Carson is back

It’s been a minute since I was in the unique world of Carson Reno, and I have missed his humor, intelligence, and secondary characters that I’ve come to appreciate. This had all the twists and turns that I’ve come to expect and enjoy following along to their conclusions. His secondary characters are every bit as rich and interesting as his main characters. I also like “not knowing ” until the big reveal and explanations. I really savored and enjoyed this journey. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of the audio version of this and am giving an honest unbiased review. The narrator did an excellent job bringing the characters and story to life. Well done.

Disappearance of Robin Murat

Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews

Darnell’s stories are never disappointing!

Another great Carson Reno story and Darnell delivers it so well. With all the books in this series I have read, I think each new one Darnell releases gets better. This reader loves the character of Reno and the interesting cases that Darnell puts in front of him. Filled with action, mystery, and a grand investigation by Reno, and his cohorts. I loved this story, and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. Cops and mobsters are just the beginning and filled with twists and unpredictability, this is a magnificent story. It’s more than just a story or page-turner, it’s a heart-pounder as well. I look forward to reading more by this author, in this series or anything he wants to release. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews.

This played out like an old west cops and robbers shoot ’em up story. I didn’t know whether to laugh at some of the stupidity ie, Nathan, Lydia and more or just be amazed and shocked that anybody survived. It was entertaining to the very end.

Fantastic book by Gerald W. Darnell!

The twists and turns in it kept me on the edge of my seat. Carson Reno had a real mystery when the dismembered thumbs did not match the bodies. Moreover, the end was remarkable.
I highly recommend this book to everyone!
