    Disappointed

    A poor imitation/twist onHannibal Lecter. Just read Hannibal or Red Dragon. Those are well written and worthy of your time. This author seems a little immature in his style at this point.

    It just gets better.

    This book was just as well written as the first. Must read but please start with Caribean Moon. I could not put this book down. I am hooked on these books. I can't wait until the next book is released. The characters and story line is so well written that you can relate to the characters and what they are going through.

    Better than the First

    I didn't think anything could top Caribbean Moon, but I was wrong. You could really feel Manny's pain in this one. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Very Good Read

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I read the first book in the series, and it took me a moment to get used to his style, as well as the type of details provided, but once I finished the book, I decided to give his second book a try. I must say, I like the second one more than the first. I can't wait to read the third installment, Emerald Moon.

    Tangled plot and crazy serial killers

    This new novel is sure to satisfy anyone who loved Caribbean Moon, our first encounter with Manny Williams. The author's vivid writing style is wielded with more finesse here, and the suspense of several different plot lines weaves throughout the entire story. A few of the fundamental premises of the book, though, stretch credibility a bit too far for my liking-particularly the sheer number of insane women who managed to find each other and develop a credible plan to kill and maim men whom they think need to be brought to justice, and the ease with which Detective Williams's nemesis pushes the buttons of the police so that they act like thugs rather than professionals. Murcer certainly portrays women with more variety than many of the top-ranked thriller authors do, but too many of his female characters still feel one-dimensional; they serve a single function in the story and are not developed much beyond that functionality, so they have little emotional appeal. While these quibbles were enough to keep me from giving Deceitful Moon an unqualified recommendation, it is a compelling read, even better than this author's debut.

    more from this reviewer

    Excellent read. Highly entertaining!

    Manny Williams wants to drive down the highway of "doing what is right." He's dedicated his life to catching bad guys and saving damsels in distress. When his damsels turn out to be bad guys, his roadmap is destroyed and he doesn't know where to turn. He doesn't know who to trust anymore and he doesn't understand why he didn't see the disaster coming. A major theme in Deceitful Moon, like in the first Manny Williams thriller, is the love of family and the struggle between maintaining a career and having time left over for his wife and daughter. Manny is a workaholic who pays a huge price for his habits, a debt that would bankrupt the best of us. I cried at the end!

    excellent choice

    If you think that the first part was good, then wait until you read this one. It's way better than Caribbean Moon, it's got more suspense and the end will really surprise you. I read it in half the time I usually takes me to read a book, I just couldn't put my nook down :)

    After reading all of Bob Morris' Caribbean mysteries and then discovering Caribbean Moon for my Nook, I knew that I would not be disappointed. Once again, Murcer delivers a page turning mystery with Deceitful Moon.

    Highly Recommended - Keeps you guessing.

    I enjoy Rick Murcer's books. The only reason I give his books 4 stars rather than 5 stars is because of typing errors in his books. He needs to have better proof-readers. :)

    Hard to put down once you start reading.

    For being a new writer he really captures the readers interest from begining to end. Just when you think you got it figured out your going to say wow didn't see that coming.
