Apaches is a dark, gritty story. At times you will find yourself flinching or gritting your teeth at the abominations that some of the characters perform upon their victims. The author uses great detail and has a way of keeping you entranced in the story, always wanting more. The basic premise is simple and one that has been told dozens of times. The pace is beyond fast, which is good and bad. You want more and I felt like the flow was too fast. The story went from one plot to the second major plot too quickly. Carcattera is a good author who is able to keep you fascinated with the darkest possible scenarios. I look forward to his future work.

The BAD guys & women are SO awful that they make make the VERY flawed, semi-heroic "good" characters look angelic. Although some scenes (e.g., the AZ "battle to the death") are ridiculously over the top, you definitely get your money's worth tenfold in this tsunt, fast-paced, noir crime thriller! aj west

Apaches is one of the greatest books I've ever read. Very emotional and gory but you'll be glad you read it. It gets you up close to the characters. Apaches makes you realize how sick some people are and how thankful you are to have brave heroes out there to stop them.

I read this book thinking every character will have a near death experience and then live happily ever after. . . like 99.9% of books out there.How much wronger can a person get.This book makes u think. . . and I mean seriously think.If u are in the need of a book that can wrap u up and never let u go GET THIS!!!!This bopk will wrap u up in the life of 4 cops, 1 bomb expert,a phone tapper, a 12 year old girl, 2 twisted kidnappers, and a notorius drug lord. Be aware though this isn't your every day book.U may find yourself up at 3:00A.M reading to figure out who'll get shot in chapter 12's gun fight. . . but then again that's just Apaches's magic.

An absorbing novel about a group of former cops who operate outside the law in order to stop a very dangerous criminal. Satisfying in part because this group doesn't have to worry about police procedure and protecting the rights of criminals. Very graphic but equally good; whether you love it or hate it, it will stick in your mind long after you put it down which is what all great novels should do

Carcaterra is a gifted crime fiction writer. The characters are larger-than-life and the plot is riveting. I read it in a single night...and enjoyed every minute of it. If you like crime fiction, then you'll love this book!

APACHES is brimming with tragic heroes and dastardly villains. Carcaterra has crafted a true masterpiece of modern crime fiction.

Lorenzo Carcaterra is a great author, and he created a great novel with Apaches. Here's a little about it. Boomer, Dead-Eye, Rev.Jim, Mrs.Columbo, Geronimo, Pins. They all were cops, the best at what they did. But they were taken out of the job they loved too early. But when Boomer looks for a kidnapped girl with Dead-Eye, they find the girl, but stumble on to something bigger. Which brings these cops back onto the street, doing the thing they do best. Fight the bad guys, and protect the innocent.
