Wow, a vicious, hardened criminal will stop at nothing to get any diamonds he knows of as his last job. Anyone helping him is dead after the job is done. He leads a bloody path everywhere he goes, and has been at it for five years. Can he be caught? How many more victims will there be?

And this is also a ghost story! I have never read a book that had both of those genres until now. And this ghost actually plays a major role in the story.

What a great book it was! The beginning was a little slow

I loved this wonderfully written story of passion and crime, murder and intrigue. My eyes danced , raced across the pages to discover the next move in the game that is played by Marco and his pawns, with Phil and Ernie and the crew of blue fast on his trail.

From the onset we are taken on a ride by mysterious and "nasty" Marco- His greed and sense of mastery of crime let us know early in, this aloof character will not be an easy catch. The world turns upside-down across borders as we become entan

Wow what a great book and an author I knew nothing about- I was asked to review Diamond Run by

This is the author's second novel, the first was Bravo's Veil which I am just about to read.

I was totally engrossed in the book, and ideal as the weather at the weekend was so wet for June, so I snuggled up and started this action packed story. There is murder, mystery, a bit of spookiness and some passion thrown into the mix.

As the rain fell I was lost in this strange world, with Sue

I received a PDF copy of this book for free via LibraryThing Early Reviewer program. I found this book hard to follow at first, but as I got further into it the story line became clearer. However, it does combine a combination of genres, including thriller, paranormal, romance, and mystery. At times it can seem that there is too much or too many genres in one story, but it does all come together in the end.
One thing I would recommend, is that the Author's Note be in the front of the book, and n

This book was very entertaining once it really got started. The first couple chapters it was hard to get into, but I promise it gets better. I loved how the author mixed up the real world with the supernatural world, but not enough that it will turn off the reader of the crime/suspense genre. It moved at a very steady pace. I also enjoyed how it tied up everything so neatly in the end. I do look forward to seeing how Mr. Croucher develops his character of Off. Mahood as time progresses. He is of ...more

Diamond Run by Michael Coucher
This book was a true action-oriented novel. The dialog flowed into the content of the book as the reader imagined the voices speaking the words. The plot was rich with sound based on the words in the story. The reader experienced the action in the story as if they were in the same space as the characters. The descriptions in the book were vivid and real enabling the reader to see into the world of the character. I received an ARC. I really loved the book and would

A fantastic book! I loved the gritty detail that the main character Phil provides as an organized crime investigator in the late '70's and the hunt for the bad guys will have you unable to put the book down. The paranormal side story was a unique twist that hooked me in even further! I definitely plan to read other works by this author.
