First of all, I decided to read this book because of its Pacific Northwest setting. I am a native-born Washingtonian, and I loved the fact that the author spoke of places I know--Seattle, Pike Place Market, Mount Rainier, and more. And I could relate immediately to all the boating in the Puget Sound--I grew up in Washington state (and still live here), and I understand and appreciate waterfront living.

Reviewing this book has proven to be extremely difficult. The profanity and blatant sexual ter

Charismatic politician Nick Season is running for Washington State Attorney General. He's also a psychotic narcissist tying up loose ends by murdering a customs agent, framing his girlfriend for smuggling and attempting to have her killed in prison. Released from prison, Corey Logan knows the truth about Nick Season but to protect her 15 year old son Billy, keeps quiet until she falls in love with her evaluating psychiatrist, Dr Abe Stein. Mild mannered, non violent Abe is a thinker, not any kin ...more

If you can judge a book by its antagonist, then this one is a doozy. A smooth-talking, handsome politician who feels nothing but contempt for the decent (and not so decent) folks he manipulates on a daily basis. His con leads to the governor's mansion, and beyond, and he will stop at nothing to get there. The protagonist? A well-meaning psychiatrist who burns holes in his sports coat with his pipe and knocks the mirrors off parked cars when he tries to drive. Who has an undistinguished career do ...more

Have you ever been so engrossed by a book' s story that you could not put it down? Well, that's exactly what happened to me with Inside Passage. It was a rainy weekend and I picked up the book on Saturday. I became so absorbed and consumed by the story and the writing, that I finished it in 2 sittings. It would have been 1 day, but unfortunately papers needed grading ;-) I cannot wait for books 2 & 3! Thank you Mr. Weissbourd for writing such a captivating story. I almost felt like I was in the ...more

I just finished Inside Passage and I highly recommend it. I don't remember a thriller that kept me going like this one since the days of John D. MacDonald writing about Travis McGee. The unlikely heroine and hero of this novel are breathtaking, the writing top-notch, and the plot gripping. Hoping for more from this author.

Note: I had the opportunity to read an ARC ebook version and that is the basis for my review.

Inside Passage by Burt Weissbourd is a 2013 Rare Bird Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Corey Logan has just been released from prison and wants nothing more than to avoid the man that set her up and to be with her son, Billy. She has to check in with a therapist as a condition of her release. After meeting Abe, she doesn't feel like this soft spoken, seemingly out of touch man would be the best fit for her. After shopping around some more, sh

This was a tough one. On the one hand it made me very interested in the geographical area described in the book; I also love sailing, so the setup was ideal. On the other, however, the characters and particularly their psychological development was so unrealistic that I just couldn't forget that they were make-believe. If you can't relate to the characters on any level you don't care what happens to them, it's all the same. Some just suddenly realized things on an inner level, but at the same ti ...more

Inside Passage is a tense, exciting thriller, with wonderfully-developed characters, both hero and villian, who grab attention and hold until the end. The descriptions of the American northwest provide a perfect backdrop for the story that unfolds. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to stay up late at night turning page after page.

Honestly, I got about 1/3 of the way through this book. The writing style is not a fit for me, and I found it very difficult to push through. Zero interest in the story or the characters, and if it didn’t draw me in by 1/3 of the way through, it never will.

I love sinking my teeth into an engrossing thriller and I am pleased Burt Weissbourd delivered with his riveting page turner Inside Passage.

From the first page Inside Passage had me hooked! I could not put this book down and gobbled it up in a matter of hours. I will confess – half way through, I was completely invested in Corey Logan’s plight I had to restrain myself from cheating by reading the last few pages. I exercised my willpower and refrained, it was worth every page turned, the journey

This book caught my attention after the first 20 pages and I was so engaged that I read it all in one day! The book begins with Corey Logan getting out of jail for something she didn't do. Her son, Billy, is in foster care and his father is dead. Corey will do anything to get Billy back but she has one big obstacle to cross...Nick Season.

Nick Season is the reason Corey is in jail. He's the reason Billy's father is dead. However, no one knows the real Nick Season. They only know the high powered

Corey Logan knows Nick Season is why she was in prison. She knows that his charming smile and patience deceive all but her. And despite losing two years of her life to him, she just wants to get to know her son and stay out of Nick Season's path forever.

Nick Season is a political animal. He is patient, kind, and willing to compromise. And he always gets what he wants. Spring-boarding off a stint in LAPD and with his eyes on the national stage, Nick Season needs first to get in the state Attorney

I worked the book party that Burt Weissbourd's brother threw at his house in Cambridge. Sat in the back and wondered if it would be inappropriate to help myself to the buffet, listened to Burt give away major plot elements as an incentive for his family and friends to buy as many copies as they could carry. At the end, he and his wife bought one more, signed it, and gave it to me - "If you like it tell your friends at the bookstore." And that's how come I read a thriller set in the Pacific North ...more

I loved this book! It is a smart, character-driven thriller. Once I started reading, I found it hard to put down.

Weissbourd is a great story teller. I loved the book so much that I went to his reading from Inside Passage at the Corner Bookstore in NYC to ask him to sign my book. I was also interested in knowing about the sequel (this is the first novel in the Corey Logan triology).

I recommend Inside Passage to readers who love thrillers with strong, smart characters. It is a must read. You will

Outstanding book! I actually received an advanced copy of this book and was a bit hesitant as I had never heard of the author before. Within 10 pages I was hooked and it stayed extremely strong throughout. I haven't rated many books a full 5 stars in my list, but I really feel this one deserves all five. The pace of the story was excellent. Characters were well developed and believable. I will be on the lookout for more books by Mr. Weissbourd.
