This book was a lot of fun to read. I can't remember reading anything recently where I felt attached to the main character so much and wanted things to turn out for him like I did with this book.
There were also some good surprises and twists that keep me turning the page.
Jack Bolt grows up dirt poor in the mountains but manages to leave and somehow become educated as well.
A single random moment changes his life forever and he spends a good part of the book trying to undo that incident - or at least make the outcome of it different.
I don't want to spoil any part of the plot but there are some nice surprises and unexpected turns and once I began reading this mystery I could not put it down until I finished it.

An interesting story with unexpected turn of events. I especially enjoyed the unusual character descriptions, i.e. Sal "had a neck like a tree trunk and a head of blue-black Grecian curls trimmed short. His face sagged in the melancholy lines of a bulldog"; and Rev. Hobart Watts appeared like a black pillar with a carved mask face. "The pillar's eyes stared. The irises of bluish white, like a Siberian husky, making the black pupils seem uncommonly penetrating." Descriptions like these made the characters come alive. I hope we will see more to come from this author.

I approached the reading of this book with some apprehension. The author is a valued friend of many years, and reading and evaluating a friend's first work of fiction -- and doing an honest job of it -- can be fraught with pitfalls for the friendship. I could attest to the high quality of his letters, essays, and other writing, but I also knew that writing a good letter or essay doesn't necessarily translate into the ability to come up with a good yarn.

My apprehension, however, was misplaced. The First Impression is a taut, clever adventure. The protagonist, Jack Bolt, is convicted of a murder he didn't commit. The adventure ensues as Jack goes through a parade of plot twists, narrow escapes, and life-changing experiences in his quest to clear himself of the charge of murder. The plotting is handled well, Jack's character is developed nicely, and the dialogue is crisp and well-suited to the action. The writing style is concise, but with plenty of well-turned descriptive passages.

Buy the book. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

Extremely well written. The best sign of a good novel is when one is sad upon finishing the book. Sad that the enjoyment of the story is over. This story leaves you longing for another book to read. I am not a "novel" reader but this book made me cut the television off because I was so interested to find out the next twist or turn in the story. I hope the author writes another book as enthralling as this one.

This first-time novelist creates believable characters rather than than the caractures that fill the pages of most books. It was a real joy to read about a hero who wins because of character and hard work, rather than tricks that cause the reader to say, "Oh well, that could have happened." I can't wait for his second book.
