Product Description

Product Description

Clayton Trace is the head pro at an upscale mountain country club. Most people would look at his lifestyle and say that he has it all. His thirty-something girl companion is tall, pretty and appears to not care about the other women in his life. He drives a great car, lives steps away from a championship golf course and is respected and admired by the members of the country club and the citizens of the small community called Mountain Greens. Unfortunately, he also has a target on his back. Somewhere in his past he made a mistake and ticked the wrong person off. That person now wants him dead and will go to any length to see that happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting to the very end! 3 July 2014

Though an avid fan of a good suspense novel, I’d never read anything by Mike McManus. I picked it up because of the reviews; I was intrigued by promises of suspense mixed with romance and dramatic fiction, with a country club backdrop, which seemed a hard marriage to strike. I wasn’t disappointed. Riveting to the very end, with memorable and unique characters, I will definitely be reading more from this author as he has created a highly-entertaining, remarkably unique and well-written novel.

The reader of this book is signing themselves up for a fast read, a heart-pounding roller coaster ride through vivid descriptions of what it must be like to have someone want you dead. The suspense of this tale will stay with you long after you finish the last page and so will the characters. Penny and Clayton are so well written, they climb off the page into life and won’t soon be forgotten. This book is brilliant. Very well done, Mr. McManus. I’ll be checking out your other books very soon.

I have long been a fan of a good suspense novel, and ‘Death is Not an Option’ by Mike McManus is one of the best I have read this year. With a little bit of something for everyone, I have to say that I am waiting diligently for the author’s next release.

First of all, McManus’ writing style is concise and packed with characterization that pushes the plot forward. In truth, this book is really a character-driven novel, and so this becomes more important as we learn about the stories that they face.

The characters themselves are memorable. Penny and Clayton, the main protagonists of the book, always make me want to learn more about them. Moreover, the way they change throughout the book, all the way until the culmination, is an absolute joy.

The plot-line in this story is enthralling. I read this book in only three sittings, and given that it is a rather hefty book, that qualifies it as being a true ‘page-turner’. It starts off simple, but quickly becomes complex enough that the mystery is something the reader just needs to solve.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense, romance, and all-around well crafted dramatic fiction. I loved it, and I hope to read more from Mike McManus soon.
5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense & Romance, what more could you ask for!!! 23 Nov 2013

I have read this author's two other books, (Framed But Not Forgotten & Separate Truth), and although I loved them, this is definitely his best work so far. Suspenseful right from the start, with just the right amount of romance and charm to captivate any mystery/thriller reader. The characters are well developed and entertaining. The plot is extremely well written, weaving you in and out until you can't put it down until you know the ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, just know that once you start reading it , you will have a hard time putting it down!

l enjoyed the charecters in this story. l kept wondering if Trace could keep himself from being killed long enough to realize he had a real keeper in Penny. l liked the way the story unwound on the hunting trip...l had Craig pegged but couldn't see how Roman would flush out....l was very satisfied with the outcome.
