Review by Jane Brown …
The first few pages made me think no, too gruesome to read, but I thought the better and continued and changed my thoughts to ‘this is going to be a great read.’ This was a fantastic read.
The author has a great style of writing, can weave a plot and have the reader so enthralled they have no idea where the time went. The reader cannot put this book down it is simply a page turner.
The author has created a great woman cop – Tristan Badger, who is not quite as she seems with mystery, a little romance and a local Indian theme within the Carmel Valley, California. The descriptions of the area were both interesting and accurate as the author lives in the area.
This encapsulates evil from the villains and killers and will appeal to Patricia Cornwall fans, but also Kate Mosse fans who will enjoy the shared geography of the two worlds and the local Indian history which intertwines this crime story.
There is a hint at the very end that there may be more to come from this author and the protagonist cop Tristan Badger.
I would encourage readers of crime out there to seek this author out.

Castle Grey – A Katt and Mouse Mystery
This was a pleasant surprise. A complex plot, believable and sympathetic characters, well-handled sexual tension, an intelligent twist on the serial killer trope and some dialogue so electric, you can see the sparks.
Special Agent Katt and Mickey (Mouse) James are on the same side, at least when it comes to work. Trying to find the connection between apparently unconnected murders, they make progress and score points at a similar pace. Meanwhile, a very twisted individual is looking for lab victims for his experiments – and he’s after something bigger than white mice.
Tense, unexpected and well written with flashes of humour and smart use of setting, I found Castle Grey an enjoyable read.
There are problems – typos, head-hopping and some awkward prose made me stumble, but these things are fixable. What Lannie Wright has in abundance are ideas, imagination and an ability to tell a story. In my opinion, this is an author to watch. I for one will be looking out for the next Katt and Mouse.
Get Castle Grey here (Kindle) or here (paperback).
Lannie C. Wright writes a darn fine suspenseful murder mystery on his first introduction to his writing career. The locale in MONTEREY MADNESS is spot on for detail…Monterey, California…I would recognize it anywhere. There are even some wicked twists and turns in the plot. Enough to keep you turning pages. You are going to love this new writer. I highly recommend him.
On suspension for a sassy mouth, the six foot six ‘Hawg’ riding police officer, Adam Shaw is beginning to wonder where he stands with the Monterey Police Department when his best friend and war buddy, bar owner Sam Reynolds, telephones him for help. Sam has been accused of murder. But, what the heck, how does he figure Adam can help him when he’s on suspension? He couldn’t even get into the official files…although he gives it his best bluff.
So, he teams up with his longtime buddy, Manny, and his secretary, Margie, trying to prove his good friend innocent of murdering one of his clientele. But no matter how he tries, things just don’t seem to add up. Plus, people are finding themselves dead, all over the place.
The only person who seems to think he isn’t also guilty of murder is Assistant DA of Monterey, Dakota Walker. What can a suspended detective do when he himself is being suspected of murder? He does what a man has to do…he keeps detecting what he thinks is more than just one dirty cop on the force.

Start this one when you have lots of time to finish., March 13, 2013
Start this book when you have lots of time to read as you will find yourself wanting to continue to see what happens next. Fast paced with two story lines, humor, an interesting and likable strong woman lead and great twist at the end.
Good banter, sexy leads October 28, 2012
Despite an occasional cliche in the plot, the characters are likable and and there’s good banter between the leads, an ambitious female FBI agent and a hardened male cop who have teamed up to find a serial killer.I was amused when the sexist attitudes of the mostly male officers are shot down by a smart and (of course) beautiful woman. If anything, I would have preferred another strong female lead, but otherwise it’s a good thriller with two sexy protagonists.
what a ride !!!

Found the story entertaining, fast paced and at times amusing. Surprise ending to this who-done-it. I’m looking forward to more adventures with Katt and Mouse. The sparks fly between them!

I could not put this book down as I feared more diabolical events as the characters traveled from Monterey to Sacramento and back again. Weaving in and out of two different vicious scernarios the author keeps the reader in suspense up to and during the surprise ending.
I look forward to the next adventure with the main characters, Katt and Mouse, who taunt each other continuously even after
revealing warm feelings for one another.
So what’s the use of bragging about my reviews if you can’t easily get a copy. To get your copy of Castle Grey – A Katt and Mouse Mystery, click here (Kindle) or here (paperback). Thanks
