Overview

One False Move by Alex Kava

"A killer read." -The Lincoln Star Journal

One fatal mistake, and there's no turning back.

Melanie Starks and her seventeen-year-old son, Charlie, have been running one con job or another for as long as she can remember. Worried that Charlie is starting to enjoy it, Melanie is ready to start over. Then her brother, Jared, reappears in her life.

Released on a technicality, Jared Barnett is just out of prison and feeling invincible. He has the perfect plan to rob a local bank, but he needs Melanie and Charlie's help. Feeling she owes her brother, Melanie agrees.

Within seconds, shots are fired. Jared and Charlie race out of the bank with no money, leaving four people dead. When they refuse to tell Melanie what happened in those few desperate moments, she realizes her brother and her son have formed a silent bond.

Now they're on the run, and there's nothing to lose.

"Kava delivers a fast, dark, nail-biter with an extra special shocker saved for last." -Portsmouth Herald

I love everything Alex Kava writes. the characters jump off the pages and non stop action keeps the pages turning.

First of all the book is one of my favorites, and I'm a constant reader. Second, the characters' changes are nothing short of perfect. If you want to read a good book and you enjoy thrillers then this is a book for you.

What a joke - 30 pages and the first 10 were not even the story. And what was the story? Usually I love this author but this was a waste.

It is difficult to rate a book based on 30 pages-where is the rest of it? I haved enjoyed Ms. Kava's work so I will put blame on Nook for the "rest of the story"

B&N is only selling you 1st two chapters out of a 69 chapter book. $1.99 is no bargain for 2 chapters. FORMATTED incorrectly as NOOK Book.

If the 'f' word were to be taken out of the english language this author couldn't write at all.

Although brief in length, this is the worst effort produced by Alex Kava. She usually has better character development and plot lines. This was too predictable and superficial...Read A Perfect Evil which the best book that Kava has written to date.

There is a difference between 'not guilty' and 'innocent'. Crossing that fine line releases Jared Barret from prison, returning him to his sister's life, drawing Melanie and her son Charlie into a crime spree that results in murder. Now the three are on the run, guilty of murder, bank robbery, and hostage taking. Behind them, the police search for the truth, and nothing but fear lies ahead. ...................... **** Going in a new direction from her Maggie O'Dell stories, Alex Kava takes readers on a tense and wild ride. Fans of Grisham or Turrow will appreciate this new dimension to her writing. ****

Lawyer Max Kramer bribes an eyewitness to recant testimony so that a homicidal conviction is overturned, freeing Jared Barnett. Detective Tommy Pakula and attorney Grace Wenninghoff know that Jared is a serial killer. Jared visits his sister Melody and his seventeen year old nephew Charlie. While Melody is un happy to see her brother, Charlie worships his uncle. Jared informs his two relatives that they will rob a bank. Jared and Charlie enter the bank and shots are fired. The two men race out with Charlie having blood all over his clothing. Tommy receives a call that a bank robbery turned violent. He calls Grace to tell her there are five dead at the bank. A sheriff and a police copter chase the criminals, but a storm halts their efforts. Melody crashes the car, but the trio walks to the nearby state park cabins where Jared shoots Andrew Kane grazing his head. While the police give chase, Jared begins a murder spree with Andrew held hostage. The key to this exhilarating police procedural crime thriller is the powerful cast whether the character is a cop, lawyer, murderer, writer, etc. They all come across as real and their interactions genuine. This depth makes the chase more exhilarating though quite bloody (innocent people are killed) as the audience sees it from the perspective of various participants. Some fans will feel a letdown with the final showdown; albeit realistic, as no High Noon occurred (instead more like Bakshi¿s Wizards). Still, readers will enjoy this terse chase thriller.

Let me start by saying that I love to read Alex Kava's books. I have read them all with the exception of 'Whitewash'. I also think it's great that she writes books other than books from the Maggie O'Dell series - Just not this one. As always Kava's writing style is strong. The characters development is not bad, but the plot adds no uniqueness to the story. Generally picking up and reading an Alex Kava book is a fantastic decision, but in this case, it would be one false move. ...
