“I am hooked” on Rick Crane
September 10, 2015 Leave a comment
Another 5-star review (not from my mother) for “Mary’s Fate,” the third installment in my Rick Crane Noir Series from Stay Thirsty Press.
So far, “MARY’S FATE” is the best of Mr Yoste’s, “Rick Crane Noir” series. Having read and enjoyed all three, I am hooked and looking forward to the next offering. The story is fast paced and an easy read. The plot is well organized and keeps your interest. Too bad my favorite character was killed-off in the previous book.
This series will be very interesting as it more fully develops. As an aside, I can’t help but wonder if Mr Yoste is inching his lead character, “Rick Crane” from the dark and sleazy pages of a noir into a novelette. What do you think?
I’m not sure to think, considering they spelled my name wrong. But it was 5 stars, what am I complaining about.
If you’re not familiar with the series, here’s the jacket copy:
Legendary Upstate New York private eye Rick Crane returns in MARY’S FATE, the third book in Mark Yost’s acclaimed noir thriller series. Crane, an old-school fixer, is drawn into a turf war of bikers and drugs in this non-stop story of revenge and murder. At the center of Crane’s universe is mob boss, Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., and his iron-fisted control of his territory; a control that spills over into unspeakable violence that forever changes the fate of Mary Rooney, Rick Crane’s true love. Yost’s taut, well-told story grabs the reader right from the start in true noir fashion and doesn’t let go through all the twists and turns that Rick Crane fans have come to expect.
