First, the writer writes very fluidly. The narrative goes down like a cool lemonade on a hot summer day. At least 4 stars for that skill.
I liked his characters, liked the trappings of his world (NYC) and immersion in the life of a detective.
I would surely read any new books he produces (hopefully).
Had to knock down the rating a bit only because it is a tad short, hence lacks a bit of depth and his metier (detective story) is not really my cup of tea. Still praiseworthy. The man can write, and should continue to write as he "has skills" as they say.
For aspiring writers, this is a great novel to emulate not only for the excellent caliber of Mr. Kearney's writing but for singling out and giving thanks to those who truly deserve it--the readers. Personally, I can't wait to read this author's next work, and I won't let it sit behind some famous author's latest work that they've phoned-in and stagnate on my already dangerously overloaded shelf.
A book that makes you think like "Mack 1" doesn't come along all that often. So do yourself a favor, read this highly entertaining, and enlightening, book. I'm sure by the end of it, you'll be thinking that this would make a great Made-for TV movie that you'd love to actually see, if the only ones still being make for cable weren't all about Christmas. You might also be thinking why aren't some of this author's great ideas for television programming, like "Million Dollar News Quiz" and "What Do You Do?," not on my television screen instead of the mostly rubbish and drivel that fills most the channels on television these days. Well, even if I can't watch TV programming of that quality, at least I can read about it and dream thanks to this book's author.
