REVIEW OF PIECES BY AMOS LASSEN
“Pieces” is completely different than “Picker”. The character who stands at the center is Lyman Blackmore ... his world is one of eccentric characters and is filled with suspense, crime and the out-of-the-ordinary. This is a read that keeps you guessing as you navigate its twists and turns. The characters themselves are reflections of the diversity of San Francisco. While I am not much of a mystery reader, I had a lot of fun reading this.”

Chad Schimke's book 'Pieces' is a masterpiece of intrigue, suspense and magical spells...and walks you right into the everyday paranormal - and he shows how silently ubiquitous it can be at every turn. Based in the city I am from, San Francisco, reading this book took me back to this city rich in stories and history. The author knows San Francisco inside and out and so, combined with such well-developed characters, complete with a witch and much more, made for such compelling reading.. that I co ...more

REVIEW OF PIECES BY AMOS LASSEN
“Inter-Connected Character Vignettes by Amos Lassen. “Pieces” is completely different than “Picker”. It is a paranormal mystery composed of inter-connected character vignettes and set in San Francisco and takes place from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. The character who stands at the center is Lyman Blackmore, a casino owner who is lucky enough to be quite wealthy. His world is one of eccentric characters and is filled with suspense, crime and the out-of-the-ordinary. T

PIECES - I thoroughly enjoyed how this novel used paranormal witches and demons to explore multi-cultural people and neighborhoods. There is a little bit of everything here and a lot to like. If you like a San Francisco story like Tales of the City this is one for you.

This is a good paranormal story with a surprise at the end. I like all of the different characters and San Francisco references. Fun, what a good time!

ROY'S REVIEW

This book has received a sprinkling of five-star reviews on Amazon. I’m afraid I’m not going to keep the sequence going. Maybe I just never got onto the author’s wavelength - I’m not sure - but that is the writer’s job. Engage the reader. I was never really engaged.

Whoever tagged the book ‘mystery’ and ‘paranormal’ has some explaining to do. We start with a coven right enough, in some woods above San Francisco. Lyman Blackmore pledges future profits from his casino to the Moonglow Fe

Pieces - Chad Schimke

Worlds collide in this colourful and gripping paranormal adventure. Mammon, in all its vulgarity and rampant materialism clash with dark spirits, witchcraft and metaphysics.

A handsome playboy gambler, newly married to Monroe-style buxom blonde, transmogrifies throughout this roller-coaster of a tale. The author develops his characters skilfully as the action progresses. A plethora of supporting characters backlight an artist, an actor,a writer and a thief. Darkness pursues t
