The First Review for ‘Mary’s Fate’ — 5 Stars

Mary's FateMary’s Fate,” my newest Rick Crane Noir, has been out just a few days and it already has its first 5-star review.

Downloaded “Mary’s Fate” just in time for a 2 hour flight….as was with the other books in this series, once I got started I could not put it down. The characters are well developed at this point, starting to feel like family. The conflicts throughout the book kept me engrossed throughout. by the time I landed, the book was done and I just wished I had the next book in the series for the flight back home.

This is a great review not just for the stars, but because it is the exact strategy of my publisher, Stay Thirsty Press. These books are marketed as quick reads, perfect for the airplane or the beach. And that’s exactly what this reader found.

As Hannibal Smith used to say, “I love it when a plan comes together.”

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."
