MISCUE by Glen Allison

A child is stolen in a twisted city A broken SEAL chases redemption, one step ahead of darkness. Can you keep up? From the shadows of the French Quarter, Forte must track down the killer of an abortion doctor and find the doctor's kidnapped child. The trail takes Forte from the Big Easy to a tropical paradise and threatens to derail his life again. MISCUE is the first of the Forte trilogy.

Long Description
An abortion doctor has been murdered in the Garden District. To be honest, that news ordinarily wouldn't bother Al Forte, a former SEAL. He has has hands full just staying clean and sober. But when the doctor's young daughter is kidnapped by the killer, it gets Forte's attention. The trail leads Forte from the Big Easy to the Belize island of Ambergris Cay with more twists than a swamp moccasin. In the end, what he discovers threatens to crash his day-by-day stability once again.

MISCUE is a “a quick, easy and fun escape that's tightly paced, told with authority and authenticity” that “puts you right on a French Quarter balcony with a black cat named Boo and its well-worn owner, Al Forte.” The Midwest Book Review calls MISCUE “a straight-ahead, entertaining whodunit with enough twists and turns to confuse the most astute student of detective novels.” The Review says “Allison doesn't hesitate to comment on his own version of social justice, which lends grit and realism to a character the reader can't help cheering for. Al Forte is a flawed but resilient personality who exudes strength even in the midst of his own self-doubt, which lends credibility and a sense of justice fulfilled when he finally cracks the case. His dialogue is stunning.”

Glen C. Allison rescues readers from boredom daily through the exploits of Forte, an addict and ex-SEAL in New Orleans who recovers stolen children. Forte rises from the darkness of his self-inflicted misery to protect endangered innocents in his safe house hidden in the shadows of the French Quarter. A simpler justice guides him through the hard-edged backdrop of the Big Easy to give suspense readers a harrowing taste of this city's secret evils. Forte finds purpose in the protecting the small ones and realizes redemption in the most unlikely places.

MISCUE is book one of the Forte Suspense Trilogy, followed by NETBLUE, and the soon-to-be-releaaed SNAFU.

A fast paced, enjoyable adventure. Has a pro-life, anti-abortion slant.

It's so hard to know which books are worth even looking at I wasn't disappointed by this one. Kept my interest and saw me through a few waiting rooms at the doctor office. That's all I need.

A very suspensful and action-filled part. Every time I stopped, it left me with one question- what is going to happen next? Another conveinence to this novel is it free!

If you like a book that moves right along, that grabs your attention from the first page until you devour the last, then give "Miscue" a try. You'll enjoy shadowing the very human Al Forte to interesting locations as well as trying to keep pace with him in solving the riddles of this clever & timely tale.

This is an awsome, "can't-put-this-book-down", mystery!!! I kept wanting to read the next page just to see what happened next!! I would keep reading even when I was falling asleep! Then, it had an unbelievable ending!! Usually, novels don't keep my interest but this one definitely did. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to read and even those who don't!!

'Miscue' is one of those novels that grabs you from the very first and doesn't let you go until you have devoured the last page. You are caught up along with it's flawed hero in solving the case, looking for clues yourself in how this will all come down. I recommend 'Miscue' if you enjoy a clean read that is intriguing, timely & a real page turner.

A good read. I Found Miscue to be a very enjoyable read set in New Orleans which is familiar to me. I walked the streets of the Quarter with Al Forte in his quest to find the killer. Since I am a brand new Christian I found the author's ability to colorfully portray his characters and use plenty of dialog without the use of profanity particularly appealing. I am looking forward to the next Al Forte Mystery.

Enjoyable read with few editing errors for a free book. Corrections are littke things, i.e. Glocks don't have external safeties to disengage and Navy SeAL tattoos will have a trident prominent in them even if it is of an eagle or sealion. Just little things, but to those who know they leap out at you.

In Miscue, sleuth Al Forte's humanistic character traits have a slight edge as he is challenged by the hypocrictically conflicting thoughts and values of the equally equipted and trained killer(s)who are driven by vengence and greed. The reader rides the rollercoaster of life's ups and downs as(s)he ventures through flavorful New Orleans and it's characters. Friendship and the reflection of values seen in daily life and socially impacting work make a statement. Short and easily readible, the book is well-written, captivating and intriguing to the end. I like Allison's style! I like a story that says something between the lines. The next Al Forte mystery should be a good one.
