Smashwords book reviews by Susan Rodgers

  • Summer of Fear on Jan. 08, 2015

    I enjoyed this book - Christopher McGarry dealt with a difficult subject in a thoughtful, sensitive manner. His descriptive attention to detail is captivating and original, and the reader really gets a sense of 'place.' Antonio is likeable and, interestingly, in quite a predicament. He is conflicted, since his personal views are at odds with the subject matter behind the crimes he finds himself investigating. I particularly respect the author for his research in weaponry and all-things crime related - the reader really feels immersed in another world. Great job, Christopher, looking forward to your next book!
