Kurzbeschreibung

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The six Simeon Grist private-eye novels by 2011 Edgar and Macavity Award nominee Timothy Hallinan have become cult favorites and are now available fot the first time since the 1990s. For a fee so big he can't turn it down, Grist is hired to watchdog the kind of guy he'd usually prefer to throw through the nearest window. Toby Vane is the golden boy of prime-time TV, whose gee-whiz smile and chiseled features mask a dark secret that would take the shine off for his millions of adoring female fans: every now and then he beats up a woman, and almost any woman will do. When some of the women around Toby begin to turn up dead, Simeon has to figure out whether he's protecting a murderer – or whether one of Toby's multitude of enemies wants to put him away forever. And when Simeon meets the beautiful Nana, the whole situation becomes very personal, very fast.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Skin Deep 12. Oktober 2010
Von Namaste01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Skin Deep" by Timothy Hallinan was the first of 3 in a series with the character Simeon Grist. It explores LA's underbelly of Hollywood, actors, and strip clubs. I'm not sure who Toby represents in "real" life, if any, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to meet him. I loved the way Timothy Hallinan used descriptive language. I've included a few sentences out of context because I think they're great and you can read these out of context and still get the visuals they suggest. So here they are:

"last thing I digested was my backbone"
"We were surrounded by money but the money hadn't been able to intimidate the heat"
"I felt like a counterfeit twenty"
"My tongue felt like a supernatural prankster had sneaked in during the night and inserted it into one of those sheepskin seatcovers that sports car drivers for some reason covet"

All in all a good read and I would recommend all in the series. After those, be sure and read Hallinan's series that take place in Bangkok (the latest one "The Queen of Patpong") but I would recommend you read in order.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's a keeper! 30. September 2010
Von EvKa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This may have been his first novel (even if it was published AFTER his second and third novels), but it sure doesn't read like it! A great story and great characters, both the good-guys and the bad-guys. A page turner and characters you love, what more can you ask for. This book is a steal at $2.99!

5.0 von 5 Sternen No Fluff Here! 25. Mai 2012
Von LnBen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Heaven help me! I've found another favorite thriller/mystery author. Timothy Hallinan has created a character worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence with John Rain, Elvis Cole and Jack Reacher.
PI Simeon Grist is smart, literate and tenacious as hell.
In this 3rd book (which is really the first book in the series...publishers are strange people) we meet some very nasty people. So nasty that I don't recommend this book to the feint of heart. You will walk with Simeon as he puts the pieces of a grizzly murder of a stripper into place. You will feel his anger and disgust. Any you will be hooked.
Added to the great plot and character is a wonderful use of the English prose. Hallinan gives quotable lines in almost every chapter:
"So sit on your secrets. Keep them warm. Maybe they'll hatch into nightmares."
"Money is heavy beyond its physical weight. Gram for gram, money is the heaviest thing in the world."
The sex is hinted at, not dwelt upon. The violence (and there's quite a bit) is more referred to than described. But you know both are there...in spades.
Well written. Well enjoyed. So much so, that thanks to Kindle, I now own all of this series. And am looking forward to hours with my newest hero...Simeon Grist.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Before Poke Rafferty, there was Simeon Grist 27. Januar 2011
Von Neal Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
While I think Timothy Hallinan truly hit his stride with the Poke Rafferty series, this, the 2nd Simeon Grist novel I've read, is a well paced PI story with sufficient humor to keep it light in spite of it's dealing with a serious subject, male brutality towards women. Grist has an overly educated PI is a quite enjoyable character, and this particular volume has a nicely ironic ending.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simeon Grist does it again 13. April 2012
Von Ardith L Abate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Skin Deep was a look at some of the more tawdry aspects of show biz. Memorable characters and lots of action keep the reader engrossed to the end. I really enjoyed this book, especially since Simeon Grist was an old friend. I used to think that series of novels based on the same primary character would be boring, but Timothy Hallinan changed my mind. I look forward to more on Simeon Grist's life and loves.
