*of pages and *pages and I do love Richard Montanari and would list him amongst my favourite authors I don t think this is his best book by a long mile It started out uite good the Electromyography for Experimentalists end was crazy The relationship between Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano isndearing and Forgetful of Their Sex: Female Sanctity and Society, ca. 500-1100 entertaining their interaction can be uite witty The story is about bodies that turn up at old crime scenes and the victims have all been suspects in the original crimes So the simple answer would be a vigilante at work redressing injustices NO it was complex than that this is a fictional crime thriller after all and the author deemed it necessary to make the motive way off the wall than necessary It was good as I said up to a point but I feel the plot was well and truly lost towards thend The usual red herrings kippers like cos they stunk and you knew you were being conned as you read them I really think these writers need to get back to basics and put a little realism into their plots I am on the verge of giving up on this genre if this keeps up It s not just Montanari of late I have become increasingly disillusioned in several authors Jessica Balzano and Kevin Byrne are back an on the hunt two killers The first one is targeting young women as they leave their Alcoholics Anonymous meeting But then they find a mutilated body Upon further inspections they learn that there was an old murder case in the same location Then bodies start turning up heads wrapped in paper and a small tattoo on a finger But the catch is that the bodies are left in old murder scene locations that these people had a connection to It seems someone has been going through the old case files and staging the murders It looks like someone on the police force has become a vigilanteI really liked this story There were a lot of twists and turns and I didn t xpect the killer until the reveal Jessica and Kevin work well together I njoyed following along as they put the pieces of the puzzle slowly togetherMy only complaint is that the book is just over 500 pages long Long books don t togetherMy only complaint is that the book is just over 500 pages long Long books don t me if they keep me Runaway Wedding engrossed in the story Unfortunately there were parts that started to drag or felt like things were just thrown into the story to take up pagesBeyond that this is my first Balzano and Byrne story I reallynjoyed it and would like to read the other books in the series to see what I have missedI received The Echo Man from Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for free This has in no way.

Influenced my opinion of this book The book Echo Man is over 1100 pages in length something that I found to be about five hundred pages too long A lot could have been cut out or done with brevity Long books work only if the topic continues to volve with xcitement and character This book seemed to drag on to meThe good thing about the book is the attention to detail Mr Montanari takes pages to describe simple meThe good thing about the book is the attention to detail Mr Montanari takes pages to describe simple in xtreme detail leaving little room for the imagination He did manage to keep the identity of the killer a secret till close to the nd usually I have it figured out by the middle of a book but this time it took longer which is a sign of xperienced weaving The book is about a duo of detectives who are trying to solve a rash of killers where the victim s head is wrapped in paper and a small tattoo is place on their finger The killer is making a statement creating a symphony to be revealed towards the nd of the book It comes to a head on HalloweenI was given an advance copy of this book from Netgallery in return for writing a review The review does not have to be a good one but needs to be based on the ntire book There were definitely parts to the book that I Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One enjoyed investigating the crime scenes was one of themI would give this book a B due mostly to thexcessive length and it s snails pace If you want to settle in with a book say during a three day snow storm I would recommend this one After writing an Xenophon And His World (Historia Einzelschriften) essay about Music compositions and Composers it seems appropiate to write a review on Richard Montanari s latest novel The Echo Man If you are a fan of Richard s novels then you know it follows two main detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano and their force of policemen and women The novel has two main storylines running through it the first one less important than the main murder case is the AA Killer a guy who preys on young women at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and the second one a murder that first started in 1990 when a violinist was found in the home of her tutor who had been murdered Sentenced to a insane aslyum the girl stayed till just recently when she was released now somebody is killing in the samexact fashion however this time the murders are related to a fire that caused a girl by the name of Alexandra Chang to die One by one Geography of the Gaze: Urban and Rural Vision in Early Modern Europe everyone associated with her murder and the day she died is being killed in a way that reminded meerily of the Dexter Killings see the books by Jeff Lindsey As the deaths become and it seems that someone has taken also to recreating Philadelphia s unsolved crimes Is this an inside job someone who has access to the files and been on the fo.

Rce for a long time Be Prepared for a shocking twist
*as we see *we see of our regular and long running characters finding themselve in handcuffs and behind bars All this and in another relentless and suspensful fast paced thriller from Richard Montanari i did njoy reading most of this but just lost interest by the time of the reveal Started brilliantly but bogged down horribly with unnecessary complication and some short cut characterisation that I actively dislikedThe opening chapter promises much with two believable female cops making the most of a sting operation Sadly that potential is frittered away
in the rest of the story one is sidelined ntirely and the otherthe rest of the story one is sidelined ntirely and the other is saddled with the usual maternal baggageSimilarly another intriguing female character is soon relegated to the role of victim despite the opportunity to present her as a gritty survivorThat all would ve been bearable if the plot had held up its initial momentum but instead it sprawls and sags until I found myself plodding to the unremarkable Forgetful of Their Sex ending just to find out actually whodunitSo five stars at the stars two stars at thend510 The Echo Man is the fifth in author Richard Montanari s BalzanoByrne series of crime mysteryThrillers set in Philadelphia Byrne the grizzled old vet and Balzano a detective with limited time in homicide partner together perfectly The fifth book in this series was an Naturally Naughty Wicked Willing enjoyable read I ve really had a ball reading all five of author Montanari s Philly series to date The author knowsvery nook and cranny of this city His protagonist team of Jessica to date The author knows F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby every nook and cranny of this city His protagonist team of Jessica and Kevin Bynre are surperbl The thing with serial killer stories is that with shows like Criminal minds the source of ideas should by now be depleted and yet we get uite a few of the serial killer books published It does take jessica Balzano and her partner Kevin Byrne uite some time before they realize the context of their killers desire and it all goes back to Byrne s first case for the homicide suad While the book is fairly well written the whole context and set up for this serial killer was in personal opinion somewhat of a stretch it left me feeling a bit cheated and feeling cheap simply because of the plot and solution If the previous book I read left me not convinced about this series this book was no improvement This series feels like a decent try in this genre but is has no fan with me I have read better andntertaining versions of good serial killer books This one left a lot to be desired A complex Walled (The Line, elaborate thriller from Montanari I dxpect nothing less A fantastically gritty read with an abundance of shocks to keep you guessing throughout.
