In My Own Words:
I've recently had to discontinue regular posting of customer reviews.

From past efforts [which, except for previous commitments have been halted due to low ebb health] I have 300+ reviews posted on Amazon USA. I've posted collections of reviews on mystery series and have provided Listmanias on some of those.

I'm currently spending severely limited time writing and publishing my work with KINDLE … Read more

Writing, reading, sleeping... For over two decades I traveled the alleyways between the moon and New York City for publisher's back doors, or open doors anywhere. Now I have KDP! I prefer to have my work on Kindle over any other type of publication… Read more

Paper Doll by Robert B. Parker
Paper Doll by Robert B. Parker
Push a Pin into the perfection balloon. What is marriage ... what are styles of domesticity ... to a wealthy WASP, to a liberated couple like Spenser and Susan, to a good-guy gay cop, to a State Senator, to an aging wealthy southerner.

The concluding scene in DOUBLE DEUCE, # 19 in the Spenser series, catered a surprising twist to Susan and Spenser's attempts at traditional homemaking. That close was as refreshing to the double S as a storm-brought rainbow. The choice carried in DD's final chapter surfaced in silent style into the thematic structure of PAPER DOLL, # 20 in the Spenser series.

To Loudon Tripp seeking the private eye to find his wife's killer, Spenser… Read more
The Days of the Bitter End by Jack Engelhard
The Days of the Bitter End by Jack Engelhard
Being engrossed in a novel is all I ask, i.e., give me the opposite of a yawn. I know I will count no yawns when reading anything by Jack Engelhard. DAYS OF THE BITTER END, presently working toward a movie presentation, was as engrossing as other novels I've read by Engelhard. Yet, DAYS had something more. I'm not sure I'll be able to isolate that "more."

What continued catching my attention while reading DAYS was the STRUCTURE of this novel of the 60's, a story seen through the unique perspective of a Jewish immigrant, Ben Jaffa, though the surface format of the story follows the high-talent-for-imitation and depressed-mental-state of stand-up-comic, Cliff Harris, John F… Read more
Escape from Mount Moriah: Memoirs of a Refugee Chi&hellip by Jack Engelhard
When I first saw it, I puzzled at the biblical scene on this book's cover. I should be ashamed to say I didn't immediately recognize it as the Rembrandt representation of God's request of Abraham to offer his son on Mount Moriah. I'm not well versed in the bible, nor in the great works of art, so I appreciated having the factual details presented inside the cover as well as on it. I was intensely intrigued about that event being said to have led to the creation of the Jewish people. I wanted to know more.

As I read further into the flap copy and introductory remarks I began anticipating reading something special, not just a book I would welcome getting lost in, living in as a… Read more
