    This tale is engrossing and well written. Vivid imagery is present throughout the book. There is exploration of the fight between good versus evil in each person. Perhaps not all is fully explained, but rarely are supernatural occurrences completely clarified. I look forward to future works from this author!

    Laura finds her world turned upside down one evening when she receives news that her husband and two daughters have been brutally murdered. After this tragic event, Laura is sent on a dark journey to seek vengeance for the crimes committed against her and her family. <BR/><BR/>Laura is wanted for more information about her family's murders, with Detective Andarus and his partner, Irene, on the case. Laura's journey takes her through chilling and dark moments, and there's the ever-present question of whether her quest for vengeance will consume her. <BR/><BR/>Mr. Aleman takes the reader through a dark and disturbing journey along with Laura. While some moments are gory and send chills up the spine, the cute bickering between Andarus and Irene create the comic relief that the story greatly needs. Alemen's unique writing style captures the reader from page one. <BR/><BR/>This book is a good read that will open the reader's eyes to the life of those who lose everything and have to deal with what happens afterwards.

    Cold Streak certainly sent a chill down my spine

    Lewis Aleman is a master storyteller. He drags you into Laura's world and keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. As a Mother of three, this book sent chills down my spine and at parts had me weeping in complete empathy for Laura.

    What would you do if your family were murdered? Aleman explores this question in a fast-paced, character-driven, gothic-style story that doesn't seem to follow any of the rules. What you expect to have as the climax of the novel comes in the first third of the book, making you thirsty to see what he's got up his sleeve. While mostly dark, there are moments of humor that are truly funny and lines that border on poetic. Two or three scenes are pretty gory, and the voice that haunts Laura creates some disturbing images. Andarus and Irene's constant bickering had me literally laughing out loud. (I have to side with Irene and say that you can't use 'confront' like that.) There are enough literary references to satisfy an avid-bookworm like myself, but the novel never feels weighed down with them. People who enjoyed China Mieville's King Rat will find themselves drawn into the dark side of Riverview. The ending is vaguely reminiscent of Great Expectations, yet much more satisfying. What more could you want?
