Dressed for a Kill - One of the best books I’ve ever read!
The characters are well developed in this suspense thriller of rape, murder, court trials, and mystery. This may be Brian Bianco’s first novel, but he has successfully woven a thriller that grabs the reader and does not let go until the end. The plot kept me guessing right up to the last page. Dressed for a Kill is a full-throttle page-turner! There were so many twists, turns and unexpected developments throughout the entire book that I c

I really liked this book and the characters portrayed between the pages. The characters are well developed and stand out in my opinion, from Miles, the main character down to those who played minor roles. Though there are many quality characters in this book, I personally liked the character Shawn O'Shea, the owner of the bar that Bruno Carboni frequents. Bruno himself is a very interesting character. An ex-cop turned private investigator who is angry at the world if not those in his personal li ...more

This was a great read, I stayed up late to finish it. There are many different twists through out the story. It was interesting and entertaining, the characters drew you in because they were realistic and believable. They were human. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different.

Feb 22, 2011 Peter rated it it was ok
Dressed for a Kill, Brian Bianco's first novel, is a suspense / thriller with all the elements: a light read but complex storyline, fast pace, plot twists, and a slick cover. Yet while interesting and enjoyable in places, this is not as rewarding a read as it could be.

The surprise acquittal of two accused lowlifes for a grisly rape and murder outrages a small Idaho town. But investigative reporter Miles Fischer, who's spent three weeks in the boonies covering the trial, is already back in Chica

There was a good story line and if held my interest for the most part. I wouldn't call this a thriller but a good mystery.
May 19, 2012 Emily rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Dressed for a Kill was just the type of book I normally go for and whilst I really enjoyed the story, the characters really drew you in throughout the story, I found the poor editing really affected my enjoyment of the book. The differing use of character names in the narrative had me puzzled on a number of occasions. If the author is planning to self-publish his next book, it would be worth employing an editor to avoid this in the future.

If it hadn't been for the editing, I would have rated the

I just finished reading Dressed for a Kill by Brian Bianco (my first one of his). This book starts off fast and keeps going throughout the entire book. I thought I had it figured out around the middle of the book then...BAM! he threw a curve I wasn't expecting!! I was kept guessing to the very end of the book. I highly recommend this book for those who like mystery novels. I can hardly wait for his next book to come out. A fan for sure!!!! I know it took me longer than usual to read but that is ...more

I enjoyed Dressed for a Kill as a fast paced mystery/thriller. The characters were like "regular joes" in their field of work, I felt like I really knew them. The plots twists and turns and keeps the reader guessing as to what will happen next or be discovered. I thought I had it figured out, but no! I found it to be a very good read. I really enjoyed it and am waiting for his next book.

Before I tell you a little something about me, I want to tell you about my book, Dressed for a Kill, first.

I worked hard on writing this book, creating characters that are as real as you and I, that you can easily relate to and like as I take you on a journey into their lives and why the things that happened, happened, Some of the traits portrayed by the characters are some of those that we find i
