 Crime Novels - Phillip Frey

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 first 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…"

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.

For lovers of crime thrillers and suspense novels written in a solid, purposeful voice, "Dangerous Times" is a winner. It's dark and gritty, yet still touched by flashes of brilliance told in a unique voice. Once it grabs you, it doesn't let you go.

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.

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.

"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.

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 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. 

- Book blogger Alex Canton. Full review at:

Dangerous Times is a crime-thriller that is full of twist and turns and unpredictable situations. The story has murder, sex, lies, and just an all-around dark and gritty story. Dangerous Times keeps you on your toes, guessing and wondering what is going to happen next.
