What an absolute thrill. The mystery left me unable to guess what would happen next, and the prose was both delightful and haunting. Oliver F Chase created a troubling beauty, even in the desert landscape, and the stars were as bright as the storyline. A great read for fans of detective fiction, suspenseful mystery, and thrillers.

Modern Noir Mystery Thriller

Those in the mood for an armchair adventure won't be able to put this one down. Oliver Chase's mystery thriller, "Marsh Island" is a page-turner. Chase writes with a refreshing style in the genre of Sanford and Burke.

Former Army Ranger and Gulf War veteran, Phillip Pfeiffer makes his living as a private investigator. His duties amount to delivering proof to angry wives interested in catching cheating husbands. That is, until he's hired by Bernice Trimble. She wants to

Marsh Island is a thriller to its core. It’s twists and turns kept me reading, searching for answers. The storyline kept me turning to the next page, only to become more determined to find the answer. Page after page, Mr. Oliver had my heart racing, and my adrenaline coursing though my body, watching and waiting to see what came next.

And I’m still waiting…

This book is the first of the Hirebomber Series, and is bookended by our antagonists, but the book proper is solely the realm of our private e

While I was a little confused during the introductory chapters, I soon became engrossed in this story and could barely put it down. The main character is very easy to relate to, although at times he is a bit frustrating. I found myself mentally shouting at him, warning him not to trust people and not to be so gullible. Chase only gives a few moments of the villain's point of view, but they are extremely intriguing.

I was a bit turned off by the level of violence in the opening chapters, but that

An intriguing story. Marsh Island started off in a familiar and exotic south Louisiana swamp, with tough characters and surrounded by mystery. The almost too old Private Detective gives a very believable search and chase of a character who may or may not be alive, to exotic places around the world, with limited but unfolding success, and close calls with death. As it seemed he was closing in on the unsavory character that may be the purpose of his search, we come to a break, and now must wait ea ...more

Never tell a hormone-infused college kid that he cheated on a take-home exam. That’s what happened to Oliver F. Chase at a small college in central Florida. The essay was pretty innocuous and easy but his grades before were dismal. The fix was in, or so believed the professor. Oliver was promptly awarded a D and given a stern warning with no appeal. The next semester, he chose the same professor, ...more
