Excerpt from "Deception. Police Lieutenant, Brian Kierzek made his way to the core of the river park where he saw the heavy activity taking place inside a large rectangular area cordoned off by bright yellow police-line barrier tape. The atmosphere was hushed as everyone moved around warily, speaking in lowered voices, strange, but typical behavior whenever a corpse lay in their midst. The death scene, he thought. Slowly approaching the site, he inhaled deeply when he saw the still bulge lying near the edge of the riverwalk, covered with a black body tarp.

Riley St. James did it again with. His first book, "In the Shadow of the MoonGlades" was great. However, he has surpassed its excellence with "Deception in the Rainshadows". The story was masterfully put together and kept me in suspense until the very end. I judge a book according to whether or not I am able to put it down once I begin reading. Deception" was a winner.

She cries, children often do When they're cold, and hungry too. Come closer, look deeply in her eyes So delicate, quite unlike her smile. Life clinging backwards In the fall of dread confusion Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips Cold yielding breath, for instant isolation Far more sinister than the price of doubt. Life clinging backwards In the fall of dread confusion Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips

Riveting, with a constant, excited impetus pulling you from one chapter to the next. If you think you can usually figure out a mystery novels twists and turns, you're going to be challenged and pleasantly surprised. No cardboard cutout characters here. Everyone is most believable, credible,and dealing with a series of perflexing circumstances surrounding the death of a married, socially prominent, sucessful artist, who is involved in an extramartial affair. I greatly enjoyed this author's first book, "In the Shadows of the Moonglade" and looked forward to his subsequent book to see of he could at least equal his previous work. Well, he has not only equalled it, he has surpassed it and proven that he's an author to taken seriously.

After reading the authors first novel,"In the Shadows of the Moonglade", I've eagerly awaited his next book. "Deception" is well worth the wait. A beautifully written and gripping mystery, I was quickly drawn into the plot and the lives of the characters, especially that of Detective Kierzek, an excellent cop and truly decent man. I hope to see more of him in future books. This is a story that will keep readers hanging on, guessing and gasping, 'til the last page.

I enjoyed this book very much. The plot keeps you guessing until the end. The characters are interesting and compelling. You can't help but feel for Jonathan. I would highly reccommend this book to any mystery lover; as I have to a number of my friends. The book is easy to read, but not simplistic. The only technique that I found somewhat distracting was the author's use of flashbacks. This is a personal preference as I do not like them in any book. The author made good use of flashbacks when he did used them. I found myself caught up in the story straight through to the end. I look forward to Mr. St. James' next book and plan to go back and read his first book. Please don't take my word for it; pick up the book and read it for yourself!

BRILLIANT? Where did that come from? It honestly makes me wonder if all the reviews here were done by friends or the author himself. I have to say that I struggled through this book after having read a GREAT book, Jonathan Kellerman's BILLY STRAIGHT. To me, this book was a wrong turn down a reading DEAD END. Okay, to be fair, I must explain that 1) the characters were cardboard cutouts, 2) the suspense did not show up at all, and 3) the writer's mastery of good descriptive words is non-existent. I wish this book would have come with a warning label for amature writing.

...what an outstanding book. Good mysteries are really hard to come by, but this one is fantastic. It's compelling, intriguing, fascinating, cleaver...everthing a good mystery should be. It's impossible to put down until it's finished because it grabs you early and you don't want to miss anything from beginning to end. The author does an excellent job up setting up the plot, letting the reader really get to know the characters, and drawing the reader in to the story. I have already highly recommended it to many friends. A must read.

What more can I say about this very talented and gifted writer. As his first book, "Moonglade", it is a book to be read by all. The storyline and his characters can be identified with so much that one tends to feel they are part of the story and the character. A little anger, fear, suspense, sadness and mystery are sure to be felt by the reader. It grabs you on the first page and your hooked, once again by this writers wonderful talent. Thank you Mr. St. James for sharing your talent with us. I'm patiently waiting for your next page turner.
