What People are Saying About This
Without Warning opens with what looks like another ripped-from-the-headlines instance of a disgruntled employee 'going postal,' and slaughtering his co-workers. Right away, however, we're hit with an element of mystery that is sustained throughout the book, mystery that filters through the machinations of corporate America, family, love and ambition. Tom McCrory's characters are well-rounded, believably human and caught up in the maelstrom of each other's lives. GREAT READING START TO FINISH.
author of "The Man Who Just Didn't Care"
From the moment I picked it up, I was hooked! Tom McCrory pulls you in and doesn't let go. McCrory's cinematic vision is flawlessly executed. He had me guessing to the end...again. Without Warning is definitely the best book I've read in the last several years.

In Huntington Beach, California someone enters the office of Payroll Computation Services and kills eighteen employees. The media immediately knee jerks to disgruntled employee, but Detective Bart Starcevich, who leads the inquiries into the mass murders sees no obvious link as such though the few survivors of the Orange County branch of PCS remain the prime suspects. There is nothing at the crime scene that proves useful and no one was left alive as a witness to the slaughter. Bart and his team feel stymied as public pressure to catch the killer grows. --- FBI Profiler Tracy Conway is assigned to do her magic to help Detective Starcevich narrow down the suspect list. The two cops look closely at three individuals, the daughter of one of the victims Julie Albright, sales representative Denny Lydick and accounts payable manager Carl Strayhorn. When Starcevich finds the murder weapons inside a storage locker rented by Strayhorn, he books him for murder. However, his Federal profiler has doubts as something does not add up right and Starcevich also has concerns as the evidence suddenly appeared like magic too easily pulling a dead rabbit out of a hat after going nowhere. --- Police procedural fans will gain immense pleasure from this terrific mass murder investigative thriller. The story line is action-packed, but centers on two law enforcement officials who struggle with a case that seems to have no motive, suddenly appear to have solved the homicides, but filled with doubts that something is off kilter that they do not see. WITHOUT WARNING readers including this reviewer of this fine tale will seek other suspense laden works by author Tom McCrory (see COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL).--- Harriet Klausner
This straightforward, satisfying mystery focuses on a brutal workplace crime scene, and a veteran detective who is responsible for unraveling the mystery of whodunit. Rich with authentic detail, and the author's plainspoken style serves the material well. A great, quick read.
Without Warning is meticulously crafted and compelling look at a gruesome multiple murder that takes place in a corporate office. The author's well-rounded characters and their stories are intertwined, as the reader, along with Detective Starcevich, try to guess who did it in this breezy read. Highly recommended!
