  • As The Twig Is Bent: A Matt Davis Mystery on Dec. 07, 2009

    Edge-of-Your Seat Suspense from Page One! If you like suspense, grab a copy of As the Twig is Bent, pull up a seat, and prepare to be on the edge of it from page one of Joe Perrone Jr.’s unrelenting thrill-ride! Skipping the foreplay, Perrone wastes no time introducing the reader to the merciless serial killer who’s terrorizing the neighborhood of Chelsea, and preying on unsuspecting victims from Internet chat rooms. Firmly holding us captive with the intense opening scene, the author then weaves innumerable twists and turns into the plot, as homicide detective, Matt Davis, races to stop the killer. The writing is bold, the descriptions are vivid, and the plot is seamless right through to the explosive ending. One would never guess As the Twig is Bent is a first in the genre for Perrone, as he has clearly already mastered all the dynamic qualities and elements of a best-selling work of commercial fiction—and a bonus: I’ve learned that the author will be sending Detective Matt Davis on yet another adventure in his upcoming novel Opening Day! Five stars, and can’t wait for more! — Julia Dudek, author of Pieces
  • Vision: Evan's Book on March 15, 2010

    In the evolution of Jade Walker from a simple librarian to the ultimate killing machine, author Dan Fitzpatrick takes us on an adventure in Vision: Evan's Book where an unlikely hero discovers he is the only person who can stop the deadliest serial killer the world has ever known. This genre-bending thriller leaves no elemental stone unturned with its blend of nail-biting suspense, heart-pounding action, sci-fi mystique, and romantic intrigue. What I thought was especially clever was the thoughtful structure of the novel--how the author revolved us around the story in three hundred sixty degrees, often jumping through time to reveal more of the back-story, leaving us fully immersed under the many layers that make up Vision. Fitzpatrick's page-turning cliffhangers are inspired and unforgiving, but none are as merciless as the last, which will launch us into the sequel, Vision II: The Black Skull, poised to answer the questions that left us dangling on the edges of our seats. Dark, compelling, and thoroughly entertaining, five stars for Fitzpatrick's debut novel.
