    Excellent Psychological Drama

    If you want gripping suspense or fast-paced mystery, don't look here. This story does not move quickly. Instead, it forces readers to take their time, to wander the paths of the main character, to get lost with him, to feel his emotions and to see the minute details in life that many of us so easily overlook.

    Edward Conlon is a cop writing about cops and his inside viewpoint gives readers something new to look at. There is some mystery, some suspense, some police procedural. But, at its heart, this book is one man's journey while finding his place in life. The words are sometimes poetic, sometimes crushing in their realism. Red On Red is a powerful read for those willing to set aside their expectations and lose themselves in the words.

    Save Your Money

    Oh my God, there is nothing worse than an "author" who tries to step out of what he his and write as someone else. Conlon is a cop, so why doesn't he write like a cop. I made it through 65 pages and had to stop abusing my eyes and my brain. "The tattered curl of the edges added to the faintness of the praise." What is that? I only wish there was some way to get my money back.

    Could not put it down. Hope more to follow.

    This New York police thriller had both exciting action and great insight into what seemed like the inner most feelings of real life detectives.

    Yawn!

    This book was SO slow going! I kept hoping it would get better, but it never did. I'm a fast reader normally, but this took much longer than usual. Don't waste your money!

    Cops, Love 'Em Or Leave 'Em

    Edward Conlon's novel is very well done. I enjoyed going out with the two partners each day and felt that he conveyed well what the daily life might be like for detectives of experience in New York. Many books have been written about whether the job corrupts the cop or the corrupt become cops. It seems it's more likely the job as cops have to deal with so many obstacles to goodness. Courts, rules, lowlifes, easy money, easy wins, temptation is always at the door. It wouldn't even surprise me if some of Conlon's fellow cops came here and trashed his novel! It's well worth a read, despite the naysayers.
