I really enjoyed Dangerous Times. It unravels at a steady pace and as the tension intensifies so does the intricacies of the plot. As I went from one chapter to the next, I kept wondering how is this going to end? Frey has created a tense, enthralling thriller with elements of a harsh criminal underworld and yet there are moments of tenderness. With simple, clean descriptions, it's a story of 'everyday' people's fears, hatred and willingness to survive - no matter what. A highly recommended read.
With all its twists and turns I can definitely see this book turned into a movie. I really did enjoy "Dangerous Times," which surprised me since I can be a bit of a sissy. Beware of reading it before bed because you will have some strange dreams. So head on over to Amazon and get your copy of "Dangerous Times" now!

DANGEROUS TIMES is a multicultural crime-thriller with the pull of the unpredictable. This book is not for the squeamish.
Psychopath Frank Moore has a diabolical plan. To finance it he must commit a major robbery. He has now found the key to its success. Using databases, Frank Moore has found his scapegoat, his look-alike, John Kirk, a close-enough double who lives in the harbor city of San Pedro.
John Kirk wants to get out of San Pedro and leave his troublesome relationships behind. His live-in sweetheart is fed-up with his station in life and has become unfaithful, his mother finds solace from the death of Kirk's father by embracing the bottle, and Kirk's boss at the auto shop is an overbearing, cheap son of a bitch.
These troubles fall by the wayside when Frank Moore switches their identities and fingerprints in government databases. An act that will send the innocent John Kirk through 48-hours of betrayal, violence and murder—while Frank Moore will learn the meaning of "The best laid plans…"

Dangerous Times caught my interest from the beginning, perhaps because it took me around San Pedro, California, which I remember fondly. It contained all the expected elements — goriness, sex, a bit of social exposure and more.

I was a little skeptical when starting Dangerous Times, but man was I wrong. It takes a few pages for the author to grab you, but when he does he doesn't let go until the last page. Do not miss this one.

Phillip Frey proves with Dangerous Times that he can deliver a tightly written page-turner that will leave you waiting for the sequel. Indeed, the way in which this author completes this novel promises that there will be a second story to follow up on the characters Frey has created. I hope he doesn't wait too long to write it.

Once in a while an eBook comes along that you could swear was the e-version of a best-seller. Dangerous Times is one of those books. Make sure you have plenty of time when you open it up. You won’t put it down.

Dangerous Times is a crime-thriller that is so calculated and deliberate with action, the suspense keeps you entwined until the very end of the novel.
- Internet book reviewer Denise Murray Wong. Full review at:
"Dangerous Times" is a well-written crime-thriller. The plot is fast-paced and filled with surprise turns. The story line includes multiple characters with their own problems and circumstances, but Frey pulls them all in and makes them work in an excellent manner. I recommend this book to anyone who likes crime thrillers. You won't be disappointed.
