S.W. Hubbard has nailed it again with the 3rd in the Frank Bennett Adirondack Mysteries, Dead Drift. This story, like the others, is complex, suspenseful and very fast paced. The characters are amazingly well written and so well rounded that I often feel they could leave the Kindle screen and speak to me.I hope there are many more of these to come because I love them and I'm hooked. I found the first book in the series just a week ago and now I've read all three! You can't go wrong reading anyth [...]
Another strong additionI'm so glad to have found this author,and this story is another hit on the series for me. Small town cop but still dealing with several serious crimes and all tied up by the endLooking forward to the next one. Recommended highly.
Blood KnotThis is a very good series. I am really enjoying it. It is a very good suspense thriller. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I recommend this series.
I thought this story was outstanding. It has excellent characterization and the quirky small town detail woven into a superb plot that is complex and fast paced, with plenty of twists and turns to keep a reader guessing. It is wrapped up with a satisfying resolution. The crimes are serious without the gore that feature in other books. For anyone who enjoys a police procedural, I recommend this series.
This was a good one! Looking forward to the next!
Love this series!!! Although I read them out of order each mystery stands fine on its own. Frank Bennett a small town cop in the Adirondacks is very likable main character & has a lot of depth. Widowed, bouncing back from that & an old case that haunts him, this job has been a life saver. A couple murders, a tough love youth school in his district and a spark of interest in a local lady all come together at the end seamlessly. What I like about this author is you got some idea who might [...]
This is the third Adirondack police procedural (see SWALLOW THE HOOK and TAKE THE BAIT). I've come to really like the main characters, especially Frank Bennett. Frank is a widower and a hard working, intelligent but sometimes politically incorrect officer in the small town of Trout Run. This time Frank is looking into an academy for wayward teens when accidents and other strange things start to happen to the students and faculty. I give this a 4.5 - some grammar issues on the Kindle. A nice clea [...]
Another great small town mysteryGood convoluted storyline with lots of twists and turns. Glad it looks like Frank might finally find a lady friend and a lovely touch at the end when Frank finds out Father Bob is really a genuine person. The only thing I don't like about these series is the way the author changes to another scene with no break in the flow of writing. It tends to be confusing.
These three books were passed between my daughters and my niece one summer. We all enjoyed reading them!
Still goodStill enjoy reading her books, definitely some twists and turns! Ready to read the next in the series, and look for more.
Read this back over the summer, discovered it on vacation in the Adirondacks. Now I have one more to read, Swallow the Hook.
I've really enjoyed all of the books in this series. Looking forward to reading the authors next book when it is published.
