THE UNLIKELY VICTIMS

When reading this first rate mystery, one might think that this story will be character driven and short change the setting. However the opening paragraph sets the scene. The author uses beautiful language and creates haunting images fulfilling the reader’s thirst for vividly painted backdrop against which

the characters can play out their dramas.

I loved the ending. How powerful! It’s so true in life that we end up crossing paths with people in ways that defy logic and truly make us feel the presence of a Higher Power orchestrating it all. All of your stories bring this point home and have a very positive perspective as well as being entertaining with excellent twists. You truly are gifted – can’t wait for more. I’m passing the book among my friends, so you’ll have a following in the New York area.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Unlikely Victims. In fact, I stayed up until two in the morning to finish it. I found your characters to be very believable, human and likeable. I look forward to reading more about them. I like the pathos that is built into the story and I feel very sorry for Detective Gabe Garshowitz. I love Mystic! He sounds like a great friend and I look forward to hearing more about him.

This is a book with complex themes nicely woven into plots that leave the reader constantly on the edge of his chair. Will 60-year-old Gabe Garshowitz be forced into retirement? Will Detective Munz take over the squad room? Will Iris return after being shot in one of Munz’s busts that went wrong? Every chapter brings more drama, suspense and a bit of humour. Add an interesting twist at the end and this is a novel that is not only a great read, it would make for a great viewing as well.
