(slight spoiler alert) The Author weaves a Great story of a Gum shoe who finds him self swept a way by a mysterious lady with hidden intentions. His a need to satisfy his curiosity twists over the story line and becomes a quest for vengeance and justice. The story escalates into a international crime drama. There is lots of intrigue to hold your attention, and the characters are filled out and well rounded so that they feel familiar. Great Weekend read. I am anticipating book two!
I throughly enjoyed this story, the characters, the twists and turns of plans, and a terrific ending. A nice return to the old detective stories. Very much the "Noir" feel when reading. Ilook forward to the next story in this series. I met Robert in the Phoenix airport and he turned me to his book. I have introduced many others to the story. Good luck and best wishes.
I had the pleasure of meeting the author in November while visiting a friend in PA. He told me about his book and I was intrigued. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and I'm looking forward to the 2nd book scheduled to be published in 2018.
I am loving this book! I'm on chapter six & having a hard time putting it down! Keeps your constant interest...trying to figure out "who dun it"! Characters are well described...you can put a face on all of them. Rather easy read... I highly recommend!
I was intrigued just by the cover so I figured I'd give this book a try. I'm so glad I did. You won't want to put it down!! I like the old gangster, murder/mystery vibe. And theres 's 2 more after this, Magenta Dairy and War of Ghosts! You won't want to put those down once you started. So glad theres going to be a movie!
This is my father's first book so I suppose it's a biased review, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Kind of an LA confidential style, 1930s murder mystery. Hooks you in right from the start and keeps you interested all the way through. Fun read! Check it out!
