Praise for The Horry County Murders... "Peter Warren's experiences as a criminal investigator are clearly captured in this exciting new book. You cannot help but feel like you are there with Paul and Bobby Ray as they attempt to solve this series of murders that confront them." -Colonel Kenneth H. Kirschner (Ret.), Connecticut Department of Public Safety

"It is great to see the characters of Paul Waring and Bobby Ray Jenkins back from Warren's first novel Confederate Gold and Silver. No one is more qualified to write a murder mystery than Warren. His unique experience and these great characters make this book a real page turner from the start." -Dr. Mark Foster, The University of Georgia

"A deadly combination of murder, drugs, criminals of all sorts, and great suspense. A well-written murder mystery which is a must read! Very, very entertaining!" -SAC Jeffrey Brandau (Ret.), Kansas Bureau of Investigation

"Many people set out to try and write an exciting novel or two, but few succeed as well as this author has. Warren's career as a state trooper prepared him to have a second one as a great storyteller. This is such an occasion! This is a GREAT follow-up to Confederate Gold and Silver." -Major Timothy Baughman (Ret.), New Mexico State Police

Paul Waring, a retired state trooper from Connecticut, is recruited by his friend, Captain Bobby Ray Jenkins, from the Georgetown County Sheriff's Department, to help solve a series of brutal murders that continue to occur between Myrtle Beach and Georgetown. Can Paul's expertise help stop the murders before the killings continue? Why has Georgetown been selected as the dumping ground for each of the victims?

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!  I recently read The Horry County Murders after a friend of mine recommended it to me. It was a recommendation that I'm glad I followed up on. Situated in South Carolina, the author has woven a story together that includes several murders, drug dealers, assaults, and various other criminal acts, while at the same time introducing us to his wonderfully described cast of characters. I found this book to be well written, full of excitement and drama, and one which easily kept my attention from start to finish. The ending of the story (part of which was totally unexpected to me) was just the type of climax that readers of murder mysteries will enjoy. It was easily one of the BEST BOOKS I have read recently. I'm already looking forward to another book from this author.

I have just finished reading Mr. Warren's latest novel, The Horry County Murders. As an avid reader of this type of genre, I had trouble putting his book down as I found it engaging, exciting, and very suspenseful. While I see from several of the other comments that have been posted how much others have enjoyed the many scenes that have been staged within the book, I found Warren's use and description of the various characters (especially Richard Melkin and the Frazier brothers) the best part of the storyline. (Bringing back Paul and Bobby Ray from his first book was a pleasure to see as well.) I also loved the author's use of cliffhangers at the end of many chapters to be an excellent way of keeping my interest as he moved on to other parts of the story. A MUST READ FOR THOSE FOLKS WHO ENJOY A GREAT MURDER MYSTERY! Highly Recommended!!

As a retired Criminal Investigator, I couldn’t wait to rack my brain trying to solve this case with more twist and turns than a corkscrew. The reader is taken on a thrilling journey of murder and mayhem as the body count rises and the suspects are plenty. Ride along with Paul Waring, a retired Connecticut State Trooper and Bobby Ray Jenkins as they and a local task force try to figure out the classic who done it. The ending threw me for a loop so you’ll just have to see what I am talking about. This book is an action packed page-turner and is gripping from the first page to the last. Peter Warren continues to bring great characters to his books like Confederate Gold and The Journey North and The Horry County Murders is no exception. Looking forward to your next book Pete.

I just started reading Mr Warren's latest book, the Horry County Murders and how found it very engaging. As written in his overview from the start, he makes the reader feel like they are part of the investigation team.  I have read Mr Warren's last two books and cannot wait to find out how his latest book ends.
