Wow! More please! I love noir-ish, hard-boiled detectives, and this fit the bill perfectly. It had a good, twisty story and I like how the main character was fleshed out.

Good plot and action. The book had good bad characters and a very interesting main character. The editing is good which made reading easy. It's not a superb story but a good solid read.

The author's style is crisp, the action engaging, and the plight of Jay Tucker gripping and intense. This is hard-boiled PI storytelling at its finest, told by a fleshed-out, flawed but likable character with good intentions. I truly enjoyed it!

I started out enjoying this book but I couldn't get through it after a while. I liked the author's style at first but there was too much telling and no showing. The telling kept me at distance and I couldn't get into the story. I love mysteries and crime fiction and I tried to give this more of a chance but I had to give it up. It shouldn't take a week or more to get through a story this short and for me it did and I still couldn't finish it. I think the concept was interesting though the plot is nothing new. I kept saying that I've seen this plot and these characters a million times but still I was curious as to how the author handled it. I started out impressed and tried to keep going but I had to let it go. A major issue for me was the lack of editing. I spotted many editing issues and basic grammar and sentence structure issues. If this book had been edited and if the author had "showed" instead of told everything, this would be very entertaining.

In Larson's Point, Jerry Kilgore has written a fast-paced and utterly engrossing detective novella that had me ripping through his twisting, turning plot until its satisfying conclusion (one that leads to more adventures of Kilgore's protagonist, Jay Tucker, I hope). Imagine the classic film Chinatown boiled down to it's noirish essence, a la Raymond Chandler or Mickey Spillane, and you have an idea of what's in store for you in Larson's Point.

Seems destined to be a series.
Jay was, in a sense, your stereotypical PI described in an almost campy way toward the beginning (and I mean this as a fun description, not negative), but he pulled you in. hard rinking and hard living, he was far from being a saint, yet due to the author's insight into why he was how he was, you felt for him and wanted him to come out on top in a tough situation.
Can't wait to see what he gets himself into next.

Great read, fast-paced, and action filled. I read straight through - kept me engaged and on edge from start to finish. I can't wait for next story in series. Reminds me of the great 40's and 50's detective films.

A wild ride through the streets of Seattle and nearby places. Fast-paced and gripping, it kept my interest all the way through. Jay Tucker is a complex and interesting sort-of hero. A compromised detective with a conscience. I look forward to the next story in the series.

Review by: George Steinitz on March 09, 2011 :
Fast paced and quirky murder mystery which keeps your attention all the way to the end, but leaving an obvious opening for a sequel rather than a more satisfying finish is hokey. I will certainly be looking for that sequel! Dialogue is well done and quite realistic, except maybe not enough 4-letter words.
