Vesuvius based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I am an avid book reader. I enjoy reading crime novels, as well as those books that have a flair for espionage. For thirty-six years I've witnessed the other side of human existence - every day transforming from street back into home life and back again. I am glad that all I do now is read about it. I just finished reading Alex's latest crime novel, "Vesuvius". This is my synopsis and thoughts: From experience, I knew I was in for another wild ride. A troubled police detective, Alejandro "Ali" Castillo, is haunted by his own psyche - battling each day. Although he is an outstanding detective, he has many obstacles to overcome. Busy hunting a serial killer who is actively tallying-up more souls instead of looking into his own, "Ali" throws the dice. Both with his life and that of his new-found friend. The storyline begins with a solid foundation from which Alex McDonald builds up to great heights in the end. I highly recommend "Vesuvius" to those who are both, a fan of Alex McDonald, to those who just love a good crime novel. This one will definitely get your dander up. Since I only read books which have merit, I also read author Alex McDonald's first novel, "Sawgrass". This too, was an excellent thriller with scores of twists and turns. I felt like I was on the "Cyclone" roller coaster in Coney Island. If you love "cops and robber" thrillers, you will want to place this book on your must-read list as well. Congratulations Alex. Here's to your continued success. R. Kreuter Retired
