Silent Echo

Silent EchoI was reminded about Kindle First today when I received notice for the December book.  So, first things first, here’s the review for the November book I selected, Silent Echo by J. R. Rain.

Typically, I read books in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre with some occasional Drama and Adventure books for a change up.

Silent Echo, a mystery, looked like the best book available in the November Kindle First list.  The book follows a private investigator that needs to track what turns out to be a serial killer.  His task is complicated by the fact that he has aids-related cancer and is in the final stages of his life.

It was a quick read and an interesting story.  But the “dying thing” was reinforced over and over and – well you get the point.  Thankfully, the protagonist was able to get the bad guy and clear up a lot of story lines.

Looking at J. R. Rain’s website, he has a full publishing schedule in the coming months.

  1. My favorite genre is SF/Fantasy as well, but I also really like mysteries and then also cheesy humor mysteries (like Janet Evanovich). This one sounds a little depressing, but I may check it out anyway. Thanks for the review!

  2. Thanks Sue. It is a touch on the depressing side. Perhaps if the reader knew going in that there was going to be a heavy undercurrent of death it would have been different.

    But I think this is really accomplishing the intent of Kindle First — I read a book I wouldn’t have read otherwise. All in all, a nice first month.
