Another Great Review for Cooper’s Daughter

Cooper's Daughter Cover“Cooper’s Daughter: A Rick Crane Noir,” continues to have a great launch.

The book has been ranked in the top 100 in private eye thrillers on Amazon throughout the debut weekend. People are obviously buying the book. And, based upon the reviews, liking it.

Reviews are important. Even if they’re just two or three sentences. They help move the book up in ranking almost as much as sales. So if you’ve bought the book, please take a few minutes to write a quick review (good or bad).

Here’s the latest Amazon review. I took special note of the second graph, talking about things better left unsaid. This was something that Dusty Sang over at Stay Thirsty walked me through in the early edits. His advice and guidance made “Cooper’s Daughter” a better book. Here’s the review:

I have so many books on my kindle that I haven’t read past the first chapter. This book grabbed me right away and thrust me into a world I did not know. I definitely had to look up some things. A specific Jimmy Hendrix reference. OTB. Grand national.

Incredibly engaging and powerfully worded. I love how the author leave things to our imagination sometimes but spells out what we need to know for the flavor of the scenes.

Waiting eagerly for Crane’s next Job.

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is the classic, anti-hero private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, running errands and fixing problems for Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses. But readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in the widely acclaimed series, is a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, an up-and-coming boxer and the nephew of Rick's underworld boss. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Fate" is due out in August 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
