Quinn Gets His Kicks #2 – This book picks up about nine months after Checks ends. Another interesting story about Quinn with a few kinks in the fast paced storylines keeping the reader involved. Quinn and fellow characters are interesting and realistic, and easy to understand. I read this book before the update came out so I don’t know how the two versions differ, but I like what I read. The conversation style and continuing sequence is good, unless you read out of sequence causing you to miss a segment of Quinn’s life. There’s still that hint of romance. 4*
Quinn Checks In #1 – My first read by this author and I am impressed and excited to have found this author. This author should be one of the big names since this book reminds me of the good authors in this genre from the 60s and 70s. The storylines are interesting and fast paced, and the intriguing investigations keeps me wanting to read more of this series and this author’s work. Quinn is a good character; he keeps you on his side with his faults and good heart. His family is well cast and the other supporting characters round out the “family”, which is common in this genre. There is humor and maybe a touch of romance from afar, and the cursing/vulgar language is kept to a minimum. If you like Wambaugh and company, you’ll like Thomson. There’s minor editing needed, like lowercase being used for names/proper nouns/titles, but most won’t notice. I will now start on the second book of this series, which is bad for me since I have other books to read with close deadlines. 5*
Quinn Goes West #3 – This book picks up four days after Kicks ends. Man, the stuff that happens to Quinn. Still entertaining and interesting storylines, along with the same cast of characters and the new additions per story. Still realistic, although the author doesn’t know what size ten acres is and tries to pass that amount off as vast, but no one’s perfect. Good kinks to ruin a person’s day. Still good with plenty of humor, and the romance …. 5*
Quinn & The Vanishing Bride #4 – This book picks up about six months after West ends. Quinn keeps kickin’. Entertaining and intriguing storylines that keep the reader involved with Quinn and crew. As always, there’s more happening than meets the eye and there’s plenty of humor, not all smartalec. The characters never disappoint and their dialog and actions are realistic. Quinn’s the hero of the series and keeps getting the tarnation beat out of him, but he gets his licks in, too. Good mysteries that the reader can’t help but get involved in solving, but remember, there’s always something thrown in the spokes. If you like series like Breaking Bad or Remington Steele or Moonlighting, you’ll have fun with this series, too. Oh, there is a romance and Mrs. Quinn thinks she’ll have two weddings soon; she wants the rugrats. 5*
Liam Quinn, a man with a chequered past, all round good guy doing what he believes is right after some mistakes he made in an earlier time of his life. Intelligent, savvy and watched over by a fairy godfather. The mob is there too, after all this is Philly! And they are both the good and the bad guys.
Family life, sound values, romance (of a sort), all neatly packaged in a novel of simple yet profound truths. It's well paced, no loose ends, and the characters are well rounded. Touches of humour, but never distracting from the real storyline. You can't wait to turn the page to see what comes next. All in all, a worthy read, entertaining yet with a perfect amount of tension.
Thumbs up, and thank you for an excellent read.
A very good second book and will look forward to reading the third one.
I fell in love more with Liam, as he's so human. He's naturally had an inquiring mind (some will call it nosy), which made him saw things that others might missed. He's a real detective. I devour this book in one day straight, and my late night was so worth it.
Off I go to the next one...

I love quinn how he is funny, smart, brave and a little bit clueless all at the same time. He is a great character.
I love the bubbling of a romance between quinn and nora.
I also like hearing about the history and underworld of Philadelphia.
The only thing i hated was the abrupt ending with a cliffhanger... but i will read about in the next book. Normally cliffhangers get less of a rating. But i enjoyed the book and i didnt have the heart to downrate it when everything was on par.
