Mercy has a new fan and it’s not often I reproduce reviews of my own books, but tell the truth I was impressed and delighted with this recent review.

Impressed because of the unusual style. Delighted… well, you can read why I felt that way. Here is the review:

Tony Parsons

2024, Florida Panhandle. Navarre Beach. Mercy Deal (15, daughter) met Conor O’Rourke (20, Georgia Tech U, Kappa Alpha frat boy).

Jack Hughes (Matt’s ex-father-in-law, Hughes Realty Inc.) made an urgent call.

What were Andy Messina & Joe Caruso up to?

I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.

An awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very professionally written crime thriller book. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large description list of unique characters, settings, facts etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great crime thriller movie, or better yet a mini-TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is an extremely easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free author; Hendry Publishing; BookFunnel; Amazon Digital Services LLC. Kindle Mobi; book
Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

Yes, in particular that penultimate paragraph delights me. Mr. Parsons obviously appreciates indie authors who invest in professional cover design, editing, and the craft of writing. Thank you!

    That is a great review, and very accurate! Couldn’t have said it better! If this is the same Tony Parsons, he was one of BC’s top Newscasters for many years! When he left to move to the States, we lost a great News Anchor. His comment on the grammar, spelling etc., was on the money. Nothing ruins a book faster for me than typos or spelling errors. Lol. This is a great book and I love the characters!

      Thanks, Bev. I have no idea if he’s the same Tony Parsons, but he certainly has a unique style of reviewing, whoever he is. Great credit to my editor, Sheryl Lee, for the quality of the grammar and lack of typos etc. However, I can’t be too modest as I invest in thorough self-editing before the manuscript goes off to her for a final polish.

      I think you have also read Mayhem, Book 2 in the series. Mobocracy, Book 3 is on preorder right now too!
