Overview

After twenty-fives years on the job, NYPD Lieutenant Greg Webster retired to a small Kansas college to teach classes in Criminal Justice. Webster looked forward to the move as a well-deserved rest for himself and his social-worker wife, Carolyn. Unfortunately, before even a year had passed Carolyn was dead, killed in an apparent hit-and-run accident. Though dazed and heartbroken, Greg suspected nothing sinister about her death until, as a class project, one of Webster’s students began researching local violent deaths and Carolyn’s accident began to look more and more like the latest in a series of murders.

But why would a successful serial killer tempt fate by targeting the wife of a retired police officer? Maybe because it was all becoming too easy for him, too many easy targets. Now the murderer wanted more of a challenge, an opponent tougher than the local campus cops. But in taking on Greg Webster the Watcher has made a serious mistake. He should have heeded the old warning: Be careful what you wish for.

My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind." I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All are available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers. All of my novels except "Daniel" are available in trade paperback editions at Amazon.com from publisher, Wildside Press. My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1. I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America. The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp." I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson. My most recent novel is "Death Never Sleeps." I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Death Never Sleeps", "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone." I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).

Author: David Grace Published By: D. G. Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Book Blog For: GMTA Rating: 5 Review: "Easy Target" by David Grace was a good detective/mystery read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Greg and his wife had moved to Varity, Kansas where he had changed his livelihood from working for the NYPD to teaching 'felony murder' classes at KCU. Life quickly had changed when his wife Carolyn had died suddenly from a hit and run accident. But was this really a accident? In "Easy Target" you will find very interesting plots...with several stories in this novel and with well developed characters...all making this read a intriguing read. This author really does his magic with this read presenting quite a story especially with the help of Greg Websters one student ....as a class assignment.."began researching local violent deaths and Carolyn's accident began to look more and more like the latest in a series of murders" and now this novel takes off where I say ... Were these all accidents or are we dealing with a serial killer? Now, this is the part that I will say you must pick up this read.."Easy Target" to see what, how and what Mr. Grace will touch us with a great written story that you will find hard to put down until the last word only leaving ...."He should have heeded the old warning: Be careful what you wish for." I found "Easy Target" easy excellent read that I would recommend to the reader especially if you like a good mystery read.
