A well written historical crime thriller with perfect pacing...

The Dead Crawl Home (The Jack Ryder Mysteries Book 2) by Lawrence J. Epstein is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this historical crime thriller that will guarantee the attention of the reader. Set in mid-1940s New York City, private detective Jack Ryder must figure out how a murder and a suicide are connected to a menace by Nazi spies.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the story in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a well written historical crime thriller with perfect pacing.

Definitely worth reading the first book in the series, but the author writes in such a way that any of the books could be a standalone. It was a mesmerizing read that had me engaged from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of suspenseful and intriguing moments in this page-turner that will take the reader on a thrilling journey. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me.
