5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, emotive and dramatic, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Park (Kindle Edition)
Ricki Thomas's crime novels have always been deserving of a five star review, and having read each one, the question that has come to mind is how can you better that? But she does. No two Ricki Thomas novels are similar, except for her own unique engaging style. Black Park has not disappointed. The issue of child abuse is central to the plot and was described with sensitivity. The characters were well defined and none less so, than the main protagonist, rookie cop Toni Fowler,whose feisty temperament quickly warmed to my heart. The whole book has many facets to the story, each engaging and compelling and leaves the reader quite breathless with emotion at times.
I strongly recommend this book as a must for all avid crime readers who are looking for a refreshing break from the normal run of the mill detective crime series novels that are more commonplace on the bookshelves these days. I guarantee, like me, after this one you will want more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Thirsk!, 16 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Black Park (Kindle Edition)
Wonderful descriptive writing! A convoluted plot that Thomas handles it with ease, introducing us to a plethora of characters along the way, going about their lives without knowing that each is a thread on this master weaver's loom. Some of the colours are necessarily brighter, but none are dull. Carol, the quintessential 'invisible' mother; Sam, the 'party-hard' working girl; Toni, the beautiful, not-quite-child heroine; and what man cannot identify with Detective Thirsk: sharp as a razor at his chosen profession, but stumbling along in the dark, blind and confused, whenever circumstances force him to have dealings with anyone in a skirt? Even the villains and the hapless victims are given their due, revealing that each of us, in one way or another, is a product of our past.
Ms. Thomas doesn't need any kudos from the likes of me; this is just a tip of my hat to a master story-teller, voicing my admiration for her style. Very well done indeed!
