    Hard fall was fun to read, with plenty of action, and enough of Blume' background to make him a real person with his own challenges. I'm a fan of Robert B Parker and John D McDonald before him. Hard Fall was shorter than their stories, and not as complex, but a good read. Will definitely enjoy more of Reade's work and also watch to see how he (?) grows. Ron Smith Anchorage Alaska

  • Believable and Vivid

    By LarryC-KC
    So believable, the characters are so vivid. Moves along very nicely. Many(too many) cops end up like this and that is what makes this so believable. Well researched and written, really appreciated it.

  • Read it at one sitting.

    By LovetheMoviews
    Thomas Blume is scarred. Trauma changes his life. He stumbles to find new direction and bring closure to his loss. His investigative skills keep him buoyed in a sea of disparity. An unusual client comes to know peace through Blume's Professional endeavors. Blume, in turn, regains strength and determination and purpose again. Looking forward to reading more in the series. The character is appealing. The story is good. The descriptive writing is engrossing.
