Very well done and successfully plays off the previous books and their themes. Gerald, you need to have a better proof reader, again way to many edit/typo issues. I volunteer to proof your forthcoming novels for free ( l'm serious). Best regards, David C. (Joan & Michaels friend)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The fourth installment in Gerald J. Kubicki’s Colton Banyon mysteries, “A Dubious Terrain,” is good news for anyone who has started the series, or who has at least read “A Dubious Dream,” which was just begging for a sense of closure or some kind of resolution.
Just like the rest of the series, “A Dubious Terrain” is fast-paced enough to be a page-turner. Making use of actual historical characters and weaving fictionalized versions of their stories into the plot also makes for quite a fascinating read. The Las Vegas setting is perfect for the unexpected twists in the plot, which manages to incorporate the otherworldly presence of Wolf into the scenario seamlessly.
Minor improvements in editing could do the book much good, especially for readers who are easily distracted by such factors. All in all though, “A Dubious Terrain” is a satisfying guilty pleasure for fans of suspense novels.

This was my first book to read by the author and I was not disappointed. My attention was grabbed from the beginning and I found myself not wanting to put the book down. There is plenty of mystery, suspense, twist and turns to this wonderful book in this series. The story is about current hot topic, illegal immigrants which made it even more interesting to me. Great read for anyone that likes a lot of action and mystery.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Kubicki's latest Colton Banyon mystery sets off at a cracking pace and never let's up. There are thrills and twists a plenty, and you'll find it hard if not impossible to second guess the plot. The underlying issues, of illegal aliens and the rising tide of resentment and radical reaction groups are important and chilling, and the book makes any right thinking person pause to consider what's going on in our world. Kubicki knows his subjects too, and writes with an easy assurance of tone and style.
My only reservation is probably purely personal. I would have preferred a little less of the sexy scenes involving Banyon and the rather fantastical ladies, and to keep concentrating on the main action. But..hey, that's just me! It's the reason I have rated it 4 stars and not 5, but in truth 4 and half would probably be fairer.
It's a gripping read and more than worth picking up. I look forward to the next!
