This was a good murder mystery with suspence. Aussie lingo and tribal native culture included. Well worth reading. Very likable characters.

Had you hooked the minute you started reading. Do they proofread the books? There was so many misspelled words that it suprised me that they wouldn't have been corrected.

You out did yourself again! I'm going to have to read all of these again and in the proper order. It's definitely well worth it! I look forward to reading more of Ben Hood. Thanks for keeping him respectful, honest, and decent. Who would'nt want him as their body guard! A++++

Just finished 1106 pages of pure entertainment. Seems long, but the pages fly by! Be sure to read Mr. Lindseys book, The Coral Reef Affair first, it will explain a few things in this book. It is unbelievable that both of these books were FREE!! They are worth paying for!!

A thirlling book from start to finish, featuring likeable characters from the author's first book Coral Sea Affair (which is also an excellant read). Black Mountain Affair is about a serial killer who is systematically killing in the Cooktown area in Far North Queensland, Australia and is hiding their remains deep within Black Mountain. The story follows the dedicated detectives and Ben Hood who is supposed to be protecting a socialite on their journey to find the killer. The story takes lots of twists and turns and keeps you in suspense right up until the last chapter. It also touches on Australian Aboriginal mythology which adds an interesting element to the book. An exciting "edge of your seat thriller".

This was a good read. Can't help but think the main character is the alter ego for the author. A 51 year old guy gets ALL the women in the story is just unrealistic. He is the best body guard ever, but he is nearly killed the first night on the job. How could anyone call him the best, of course compared to the dim witted police he appears godlike. I like my characters a little more realistic.

Loved this book with Australian lore and landmarks. It was wonderful in the descriptions of the scenery and the characters. I had difficulty putting down my Nook and read much of the story while plugged into recharging. It's a full length novel and free as well! I am now hooked on this author. Try it - you'll like it!
