4.0 out of 5 stars FAST PACED AND CHOCK-A-BLOCK WITH DANGER April 9 2009
By Gail Cooke - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Someone recently wrote an article indicating that the sale of romance novels has gone up during this economic slump. People, it seems, want to escape through their reading. Since I'm not a great fan of bodice-rippers I'd like to suggest that reading a good thriller is a fine way to escape for a while, and to this end try Joel Goldman's The Dead Man.

Second in the Jack Davis series this story will capture with the opening pages - a sheriff goes to a brutal murder scene at a farmhouse. A couple is dead, brutally murdered, slaughtered really, rather reminiscent of the Clutter killings. But in that case the murderers were caught - in this case they are not.

As many will remember Jack is a former FBI agent. He suffers from a movement disorder that causes him to shake, thus the FB no longer believes he is capable of service. Milo Harper runs an institute aimed at helping people control their dreams. However, her institute may now be named in a law suit due to recent deaths of patients.

A friend of Jack's recommends him to Milo to run security for her. Said friend presents this opportunity to Jack as the perfect job for him - set your own hours, take breaks whenever you wish, etc. Jack's response is, "I haven't had a perfect job since Sue Ellen Erickson asked me to carry her books home in the fifth grade." Nonetheless, he takes the job.

It's not long before he has reason to wish he was back in the fifth grade as his investigation soon reveals that there is a psychotic serial killer on the loose.

Chock-a-block with danger and fast-paced The Dead Man will take anyone's mind off a dwindling bank account, at least for a while.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too predictable! Jan. 12 2012
By Othercat - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book really shouldn't be compared to Grisham or Patterson. It had a great storyline, but it was soooo predictable! I knew who the killer was within 15 minutes. After that, I felt like I was just waiting for the characters to catch up. This could have been easily avoided by omitting just a couple of scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 star mystery thriller June 9 2009
By Denise Crawford - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Entertaining thriller featuring a very interesting protagonist!
Former FBI agent, disgraced Jack Davis, suffers from a neurological ailment that causes tics (involuntary spasms and muscle movements) and brain fog. Nevertheless, he is hired by billionaire Milo Harper to investigate why participants in a dream study he has funded have started to turn up dead - and have died in just the very way that they had nightmares about! The body count rises and Jack teams up with his landlady, a former cop named Lucy who was jailed for stealing diamonds from a crime scene, and the search for the killer is on.

The story is set in Kansas City, my hometown, and that added another interesting layer to the novel as I had fun identifying with the landmarks, streets, and other familiar details. The story blends past events to current circumstances in a well crafted tale but there is one main unanswered question at the end!

The characters are the best part of this mystery and I think there might be a sequel using them - at least I hope so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - but OH so predictable! June 30 2009
By Barbara J. Ray - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book mostly because of the characters. I loved the interaction between Jack and Lucy most of all. HOWEVER - the killer's identity was so obvious - almost from the beginning. Most of the time when this happens I generally give the book only one or two stars - but because the characters were so interesting and the "read" pleasurable I gave it the three stars.

I was a bit surprised by the ending and was longing for more. Excellent writer as I often wonder how the characters are doing even today. I'd definitely recommend this book. I'm certainly looking forward to more books by this author.
