Reno Hart is a former MP turned PI who has an incredible talent for finding trouble wherever she goes. With sharp prose that would make Raymond Chandler proud, author Stephen Campbell weaves four short tales about a year in Reno's life. Hearkening back to old school 'Locked Room' mysteries with a modern twist, Campbell covers everything from blackmail to murder to preventing an assassination.
Campbell's dialogue sings and zings, the mysteries will make the reader say, "Why didn't *I* think of that?" and all in all proved a terrific days entertainment.
These stories form a prologue of sort for a soon to be released full-length Reno Hart novel, and I cannot wait for that one! If you like strong women with a sense of humor over some of life's silliness, Reno Hart is the girl for you!
This story, The Flying Snapper, is our intro to Reno, a bright, smart woman, but one who’s trying to get her bearings in a new career after recently losing her husband.
All four stories are terse and fast-paced. Reno is on a roll. The right gal for the right crime. Like her namesake city she’s quick and sharp, and if you commit a crime better hope she’s not on the case ’cause she’ll fry your you-know-what. Looking forward to hooking up with her again! Terrific, fun stories that’ll keep you hooked!
Sometimes a book or phrase is too on the nose, to obvious or cliched. Not so with Seasons of Reno Hart which introduces a fun filled yet complex character and her sometimes helpful sidekick.
New author, Campbell, weaves subtly with brash obviousness in a manner typically expected of a much more seasoned writer. For example, while neither of the protagonists play the part (sorry, I took out the next phrase because upon re-reading I realized it spoiled a fun twist), they do so as a casual matter of fact. It is this type of relaxed richness that quietly and fully adds texture to what is essentially a beach read type thriller, or perhaps better described as a modern day pulp, noir thriller. It is fully worthy of the roots in the early genre while adding the sophistication of what today's readers enjoy.
Now that I have read the four shorts and have a through introduction to this new series, I am eagerly awaiting the first full length novel. Due to very clean writing and style I fully expect the novel to live up to the high standard set by this introductory set of short stories.
We look forward to seeing more from Ms Reno Hart and Mr Stephen R. Campbell in the future. (Double Ds)
This book was just a taste of the good things to come. I am eagerly awaiting the next, full-length Reno Hart.
Four fast-paced, highly enjoyable stories featuring Reno in each of the seasons. A clever idea that really works in this book, allowing the reader to move along with Reno during a year of her life.
Tight,compelling plotting, vivid characters,a sharp, wonderful protagonist and some laugh out loud moments. Stephen Campbell is a terrific, skilled writer. I loved this book and had trouble putting it down. Can't wait for the next one!
