DANGEROUS TIMES is a multicultural crime-thriller with the pull of the unpredictable. This book is not for the squeamish.
John Kirk wants to get out of San Pedro and leave his troublesome relationships behind—troubles that fall by the wayside when fate throws him a wicked curve.
Psychopath Frank Moore has found his look-alike, John Kirk, a close-enough double who will be his scapegoat. Frank switches their identities and fingerprints in government databases, then murders his way to the cash he needs to bring his plan to fruition. A plan which will drown goodness and grace in a river of blood.
Frank Moore arrives in San Pedro. Quite the actor, he hides out with the money at John Kirk’s place, posing as Kirk, hair cut and dyed to match. Those close to Kirk accept Frank’s phony look-alike story, primarily because of the cash he proffers. Frank has a good time performing sex and murder—until the women in Kirk’s life bring Frank the unforeseen.
While Kirk, thought to be Frank Moore, is on run. He is being pursued by those whom the cash was stolen from, along with a rogue police detective who wants the money for himself. A condition that will send the innocent John Kirk through 48-hours of betrayal, violence and murder—while Frank Moore will learn the meaning of "The best laid plans…"

The characters are real and believable. Great convoluted plot. Terrific for action addicts.
Where do I even begin? Phillip Frey's Dangerous Time is one book I could not put down. This crime thriller kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time. The characters are so well developed that you feel for them and want the best outcome in all situations. Frey displays a great skill in keeping the reader second guessing on what's to come. Not to give anything away in the storyline,but I absolutely adored the characters: Kirk and Ty for some reason they just completely made the novel come alive to me. If you wish to experience a well-written crime thriller novel I definitely recommend Dangerous Times. This novel is short and starts off in the middle of action. There is no down time in this novel as every page, every word is dedicated to solving the case. Enjoy!
What a ride! Mr. Frey really kept me guessing and wondering what was going to happen next. A perfect villian. For crime thriller aficionados this is a must read. More, please!!!!
