Received copy of MURDER MISDIRECTED on 6-16-12. Started reading 6-17-12. I am on page 30 and I like this book already. A free giveaway! Thank you Mr. MacRae. Thank you Goodreads.

Completed this enjoyable read on 6-18-12. This book is well written in a good style. The mystery is solved at the end of the book. The author has employed the tools of good writing. Thank you, sir.
Murder Misdirected by Andrew MacRae is a brilliant San Francisco Noir mystery. I say brilliant because I never thought I would like an expert pick pocket. I will say that I really did like him but he was pick pocket. I will say that I really like him but he was pick pocket.

Set in San Francisco, with a wonderful noirish feel. An unlikely sleuth and a likeable cast of characters add to this book's charm and kept me turning the pages. Wonderful debut novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed Andy's novel, Murder Misdirected. The action kept me reading the book long past my bedtime. Enjoyable, well written book!
This inaugural venture into novel length murder mystery fiction captivated me with its blend of old and new !
The pick-pocket hero kept me turning pages in this suspenseful mystery.
looking for the next one.

The Kid, the protagonist of Murder Misdirected, practices the classical dip to lift wallets. A pickpocket may seem an unlikely hero for a murder mystery, but The Kid has a tender heart, established early in the book when he rescues a damsel in distress. The Kid's occupation, the thinly disguised San Francisco setting, and the exotic dancer love interest all add a touch of noir to Murder Miscalculated. I loved The Pink Poodle, the dive where many scenes occur. In the end, the book contained some...more

A fun fast-paced read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although I did figure out whodunit, I had to wait for the story to unfold to find out how. I imagined the book as a movie on TV. That would be really fun with all the scenes around the city.
Awesome, quick read. If I have been off I would have read it in a few hours. Some parts were easy to figure out, but had some wonderful humor. Made me wish there was more humor, more pages. These characters would make a nice series.

Charming and engrossing noire mystery set in San Francisco. Excellent background information, endearing characters with depth and growth, plot twists, squirrelly action, tension, and surprises. I loved it.
This was a decent mystery and had a noir feel to it. I found myself hoping that things would work out for him.
Debut novel by Andrew MacRae is a hit - especially for the well thought characters. He's an author to watch!
Bonnie Malouf
Loved this first novel mystery. An easy read, with just the right amount of humor and suspense.
George Pritchard
