Ms Lopez writing style is exceptionally flavour filled, reminiscent of poetry!

She is expansive in her use of describing words; I often had to stop and look up the words!! how exciting!

3 differing perspectives on the same crime, was at first a little confusing as no heading to differentiate, but soon got the hang of it!

I was not sure if I felt sorry for or horrified by the poor pusscat!! as a cat owner I will never leave my stinky socks in their bed (my laundry basket!) again, just in case!

a brilliant book to introduce me to a clever, funny and articulate author!

This is the story of a cat, a dog, a family and a detective hell bent on getting to the bottom of a 'suspicious' death. The old man next door has been found dead and the Smith's reported a commotion at their door on the same night. Detective MacKowski is determined to find out what happened whatever the cost....

this was a humorously dark little tale. Told in different points of view from the cat, dog and the detective. it was an interesting read, and certainly made me look at my cats in a whole new light, wondering what they get up to when we are all asleep! I giggled to myself as the cat plotted and ingratiated herself into the Smith family, leaving the devoted dog out in the cold. The detective was brilliant as a bumbling fool, dedicated to his cause no matter the cost. I recommend this for animal lovers and dark tale lovers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty Kitty (Ewww, I know that was bad) 25 Dec. 2011
By Jerry W. McKinney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
An enjoyable tale. Lori Lopez uses different POVs to weave this tale of dastardly deeds. One could almost see the cat stealthily strolling through the bushes in this remarkably detailed excursion. The author uses a refreshing wit as the story unfolds and the reader is treated to a summation of the evil feline's indiscretions. It will make you keep an eye on the neighbor's cat and give your dog a good scratch behind the ears. Yeah, Good Dog!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great short! 2 April 2012
By Sara Smolarek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I must start off by saying that I do not normally read short stories. I like to really get "into" the books I read, and shorts usually don't give me enough time to do that. This was an exception for me. I read the blurb and was intrigued, and I was hooked by the second page.

Unleashed: Tail One is a short story told from three points of view: a detective investigating a death, the neighbor's dog, and a kitty that has slipped over the edge into post-traumatic stress-induced psychosis.

The detective is a bit of a bumbler, the dog does his job as protector, but the cat is the star. She tells her story with dark humor, and lets us know in no uncertain terms that she believes in payback!

I greatly enjoyed this author's writing style. It's different from anything I've read lately, and a very refreshing change. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Lopez!

(P.S. - I received this as a review copy.)

5.0 out of 5 stars IT MADE ME CRY WITH JOY 1 April 2012
By Jeffrey Kosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a free evaluation copy after winning a contest held on a social network.

Fun. Entertaining. Visual.
These are just some of the words that come to my mind, after reading Unleashed: Tail One.
Lori Lopez concocted such an amazing (and incredible) tale it should be a blockbuster. Not reading this is like going to Paris and neglecting Eiffel Tower; you're missing something on your life trip.
Really.
I had to read several books these days. Some were of my liking, others were awful. It's my personal policy to just review those I enjoyed and deserving at least 4 stars. This went beyond. I'd give it 8 stars if I could, because Lori Lopez's style is truly innovative and her multitasking creativity clearly shows in her writing. In this tale you get three points of view: a dog, a detective, and a cat. Each one acts perfectly in character, with a lot of humor (dark and otherwise), and pleasant details.
The main persona - Midnight the cat - had me laugh and shiver at the same time, and some of her lines (her thoughts) brought me back at Showtime's Dexter ... with a touch of Ray Bradbury.
I think that Lori Lopez is one of the most gifted writers in the genre and should get more attention by the general public. She gets the instinct of a natural storyteller, yet she doesn't disdain prose, playing with words in a funny way, Lopez never bogs you down into the intricacies of English language.
I'm very glad having read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unleashed by Lori R. Lopez 6 May 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Unleashed: Tail One is downright funny. From the beginning to the end it elicits giggles and grins.

A serial murderer is stalking the neighborhood and the police detective is sure he knows who it is. Now only if he could prove it. Of course, if he does prove it, how is he going to catch the perpetrator? This criminal is slick, wiley and doesn't stand still long enough to be interrogated.

A cat with PTSD, A dog with a nose for mystery, a bumbling detective and a neighbor family under suspicion simply because they aren't suspicious come together in this rollicking story of death and mayhem.

Short at only 18 pages this is a fun little adventure you will enjoy and recommend to your friends.
