Bark (2 Dumb 2 Read Blurbs)
Conjesero is about a homicide detective whose latest case involves a murderous monster of the non-human kind. Kevin is at the top of his career, having just caught a murdering rapist, when his friend is mauled by something he claims resembles a werewolf. This isn’t just some large man in need of a haircut and shave, says his friend, it was a genuine monster.

And he’s not lying.

This is a monster/police procedural thriller that has a high death count and a monster who isn’t afraid to kill children

This was a great supernatural crime thriller. It had heart, great characters, and was really exciting. I really liked the San Francisco homicide detective Kevin Russel. It was fun spending time with him as he tried to track down the monster Conjesero. It was awesome seeing him investigate the case. I really got a feel for what his life was like as a homicide detective. There were a lot of characters in this book and they all felt real and added a lot to the story. The college student was a great ...more

I received an E copy of Conjesero from the author in exchange for an honest review, I am really surprised that more people have not read and or reviewed this book as of yet, Mr. Alves seems to have put a lot into this storyline and I feel that it all ties together very well.

Detective Kevin Russell has just arrested the Hail Mary rapist and by doing so stopped a string of serial killings that were beginning to look to go unsolved, right in the middle of this his best friend Paul Richardson is att

A college student, a high-school misfit, and a grandfather with strange tales to tell form one half of Conjesero’s tapestry. Meanwhile San Francisco homicide detective Kevin Russel and colleague Rita Tedesco, plus wounded friend and a beautiful romantic lead, follow a parallel tale. But it all comes together halfway through Carl Alves’ novel, with instant celebrity Kevin tackling images of werewolves, contemplating love, and insisting against all odds that he must protect and serve. The race is ...more

This is a thriller with a supernatural twist. I thought the books was enjoyable, with a good plot and some enjoyable characters. I enjoyed the concept of Conjesero, but wish that they had delved further into the character. The character itself was a fascinating idea, going beyond the traditional shapeshifter idea, and it was a good take on the theme of shapeshifting. I would have liked more background on Conjesero itself, how it came to be, and more details, it would have added a little more dim ...more

I was hooked from the first page. This is how I love a book to begin! The book is a quick paced murder/mystery/paranormal, and the characters are well fleshed out. It moved quickly and kept my attention well into the night. The one thing I would love to see added to this book, to give it 5 stars, is a more detailed explanation about how Conjesero came to be. Other than that, I can see Mr. Alves in Manny, :) Thank you for such an entertaining read!!

Truly horrifying. The horror builds from chapter to chapter. The cast of characters is mixed - police detective, a serial rapist, a doctor, a crime boss, a college student, an elderly man and a victim. Gruesome murders abound in detail. You can feel the fear building, but cannot put this book down. The plot is simple, but the execution is complex and holds you from the first page.
I highly recommend this to any lover of horror or very dark fantasy.

I read this novel through my Kindle Unlimited (KU) subscription.

Conjesero by Carl Alves is a supernatural murder mystery. In many murder mysteries, there is a victim and the reader interest is devoted to finding out the identity of the killer. In this novel, we know the killer who goes by many names that hide one identity, a mythical creature known as Conjesero. The creature is a shape shifter that exists in a world which generally doesn’t believe in such entities. Disproving this belief is the

Carl Alves is an engineer and he has constructed a terrific thriller in Conjesero. Detective Kevin Russel is a classic tough detective dealing with the gritty crime of San Francisco. Now after his closest friend is attacked he is discovering that the assailant cannot be easily classified; either as human or animal. What makes this book work is the quality of the writing. Many similar books are poorly constructed and littered by bad prose. This is a smooth read; you are engaged quickly and the en ...more

Supernatural Thriller
Well written police/detective story with all of the necessary components to make it interesting. But early on there is a hint of something less than normal. This extra component lingers in the background while many other interlocking stories are woven into a coherent thriller. It all comes together in the last half of the book with a suspense filled leadup to a thrilling climax. Lots of side stories to keep the book from being too one-dimensional.
Charlotte Gerber
Conjesero is a paranormal mystery/thriller that has plenty of twists and turns to keep readers guessing. I started out thinking that the murderer was one thing because of a sub-plot, and by the end of the book I found out that I had been wrong for most of the story. I became invested in the characters and worried for their safety until the end. It was a riveting story that was a real page-turner.

The characters are well developed, which made it all the more of an emotional rollercoaster ride. Wit

Received a free copy for honest review.

San Francisco homicide detective Kevin Russell is wrapping up a difficult case when his best friend is attacked one night. The assault is unusual to say the least, his friend Paul swears he has been attacked by a werewolf. Several vicious murders follow and the evidence left behind at the crime scenes suggests that a serial killer that defies logic is on the loose. Det. Russell is in a desperate race to stop this supernatural killer before he strikes again.
