This book had me hooked right from the beginning and kept me going through to the end. You find yourself quickly immersed in an intense new world and the characters are both compelling, identifiable, fresh, interesting, and mysterious enough to keep your attention. The plot is exciting and does a good job of creating an intricate believable world while keeping up the action. Very well crafted story.
More About The Book
A fast-paced thriller centered on a brutal, time-obsessed serial killer. The expression “killing time” rarely means murder, but here, the victims of a serial killer must pay for time they’ve wasted, often with both their money and their lives. In a brutal scene from the opening chapter, an entire family is murdered after a stranger invades the family’s home and accuses the patriarch of wasting his time. Veteran cop Max Larkin is on the case. Unfortunately, he’s also been assigned a new partner; though she’s green in the field–she has “very sad eyes” and prays upon arriving at the first crime scene–she gives the hardened old detective a new perspective he never knew he needed. But as the serial killer claims more victims, a pattern emerges that neither Max nor his new partner can ignore. With brisk pacing, Thiede’s debut brims with action, violence and, occasionally, emotion. Though the book takes a while to find its heart, procedural fans will feel right at home. Larkin feels like a guy worth rooting for, despite filling the shoes of the beaten-down, grizzled, old loner cop trope a little too well. His interactions with his new partner, plus the twists and revelations regarding his past, give him enough of a pass to get readers invested in the story and looking forward to his next outing. Larkin’s story doesn’t break any boundaries, but it’ll keep crime and thriller fans wrapped up in its twisting plot, fast pace and memorable detective. Plenty of shock value and a charismatic, if formulaic, male lead. – Kirkus Reviews

I loved Reluctant Gods III-Reset! As a science fiction fan, I couldn’t have asked for more. It covers so much of what I enjoy reading about, with a story that keeps you interested through the end. My husband didn’t want to read it by the description at first, but I urged him to just try it. It’s now one of his favorites! He’s even gone back and read the first two in the series, although you can keep up even if you haven’t. I did read them first and am glad I did. Personally, I like to know the in’s and out’s of the stories that I read, so I just had to read the others first. – 5 Star Amazon Review
From Clarion Reviews: “Enticingly entertaining… Julianna and Robert are well-drawn, credible characters… descriptions of the slum are evocative, realistic, and insightful… safe to assume that the realism in the novel emanates from Dan Carroll’s firsthand knowledge and experiences in the slums.”

“Author Avraham Azrieli wades into controversial waters with his fifth novel, “The Mormon Candidate.” His main character, Ben Teller, is a photojournalist who, with his motorcycle has joined the Marine Corps Veterans’ Annual Ride in Washington, D.C. when a terrible accident results in the death of one of the bikers. Suspicious by nature, he senses that Hinckley’s death was not an accident. His investigation leads directly into the political nest of the man running for president of the United States, Joe Morgan, a successful businessman and active LDS member. Throughout the novel, details are revealed about the daily practices and social beliefs of members of the Mormon Church. A well-written page-turner, this is an entertaining novel.” Kel Kanady,Mercury News
“…masterfully conceived, dramatically atmospheric…Highly recommended.” Literary Aficionado “…a home run with fiction lovers… keeps the reader guessing until the very end.” Pacific Book Review
Being a go to Tech by Warren C. Zabloudil is a great how-to and self improvement that should be read by not only anyone going into the IT (information technology) field but any service-based career. Mr. Zabloudil uses a common sense approach pointing out the ins and outs that will make you the individual (or team leader) that everyone looks to when their computer systems are down. The book brings up several good points that we may have heard before but not in as clear and precise as Mr. Zabloudil puts it in this book. He points out how different types of attitudes can affect performance and steps that should be taken to change your outlook when going into a job or dealing with management. You will be shown the importance of listening, documenting, understanding, communication and time management. – J. Wallace 5 Star Amazon Review
