    Mr. Harris has a doozy on his hands here, the first book of an entertaining series yet to come. The characters range from downright funny to scary as hell. They balance each other out well as they perform the ballet of private eye fiction. The setting in Portland is so well-drawn, the reader can smell the rain and watch the hero, Clint McCall, make his way around town cleverly detecting and worrying and laughing over his fellow characters. Clint has as much heart as steely-eyed detecting prowess, both of which are encased in Harris' own special brand of humor...wry, dry, and self-deprecating. Harris' greatest gift to me as a reader is prose as clear as a fine pale ale...clean, clear writing. Now wrap all that up with an intricate plot that sneaks from mobster to rigid old lady to scared twenty-somethings, to corporate espionage, to a beautiful ex-cop who hates Clint's guts, to a tidbit of Hogwarts, to a psychopath, and you've got a book you won't be able to put down. Enjoy!

    I'm not much of an American mystery reader, mostly because I find too many of them boring and predictable. So I was more than pleasantly surprised at Glenn Harris' Turnabout is Fatal Play. The protagonists are likable and have a wonderful chemistry; they are also flawed individuals, which makes them all the more believable. The plot twists were surprising, and I didn't figure out "whodunnit" until maybe a few paragraphs before he was revealed. I'd rate Mr. Harris right up there with Patricia Cornwell and a step ahead of Kathy Reichs among American mystery writers. I'll be reading the rest of the books in the Clint McCall series, no doubt.

    In Turnabout Is Fatal Play, Mr. Harris has created a story that will pull you in and keep you wanting more. His descriptive sense dabbles in whimsy, yet never detracts from the darkened edge of the dangers that are lurking. His feel for making the characters jump off the page is something that many writers strive for.There's a sort of Rockford Files-meets-The Godfather quality about this tale that I really enjoy.The story itself takes place in the Portland area and sprinkles in a little fiction. It's a classical enough style of murder mystery to give you a sense of where the trail could go, then throws a nice little wrench into your interpretations. Without giving too much away, I can assure you you'll enjoy the winding way in which the mystery is placed in front of you. There're a number of interesting side-characters that wander in and out of the paths of McCall and Malone, the two private detectives who the story revolves around, and a pervasive evil that dances in and out of its entirety.It's been a good-long while since I've read a quality Murder/Mystery, and I'm glad I took a chance on this one. I can honestly say that, as someone who writes outside the genre, this will be worth your time. It's a hell of a lot of fun.

    My book intake has increased nearly tenfold since I acquired a kindle 2 years ago, reflected especially in the addition of mystery/thriller to my favorite genres. I just finished devouring a Glenn Harris novel, the first in his planned series of Clint Mcall-Devon Malone mysteries. I may never have met up with this jewel but for the fact that the author resides, as I do, in the heart of the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. How fun that the story unfolds in Portland, Oregon, with lots of action in familiar places. But that's not the half of it. Here's what I loved: (1) Characters, starring 2 private detectives, with a complex relationship, often tense, occasionally warm, always entertaining. There are lots of other people in this story, all colorful, none superfluous. I'm sure I've seen them all in downtown Portland. (2) A plot full of intrigue . There's loads of action, too, from infidelity, organized crime, corporate spying, serial murder, to interpersonal vignettes. Harris crafts all the pieces and parts masterfully; there's no getting lost in this lively fiction. (3) Great writing, really fun dialog, especially the frequent play on what Clint thinks vs. what he says. There is no contrivance; Harris' writing logically dishes out all the reader needs to know in ways that evoke amusement, anger, empathy, and plenty of terror along the way. The really good news is that Harris is working on the second book in the series; the bad news is that we have to wait a whole year to get our kindle hands on it

    I found Mr. Harris' book exciting and fun to read. I am an avid fan of James Patterson and felt that this thriller had a similar "personal" feel to it that allowed me to look inside the characters and feel that I was watching their lives play out in front of me. The novel kept me engaged as the plot unfolded and encouraged me to wonder what would happen next. I loved the two main characters and how they interacted and as the story reached it's denouement, I was left curious about what would become of their relationship in the next novel. Keep them coming Glenn. You have found another fan.

    Not my type of reading! The language was bad right off and I didn't and don't like a lot of offensive language. Don't think it's needed to write a good book.

    It is really difficult for me to believe that this is the author's first book. The quick-paced plot, the interesting and engaging characters, the "can't put this book down" kind of suspense, the bits of humor, the electricity between the two private detectives, the originality of the whole storyline--I was completely involved in it from the first page to the last. I have rarely read a first novel that is so well-written, with such excellent detail, and a plot that twists and turns and keeps the reader on a roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Alex Cross and Jack Reacher move over--and give McCall and Malone some space!
