“a tightly woven, fast-paced, tension-filled thrill ride.”
The unnamed assassin in Endings receives coded text messages that read like this:
“faithful and true police procedural devotees will thoroughly enjoy the ride Pinter takes them on . . .”
“With plenty of local color in the Florida settings and an abundance of quirky small-town characters, this mystery will whet the reading appetite for more of the same from author D. P.
“Thomas Harris has earned his reputation as a terrific author of crime thrillers, but Cari Mora is not a terrific novel.”
“Another entry in the Lucas Davenport series that keeps raising the bar on thrills and excitement, in a fast-paced police procedural.”
“a page-turner from the onset.”
“Closer to a Jeffery Deaver manhunt emotionally, than to Nordic noir, Manning’s debut crime novel is a keeper.”
A teenaged boy's family is murdered before his eyes, and he ends up in the hospital in unstable condition with multiple stab wounds. In a state of shock, he remains unconscious.
“a combination Philip Marlowe and Mike Hammer with a generous dash of Maxwell Smart.”
Usually crime novels end when the villain is captured or killed, the victim saved, or justice served.
“A marvelous historical mystery, but not for those who want their violence candy-coated.”
When perusing a thriller, readers are expected to suspend their disbelief. Circumstances that are improbable in reality are readily accepted in a fictitious world where anything is possible.
