He dismembers his victims and leaves them in garbage bags in public places. Another huge disappointment reading the fourth Walt Flemming series book from author Ridley Pearson. The problem is that once you have gotten your nifty new product, the in harm s way pearson ridley gets a brief glance, maybe a once over, but it often tends to get discarded or lost with the original packaging. The Seizing of Yankee Green Mall was also published as Hidden Charges. This the first book I've read by Ridley Pearson and I really enjoyed it. The story is interesti A friend gave me this book to read.
I thought Fiona's emotional issues were a little over-the-top without a complete explanation, and the character of Kira got a little lost in the story. But things change with frightening speed when a series of apparent suicides, which soon prove to be murders, shocks the community. In this book there is less action and more dialogue than other books by Pearson that I have read. I have to say I had to stay in my car to listen to the end of certain chapters because I had to find out what happened. It is the Sheriff at his best chasing down the murder of a celebrity football player.
His one exceptional trait is, with the help of us loyal dog Bea, his tracking ability. The availiability of items requested from other libraries may depend on the policies of the other libraries. I I first became aware of Ridley Pearson's young adult series Kingdom Keepers. There are football bigwigs living in the resort area and he looks for a connection there. It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. I love reading mysteries and was thrilled to win this book from the Early Reviewers program. Sheriff Walt Fleming has a high profile murder to solve; a ex football player is found on the side of the road dead.
So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon - and its rider missing - Pine is called in to investigate. Things have gotten complicated for Walt Fleming. Pearson is an excellent storyteller. Why is Kenshaw so frightened of publicity? Johnson draws on his deep attachment to the American West to produce a literary mystery of stunning authenticity, full of memorable characters. Not fully understanding the past of the crime scene photographer, Fiona Kenshaw keeps you questioning her actions and motives from the first chapter to the end. I won this pre-release book off Goodreads Firstreads. Ridley Pearson is a really good mystery writer, and this book is no exception.
Can Walt turn away from what seems an impossible truth? I like that the book was set in the Hailey, Idaho, area because it's where so many famous people have homes and I could learn something about it. Then Walt gets a phone call that changes everything: Lou Boldt, a police sergeant out of Seattle, calls to report that a recent murder may have a Sun Valley connection. There is also a major plot hole in the story that serves as a red herring to the story. This book stands well on its own. Another far too long and over reaching tale that keeps getting lost in the woods.
So many clues, and only a few suspects. She pleads with Walt to keep her face out of the papers, which has him perplexed as to her reasoning. Also liked how he used his dog Beatrice for tracking and as his conscience. Confused by her protests, Walt thinks she's just being modest about her heroism. The third book in series was a dud, 2 Stars. As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing.
His book Peter and the Starcatchers, written with Dave Barry, was adapted by Rick Elice into a play which went on to Broadway to win 5 Tony Awards. Despite her job and her laudable actions, she begs Walt to keep her photo out of the paper, avoiding him when he can't. Over the years, his work has been published in two dozen languages, and has been adapted by network television and for the Broadway stage. His research has spanned the globe and included everything from the engine room of a cruise liner, to a nighttime visit to Walt Disney World's It's. Some Walt doesn't like and some others are to close to home giving Walt a huge moral dilemma. It is the first I have read. The author repeatedly breaks a golden rule critics always point out: He describes characters by saying they look like famous people thereby getting the reader to draw the description visually by planting the famous person's image in their head.
The author also brings in Lou Boldt from Seattle, a character from his first detective series. What I do know is that I looked forward to Pearson's dialog more than anything. A very tight story with a lot of emotion from Walt. Walt Fleming is a single dad trying to balance his difficult, time consuming job with the time he needs to spend with his children. What happens with this story is a former steroided out football star gets released from jail for beating up his ex-girlfriend.
At 490 pages paperback there were points I though I'd never get through it. Walt and Boldt begin to fit together the pieces of a terrifying puzzle - in the process putting themselves and everyone around them in harm's way. He has to work not only with Fiona, the crime-scene photographer with whom he has a budding romance, but also with the man who is currently shacked up with his ex-wife. Sheriff Walt Flemming's increasing friendship with his part time crime scene photographer Fiona Kenshaw hits a bump when Fiona is photographed herself following her rescue of a young girl from a storm swollen river.
