A well written page turner that became hard for me to put down. No gratuitous gore, sex or foul language either. I highly recommend!

This book was an intense mystery. The author warns it's a slow start but I sure don't remember that start. I love detective Gino, although he was so sad I wanted to hug him. Some language and the author paints a vivid story of violence, mystery readers will love it.

Suspenseful, many "surprises". Great character development - some to like and some to dislike. Plot has several unexpected twists. Kept my attention.

This is the best book I have read in a very long time. I did not want to put it down. I love that the main character isn't perfect but has heart as well as flaws. Loved it!

I love cop shows and mysteries. This was a very good one and hard to guess who the real bad guy was. Enjoy reading it and finding out "who done it "!

Well written, fast paced. This story kept my attention from the very first page and the ending was both surprising with a twist I would never had imagined.

In "Necessary Decisions: A Gino Cataldi Mystery," author Giacommo Giamatteo places Detective Cataldi in a complex entanglement of crime, greed and guilt. Cops, criminals and innocent people clash in ways that will make you wonder how much fact is in this piece of crime fiction. Giamatteo filled this three-hundred eighty page novel to the brim with internal and external struggles, quotable dialogue, acts of compassion and flurries of action. The story jumps situation to situation in a way that’s intuitive. The author did a great job of arranging the chapters so that you can easily conceptualize how the multiple predicaments are taking place simultaneously. The chapters are even in word count, which makes its easy to gauge how much time it will take to get to the next stopping point. This is a good thing since it’s hard to stop reading this book mid-chapter due to the complexity of this story. Since the fast pace never lets up, you could easily finish this story in a five- to six-hour reading session. The author wrote Cataldi’s parts in first person and the rest in third person. When Detective Gino Cataldi is the focus of the action, the reader gets to see how Cataldi’s past and present affects his thought processes and movements in this tricky game of cops and robbers. This makes you feel like you’re Cataldi’s shadow, trailing him through the blurry lines he tries to draw between his personal demons and his professional life. The cast of characters are so rich and individually distinct that you’ll be instantly pulled into their worlds of quirks and instincts. You have various law enforcement personnel, teenagers, parents, crooks, millionaires, etc. that make this complex story realistic and engaging. There aren’t any fluff characters nor filler words in Necessary Decisions. The author did a great job of making an extreme situation realistic and human. This is a story that you have to read twice to really unravel all of the intricacies, plot twists and turns. There are at least five storylines, big and small, happening concurrently, yet the story doesn’t feel rushed or overwhelming. Instead, every single little detail is relevant to something important to the story. It’s impossible to predict the ending and how the events during the story lead to the conclusion. The author made this story an intriguing puzzle of people, places and harsh realities.

Giacomo has written exciting book. His story has so many twists you are wondering who the criminals are? You will not be able to put the book down from the first page until the end. Love Giacomo's books and can't wait for the next one.

Though a life-long reader, I have never written a book review. But this book was such a compelling, fast-paced read, it was difficult to put down. The character development is so complete, with flaws & strengths, memories & mojo, amid a good mix of suspense and drama. I felt like I was in the room, in the car, in the minds of the detective ~ right up to the satisfying ending. Great read!!!
