and evidentiary analysis.Read more ›

I don't remember what I paid for this so-called book, but whatever it was, it was too much. It doesn't even make a good short story, and the writer desperately needs a copy editor.Published 20 months ago by Ellen Drake
Joe Navarro's debut novel is spot on. The master of interviewing skills and non-verbal behavior weaves a taut reality based thriller. Read morePublished on March 25, 2012 by Mike Roche
