I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway. The description sounded interesting so thought I would give this author a try and hope to win. I was one of the lucky ones. I started reading this book and it started out with a beginning I did not expect and almost in a way shocking to me. It wasn't so much what the character was doing but his joy in doing it. I actually put the book down and walked away for a couple days. I hate giving up on a book so picked it back up and started were I left of ...more

I received a review copy of No Rest for the Wicked in PDF form.

From the moment I started reading, the words drew me into the dark world of an ex-convict named Nico. I wondered who was watching him, and soon, theories formed as the body count and tension grew higher.

Vincent's ability to capture characters, painting them with different words and phrases to describe them is brilliant. In some ways, he reminded me of Stephen King - only grittier. His words engaged me with vicious intensity.

It's been weeks since the last I read this, and I can still picture this story in my head. Usually that's a good thing. Not this time.

First, the writing is okay. I won't say it's bad, but it certainly leaves for improvement. The story was bland and predictable. It had a great concept, but had no real build up for me. Granted, you can say crime novels aren't usually my cup of tea. However, if you want me to be invested and actually care about the characters, you have to pull me in the first fifte

For someone that is new on the scene as an author, Mr. Alcaras does it like a veteran. The story was fast paced and as I read, I wanted more. As a long time reader I found the plot to be original, not a recycled version of another text. I particularly liked the way he described the actions of the characters. He picked up on little nuances that are often overlooked by other authors. This book was definitely a thrill ride and I can hardly wait until I can read more by Mr. Alcaras.

From start to finish No Rest grabbed me, pulled me in and never let go. I got so caught up in the story that I read it in one sitting. I am excited to read more from this author.

Vincent writes a darker shade of fiction, not afraid to delve into the grey area of human existence and morality.
Always known for being an observer of the human condition, Vincent expanded this understanding from the what, into the how and why of human nature by obtaining a degree in psychology from SUNY Buffalo. After deciding he wanted to be an author, Vincent used that keen insight to develop
