Book Title: One Deadly Sister Author: Rod Hoisington Publisher: Entera Books ISBN: 9780615298528 Reviewed by Michele Tater for Review The Book The book "One Deadly Sister", I felt is a murder mystery at its best. The author takes you on a who-done-it ride which includes the introduces of several characters, which can be likable as well as unlikable. These people all have their own dirty laundry and guilty pleasures that play out with every turn of the page. It is also a look at how a innocent man can be so mix-up in the lives of others that he is arrested for a crime he did not commit, or did he. Even though there are several characters in this story, they are skillfully developed and can be easy followed. The main character Ray seems to be the man with the worst luck ever. I felt bad that he has was being used as a pawn in everyone's game where he had no game in anything. Even the police department, along with the state attorney, just wanted to nail Ray's coffin and be done with it. Since I is have worked in several law firms in the past and have a Paralegal Degree , I was able to identify with Ray's sister Sandy. She came across as one tough cookie that would not take stuff from anyone, including the law enforcement individuals who were handling her brothers case. There were also characters I loved to hate, for example, Loraine who thought she could wiggle her way out of anything, and believe me she tries a lot. I would recommend "One Deadly Sister" to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with many plot twists and of course some turns added for a good measure of suspense. Although I was trying to figure the who did it part, many things were not what they seemed. So you really have to read the book all the way through. No fair peeking to the end either, its well worth the wait. There is brief sexual content, mostly pg rated. It also has a great and realistic story line that will keep you guessing till the end.

I have not had high hopes for most of the free books, and this one pleasantly surprised me. I liked the little twists and turns - just when you thought it was all wrapped up in a little bow, new information is provided. As soon as I finished this book, I bought the next one in the series.

This book was somewhat hard to get into, but then got better and was really suspenseful.

I didn't get too far into this book before I had to stop. This is one of those books that makes you wonder why you're wasting your time reading it, you start to think it must get better somewhere, and get to the end disappointed that there wasn't any improvement - why did you waste your time again? The estranged brother is so annoyingly clueless that it is impossible to read his dialogue without wanting to scream "GET A CLUE!!!" Can't imagine that there's any real point to the drivel - there are better books to read.

I have no idea why the rating for this book is so high. The story was predictable and the writing was just plain bad. All of the characters had the same way of speaking and the same personality, which is just bad writting! The story also had a noir style to it, but it seemed forced. At least it was free?

Sandra Reid character keeps you on the edge of your seat once she hits Florida streets to prove her brother Rays innocense. Starts slow and becomes really good once the plot thickens

I found this author by accident when I was looking for books under $5.00.  To my pleasant  surprise I found the book to be creative and entertaining.  Lots of twist and turns where think you have it figured it out but not quite out but your'e not quite sure.  All and all a fun read.  Of course this meant I had to buy all his other books.
