I would put LT Ryan's "Jack Noble" books up there with the best of the contemporary mystery writers (Patterson, Grisham, et al). I had gotten into something of a rut reading many of my favorites (Clive Cussler, Tony Hillerman, and a couple others) and was looking for something different - or perhaps SOMEONE different. Imagine my surprise when I found the FREE "Noble Beginnings" at the Kindle store! Great; a chance to try someone new with no risk. How could you beat that? Well, it was a great opportunity to find, and add, another great author to my Kindle library.
Richly developed characters; sometimes CRAZY plot twists; and non-stop action. I simply couldn't put these books down. I went right from book one (Noble Beginnings) to book 2 (Deadly Distance) without any hesitation. And I have already moved on to "Thin Line" (#3 in the series).
Great stuff, people. Read LT Ryan; you won't regret it.
