Review by: Elizabeth Miller on Dec. 10, 2012 :
Fast paced action thriller. Follow Detective Deak Colte as he searches for his wife's killer. Why is he taunting the detective and what does he have to confess? Excellent way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

Review by: Heather Wilkinson on May 20, 2012 :
Great book and the ending was so surprising. I figured it would be who it was, however I expected it to turn out differently.

I worked briefly in law enforcement so I like reading books like this. I would recommend this book to my friends.

The book was well written and I didn't want to put my Kindle down. You know it is a good book when I read it all in the same day!

I got this from the Members Giveaway. I enjoyed reading this detective novel. He starts right in with the plot and keeps you guessing until the end. In fact, the ending was a surprise. I did not see that coming. I read the authors other novel "The Paperboy Club" and enjoyed that as well. This is an author that I would look for.

I got this book as part of the author giveaway.

The City is a short fiction with a few red herrings but it is a little predictable. However, the ending is a fairly tightly paced and did keep me guessing for a while. Good work overall.

Review by: Mike Davis on Oct. 09, 2011 :
A mystery, crime novel set in a fictitious city, The City is a short, fairly routine work with a few red herrings that ends somewhat predictably. The writing style is in short sentences and suggests that English might not be the native language of the author. Overall, this style suits action scenes, but is a bit too obvious at the beginning of this mystery when things are being set up. This becomes less apparent as the mystery moves along and the ending is a page-turner.
