Présentation de l'éditeur

Bolero is one of those rare thrillers you truly can’t put down. Introducing noir detective, Nick Sayler, it is a nonstop ride to an unexpected twist ending.

Despite his bronze star with its prized V for valor, Nick Sayler was once a thief, junkie, and prime suspect in a murder case. Now he’s a mostly changed man, a private investigator with a long list of rich clients and a good life. But even after ten years there’s not enough whiskey in the world to wash away acid-etched memories of Julia Carteret, the beautiful woman who took a bullet meant for him.

He never expected a second chance to make things right until he got a midnight call from a distraught young doctor and a plea from a fragile dancer with no money, no memory, nothing in her pocket except Sayler’s card, and the number 44 carved across her back. With bewitching violet eyes she looks so much like Julia, Sayler thinks keeping her safe could put him back on the road to redemption. But not long after he takes her home to his Hudson River barge, he learns that she has a past as dark as his own, and soon he’s protecting her from a patient sociopath with seemingly preternatural power to be in two places at once.

Sayler needs his wingman Meriwether, the brilliant savant, and his restless backup, Tommy Fallon NYPD homicide, whose dicey investigative methods keep them under the radar, which is the only place to be when Sayler taunts danger. As he nears old secrets linking the dancer to a strange group: a voluptuous redhead, a concert pianist, a skateboarder, and a Polish nanny, he starts to learn why the murderer’s sex-stoked obsession can’t end until the girl is dead. When the killer who never sleeps gets the best of an exhausted Sayler on an isolated island off the coast of Connecticut, in Manhattan’s meatpacking district, and on the streets of Harlem, smart money might bet both ways, except for one sure thing: in spite of his bad leg and worse habits, no matter what the cost, Nick Sayler will not let another woman die.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 You can't judge a book by it's title - nor it's cover 8 août 2013
Par Kenneth C. Mahieu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I'd rate this 1 1/2 stars. I acquired "Bolero" as the result of an ad on my Kindle, and I didn't research it properly; that won't happen again. Then I got to a point in the book where I just wanted it to end yet I kept plodding through, instead of quitting and saving my time; that won't happen again. As for the story, Nick Saylor is a PI who lives on a converted barge on the Hudson River near Weehawken. He answers a phone call and commits to helping an amnesia victim who has been brutally attacked, apparently the intended third victim of a serial killer. And we have our first cliche, the amnesia victim who forgets everything, conveniently. There are several other cliches, including a hero who has a damaged leg and seems to drink too much. By the way every time he talks about getting a drink, he just doesn't refer to it as a "drink" we have to hear the brand name, Jameson (my Kindle says "Jameson" was mentioned 17 times - I wonder if books have product placement fees like movies). Another cliche - Nick is pining for Julia, his one true love, dead the past ten years (note to author - guys don't pine for dead lovers for 10 years). And the amnesia victim looks like....guess who. And did I mention that Nick spent a lot of time during his troubled youth getting straightened out by an order of nuns (and I just finished "The Other Typist" which deploys the nun cliche also). I did have a few other problems with the book. Too many characters seemed to be the world's best __________ (fill in the blank as appropriate). They were described as just about perfect in their chosen fields, few detectable flaws if any). Not sure what they were, but they weren't interesting, they weren't characters. Secondly, the cops-PI relationship didn't seem real - it was too friendly, too confiding. Much of the dialogue flowed well, but there were scenes where it felt stilted, especially between Nick and Julia where their exchanges seemed to morph into something from a romance novel. The climax was fine and there were some interesting factoids here and there but I still can't recommend "Bolero" and I will not read the next in this series.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An Interesting Plot, But . . . 20 février 2013
Par Bradley Bevers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I could not get past the character's origins in the book, especially the lead, Nick Sayler. Too many coincidences line up, too many things fall into place, and it really prevented me from getting lost in the story (which is pretty good). The story is grounded in realism, but the characters seem too far-fetched and fanciful to believe . . . just doesn't match up quite right for me.

Nick Sayler:

* Spent some time in the marines
* Did that to avoid prison
* Former heroin addict
* Former drug dealer
* Former boxer
* Won a barge to live on in a poker game with a rich kid
* Found a painting in the boat the kid accidentally left. Sells it and gets rich enough to outfit the barge perfectly.
* Lives on the barge with an idiot savant who only communicates with him

The other characters are colorful, but one-dimensional. Nick Sayler is portrayed as someone who's had a rough, rough background but lives like James Bond now . . . not believable enough for me to buy into the rest of the story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping Psychological Suspense 7 décembre 2012
Par Darcia Helle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Bolero is a fascinating story. Unlike many suspense and thriller novels that explore the gruesome details of the murders and the pursuit of the killer, this one delves more into the psychological and emotional journey of P.I. Nick Sayler. Written in first person, we are in Nick's head with an up close and personal view of his world. We feel the conflict pulling at him and the emotional turmoil he experiences along the way. Nick is a complicated guy with a complicated past. Like most of us, he drags a lot of baggage. This is often the story's focus, and it works well. I felt a connection with Nick, whose character is slightly damaged and very likable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bolero 11 décembre 2012
Par Patricia H. Parker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
The title of this book "Bolero" is an indication of how the story mounts in suspense and what is at risk if the leading character, Nick Sayler, doesn't solve the crime. Just as Ravel's Bolero increases in tension as one moves through the composition so does this story.

It starts with Nick Sayler, a private detective, being called by a young intern at Bellevue Hospital. His business card has been found in the pocket of a young woman who has been dropped off at the Emergency Entrance. She had been found beaten and left to die in an alley in Manhattan. The card is the only clue to her identity as her wallet and all other documents are missing. The hospital policy is that, because of the lack of identification, the woman will be designated a "Jane Doe" and admitted to the psychiatric ward at the hospital. The doctor, using the only clue he has, has called Sayler and asked him to take her out of the building so that she won't be lost in the routine of the hospital. This is the beginning of a search for her identity and for the person or persons who tried to kill her.

As Sayler tries to find out who the woman is he learns that she is the third "dancer" who has been attacked in this way in the past few months. She is lucky as the taxi driver who found her on the street and dropped her at the hospital saved her life. Sayler figures out that she is a dancer by her physical characteristics, posture and bearing. There is also something very frail about her, and she is a woman men want to protect. Everyone she meets is impressed with how nice she is, and Sayler finds himself falling in love with her. This is not good for him as the death of the great love of his life ten years earlier has left him wounded and carrying a lot of emotions around with him.

Among the characters in this book are Sloane, a retired doctor, Fallon and Goode, who are a team of detectives from the NYPD and Merriweather, a type of savant who was involved in a mutual life saving with Sayler when both men had hit bottom a few years before. Sloane and Merriweather live with Sayler on a converted barge on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. Lacking any clues as to the woman identity, the group of five decides to engage the media to put her picture out to a wider audience. It is then that the woman is identified as Hadley Fielding, a former Prima Ballerina with the New York City ballet. From this point, it is obvious that the people who attempted to kill Hadley, surprised that she is still alive, want to finish the job. As mentioned earlier, the story tempo rises faster and higher until, in a surprise ending, the whole story and the attempted murderers are discovered.

The book notes say that Ms McDonnell, the author, is at work on a new novel. I look forward to its publication and hope it will be as good as or better than this one.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Typically...... a murder mystery 7 mars 2013
Par Debra Harrison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book was like a lot of books I have read Just a standard mystery that a lot of people write, with a fast ending as if the Author was tired of it. However I give it three stars for good characters and snappy dialog. I read these books because it's a good escape and beats a sappy love story. Thanks for the entertainment.
