Format: Mass Market Paperback
Emerson's only moderately competent private eye sails through a tale that presents moral dilemmas as well as insights into relationships without being pretentious, some wildly improbable characters, witty wise-guy prose and a strongly realistic evocation of the West Coast. Easy reading and excellent of its type!

This was the first (but not the last) Earl W. Emerson book I've read. I found it very enjoyable, and could not put it down until I was done. Being from the Pacific Northwest, I especially enjoyed all the references to familiar places. I went to our local bookstore this afternoon and purchased several more Earl W. Emerson mysteries. Can't wait to get started. Going back to start at the beginning of the Thomas Black series with "Rainy City", as I would like to see his relationship with Kathy unfold in chronological order. Highly recommended and just plain fun!

I've read all of Emerson's Thomas Black books and have enjoyed every single one of them. (I'm currently reading Catfish Cafe). I started reading this series almost 10 years ago and am constantly waiting for new ones to come out. The humor as well as mystery in his books keep you reading until the very end. I'm not into really gory and scary books but I love mysteries. Emerson's writing gives me exactly what I want. Deception Pass was not quite as suspenseful as some of his other books (try Million Dollar Tattoo). I kind of knew the ending in the middle of the book, but I read mostly because I enjoy the character Thomas Black and I like to hear the descriptions of Seattle in the books. This book is written in the typical Emerson style and you won't be disappointed!

I was lucky enough to catch Earl Emerson on television recently and now I'm hooked on his books. Not being a reader of mysteries I have found his writing to be a nice change of pace from my usual fare. Mr. Emerson has a style of writing that I refer to as conversational. His dialogue is witty and informal. It's as if he is speaking rather than writing and I find it to be a nice change from many of the history writers I read. Without giving away any of the story Deception Pass seemed to be wrapped up in the first fifty or so pages. I wondered what could possibly be left to tell in the next 250 pages? Little did I realize that the story was only just beginning rather than concluding. I knew there had to be a reason why the eventual murderer was introduced to the story, but I never would have guessed he was the one. To the bitter end I suspected it was somebody else (I don't know who. Just somebody else.) I had a great time trying, in vain, to identify the killer. In summary Deception Pass is a quick read that is also thoroughly enjoyable.
