    An expertly woven mystery!

    The first thing that attracted me to this book was the play on words in the title (paradise/pair-a-dice). After the first few pages, it is obvious that the title is very appropriate. A serial rapist/killer stalks the environs of Las Vegas, terrorizing the city to ever increasing levels. There are several sub-plots to this mystery, and the reader can¿t help but anxiously turn the page to see how each of them plays out. In the end, the intricately woven story comes together in a flash of brutality as disturbing, as compelling, as the rest of the book. Mr. Griffin¿s knowledge of police work and crime investigation is readily apparent. No amateurish guesswork here. It¿s as if you are reading from his own journal of experiences. This makes it all the more pleasurable to read. In my opinion, Dennis Griffin is one of the very best mystery writers of our time. For anyone who enjoys this genre, his books are an absolute must!

    Looking forward to Novel #4

    I have read THE MORGUE, RED GOLD and KILLER-IN-PAIR-A-DICE. I would recommend all three. Griffin is a good storyteller and the detective/police work portrayed is very realistic and believable. I can't wait to read his next one.

    This book held my attention from start to finish! The characters were so real. When the story was over, I felt like I had lost contact with personal friends. If you like suspense, you don't want to miss this page turner.

    A Real Nail Biter

    This one will keep you reading until you're done. Though the clues are there for you to figure out right along with the police detective, you won't guess who the killer is until it's revealed. I couldn't put this one down. Griffin did a great job keeping up the suspense throughout. It's not for the faint at heart, but if you love gritty police procedurals, this one is for you.

    Griffin weaves a tight plot and creates brilliant characters

    I love discovering new authors - particularly good ones. Dennis Griffin is one of the good ones. <p> Griffin's third novel, Killer in Pair-a-Dice is the first I've read of his. You can be sure I'm going to go back and read The Morgue (1999) and Red Gold (2000) soon. <p> The setting is modern-day Las Vegas. The reader is dropped into the action immediately, as a rapist/serial killer takes a victim. Griffin's characters are good - very good. The killer is cool, efficient, and detached; the victim is terrified, angry, defiant... and then dead. <p> Enter Las Vegas Metro Police Detective Steve Garneau, a likeable and professional investigator. Garneau soon becomes entrenched in the case and as bodies keep turning up, political and media pressure to catch the perpetrator intensify. <p> Griffin takes the reader into the killer's mind, revealing the complete rage and hatred the man harbors for a certain woman that his victims remind him of. The man's technique of using a garrote is distinctive - and intensely personal. He wraps his victims in a clean sheet, leaving few clues, and dumps them on roadsides where they will be found quickly. The press soon begins calling him the Phantom. <p> Garneau and his partner, Terry Bolton, make a good team. Griffin's writing style brings an immediate feeling of comfortable camaraderie between the two officers and he uses Bolton to balance what could easily become an all-male cast. <p> A sub-plot within the novel develops around the city's political powers, adding an extra layer to an already good story. Instead of distracting the reader, this third element adds to the mystery: How does this all tie together? <p> The reader will not be disappointed. <p> Griffin pays close attention to police procedure - a feature I appreciate. I suspect Griffin's own background in policing is what gives the novel a gritty, realistic feel. Griffin worked, among other investigative positions, as a P.I. for Pinkerton, and he attended the Central New York Regional Academy for Police Training. <p> The only problem I found with the novel was the copyediting was a little roughly done. This became distracting in spots, but I have to admit, as picky as I am about that, the story still thoroughly engaged me and I had a very hard time putting the book down.

    A Real Page Turner

    I absolutely loved Dennis Griffin's 'Killer In Pair-A-Dice' It grabs you right from the very first page when the action starts and doesn't let go until the very end. Even when you're not reading it, you're thinking about it and wondering when the killer will strike again.. and who!! Dennis Griffin writes characters you come to care about and you'll find yourself rooting for the good guys and worrying when they get into danger. The ending will really blow you away!! I can't wait for Dennis Griffin to write his next one.

    Full of suspense

    I give this book a 5 star rating! It is full of suspense. Although it is fiction, serial killers are a part of today's society. Therefore this story is very realistic! It's an easy reading book, but very difficult to put down. A must read book!

    Griffin Does It Again!

    Dennis Grffin's 'Killer In Pair-A-Dice' is a must read book. This spine tingler is something that you just can't put down until you've reached the end. Griffin has proven himself again with this; his third book. The characters are very clear and precise. He gives you the feeling of being an observer throughout the story but never revealing the killer to the bitter end. Griffin hints at possible suspects making you think you know who the criminal is, until another twist and turn occurs, thus making you believe it could be someone else. Griffin has made this fictional tale seem true to life, with the scary thing being, it really could happen !

    Rape/Murder in LasVegas Valley By Serial Killer Alarms Community

    Author Dennis Griffin brings to the readers another sensational believable story centered in the Las Vegas Valley. The serial rapist and murderer claims his victims in this famous adult playground of the world. Constant pressure for a speedy apprehension is brought to bear by politicians and feminist groups. The killer is intelligent and strikes at times under the noses of the authorities as though he was proding and playing games with lead Detective Steve Garneau and his partner. The media stirs the pot of excitement by printing a story that hastens the pursuit of the hunted by the hunter. This story brings the reader face to face with the dynamics of a serial rapist/murderer and what makes him tick. I have read the book twice. It is well written by Griffin who knows the Las Vegas Valley. Detective Garneau matches wits with this scary perpetrator and the suspense takes you on a ride that you will not soon forget. A Real Page Turner --Read it you'll like it. One word of advice before you start the read be sure to lock the door.
