on Nov. 18, 2012 :
Dead Man Running is Stoney M. Setzer's first novel, which I had the privilege to 'beta read' this summer. I found a lot about it that I liked. It's a mystery/thriller and, while adult-themed, is a clean read which is a plus for those who don't want to always be on their guard against vulgar language. At times the plotting and characters get a bit predictable, but the premise had me intrigued (read the blurb) and kept me guessing early in the story. There are some twists and turns, but by and large this is a straight up suspense which wraps up nicely. A pretty fair debut novel.
Setzer's typical output has been short stories, "spiritual/cozy thrillers" (a few of which I've published at ResAliens) that have an old time pulpy feel to them. This novel is more in the vein of a "traditional" mystery/suspense and, as Setzer puts it, "perhaps closer to Hitchcock than Twilight Zone." If you enjoy straightforward storytelling that balances a few quirky characters and fast plotting, give Dead Man Running a try.
