    One thought on “Dangerous Times”

    1. What I liked about this book:the humor-bad things were happening and the situation looked so hopeless and then unexpectedly, something made me laugh!How I connected to the characters-absolutely hated Frank and Lisa (Emily too) and almost stopped reading when Kirk "died"!I could feel the desperation (Hicks) and the loneliness (Bev)-written beautifully.I also like how the characters realized their error and tried to put their life back togethere ending was well done.What I didn't like:the beginnin [...]

    3. The descriptions of the character’s driving, streets, turns and buildings, or the settings in which he finds himself helps set the tone and mood of the story. Frank Moore is direct and brutal, yet I found him believable and even sympathetic to a degree because he does some of the acts that might cross our minds to do: kill the unrepentant druggie and rid the world of one more useless drain on society. Sometimes the detachment left me drifting, or the seeming randomness of thought, but it was a [...]

    4. In life we make decision on a daily basis. Some of those decisions benefit us and some of those decisions could have been thought through a little better, but ultimately we made the best decision we thought at the time. What would happen if our decision was based on the actions of others, would the outcome be different or would you make the same decision? Should you throw caution to the wind just because it is someone else pulling the strings or should you still use a level head and make the bes [...]

    5. Dangerous Times is the story of two men from different walks of life. Their lives intertwine, which could mean danger for the both of them. This was a really good book full of twists and turns. It was unpredictable, a detail I enjoy when reading. There were times when the added details made for boring reading. I also found myself getting lost in certain spots because of the story going back and forth. Overall, this was an enjoyable book.

    6. Book ReviewImpressionsI went on a ride along yesterday with a man who killed for pleasure. This was a reading journey I’ll not forget. I found it hard but fascinating sharing the thoughts of an unapologetic soul who found his pleasure using blade to slice flesh. Women seemed to be his game of choice. The prettier the better. It would perhaps be easier to accept if this twisted mind was housed in an unattractive body and face. Perhaps some mindless being brought to ruthlessness because of a tor [...]

    12. Truth is very often said to be stranger than fiction. Well, If there is any truth to that statement then I shudder to think of the strange possibilities of real life. With that being said, the title of my most recently read novel, Dangerous Times is an understatement. Dangerous Times takes readers to a dimension that is 10 levels past dangerous. Phillip Frey has created a deceitful world of criminal activity, backstabbing and ruthless characters so deviously crafted, I found myself reading with [...]

    13. First let me say, I thoroughly enjoyed this book fact, I read it all in one sitting, which means I didn't go to sleep until 5 am! I know, I know, shame on meI just couldn't put it down!Now, in the beginning of this story we are introduced to Frank, and are immediately tuned in to the fact that Frank isn't a nice guy. Frank, as it turns out, loves blood, and he seems to enjoy being the one spilling it, even more. Don't forget about Frank, because he is the center point of this entire story!Furthe [...]

    14. It is possible I have a misunderstanding of the crime thriller genre as this book was not at all what I expected it to be; however, I don’t think that is it. Anyone that reads this novel will be able to tell it is a book about crime as this is a theme that spills over almost every page. As to the thriller part, I felt as though I was on a roller coaster ride so perhaps that was the “thrill” side of things. There are a large number of people thrown into the story, the perspective of the sto [...]

    15. This thriller caught my interest from the beginning, perhaps because it took me around San Pedro, California, which I remember fondly. It contained all the expected elements -- goriness, sex, a bit of social exposure and more.I must say that I felt attached to the main character, Frank, in spite of his criminal mind. For some reason I came to think of him as a criminal with as much geniality as bad luck.I also appreciated the author's concern about the hostilities between Whites, Blacks and Hisp [...]

    16. I discovered this book among those in the Masquerade Crew Review Club. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review. This book is a Psychological ThrillerFrank, an errand boy for the mob, is seeking out a way to escape his current life. John Kirk, an auto mechanic, has a past that he'd rather forget. What John doesn't know is that Frank has plans for him that have nothing to do with repairing a vehicle.I enjoyed this story because in some ways it was like Face Off and in others A Com [...]

    17. Where do I even begin? Phillip Frey's Dangerous Time is one book I could not put down. This crime thriller kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time. The characters are so well developed that you feel for them and want the best outcome in all situations. Frey displays a great skill in keeping the reader second guessing on what's to come. Not to give anything away in the storyline,but I absolutely adored the characters: Kirk and Ty for some reason they just completely made the novel come ali [...]

    18. This book plays out like a movie for your brain. It pulls you in , and with each word you can see the scene page by page. This is quite a read, especially before bed at night.
