Présentation de l'éditeur

Praise for Storm Rising - A Kelli Storm Novel and author Kenneth Hoss

Kenneth Hoss has a well-rounded character in Kelli Storm. Although, a tough and determined Detective, she has a vulnerability to her. His research and knowledge of police work show through in the pages of Storm Rising. A must read for those who love police procedural mysteries. ~ Carolyn Arnold, Author of the Amazon best-selling Novel Ties That Bind

Inlcudes Chapter One from the newly released Storm Warning - A Kelli Storm Novel, the second book in the Kelli Storm Series.

When a murder investigation turns Detective Kelli Storm’s attention to a drug kingpin, the last thing she expected was to find a link to her father’s killer from twenty years earlier.

Detectives Kelli Storm and Bill Hayes are investigating multiple homicides in New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood.

When a young woman is murdered, Kelli tracks the killer to a Gentleman’s Club in Manhattan. There she locates an unwilling witness. When the woman is assaulted and left dying, the investigation takes a new twist. The DEA steps in and takes over, forcing Kelli off the case.

She decides to take a different approach. Working behind the scenes, she pulls out one of her father’s old case files and finds a connection between the killer and his murder.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Storm Rising - A Thrilling Ride 30 janvier 2012
Par Alle Wells - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Kelli Storm is a lovable character with the harshness of a seasoned cop, the compassion of a loving daughter, and the frailty of an ordinary woman. Her goal in life is to be a police detective like her father who was gunned down when Kelli was ten years old. She becomes a top-notch detective, married to her work after overcoming personal obstacles from a failed marriage and substance abuse. Through the years, she's never given up on finding her father's killer. Kelli runs into a bit of trouble when she investigates a murder at a nightclub associated with an elusive kingpin of an international drug cartel. Kelli's personal life becomes closely woven into the case when she finds a connection to her father's murder. The investigation affects her home, her career, and the lives of the people closest to her. The story gets even hotter when Kelli and an old partner team up and meet the enemy on his own turf.
While reading this book, the images were so clear that they danced in front of me. The police department dialogue and the date, hour and time prompts moved the story along and reminded me of watching a detective show on television. Storm Rising was a thrilling ride that kept me glued to my seat.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good police thriller 6 mars 2012
Par The Kindle Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Kelli Storm is a detective in the NYPD. She is investigating a major drugs case, whilst meanwhile worrying about her mother - suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's. But her case is forced into the shadows by the DEA, who tell her to keep away from the central figure in the gang - they have been working on a case for three years with him, and Kelli is likely to blow it wide open if she doesn't keep her distance. Kelli is incensed by this, and when she herself becomes under attack through her home, her mother and her partner, she is determined to see justice done.

Kelli is a straight talker, and I am genuinely intrigued to know if this is actually how police women behave and speak! She seems to be fearless - except in her private life, where she has a history of problems. It's not entirely clear what brought these problems on in the first place, but she has been fighting her demons and appears to be coming out the other side.

On the whole, the character of Kelli Storm is very well portrayed. As the reader, you can't help to be on her side. Kenneth Hoss has done a great job of giving her a character with conflicting characteristics which are nevertheless entirely credible. The story is fast and punchy, with never a dull moment.

In places, the writing shows that this is a novel which has not been professionally edited. As a reader, it felt as if Hoss was bursting to tell the story, and just couldn't wait to get it down on paper. That is a real strength in many ways, because the enthusiasm shines through. But it has led to a few sections which don't scan as well as they might.

In spite of those issues, if you love fast action police thrillers, I am confident that you will love Storm Rising.

Reviewed for the Kindle Book Review.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kicking Up a Storm 29 août 2011
Par Gail M Baugniet, Author of For Every Action - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The lead character in author Kenneth Hoss's action-packed suspense novel, Storm Rising, is a no nonsense protagonist who takes a back seat to no one.

Detective Kelli Storm fights her own battles, whether she is on a stake-out with a rookie partner or in the heat of a showdown with male counterparts trailing in her wake. She doesn't do patience well, especially when her snitch is late with information about a high ranking drug member who is also a murder suspect.

When the bad guys make things personal for her, a fellow detective discourages her from responding. But Storm lives up to her name and turns the tables until she is back in control. Now, with emotions high, the action is kicked up another notch. The story unfolds in Mr. Hoss's descriptive voice, moving between New York's Bronx, Yonkers, and Brooklyn before following the trail of drug dealers south.

Kelli Storm's complicated personal life is at odds with her career, where her performance suggests she has nothing to lose. How she maintains her equilibrium in both areas of her life is the essence of this story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Amazing Storm 1 février 2012
Par Nancy of Utah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Kelli Storm is a female NYC detective. You might call her a cougar; but no, she's not an old lady on the hunt! She is a wildly obsessive detective who does not quit the hunt for the leader of the largest drug cartell in Columbia and Mexico. Miguel Garcia is the most powerful drug lord who brought death to her partner and his wife; he's linked to the death of her father who was also a detective. Attempts have been made on Kelli's life, too, as well as her mother being kidnapped from an assisted living facility. Her hunt for this man takes her into the barren desert of Mexico and also to Mexico City. Kelli is fiesty, but you come to respect her for her attempts to right so many wrongs. The characters are well defined, each one memorable. This novel is high action, extremely well written, and styled to move you rapidly from scene to scene. I look forward to more excitement that comes into Kelli's life. I want more, and I want it soon!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I had high hopes, but this novel fell short 13 janvier 2013
Par Annie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As I started reading this book, I realized I hadn't read very many police books. In fact, this might be the first book that I've read in this genre. However, I am a fan of police dramas and have watched several TV shows.

I did not care for this book for several reasons.

First, the use of profanity was excessive. There are ways to write a character to show that they're a hard-nosed, no holds bar cop, and that's not through the use of foul language. That is done through character development, which I felt this book was lacking. I never felt connected to the main character, never bought into her story line or her struggle. What is the character arc? I really don't know.

Also, story lines needed to be better fleshed out. For example, in the beginning of the book, you read about Kelli's mother, who seems perfectly fine. Then, in the next chapter, you learn that she has advanced staged Alzheimer disease and needs to placed in a home, and Kelli is able to find a home in the matter of a day or two. It's just not believable. Kelli is also a recovering alcoholic, yet after reading half of the book, this also wasn't believable. There was no story line to show her struggle with this issue or seemingly no reason to even mention that she was a recovering alcoholic. When her ex husband enters the picture, it goes from the two not having seen each other in some time, to all of a sudden, he's planting a kiss on Kelli's cheek as they're about to surprise some bad guys.

Key to the story is this plot line that the current case Kelli is investigating has something to do with her father's death, yet I never fully understood the connection. Even at page 180 I still didn't understand this connection.

This story may have the underpinnings of a good novel, but in my opinion, significantly more character and plot development is needed.

I also found numerous grammatical and punctuation issues. I normally wouldn't mention this in a review (after all, to err is human), however the number noted in this novel was excessive. If it was edited, it wasn't done well. And the formatting of the paperback wasn't on par. I mention this as for me, the formatting of a book is part of the experience. There were gaps at the end of pages, chapter headings split between multiple pages, etc. A paid service could have managed these types of issues.

At first I thought my feelings about the book were due to the fact that I've not read other police procedurals, but after making it halfway through the book, I simply felt that it fell short of being an engaging novel that I could finish.
