Good Job, Mr. Yost

That’s the word from the latest review of “Cooper’s Daughter: A Rick Crane Noir,” now available on Amazon.

It’s the 14th 5-Star Review the book has received. Here’s what the reviewer had to say:

Cooper’s Daughter (A Rick Crane Noir) was an interesting read for me. I grew up in this region of Upstate New York, so I can vividly picture many of the places that are described in this story. I read a few pages about a week ago and had to stop due to a project for work. Today, I picked it up again and I found myself so intrigued that I read it through in one sitting. I particularly liked the characters of Rick Crane, Mary Walsh Rooney and Gene Sobeleski. This is a relatively short book and it is a good choice for when you have limited time to read. I look forward to reading more installments from Rick Crane. Good job, Mr. Yost.

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."
