Mr. Lashner deviates from his Victor Carl series to give us a standalone read. Kyle Burn barely knew his father and kind of freaks out at his funeral spilling his ashes. 14 years later Kyle is a blue collar worker who likes to play baseball and continually thinks he sees his father. He even scours the newspaper for men approximately his father's age who died and then goes to the funerals. Then suddenly his father's partner is murdered and the murderer approaches Kyle to find the O'Malley file for him. It seems that everyone is after the same file including a semi-mob bookie. Kyle is pursued by two detectives for the murder of his father's partner. As Kyle gets closer to the file he finds himself in more danger. I generally liked the book but what it lacks and why it is not "great" is that the file is in a fairly obvious place and you wonder why the killer didn't find it. Also, a lot of explanations later on seem too obviously regarding Kyle's father's story, the file and the people that the file can hurt. Also, there is not a lot of tenision that are in most thrillers. Even with all these flaws, it still kept my interest till the end and I was able to finish the book fairly quick.

Take Holden Caulfield - Salinger's iconic prototypical slacker from "Catcher in the Rye" - update him to present day Philadelphia, and you have William Lashner's Kyle Byrne, a disaffected societal dropout who's adept at drinking, baseball, and chasing skirts.

Kyle finds himself embroiled in a murder mystery that hinges on the actions of his dead father, the man who sired him illegitimately, and as he grapples to discover the answers to why people are dying, he also hopes to resolve his own conflicted emotions which have held him back from being able to find purpose and direction in his life.

In his first stand-alone novel, Lashner - author of the Victor Carl series - brings us a very entertaining story centered on another of life's amiable bumblers. Engaging, funny where appropriate, told with zest, the story also has a couple of real zinger plot twists (at one point, I told myself, "Whoa! I didn't see THAT one coming!").

This is a fun book. Get it; you'll enjoy it.

We've all read about those who have spent years and mega dollars searching for their birth parents. Now, a master of suspense William
Lashner presents Kyle Byrne, a young man who knew his father, a prominent attorney, but seldom saw him. All he saw was his mother patiently waiting for her lover to visit them; all he knew was the little time his father spent with him teaching him how to play baseball. This was a man who called him "boyo," Kyle assumed because he couldn't remember his real name.

Then when he was 12 years old his father died. Kyle was constrained in a gray suit and too-tight tie to attend his dad's funeral. As an adult he remembers that day well because he, his mother, and volatile Uncle Max were asked to leave the chapel and not allowed to return. They were an offense to the dead man's wife.

As an adult Kyle may have been likable and a fine baseball player, but he was also unreliable, shiftless, and totally without ambition. He drifts from day to day sometimes in an alcohol induced haze - until his father's former law partner is murdered. Kyle attends the funeral just as he has attended the funerals of many lawyers, always signing the condolence books in his father's name. He did this because "as he watched body after body of old dead lawyers being lowered into the ground, lawyers whom in all likelihood his father had known, he felt as if he were standing in for his father."

Kyle's lackadaisical life takes a turn for the worse when he becomes a suspect in the killing of his father's partner. As Kyle tries to exonerate himself he is staggered by an astounding revaluation and forced to run for his very life.

Lashner has created a score of unforgettable characters in this tale of family trials and ties: Robert Spangler is a goose bump raising toady that Anthony Hopkins could play to the hilt, and Kyle's buddy Skitch is a friend in deed and need noted for his ability to "down a pack of Mentos and half a quart of Diet Coke at the same time....."

Lashner pulled out all the stops with Blood and Bone.
