Sean Patrick Reardon
I'm a crime / thriller fiction writer, who pays the bills working for a large investment company. When not doing the above, I like to play lacrosse and spend time with family and friends. I'm usually reading at least one novel on any given day. I love Rock-n-Roll and good crime / heist movies.
My goal when writing MINDJACKER was to create a story that would appeal to a broad range of readers, especially those who really enjoy the style and storylines of "Rock-n-Rolla", "Snatch", "Pulp Fiction", and "Smokin' Aces" to name a few.
I'm currently working on my next crime novel, titled "Sissy Murphy"

Smashwords book reviews by Sean Patrick Reardon
- Grow House
on July 30, 2010
This is what I love about Smashwords, you can read stories by established writers, and in this case it was free. I decided to read GROW HOUSE based on title alone, and was shocked to find out that John McFetridge was the author. A huge bonus! GROW HOUSE is a well written short story with a nice brisk pace and smooth dialoge. It packed alot of punch for 4,700 word story. Overall, an entertaining read that flows well and reads fast.

Fryupdale is unlike anything I have read before and I mean that in positive way. It reminded me of an experimental, concept collection of stories all centering around the fiction town of Fryupdale, it's inhabitants, and goings on. The stories and vignette's are all well writeen and edited. I would certainly read more of Mark's writing as it is very apparent that he has talent and a great eye for subtle details.

I am a huge fan of heist style stories and this one certainly delivered the goods, and then some. The writing style is smooth as silk. This was a very entertaining read and the pages seemed to fly by. A terrific plot, tremendous characters, lots of action, and many laugh out loud moments. The style is surely reminiscent of Elmore Leonard, but the author adds a Stephen King like touch to it, that makes it his own. This story begs for a movie adaption ala, Oceans 11, Get Shorty etc...Already started reading The Big Wink by the author and am loving it.
- The Big Wink

As soon as I finished the author's latest novel, LOST VEGAS, it was so good, I jumped right into THE BIG WINK and was not disappointed. A great, fast moving caper tale for sure, with a terrific cast, lots of plot twists, and many riotous laughs. The way the story is told and the characters are top notch. Uncle GrayBeard and Detective Holland's boss were just a few of the supporting characters who really added to the enjoyment of the read. I'm finding that a Steve Brewer story not only provides great entertainment, but can actually make a bad day, a good one. As mentioned by another reviewer, this story begs for a screen adaptation, ala, "The Big Lebowski".

This was the last of the 3 Steve Brewer books I recently purchased. The others being "Lost Vegas" and "The Big Wink". Both were tremendous and "Calabama" did not disappoint. The only difference is that this one was told from the 1st person POV. Brewer's trademark humor is again on display, albeit, a more satirical, wise-cracking style. The story and the way it is told had me thinking of Donald Westlake, for sure, especially Westlake's "The Ax", which should be considered a very shining endorsement. Overall, it was a great read and I highly recommend it.

From the hilarious opening line, to the great twist at the end, this was a great read. Eddie joins a long list of Steve Brewer's characters that entertain like no other. The dialogue, situations, and story delivery are second to none. A real treat, that I highly recommend.
