Review of Mayhem: A Detective Matt Deal Thriller (Detective Matt Deal Thrillers, #2

Writer Stephen Bentley, a former UK police Detective Sergeant, pioneering undercover cop, and barrister has published a sequel in the series about Detective Matt Deal, who is still seeking revenge for the death of his daughter Mercy. A New Jersey Mob boss puts out a contract on Deal for his part in the killings of his hit man. A journey to Mexico finds Matt in the midst of a cartel in the drug wars and face to face with a ruthless capo.

Bentley provides some back story for those who haven’t read Mercy, although Mayhem is a stand-alone novel. The book is easy to read, entertaining and a fast-paced action story. New characters make an appearance in addition to familiar ones from the first book. Readers of Bentley’s fiction won’t be disappointed.

Emmie speaks with a sense of wonder

      EMMIE OF INDIANAPOLIS by Kay Castaneda

“Too many YA authors feel the need to show their adult self in the narrative, where as Castaneda successfully avoids that pit fall. “Emmie of Indianapolis” reads as if Emmie is speaking directly to us, simply, succinctly, sometimes without understanding, and other times with deep understanding; but more often than not a sense of wonder. From time to time Emmie does use words from the adult world, and Castaneda’s prose choices makes it clear that Emmie uses them with a child’s appreciation – as borrowed words, rather than as her own.”   Amazon review   5 Stars

5 Stars *****GREAT book!!

and suspenseful!! There are bios and accreditation for each Author.
I will be looking for more books of each Author.
GREAT book to read at one sitting or to savour by reading over a few sittings.

5 Stars ***** Amazing!

A good anthology of murder mysteries. Stories of interesting and entertaining genre. Stories of murder and mayhem. Stories of the unexplained. Stories that make you think. From some of the best authors, new and seasoned. A definite must read!

4 Stars****Well-written detective fiction, serial killers and more

This reminds me of reading the Ellery Queen or Alfred Hitchcock mystery magazine. Each of the stories in the collection is a well-written and well-planned murder mystery short story, and it’s hard to find good short stories. There is something for everyone as the stories encompass detective fiction, serial killers, sci-fi, and much more. As is often the case, some of the stories may appeal to you more than others, but in general, I think any mystery fan will be quite pleased with the selections.
