Don't waste your time. Must have written his own reviews. Slow and boring. Better reads elsewhere. Not for me .

Not a bad book

This story did keep me intrigued for the most part. I think the plot was quite brilliant, perhaps the best thing about the book. However I didn't think that the storyline flowed seamlessly together as it was kind of patchy sometimes. I must say though that the be author is pretty darn good at the romance scenes which is a huge plus in any story. To my mind the writing was not consistently good nor consistently bad - quite good at times and a bit tedious at others. The thing however

With Murder in Palm Beach, Bob Brink has created a crime novel that could easily rival the likes of John Grisham and Richard Montanari. On the whole it is a story or redemption, but redemption that does not come easy. First arrested and charged for a crime you are insistent you didn't commit; then convicted of the crime and sentenced to decades behind bars; then losing the love of your life whilst serving time under a barbaric prison regime. Is this the price Mitt Hecher had to pay for rubbing u ...more

What I loved about Murder in Palm Beach by Bob Brink, was that it took me back to the golden age of detective fiction. The story was gripping from start to finish, centered around a classic whodunit - did the man, Hecher, sentenced to over 25 years in prison, murder Roger Kriger? Or was he thrown under the bus by a politically hungry district attorney, hoping to boost his career by nailing an easy conviction for the brutal shooting of the restaurateur. One thing is sure, there are certainly more ...more

Bob Brink the author of Murder in Palm Beach is a former newspaper journalist and when you know it you can see it. There is a clear knowledge of the system in which our developing protagonist, Hecher, is struggling through. When reading through the description of the local area you get a real authentic flavor and a feel for the lives these characters are living, from the bright shiny world of Palm Beach more people probably know about to the dark, gritty underworld you may not have expected.

A most excellent read. I could not put it down! A real page turner! I did not think I would be able to get into the book, but it quickly absorbed me especially when Diana became part of the tale. The Justice (?) System takes a well-deserved beating.
