    The author of "The Ninth District" does a great job in writing his debut thriller.

He hooked me right at the beginning of his novel- I could see myself standing in the middle of the bank atrium with a gun pointed right at me. I believe Doug Dorow has an amazing talent for crafting sympathetic characters and believable dialogue. In the novel, FBI Agent Jack Miller is a seasoned agent. When the Federal Reserve Bank is robbed, he is paired up on the tough high-profile case with Ross Fruen, an inexperienced young agent. Agent Miller becomes the young agent's mentor and teaches him the ropes. Together, the FBI agents chase the evil bank robber through the bowels, storm sewers and tunnels of the city. The sinister and depraved criminal is nicknamed The Governor because he wears a mask of the Governor and salutes the security cameras as he leaves the bank after the robbery. The Governor has already robbed several banks, but the last one winds up with him murdering a helpless, pregnant woman. FBI Agent Miller is often separated from his wife and kids and wants to get back to his family. But, as a dedicated lawman, his job must come first and he dutifully sacrifices his home life in order to catch the corrupt killer. I believe readers will enjoy "The Ninth District" just as much I did and will look forward to more novels by Doug Dorow.

    When I started reading The Ninth District, I was skeptical. At 131 pages(in the PDF), the book clocks in at roughly half the length of the thrillers I usually read. Bad news: it IS a quick read. Good news: The Ninth District manages to punch well above its weight for the entire length of the ride.

Good news: The Ninth District manages to punch well above its weight for the entire length of the ride. Enter Jack Miller and Ross Fruen: the age-old combo of the veteran and the rookie in the FBI's Minneapolis field office. The veteran's seen his family disintegrate and the current murder/bank robbery case isn't helping. It's a classic formula, but Doug Dorow makes it work once more in this, his debut thriller--crafting sympathetic characters and believable dialogue that carries the story along. If you're a fan of FBI thrillers without the excess detail of a procedural, if you're looking for a quick, easy read, if you've ever wondered what might happen if the Federal Reserve was robbed--then you need to check out The Ninth District.

FBI Special Agent Jack Miller, pulled into a high-profile case to mentor a new agent, finds himself in a clash with the toughest opponent of his career. The chase culminates in the bowels of the city, in the storm sewers and tunnels beneath The Ninth District Federal Reserve of Minneapolis.(Author description) On reading the first seven chapters, I had high hopes for this novel. The character of Jack was well drawn and the author showed us what he was like through mannerisms and dialogue. The story premise of the FBI trying to catch a bank robber was interesting and so was the relationship between the older agent Jack and his younger partner Ross. Unfortunately from Chapter 8 onwards it all fell apart, almost as if the remainder of the novel was either written by someone else, or the first few chapters had been polished and the rest of the novel wasn’t. The characterisation of the Governor was all over the place, as though the author didn’t know his character very well, leaving the reader confused as to the type of person he was. Story threads were begun, but never mentioned again. The novel jumps in time and place, with no explanation to support it. The dialogue between Jack and Ross becomes stilted and clichéd and I became very irritated with them constantly asking each other if they were OK. The conclusion of the novel was disappointing. I do not intend to discuss the ending in detail as this would reveal too much, but it is all over the place, muddled, confusing and at times implausible. I wish the excellent start and engaging writing style had been sustained throughout the book.

    Very happy to have become acquainted with another very good Minnesota author! The Ninth District refers to the Federal Reserve Bank, located in downtown Minneapolis.

    It left me wanting more. This is a Mystery/Thriller with a touch of Family Drama. FBI Special Agent Jack Miller was assigned to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to the delight of his wife.

Jack's rookie partner takes the lead on a bank robbery/murder case while Jack lends a hand with his years of experience. When the villain, nicknamed The Governor, begins to feel the squeeze, he fights back placing Jack, his partner, and his family at risk of death. How will it all end? You'll just have to read the whole story to find out. I love how Mr. Dorow shows the viewpoint of the Governor as well as Jack. Even more intriguing is the reader doesn't know who the villain is until all is revealed. I also love the sense of family that is shown when we see into Jack's thoughts. I look forward to reading more by Mr. Dorow. Warning: This book is for Mature Audiences due to Violence, Sexual Situations, and Adult Language.

    I'm not sure exactly what I expected from The Ninth District by Douglas Dorow, but I know what I got--an engrossing, captivating page turner that made me wonder what would happen next. I found the main characters to be solid, the villain, known only as the Governor, to be cold and calculating, and I did find myself wrapped up in the personal struggle protagonist Jack Miller had with trying to keep his family together while helping to track down the bad guy.

I found the main characters to be solid, the villain, known only as the Governor, to be cold and calculating, and I did find myself wrapped up in the personal struggle protagonist Jack Miller had with trying to keep his family together while helping to track down the bad guy. The combination of the Minneapolis Fed and detail of the sewer tunnels and cave networks underneath the city were both intriguing to me. I do agree with some reviewers here that the ending was rather abrupt, which to me screams of a sequel. I also agree that it would have been nice to know more about the Governor's background since what is revealed doesn't seem enough motivation to kill, though it was enough to steal. I highly recommend The Ninth District and look forward to the next book in this series.

    You have to be kidding me - my reaction to the ending. And not in a good way. Even as a setup for the second half (can't really call it a sequel) it was a lame ending. I enjoyed reading a book set locally. Actualy that was the best part of this book. Loaded with loose ends and astonishingly unbelievable behavior by most of the cast.

FBI Special Agent Jack Miller, pulled into a high-profile case to mentor a new agent, finds himself in a clash with the toughest opponent of his career. The chase culminates in the bowels of the city, in the storm sewers and tunnels beneath The Ninth District Federal Reserve of Minneapolis. Dorow's characters are well crafted. They are easy to believe, realistic and sympathetic. FBI Agent Jack Miller is a seasoned agent paired with Ross Fruen, a young agent looking to learn the ropes. Their first case together is a tough one. One man, nicknamed The Governor, has robbed several banks. He doesn't take much money and doesn't usually kill but the last robbery he inexplicably kills a pregnant young woman. The Governor has a plan and his plan is much bigger than simple bank robberies. Miller and Fruen know that their time is short to find him and when The Governor starts targeting them, time runs out. Douglas Dorow gives us a fascinating crime to figure out and immerses us in the scenery as well. I was able to lose myself in the process of tracking a criminal and become acquainted with the personal life of Agent Jack Miller. His struggles with family and job were very real. Dorow doesn't create a superhero but a man with a family and a love for his job. Some of the things I found endearing about Jack was his humility and his propensity to give everyone nicknames. Fans of Crime Drama will be happy to welcome Douglas Dorow into the fold!

When it becomes clear the ultimate target is the Federal Reserve, “which has never been robbed before”, they believe they know what “the Governor’s” next step is. Dorow has written a well-paced thriller, which sweeps the reader along through the use of multiple points of view. His characters were well-written and had me invested in the story until its exciting conclusion.

    Doug Dorow does an excellent job in his debut thriller at forcing the reader to commit to his characters. I'm so glad this is the first in a series, because I need to know, need to experience, the evolution of these people.

The story kept me intrigued, though, as needs to be in a series, it proved to be the relationships between the characters that set The Ninth District apart from much of its genre. Suspense, intrigue, mystery... Can't wait to make that transition from the last page of Ninth District into the first pages of the sequel. I'm hoping that Durow has the endurance to match the longevity of the Bosch series, because I'd be infinitely interested in seeing where these characters end up. Bravo!

    Douglas Dorow does a good job of building a suspenseful crime novel. The story line jumps from good guy to bad guy. I found this to be an interesting approach, but some may find it confusing. While the book is not action packed but there are enough action scenes to keep you quickly turning the pages. As for the main character Jack, Dorow creates an tough, experienced FBI agent, combined with a soft heated family man. HE is very likable and it leads the reader to root even harder for the hero.

    FBI agents in Minnesota track a bank robber turned murderer. Pretty good story and well-written. I liked the FBI characters, but I had a hard time with the bank robber, he didn't feel like a real person and I didn't understand some of his motivations. A lot of unanswered questions gives this book 3.5 stars. I'm willing to read the next book in the series and look for some answers there. FBI agents in Minnesota track a bank robber turned murderer.

    An excellent first novel. The beginning is captivating, the story doesn't slow down through the middle, and the ending is intelligent and satisfying. More than having an exciting plot, the character's personal lives are layered, giving the story an added dimension of intrigue and suspense. An excellent first novel.

I must say I’m finally glad I got around to picking this one up and that I jumped in with both feet. Jack (our main character) and “junior“ made quite a team in this particular story. I am now told that there are sequels to this particular book, and that there’s a spinoff that features Ross as the main protagonist. Kudos to Douglas Dorow, I will be picking up additional books by him in the future. In this story, we find our main character, Jack Miller SPECIAL FBI Agent in Minneapolis working a case where three local banks have been robbed. However, there is some question as to exactly what the robbers motives are. The name GOVERNOR is given to the thief. Jack and his partner Ross Fruen are assigned to work the case and they discover much more than they initially expected.

    A Fun, Quick Read It is a well-written version of the crime genre. Though I am sure that all of us reading the book could see the ending from the original set up, it was fun getting there all the same.

This is a complete story. It was a little thin on character development. We got just enough to like the protagonist, but the development of the kid partner and the wife were incomplete. The dog portion of the book is the only time I felt it went a little too far, a common problem in this genre. While it seemed to be something substantial, it turned out be lost, perhaps on the editor’s floor. The sun-plot just hung in the air. What happened to the dog and what did the antagonist gain from what he did? But this is not “War and Peace.” For the genre and the author’s first book, it made we wanting more without feeling manipulated and that is the mark of a good, fun book. If you are into crime fiction, this is a great choice. I rarely write reviews. The book has to earn it and this one did. Happy reading.

    Douglas Dorow used the setting normally associated with Lucas Davenport. Minnesota, The Mississippi… what’s not to like about it? A seasoned FBI Special Agent and a rookie partner are working a case involving a mocking, elusive thief called the Governor, due to a facemask that closely emulates the State Governor. But to date, the Governor has only scored small amounts, from several hundred to 10 -15 thousand dollars, while confounding law enforcement with guile and misdirection.

When it appears that they are getting too close to the main event, the Governor decides to take the two FBI Special Agents off the board. The story has great pacing, as details are doled out slowly and a picture gradually takes shape. It was almost at the end, before I started to get a sense as to what the main objective was. It was a one-day read, with lots of action and suspense, and I was not going to get distracted from finishing the story. Dorow is fairly new to the realm of published thrillers, and this novel is a strong indicator that he is going to go far.

    Join agents Jack Kennedy and Ross Fruen as they weave their way through the streets and sewers of Minneapolis to try to nab a bank robber and murderer known as The Governor. His goal is to rob the Federal Reserve Bank. A bank that has never been robbed. At the same time Jack is trying to put his marriage and family back together again. It's a whopper of a story.

    This book is written by a new author. I like thrillers. This is an FBI thriller. It starts out with a bank robbery and a murder. Enter two FBI agents, Jack an experienced agent and Ross recently graduated from Quantico. They set out to solve the murder and the bank robberies. However, the bank robber has something bigger on his agenda than another bank. Hope that this will be a series.

    Loved this story. Fast paced, great characters. Jack and Ross made good partners. They were out to catch an egomaniac who robs banks, who uses and discards people. So well written felt as if you are right there, even in the tunnels. Can't wait to read more about these two. The author held my interest the entire book. Loved this story.
