by

Gene J. Parola




Reviews:



"An absorbing tale of hidden motivations that keeps the reader guessing until the end, The Devil To Pay is enthusiastically recommended for those mystery buffs who appreciate a well crafted tale of intrigue and suspense." Midwest Book Review


"Billed as a 'sailing adventure mystery,' this novel delivers on all counts. The diehard sailor will love the nautical language and technical details supplied throughout the text. Lovers of action-adventure mysteries will find The Devil to Pay a satisfying read. Characters are well-developed and readers care about the good guys winning over the bad guys. I was immediately captivated by the rich language used in setting descriptions in the book.... [and] dialogue is natural and adds an extra dimension to the story. The pacing is quick, making this book a page turner. Mr. Parola uses an interesting device of placing narrative, quotes, and subtitles at the beginning of each chapter, offering the reader a glimpse ahead and providing a deeper understanding of the story. Mr. Parola is extremely skilled with dialog…." Writers Digest
