Palindrome: A Lamb and Lavagnino Mystery
The story was so engaging that I ended up staying up many hours past my bedtime in order to finish it; now I'm pumped ...more
I've had this book for sometime now, and finally got around to reading it. Man, what a creepy book! ( And I mean in a good way). This was actually one of the most truly scary books I've ever read. Talk about tense! I barreled through this thing while I kept looking over my shoulder the whole time. Who the hell is this E.Z. Rinsky? and how does he top this one? I don't know , but I plan on reading anything I can find by this author.I love it when I get blindsided by some new author lik ...more
I've wanted to read this book for a while, but my library didn’t own a copy, and I’m trying not to buy any books until I read more of the books I already own… But, I found an ebook through the digital library, so it’s all good now…
This was a mystery/suspense/thriller/(kinda)horror book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I just saw that the next book in the series would be published in the spring, which I will definitely read.
That’s my endorsement, so now; let’s get down to the nitty- gritty.
I rarely have a book that consumes me like this one did. And i mean consumes as literally as a book can. It took several days of productivity out of my life, yet was worth the time. I will look at this author's other work carefully and probably will succumb to try to read him again. I congratulate him on the skill, or magic perhaps that he possesses to write at this level. I would recommend this book to anyone who gets engaged in their reading beyond the norm and is ...more
Mystery and murder, filled with lots of suspense and unnerved thrills of sleuthing around. All my favorite things put together for an adventure filled read.
Here we have Private Investigator Frank Lamb, low on funds and practically jobless, embarrassingly just got done "persuading" an overpriced ice cream seller to accept a four dollar pay for a six dollar ice cream cup with his megnun gun tied to his waist. Yes, it had came down to h ...more
Overall, good book, fun mystery and I didn't guess the answer, but it totally make sense when it got there. I was concerned that an important question was going to be left unresolved (with an 'it's bad' excuse) but it was not. Instead cleverly just enough was given to make sense wi ...more
Frank Lamb, Palindrome’s infinitely self-deprecating hero, is a breath of fresh air. There’s a characteristic uncertainty in his observations that make it seem like you’re figuring out the my ...more
Overall, I would recommend this book for insane goof balls. This book is frankly hilarious, but also includes very serious moments. The book has a beginning, but also concludes strongly. Overall, you won't be sure if you're wiping your tears from sadness or utter hilarity when you read this book.
It's very nice to see Jewish writers finally hav ...more
Really enjoyed this read. Super creepy and I was happy that I was never able to put everything together and figure it all out. I'm honestly still not sure if it's a horror, mystery, or crime novel, or if it's all three. Good stuff. Going to go look for other books by this author right now. ...more
