A FUN READ
"I'm not really much of a murder mystery fan, but Heartless Cruelty was a thoroughly enjoyable read. The fact that I got to read it by candlelight (during the Hurricane Sandy power outage) enhanced a number of the "dark and stormy night" scenes."
MR. BACHMAN: A NEW TYPE OF SLEUTH
"A fascinating new type of sleuth, Mr. Bachman, helps solve this mystery. He's a high school English teacher, beloved by his students, and ready to help a mixed up teen find himself. There are many chills and spills along the way. I couldn't put it down. The New Jersey shore comes to life with Mr. Bachman. Can't wait for his next escapade."
TERRIFIC READ. A MUST FOR JERSEY SHORE FANS.
"Heartless Cruelty is a terrific read. Fast-paced, well-plotted and cleverly written, it evokes the dark side of the Jersey shore of the 1980s - not the Jersey shore of sun, sand and surf, but the darkness, cold, squalor, and corruption of the shore in winter. Mr. Bachman, the lead character, is an English teacher at Atlantis High whose students love him because he treats them with honesty and sensitivity without dumbing down what he does in class. Concerned about Jason, one of his students, Bachman stumbles upon the dead body of Jason's father while making a call at Jason's home. The mystery of who killed Jason's father, together with Bachman's relationship with Jason's stunningly beautiful pro bono lawyer, propels the plot as the scenes shift from the classroom to the Mayor's office, from good cops to bad cops, from honesty and justice to heartless cruelty. Strongly recommended."
