5.0 von 5 Sternen Clyde Phillips'debut novel packs a powerful punch!
FALL FROM GRACE plasters you to the book on the first page and never let's go. The characters are compelling, commanding, real; the plot fascinating, with more twists than Hwy 1; and the pacing is break-neck beautiful. Rarely, if ever, have I read a debut novel (or one by an old hand) that has kept my heart in my throat and me on the edge of my chair from start to...

1.0 von 5 Sternen 3 improbable things
There improbable things about this book: (1) the plot; (2) the fact that it was ever published; and (3) that I actually wasted money on it. Wouldn't have been worth a quarter in a bargain bin at the used book store.

A bit too much of everything (especially the bridge), predictable story, unbelievable coincidences. Thumped thru the second half only to get the book finished.

2.0 von 5 Sternen love story, 4. Dezember 2013
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fall From Grace (The Detective Jane Candiotti Series Book 1) (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
The plot was unfortunately more focused on the lonelyand desperate main character than on the investigation. A new genre of Harlequin ?

It's rare when you encounter a read this compelling from a first time author. But Phillips has done it... in spades. Plot, characters and dialogue kept me blasting through the pages. In fact, it just kept getting better and better. A must-read for all fans of the genre. Kudos, Mr. Phillips. Let's see more from you!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put it down, 4. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Fall from Grace is a thrill ride from beginning to end. I loved the characters and was consistently intrigued by the twists and turns of the fast-moving story. Phillips makes the backdrop of San Fransisco and the Golden Gate Bridge come breathtakingly alive. An inviting and satisfying read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Written like a well-plotted television show!!, 19. September 2000
"Fall From Grace", Clyde Phillips' first in a series of psychological thrillers, is written like a well-plotted television show---which comes as no surprise springing from the mastermind of many long-running shows ("Parker Lewis Can't Lose" being one of them). This wham-bam shoot-'em-up is furiously paced and intelligent as well. It all seems to begin when handsome lawyer David Perry is told by his beautiful wife that she is suing for divorce. The following emotional battle degenerates into a hateful tug-of-war. Perry moves into a recently purchased condo, pining for more time with his only daughter, Lily, whom his soon-to-be ex-wife wants to deny him visitation rights with. One day, while taking a seemingly random ride on San Francisco's BART transit system, Perry strikes up a conversation with Barton Hubble, a self-proclaimed "expert" on foreign cars...which Perry finds to be fortuitous, since his BMW's recent mechanical problems are the reason he says he's been forced to utilize public transit. The two become unlikely friends when Hubble offers to fix Perry's car "free of charge", in exchange for some free legal advice. Finding a sympathetic ear, Perry spills his anger and bitterness about his wife...and suddenly finds himself in the midst of a murder investigation. His wife is kidnapped from her own house one morning, only to be found brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave in a nearby park. Enter Jane Candiotti, one of SF's finest homicide detectives. Her and her partner Kenny are handed the investigation, on top of an already full case-load. What the pair don't realize is exactly how complicated their lives and their careers are about to become. When Jane falls in love with Perry, much to the anger and dismay of her partner, the story takes a series of astounding and thrilling twists.
Phillips knows how to pace his story and throw in just enough action and intrigue to make this not only a page-turner, but a page-burner as well! Believable characters, emotional depth, intricate plot twists, and breathtaking scenery conspire to make this a must-read book. I heartily look forward to reading the next in the series!

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fall from Grace (Taschenbuch)
It is so exciting to discover a new writer with such mesmerizing talent. An atmospheric, creepy read with characters you'll remember long after finishing the book. All the style and suspense of Hitchcock, but with heart. Bravo!
