23 July 2013
On a beautiful winter evening, Phoenix attorney Beverly Thompson is snatched from her home and her husband is brutally murdered. Four more victims quickly fall to the same killer and the case is assigned to homicide detective Sean Richardson. Now Sean must somehow stop an elusive killer with no idea who he is or where he might strike next. And unfortunately, time is running out on Beverly's desperate struggle to survive long enough to see her husband's killer captured and brought to justice.

More About the Author


James L. Thane was born and raised in northwestern Montana. He holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Montana and a Ph.D. in History from the University of Iowa. His principal area of specialization was the history of the American West. He has worked as a janitor, a dry cleaner, an auto parts salesman, a sawyer, an ambulance driver and a college professor.

Always an avid reader, Thane was introduced to the world of crime fiction at a tender age by his father and mother who were fans of Erle Stanley Gardner and Agatha Christie, respectively. He began his own writing career by contributing articles on intramural basketball games to his high school newspaper.

While working as an historian, Thane wrote one non-fiction book and a number of magazine and journal articles. He also wrote and produced two television series for PBS affiliate, WQPT. "No Place To Die" is his first novel.

In his off-duty hours, Jim enjoys reading, music, and movies. He also likes hiking, golf, and tennis, though he is, sadly, much better at hiking than he is at golf and tennis. He now divides his time between Scottsdale, Arizona; Lakeside, Montana; and Moline, Illinois.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 20 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whilst this book was a good interesting read it did not warrant a five star rating perhaps more three and a half plus.
The story is built around McClain who had previously been imprisoned for a crime he did not commit and has recently been released following new evidence. The years he was incarcerated have made him very angry and now he is looking for revenge.

3.0 out of 5 stars FAIR TO MIDDLING 2 May 2014
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
NPD was alright. Too procedural and not enough action for a 'tec thriller. The prose style (pompous moi!?) is very superficial and the main characters are one dimensional. In conclusion, I wouldn't bother; there's far better out there.

It started well but then there was repetition and it went on too long and I began to lose interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacked depth 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good story and characters but didn't grip me as it could have, I think because the main victim was a bit one dimensional.. Could have explored her psyche and ordeal in a bit more depth.

Opening chapter was engaging, thereafter it was an okay read, nothing really wrong with it, it just did not excite me and the ending was straight forward, no twists or plot turns.

Fantastic, gripping story which I couldn't put down. Great end to the book with all lose ends tied up, rather than questions left unanswered.
