In all honesty, I must admit this thriller was written by me. I've had a lot of grief over it - one friend was very upset when she fell a week behind on her chores around the house, because she couldn't put down my book.

If you're looking for lots of philosophy, and pages of description about the fauna and flora - keep looking. If you want non-stop action and quirky characters, give it a try.

While not for the faint of heart in regards to the killing sprees and sexual content, The Assassins Club was a gripping novel that was difficult to put down once you get started. Dixon Rice has a knack for written artistry that makes you feel as if you are a fly on the wall throughout the book.

Liking a Serial Killer? In real life it would be hard to cheer for a serial killer but in the book as you get to know Tyler Goode, you can't help but start to like him. Dixon Rice did an excellent job of c

Dixon Rice has a quiet writing style that contrasts sharply with the murder and mayhem in his story. The serenity of his narrative adds to the horror as he treats us to an inner perspective of the demented mind. As an added bonus, Mr. Rice delves into the thought processes of not one, but two psychopathic killers. Each driven by their unique logic. Each believing theirs is the way. Each achieving the same result. In either case the contagion spreads and the reader is left wondering whether they ...more

Amazing story!!! Loved it!!! A bit disappointed by the ending, because that was not what Ty wanted, but what can you expect from those 2? Ha!

So fast-moving, it takes your breath away. Also, an unexpected twist on the final page. What more could you ask for?

Tyler Goode was just bartending, minding his own business in the flatlands of Montana. He served beer, broke up the occasional brawl, and attended classes at the local community college. He was ruggedly handsome and popular with the local ladies, so when he was attacked after hours by a brute of a man who Tyler had thrown out of the bar the night before, Tyler was ill-prepared for what came next.
Acting in self-defense and in a fight for his life, Tyler got in a lucky blow. With the man lying dea

Assassins Club by Dixon Rice

I picked this book up because I was intrigued by the description and thought I'd give it a try. I haven't read many suspense/thrillers in recent years partly because I haven't been able to find an author who held my attention in this genre. Dixon Rice has brought me back and made me remember the early John Sandford years and books like Rules of Prey. His writing flows smoothly even amid the murder and chaos. Scenes are seamlessly woven together and the separate storie

This is a suspenseful thriller that is well written. It doesn’t leave loose ends and makes the reader wonder what will happen next. The threads in the plot intertwine with nonstop entertainment.
The author takes us with his main character as he moves to Montana after his family is killed in a hit-and-run accident, and the unfortunate incidents afterwards. The description of the town in Montana and landmark places like Moose’s Saloon is top notch.
The serial killer in this fiction has his flaws,

Sometimes I’ve read books that, at the end I was left thinking, “Well, there’s a portion of my life that was wasted, and I’m never going to get it back.” With The Assassins Club, I’m happy to say this was not the case. I found myself always wanting to read more. I got so engrossed in it, I didn’t recognize the passage of time.

Dixon’s creative use of metaphors alone was worth the purchase. This can’t-put-down novel made me laugh out loud at times, and tear up a bit at other times. Simply put, fr
Oct 29, 2013 Mike rated it really liked it
A neatly constructed and well-written mixture of murder and mayhem in Montana. Not forgetting the west-coast walkabout of wickedness that intersperses it. The characters are not deeply delved into but the plot hurries the whole thing along in a very agreeable manner. I won't say you can't put this book down, but it's relatively easy to pick up again and continue. Won't win any literary prizes, but who wants to think too much on the train, plane or beach where it helps pass the time admirably? No ...more

My favorite genre is thriller novels, and this one did not disappoint. I am generally critical of all the books I read, but I found few faults with this one. Must admit, once I started reading, it captivated me. I found myself saying "just one more chapter" and then reading several more. The book alternates point of view each chapter which I liked. I found some of the chapters shorter than I would have liked, but it left a lot of the suspense that made the book good. I look forward to reading mo ...more

This book was a fun romp sighted in Montana near Glacier National Park. It has just enough sex without being erotic while carrying the action along smartly. It was marred by the 8 errors I found which I consider to be excessive. The author can get the errata from me at amacd55 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Dixon has captured the raw and tumble men of rural Montana in a hard fisted thriller. Be sure and put it on your list of must reads.
