Review of Last Breath of Innocence

The Last Breath of Innocence

By Anna Cartman

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

This story of two young adults, Keeley the narrator and her childhood boyfriend Kieran, grow into teens with baggage that defines their choices.
Confused in their entanglement, those choices crossed them over to the wrong side of the law.

Ms. Cartman’s novel holds you to the end, laying out Keeley’s reasons as to why she gets up each morning in a household she had no choice in living in, because of parent’s demise. Her only male friend, Kieran, moves in next door, when she is eleven years old.

Their relationship builds, but Kieran is forced to leave because of an event they could not control. Meeting again in their teens, that event’s effect on their personalities brings them together in a strange one sided love affair.

Ms. Cartman brings you to a chilling end of that affair, which will stick with you after reading the last chapter. Throughout the novel, you will sympathize with Keeley’s plight to find herself, which we can all empathize with.

Innocence is capture in this well written young adult novel. We were all young and will understand their choices.

Review of Last Stop: Paris

Last Stop: Paris

By John Pearce

Reviewed Author Roy Murry


This adventure is centered on a couple named Eddie and Aurelie, who reside in Paris. Their coming together, living together, and future are interesting and needed to understand the going ons.

These two socialites are in a whirlwind that will define their future. International characters come back into their lives; and they will help define their future.

Mixed with murder, kidnapping, international gold standard fixing, and Russian mafia movement, the couple are included in a non-official crime fighting group including the USA’s CIA and Interpol. These characters’ subplots commingled with the main one that drives this thrilling story forward.

All the characters are well defined and primed for another adventure when Last Stop is consumed. The bad guys didn’t fare so well. However, some doors are left open which could lead to the couple’s future involvement.

Last Stop: Paris, like Mr. Pearce’s Treasure of Saint-Lazare, is a fast paced thriller that can be read individually or read after Treasure… I have read both and can say that I will be looking forward to reading another of Mr. Pearce’s intriguing novels.

Review of From New York to the Smokies

From New York to the Smokies

By Wayne Zurl

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

I read about sixty books a year and sometimes come back to one of my favorites. Wayne Zurl’s Sam Jenkins, I once called spiffy, is an ex-New York detective, who becomes the Chief of Police in a small town in the Smokies (Mountain range at the Tennessee – North Carolina border, USA.)

In this book, Sam is put in multiple situations where experience police detective work is needed to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion. I won’t go into the individual plots, but will say that Mr. Zurl’s characters are well developed and fun to read about.

You can tell Sam is the outsider and is working at a somewhat disadvantage because of the culture clash. Mountain small town people don’t do things the same way as city people like Sam would do.

However, there are common traits in all of us humans, and Sam understands them in the way he approaches a crime. You’ll love how his humanity gets him to where he wants to go in his crime solving.

Review of Just East of Key West

Just East of Key West

By Tom Winton

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry


Even though I am not a fisherman, I was pulling on the line with the protagonist Frank towards the end. He has gone on a fishing trip passing by different characters on the wharf.

They are not the center of the story. Like in Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, I got the feeling that Frank enjoyed his venture down to the sea. Without the sea, they would not be complete.

He gets irritated with those who don’t cherish the moment of fishing. Those are the people who don’t prepare for the event.

He gets upset with himself in the middle of his event in trying to catch a big one. He made an error in preparation and would be damned.

Whether he or the fish will be damned on the last pull of the rod will be known to you in the last paragraph of this fast paced novella. Like me you will get caught up in the action.





Review of Bentwhistle the Dragon

Bentwhistle the Dragon
                  In
A Threat from the Past

By Paul Cude

Reviewed by Roy Murry

Did you know that dragons turn into humans? Neither did I. But, Mr. Cude does a very good job of convincing me of them existing in the days of yore. Maybe they are still with us.

Seriously, young adults will enjoy this fantasy. A parallel world is interwoven with the real world protecting it from the evils of that world.

Dragons shift into human form. They do this to infiltrate our supposedly superior, friendly world, helping protect humans from the monsters of the world.

Mr. Cude told a story that was amusing and delightful. The prose was more telling than showing, but keeps the reader's interested. You will look at people after reading this novel and wondering if they are dragons or not. LOL

Take a journey that is written for the young at heart, which I am one. Are you?

Review of Amina: The Silent One

Amina: The Silent One

Written by Fiza Pathan

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry


A beautiful girl is brought into the world. What more could a loving couple want? In many cultures, including India, they would want a boy first and foremost.

Amina is the third child of Jaffar and his wife, as she is referred to throughout most of the story. Not only is Amina the third, but she is the third girl of a Indian Muslim family.

The matriarch of the family is outraged and begs Allah to forgive the family for their sins. Why else would Allah curse them with not three but five girls and no boy to carry on their name?

To the matriarch and many in their society, a girl is to be used for domestic chores, child bearing, and for the pleasure of her husband. She has no rights or to progress in the new world order.

In Amina, Ms. Pathan paints a vivid and disturbing picture of how women are USED (For no other appropriate word) by the ignorant religious male controllers of some societies. Unfortunately, this persists in some parts world today.

This is a story of an Indian family that has a disaster, setbacks, and jubilations.  Amina, though, is the center of it, where she receives the brunt of her country’s brutal underbelly of illegal use of women. It is her innate natural ability to play music, listen intently, and not speak, that helps her overcome the ignorance around her.

Ms. Pathan writes with a knowledgeable pen. Her colorful ink I will enjoy reading again, soon.

Review of Perfectly Flawed

Perfectly Flawed
By Shaunna Rodriguez


Reviewed by Author Roy Murry


‘I Love Lucy’ was a popular TV program in the 50’s and 60’s. Lucy got into all kinds of trouble just being lovable and beautiful Lucy.

In Ms. Rodriguez’ Perfectly Flawed, her Grace, like Lucy, is just being Grace. Being trusting and gullible in their relationship with men, Lucy was lucky; Grace is not.

The episodes that Grace goes through are funny and sad at the same time, because of the way she looks at life. She meets a man at work and goes with the flow without questioning his or her status.

This leads into an adventure that has you laughing at her naivety but understanding her motivation. The character Ms. Rodriguez has developed is one that many can relate to and one many will follow after reading this fast pace hilarious snippet of Grace’s life.

Shaunna style is easy to read and follow. I think I may follow Grace for a book or two.


Review of Five Spot

Five Spot
Written by Cindy Blackburn

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

As my readers know, I like a good mystery. ‘Five Spot’ is a whodunit that leads you in one direction, then sends you into another, and finally has you confused until you hit the Five Spot.

Part-time sleuth Jessie and her police chief husband Wilson are at a Romance Novel Conference when one of her cohorts dies in the middle of an event. Although it seems like a clear cut murder, the victim who died is or may not have been the target.

How this situation is unraveled is quite funny. The characters clash in a humorous way but help bring about a conclusion the reader can live with.

Ms. Blackburn’s style has developed into one that I enjoy. It flows nicely keeping you laughing to the end. Using characters that have unusual likings for Romance novels, she has woven in a murder mystery that keeps you interested even if you don’t care for romance.

I recommend any of Ms. Blackburn’s novels. All have different twists, that are enjoyable.

Review of The Puzzle

The Puzzle
 (Samantha Jamison Mystery)

Written by Peggy A. Edelheit

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

What would you do if the police came to your front door and told you your loved one had been murdered? This is the beginning of The Puzzle.

Samantha is in denial. How could this be? I just took him to the airport. How did he die behind the wheel of a rental car on his way to his hometown?

To put the pieces together in this hard to explain event, she goes to the source, trying to put The Puzzle together – to the people who knew her secretive husband best. In this quest, she becomes a new person, questioning and feeding off his boyhood’s closest friends, acquaintances, and the small town he grew up in.

Protecting his memory and not knowing the full extent of his endeavor, they are allusive when Samantha tries to get to the truth. It comes to light after much probing and self-evaluation by all who knew her husband well, including Samantha.

Ms. Edelheit’s writing is clear cut with no clutter. Her chapters are short, and to the point, forcing you to turn to the next (And the next,) looking for the answers yourself. It won’t take you long to get to the truth – it’s a fast read.
Good opening for a series with nine books in it. You might get hooked.

Review of Oblivion's Forge


Oblivion Forge

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry


I have mixed feelings in writing this review. On the one hand, I know it’s a difficult task to write the first book in a series, but on the other I believe it is the author’s duty to make it simple to read, so it will be a good launch for the series.

Oblivion’s Forge is not the end but the beginning of the Aona Series. Mr. Williams does an excellent job of developing his characters and plot. However, he has not made it simple for the reader – his audience.

As an avid read, I got lost in the many unconnected plots until the end, which was a long time coming. I would have liked to have read a shorter version with less characters to follow.

When readers get to the final page, they will be left wanting more, because of the fascination of the subject – the beliefs of the human race, and how those beliefs forge us toward our own oblivion – death. They may want to read it again to get a better grasp of the interwoven plots.

Review of Bang Bang You're Dead

Bang Bang You’re Dead
By Nick Quantrill

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

This British Collection novel is written in an English dialect which may offend some. However, its reality is compelling.

The life of a released from prison murder is highlighted. He returns to his home town to find out what happened to his brother, who seemed to have overdose on drugs.

Unfortunately, his return embeds him in the criminal element he wishes to avoid but grew up within. His journey is to free himself from that element and find out what really happened to his brother.

The dialectic prose may be confusing to some Americans, but the story line and characters drive this miss-adventure. It is fast paced and the personalities are down to earth but somewhat delusional in their concept of what is the good life.

This book will lead into areas that exist in the underbelly of many cities, where power lies in the hands of a few criminals. An adventure I enjoyed reading.

Mr. Smith’s first book in a series is a little slow at the beginning, because he is setting up the world as it is in this fiction with some present day themes. It may be difficult for the reader to understand the fictional terrain, but it is worth the effort.

Lizzie’s adventure goes through lands with strange characters that are different. She is in a learning curve that should lead her home.

Taking that journey with her leaves you in conundrum. Will then end be the end? Stephen has let you hanging, wanting more, as a good first book in a series should do.

This is a fast paced police story a la TV’s Law and Order without the Order. You see part of the crime; the chase is on; and then the criminal is abducted with some police blood lost.

No frill, character driven thriller, moves along quickly to an obvious conclusion with a few surprises. It’s a good lead into a series because Mr. Donovan has developed his characters to the point that you want to know what will happen to them next.

From the silence of the mind, everything begins. This I got from Freud’s writings, trying to answers Socrates’ questions, and reading books about the power of positive thinking. A seed is planted in the silent mind and something positive or negative is produced.

Mr. Swisher’s tells the story of a young man named Shannon, who had read the Bible by age six, completed the encyclopedia by age ten, and could understand all known languages as a teen. With all his education, he wants to know his purpose.

Platonic love affair begins on the first day of school and he is loved by his mother. But, Shannon can’t love either of them until he can understand why he is here on earth, because of the diverse voices talking to him.

He sees images, who are directing his life. Because of their connection to Shannon, his mother and his sweetheart Katrina see the images also - ghosts?

Before graduating High School, Shannon goes on his journey to answer the questions that Socrates used to stimulate his students: Why are we here? What is love? Who is God? , Et al. The events that follow lead to the end. Only you can decide if Shannon's questions are answered.

Mr. Swisher’s characters’ creative and somewhat challenging dialog s propel the story/journey forward. The deep thought that was put into the prose will keep the reader thinking. And the ending will surprise all.

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Ms. Barrett effortlessly tells the story of a murder that seems to everyone to be an accident. Her protagonist, Tricia Miles, is the owner of ‘Haven’t Got a Clue’ mystery bookstore in Booktown, Stoneham, New Hampshire.

In this quiet small town, on Founder’s Day, to the horror of the participants, the airplane that is promoting the event, crashes into the platform where the speaker is announcing the day’s itinerary. From this point, Tricia goes into here ‘What if…’ mode, using her sister Angelica as a sounding board.

The clues appear to Tricia, but everyone she confides in believes that she is way off base and that the deadly event was an accident and nothing more.  She is the only one convinced that there is more than meets the eye.

Tricia, in her dog-like light investigation, unravels the coincidences by just conversing with those involved with no abusive questioning. What she comes across will surprise all who read this somewhat witty Whodunit.

The prose is fast pace, non abrasive, and somewhat comical in a New Hampshire sort of way. A small town, where everyone knows everyone, is a hard place to hide from a sleuth as Ms. Barrett’s Tricia.

The Audubon Caper
By Roy Murry

Reviewed by Arizona Deputy Sheriff and ex-Defense Lawyer


Mike McNeff 's review of The Audubon Caper on Amazon 8/17/2015
A story of danger, intrigue, and betrayal …

I had a long career as cop and during that time I laid out the infamous option of "work for me or go to prison" many times. Roy Murry tells his story of when that option was given to him. He made the mistake of thinking that simply delivering a kilo of cocaine would be a quick deal for easy money. It was... until a federal agent came knocking on his door. Roy then found out he no longer controlled his life.

Murry tells his story with keen wit, sharp observation and personal soul searching. The story starts out a little slowly but then it grabbed me like a fast current and carried me into a turbulent sea of danger, intrigue and betrayal.

You'll have to read this true story to figure out who created the intrigue and who betrayed who.

If you are interested in stories of investigations of major crime conspiracies told from the inside, you must read this book. Based on my experience, I can tell you every word rings true.

A great read.

In Too Deep

In Too Deep, A New Zealand Second Chances Romance
Written by Tracey Alvarez

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

If you are like me, you like books that give you a different perspective of the mating ritual. New Zealand is a place I would like to venture to; and one of their islands is the center of this romantic novel. The way they mate is communal and somewhat frustrating because everyone knows each other.

The beautiful picturesque description of that country is the backdrop of a love affair between a National Police Woman Diver, Piper, who returns home to a small island tourism village, and her childhood sweetheart, a Free Diver named West. They both have conflicts, determining whether their love exists and how to sustain it considering their past performances.

As in all Romance novels, there are love scenes. But Ms. Alvarez has a knack of keeping you on the edge, despondent that the couple cannot culminate the situation. This will keep the reader involved to the end.

The dialogue is witty and somewhat intelligent if you don’t know the language. It’s English that you need to be acquainted with to get the full meaning of each encounter of the two mating and the community they grew up in.

However, Ms. Alvarez does a good job in bringing the story to a climax. I enjoyed the tit for tat of the New Zealand characters portrayed in this engaging novel that starts the Due South Series.

For you ghost busters out there, this is a good book for you. A spirit has taken up residence in her father’s Indian mansion for the last hundred years. India’s religious superstitions come alive when some villagers want to banish the spirit.

The spirit’s story is of guilt for the love ones she lost. At times, she, the spirit, appears to a few villagers, who become her ally in her endeavor to ‘Cross over’ after finding her soul.

Mores of the past and present come together to bring the story to an end, where being a person is more important than following some precedent set down by ancestors. Love finds each of us in deferent ways no matter what our cultural background is an underling theme.

Ms. Gandhi does a fine job in explaining the Indian culture that is interwoven throughout this delightful story of anguish. The spirit finds her way after the visit of doppelgangers of the people she loved and lost.

Review of Last Vegas

We are all getting old, but we should never allow our fun side to fade away. In LAST VEGAS, elderly men go to Las Vegas for what seems to be the last time to celebrate a bachelor party for one of their oldest friends.

This star studded cast of Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freedman, Kevin Kline, and others gets back to having fun after living a full life. Some of their lives before the trip consisted of making it through the day.

Douglas’s character, who is seventy, is living his bachelor life and is about to marry a thirty four year old. They all come together to celebrate that.

This comedy comes alive with unexpected events that will have you laughing and thinking about what you would do in the same circumstances. De Niro’s character is the realist who can’t seem to come alive.

Douglas and De Niro’s past come to the front and culminate into mutual agreement after it is brought up in another relationship – the caring for another. This pleasantly unravels.

Acting is good and the storyline is understandable.
