Mystery and Ghosts!
A mystery that kept me reading and kept me guessing. The author took me to a quieter time and place in small town Florida and Georgia, but the ghosts were not quiet. Reporter, Molly Martindale, urged on by those ghosts from the past, is determined to uncover the hidden secrets of her town.
Laugh out loud.
Few writers can make me laugh out loud. Bob Sanchez is one of them. His characters are hilarious and the story even has a plot. I want to read more from this author.
Intense reading. Great characters. Great writing!
This book is a page-turner. It held my attention from beginning to end. The characters are so alive you can see them. I liked the way the story gave us present and past flashbacks of the group of friends growing up together. I want more from this author.
Anonymous Sources is Mary Louise Kelly’s first novel. Kelly is an insider of the news media and her protagonist, Alexander James, is a reporter who becomes obsessed with the death of a young man at Harvard University. James is convinced it is murder. She follows a strange tale that takes her from Massachusetts to Cambridge, England, and back to Washington, DC. She tangles with British and US spies and stumbles onto a terrorist scheme.
The book is fast-paced and fun. Kelly’s plot keeps you reading. You will find intrigue, humor, interesting characters, and insight into news reporting and the intelligence world. It’s one of those books I read in a couple of nights.
This story is a romp through Florida with the feel of “The Perils of Pauline.” The heroin, Lizzy, is a somewhat naïve, sexy, young woman who keeps `getting caught with her pants down,’ literally. She has a romantic interlude with the villain before she realizes he is a villain.
She stumbles over illegal aliens who are being shipped into Florida. She finds they are treated like slaves by a farmer who believes he is doing the work of God. She is shot at, kidnapped (twice), rescued by an old mafia don, later by her hero, and even once by a Florida panther. Although, she is pretty adept at rescuing herself.
It is fast paced and an easy read. There is plenty of violence and some romance. A little taste of everything for everyone.
