Here are two early reviews of East Beach.
(Four stars) “This is not my first book by this author but it is one of my favorites. I enjoyed this suspenseful story. PI Farlow is back in this fast paced story. In this one he finds a FBI Agent shot and dying. Now he is determined to find his killer. You don’t want to miss these twists and turns that will leave you turning pages. This is a well developed story from beginning to end that does a great job of making you feel part of the story. I had no issues connecting to the characters as they brought the story to life. This made a great afternoon read which I highly recommend.”
(Four stars) “Red Farlow is working for free in this case. Why? His friend leaves a quick rather abrupt message that has Red worried so off her heads to Tram’s house only to find him near death. After listening to Tram’s dying words Red knows that he must find the person who killed his friend. With that goal in mind he calls in a group of people that he feels will be helpful in finding the killer and the story unfolds. The story includes an ex-wife, multiple lovers, a motorcycle gang, drug dealers, a seedy dishonest businessman, a few crazy people, and a whole lot more. The book is filled with twists and turns, sleuthing, relationships and an interesting cast of characters. What I liked: * Red: a good man, loyal husband, dedicated private investigator and loyal friend. He is more than capable of staying on the scent to get the baddie. * The newshounds helping Red: interesting people with leads and sources that help locate information while also locating leads for stories they will publish * Red’s wife: didn’t see much of her but she seems to balance Red well * The twists and turns in the story and not knowing who the killer was till nearly the end * That those that might be considered good or bad were never 100% one or the other * The location, writing and story * That the story was complete without a cliffhanger * Looking forward to another book in the series soon What I didn’t like: * The ease with which some take the lives of others * Being reminded of how seedy and difficult the lives of some people are * Knowing it might be awhile before another book in this series is ready for me to read Did I like this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to the author for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4-5 Stars”
