    A character-driven crime novel that is as good as it is dark.

    DEAD MEN RISE UP NEVER (Unlicensed Investigator) – Okay Ron Faust – 1st in series Dell, 2004 – Paperback Former CID investigator and current law student Dan Shaw agrees to find the currently missing heir to a very large fortune. Instead, he finds a cabin cruiser containing a dead goat, and underwater, seven anatomically correct inflatable mannequins and a female corpse. *** The plot was suspenseful—man against man, man against nature--had excellent dialogue and lots of disreputable characters.

The only likable character was the protagonist, and it just seemed off balance to me. The problem was the only part of the story in which I really became engrossed was the ship in the hurricane. The rest I found myself skimming through. Those who like macho good guy stories, although without any likable or interesting side kicks, might enjoy this, but for me, it was strictly an okay read.

    I sincerely hope Ron Faust played ball better than he writes. According to Scott Turow on the cover of Dead Men Rise Up Never, Ron Faust is "A writer of enormous talent, a stylist to admire and a storyteller of great power." I disagree with all three points after reading this book. Maybe Turow had just read a different story by Faust. The only good thing I can say about this book is most of the baddies suffer as much as the reader. I sincerely hope Ron Faust played ball better than he writes.

    Wonderful characterizations! The law student investigator faces interesting dilemmas as he works part-time for questionable employers. The Florida setting is beautifully described, and the second half is a roller-coaster ride.
