Compelling. Stand-alone that is easy to follow and difficult to put down. No drag-you-down drama. Violence, no graphic brutality.
Intriguing storyline with several twists. Descriptive writing that draws you into the various scenes.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking, informative, snarky and realistic dialogue.
'Having a favor in your bank roll, from a guy like Kelly, even if you had to remind him it was there, was pure gold. A Kelly favor was worth a dozen or more 'Average Joe' favors.'
"The path may be the right one, but the destination not be what you wanted."
There was a philosopher named Jeremy Bentham who once said, 'It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong'. Now my computer guys will tell you that Spock said it best when he said, ' The needs of the many must outweigh the needs of the few or the one'.
Chicken and waffles? Who came up with that, Morgan thought, as he browsed the hotel restaurant menu? That sounded to him like the kind of thing a bachelor would come up with. He could just see some guy wearing boxers and tube socks, standing in the kitchen, gazing into his nearly empty fridge, looking at some left over KFC and a box of frozen waffles, and saying to himself, "What the hell."
It reminded him of a t-shirt he saw once. It said "Sh@@ Happens -That's why they call it that!"
I may re-read this story and look forward to other works by this author.
A series of murders are taking place in various parts of the United States. They do not seem to be related in any way. However, rookie Agent Tess Mallory was a Technical Analyst in the Boston FBI office assigned the task of looking at old files and seeing to see if she could find some new lead to follow. She had to learn to get along with the other agents and to make it seem like they found the new lead in their own files rather than her pointing it out to them. While doing this task, she also began to investigate The Reynolds file to see what would happen if she applied her ideas to it. She writes up a report showing some patterning which seems to make cases which do not seem to be related go together. Because of this report, she is drawn into a special section of the FBI to go as far as she could with her investigation of the Reynolds file. US Senator Jim Reynolds and his wife are brutally murdered with knives and their teenage son, Jeremy, is found with their blood on his body and the knives by his side. Their cuts are identical to those which would have shown up on the bodies of the Gorgon and the Minotaur in Chapter two. How did the case of John Maynor fit with the Reynolds file? Was Jeremy Reynolds acting out a scene from a video game? What caused him to do that? When the same thing seems to be happening in other murders, Tess sets out to find out what is happening. Will she be murdered before she can make the connections? What is going on? Who is in charge? The book will get more complex before it is over.
I ended up loving the book and hating to put it down when I had to. I am looking forward to reading Snow Angel and any others in the series. I loved the character of Morgan Snow. He is extremely complex, being good and evil at the same time. I wish I could give the book 10 stars.
In Snowfall, the bad guys are really bad, and the good guys aren't all that perfect either, but the good people need help from someone familiar with the terrain.
It being a fast read does not mean that it's an easy read. Some of the situations are hard to stomach. Morgan and his prey both find themselves in truly anxious predicaments, ones you don't want to ponder for any longer than is needed to understand why they're happening. We, and the bad guys' victims, are the beneficiaries of the stresses.
In Snowfall, one of those victims is someone we fellas would all love to rescue. We get to spend a good long time with Tess and her loosely self-regulated roommate. I, well I guess Morgan, made every, and I really mean every, effort to protect them.
Suffice it to say that I really enjoyed this book. Don't expect Asimov, Irving or Vonnegut. It's more about the limbic system than the solar system or the human condition. It's not at all a short book and I was sad when I couldn't continue after the last page. Hopefully there will be more pages to come.
