    • Check out my blog for reviews historicalfictionobsession.bloOne of the reasons I m happy that I finally started this book blog, and that I m getting and review requests by authors I ve never heard of, is because I am reading a lot of novels that I never would have looked twice at I have never been interested in crime, mystery, or suspense novels, but by accepting review requests I ve realized what I have been missing out on by not expanding my reading to a wider variety of genres before now.I [...]

    • One of the better mystery thrillers I ve read for awhile Good character development, fast pace and tightly plotted Good sense of the setting, obvious knowledge of Native American background and law enforcement as well as western water rights problems, which often does not happen with books set in the modern west Since I lived most of my life in that general kind of setting, errors in location character background will turn me off a book very quickly It was not detailed, but what was there was do [...]

    • This novel was hard for me to rate On my own scale it would be somewhere between a 3 and 4 star rating The first 75% of the novel moved quickly and the last quarter kind of dragged I do appreciate he avoided one of the traps that annoys me about the genre characters doing things that a physically improbable As this is the first in his series about the main character Travis Mays he sets the back story for him He does create characters you can care about.I did have a problem with the villains They [...]

    • Random thoughts prior to full review.Long, long, long, but good Very well done, though a little choppy in terms of transitions here and there Overall, the story was a great mystery and the characters were all very likable I figured out who the main killers were fairly early on, but even so, it was still great I think it could have been shorter though There were about three times that I thought the novel was about finished only to find I still had a ways to go.


    • Though an indie author, Mark Young makes an average everyday Joe blend in well with his than average surroundings Only 2.50 on Definitely worth it Looking forward to his next O rourke novel Off The Grid was definitely a great book possibly a better read than Revenge I m keeping this guy in my sights Pun intended.


    • I really wanted to love this book and it started out quite well But the plot was overwrought with implausible connections obviously manufactured to make it complex And then the climax was ruined with one of those scream at the tv moments where the characters cannot see what is so obviously in front of them Still a decent read, just not a fave.


    • I very much enjoyed this book Characters were done well The author made me see the scenery in the book The story held my interest and has turns and twists I would label this book a thriller and who done it It held my interest and kept me turning the pages A truly good read I would recommend and look forward to reading from this author Great book story.


    • I thought this was a very good book I like suspense and this one definitely has a lot of anxious uncertainly about what may or may not happen The places in the book are accurately described and actually do exist Mark did a great job of keeping readers from figuring out who the bad guy is Good job, Mark


    • This is a great suspense book I am usually good at knowing who the bad guy is, and why they are bad in any given novel, yet this one kept me guessing until the very end The technical information was fascinating and it kept me up at night, as I could not put it down Great author I can t wait until his next book comes out.


    • It was a great introduction to what possibly is a series The characters were likeable and the action wasn t too predictable I did figure it out with about 30 pages or so to go Full review at Girl Who Reads.


    • First off, I am really out of practice reading police books Mark has delivered a great debut, with an intricate, multi layered plot Keep up with the details I loved his hero, Travis Mays and the unique setting and cultural backdrop that almost became a character itself.


    • I was able to get this book free on my kindle and was very impressed with itWill definitely be reading books by this authorThe book was a very well written,suspenseful mystery thrillerHighly recommend it


    • RevengeIf a story is one that I can t wait to get back to, that story is a five star story Revenge is one of those The plot is believable, the characters are likeable, and the action is non stop This is a roller coaster ride with a truly surprising ending.


    • A male friend recommended this novel I thought it would be too macho for me, but I loved it Lots of twists and turns.





    • Enjoyed the fast pace and tight plot Locations were described well allowing for a real feel for the Idaho mountains and streams Never really knew what would happen next
