Frank Nagler has his hands full with a serial killer on the loose, departmental infighting and political intrigue. Throw in personal drama and the rookie detective’s plate is pretty full. Only dogged determination and a hunger for mystery solving keeps his head above water. “The Red Hand” is well written and easy to read. The mystery keeps the pages turning. Glad I started with Book 4. Now I can move on to Book 1.




Elite Choice Awards judge feedback: Fast paced and filled with exciting twists and turns, THE WEIGHT OF LIVING , is everything you love about a traditional mystery novel and then some. The book is well written, meticulously plotted and keeps you on the edge of your seat of your seat the entire way through. The characters are fully developed and believable, with Frank Nagler offering sharp and compelling dialogue as the story’s protagonist. The book is filled with vivid, brilliant descriptions that make you feel you are living and breathing each scene with the characters. Overall this book is a highly recommended page turner!

An additional new review:

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight Plot, Great Characters, Great Writing

Book three in a terrific series, the author, Michael Stephen Daigle, weaves a fast paced, convoluted, dark crime thriller. This novel starts with what looks like a simple mystery (a young girl is found in a grocery store Dumpster on a cold March night wearing just shorts and a tank top.) and winds up a complex decades old thriller. I enjoyed this book very much. The author certainly keeps you on your toes from the start.
Highly recommended.
