'Caribbean Moon' pulled me in from the start. I couldn't put it down. Even though I had a clue as to who the 'bad' guy was, it was still quite an adventure. The storyline was well written and very thrilling. If you don't like gruesome details, this book probably isn't for you. But for me, it was part of the story and added to the story as a whole. The characters were great. Manny is a great lead and an even better detective. Sophie is a spitfire. I loved her go-get-em attitude. I loved the added ...more

Walking in the footsteps of a psychopathic killer, the reader is soon mesmerized and enthralled with the workings of Robert Peppercorn’s, aka Eli Jenkins mind as he travels from one victim to another. Diagnosed with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Robert patiently waited, playing an Oscar deserving role, until the doctors of the Lansing, Michigan mental hospital were sure they had booked a rare success and he was cured.
Manfred Robert Williams is a detective in the Lansing Police Department.

It was very high on Amazon, but I didn't care for it much. My biggest complaint was that they heroes just reacted to the villain in almost all cases. By that I mean they didn't use any internal strengths to overcome obstacles and force the flow events in a direction they wanted, or at least interrupt the flow the villain had planned. I like stories where the heroes struggle and overcome. In this book they were basically puppets in the hands of the villain.

In the beginning I was also a little cre

Cruising murder

I gave this book high marks as it hooked and reeled me in from the beginning. Characters were well developed and an emotional attachment unique to each of them was formed. Parts of the story were a little too graphic for my gentle mind. If you like NCIS and other police-based stories, this book will not disappoint you.

I loved it. It was a fast moving who done it with some very interesting people. I was amazed at the number of characters in this book that had to be kept track of...and it was done with a certain degree of elegance and style.

Loved the story. This is my first time reading one of his books...I don't think it will be the last time I check his work out

it seems like the plot could be interesting, but the writing style seems immature.

4 and 1 / 2 stars

This book starts out a little slow – and confusing. I can only assume that the author did this because the book is the first in a series and he wanted to properly introduce his characters. However, if the reader sticks with it, it gets much more exciting and action-packed.

We meet Manny Williams and his wife Louise as they embark on a Caribbean cruise on the Ocean Duchess along with several other members of the Lansing (Michigan) Police Department. Louise is awaiting results of
