Holes in the Sky by Mark Reps - Three Stars
This review is based on the entire sample offered through Amazon. I enjoyed the sample and might purchase or at least put it on my wish list. The only reason I did not give four stars and purchase immediately was the formatting. It was very distracting.
Trails of Deception by Rich Curtin - Two Stars
This review is based on the entire sample offered through Amazon. I wasn't impressed. It was very dry and there was too much telling rather than showing for my taste. I understand this is third novel that features the protagonist, but I was three chapters in before I even began to get a picture of Manny Rivera. I think the author should think about having an editor look it over because of some awkward phrasing and repetition.
American Armageddon: A Cautionary Tale by Darrell Maloney - 3 Stars
This review is based on the entire sample offered through Amazon. I enjoyed this sample. I was struck by the 'shock-jock' character, Stu, who reminded me so much of Rush Limbaugh, I was grinning while I read that chapter. The way the author captured Limbaugh's essence was a plus and while I was on the fence about Bill Plant, the physics involved in Tommy's murder of Kerwin, and a few grammatical woes I will put this on my 'to purchase' list.
