David Corbett either knows some really bad dudes, or he’s one heck of a pretender (based on his upcoming non-fiction book THE ART OF CHARACTER: CREATING MEMORABLE CHARACTERS FOR FICTION, FILM, AND TV), I’d lean more toward the latter, although I’m inclined to do so with extreme caution. None of the guys and gals in THE DEVIL’S REDHEAD are what I would call good guys, but I still rooted for Danny Abatangelo with every fiber of my being. Shel Beaudry provides as much strength as her male counterparts, and she’s every bit as damaged. This novel was gritty enough that I felt like I was picking asphalt from between my incisors, yet I had to read on until the final resolution.
If you don’t want your head to feel like it was used as a battering ram, you may want to skip this read. However, if you do, you’ll do so at your own peril, because Mr. Corbett knows how to bring the goods and create memorable characters.
Author of Falling Immortality: Casey Holden, Private Investigator

I will admit that before reading the book I interviewed the author. He made such an impact that I had to go back and read his novel. The Devil's Redhead is about a drug dealer and the woman he loves. I can't classify it as a mystery but it's not a love story either. This book is so much more. I couldn't put it down and the charactors have lived with me long after finishing the last page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This author's going to be big in the crime writing field. The characters are very real--not cardboard at all. The story is not pat, but moves rapidly forward with many unexpected twists and turns. This book will grab you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
