Smashwords book reviews by Philip Fraterrigo

  • The Woman on the Pavement on Oct. 22, 2012

    An interesting story. Give it a read if you're the type of person who likes a mystery. The clues are all there in the story and in hindsight it seems almost obvious but I must admit that I was surprised by the ending. Good story.
  • Abbreviated Magic on Dec. 07, 2012

    A quick read and a good little book. I especially enjoyed the second story, Deja Voodoo. I couldn't wait to see how it would end. (And the ending was well worth the read.)
  • Now They Call Me Gunner on Feb. 02, 2013

    Great book. I vividly remember 1971 and the characters and story line definitely fit the time period. I was hooked after the first page and went along for the ride. And, what a ride it was. This book rolls along and the main character goes from being a geeky high school graduate to a streetwise adult in the course of one summer vacation when he helps to solve a murder and learns the meaning of friendship and loyalty at the same time. This is definitely one to read.
  • Powdered Bones on Oct. 22, 2013

    Very entertaining story that made me laugh.
