I have known Carl since we were teenagers and I have read all of his books . I have never written a review for any of the others. However, I was so impressed with this one that I was compelled to do so. Read it. I promise you will enjoy it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Season for Killing has it all. Greed, romance, humour, sex and the tentacles of big business. Cole Sturtevant and Carsyn Thoreau, law enforcement partners in Beautfort, SC have to deal not only with their professional responsibilities in bringing down a major crime enterprise, but also their personal relationship, which crosses the line of their daily work duties.
The only problem with the story is that it may interfere with the reader's daily tasks (and even sleep!) It's an edge-of-your-seat book; it's almost impossible to put down! If you like solid story-telling and characters with more depth than a parking lot puddle, this is a book for you.

I love the descriptive writing style of the author. I have read all of Carl T. Smith's books and this is by far my favorite. A Season for Killing is a very fast paced crime story lightened by the relationship of the detectives. I enjoyed every minute of it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I've been a loyal reader of Cart T. Smith books for over 5 years, and his new book, "A Season for Killing," did not disappoint at any level. Smith is a terrific story teller and this book has an authentic feel to it that the reader will enjoy. The story is set in Beaufort County, South Carolina. There, a woman's body is found in the middle of the night on a deserted highway. Is the fatality a "hit and run" or is it a homicide? The story takes off from there and you soon meet two detectives from the sheriff's office, Cole Sturtevant and Carsyn Thoreau. They will have the task of solving the case. Cole believes, "Justice itself justifies whatever it takes to achieve it." On the other hand, Carsyn plays only and strictly by the book. Somehow their philosophies and styles compliment each other and an interesting and believable chemistry is the result. You will meet some other intriguing characters who will keep you awake well into the night. The story is not just about good guys busting bad ones. This book is a page turner full of humor (you will laugh out loud for sure), but at the end of the day it is a genuine people story where justice is served, where people make mistakes, and where the characters somehow find ways to redeem themselves. You will grow to love the characters, at least most them, and will miss them well after you are done with the reading. The novel is well paced and the author's prose is graceful, real, contemporary, energetic, and very entertaining as well. It is a book that, when finished, will have you waiting to see what else the author has in store for Cole and Carsyn in another adventure. "A Season For Killing" is a joy to read and I recommend it without reservation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
