    One thought on “The Blue Hallelujah”

    1. “The Blue Hallelujah” was a good edge-of-your seat thriller beginning with the protagonist Jerry Strickland, an ailing retired detective who’s writing his memoir about himself and his deceased wife Rebecca. The truth about what happened years ago which will be both his and Rebecca’s legacy.While his daughter Lori stops in to check on him, she learns that her 17-year-old son Colin was late again picking up his little sister Marnee from day camp and now she’s missing. Lori blames him for [...]

    2. I really didn't know what to expect. But this book is exceptionally goodrder, mystery from long ago, ghosts, and an old dectective that won't stop at anything when his granddaughter is kidnapped. The author did a great job at keeping you reading and absolutely refusing to quit reading until the book ended. It is wonderful to read a "real" book and not just 100 pages then cliffhanger, the next "book" picking up where the last one ended. The characters are developed well, you would love to be part [...]

    3. I will start with saying that I fell in love with retired police detective Jerry Strickland. Though his heart could give out at any time, he has things to do. He must redeem his wife, who died in prison after shooting a murder suspect in cold blood and he must help find his granddaughter, who has been abducted from her day camp. And this abduction is eerily similar to the abduction and murder committed by the man his wife killed years before. But no one, not even his old police buddies, wants to [...]

    4. I was expecting something different after reading Andy Straka's Pavilicek novels. I felt slightly disappointed at the beginning, but this turned out to be a wonderful book. I highly recommend it.

    5. I highly recommend The Blue Hallelujah by Andy Straka. This book is much more than a standard crime/mystery novel. Its pages (if pages really exist anymore) explore issues of life, death and the nature of evil while masterfully presenting a highly suspenseful story as told by a not-long-for-this-world greatest generation narrator. I entered this book concerned that it would be standard fare, a smart cop chasing evil villain, but was then delighted to find a highly original work of fiction that d [...]

    6. The Blue Hallelujahby: Andy StrakaThis is a crime/mystery novel about a retired police detective who wants to tell the story of his wife who dies in prison after shooting a murder suspect. He also needs to find his granddaughter who has been kidnapped in much the same way his wife was.This is a very suspenseful novel and really keeps you interested. I really enjoyed the character of Jerry Strickland and had a hard time putting the book down. It's a great read and it's not your typical police det [...]

    7. I enjoyed the plot line and suspense of this book and ran through it in just a matter of days. It had a lot of typos and used cliches some but the character complications were interesting. I'd have given it more stars if the the editing had been stronger because I did like the plot so much. I enjoyed it and if you enjoy a quick suspense story, you'll find this one has an interesting story line. Not sure I liked the ending, but it did fit the story.

    8. This was a really good book!It was full of suspense and intrigue.A girl goes missing from a Day Camp.Was it random?Related to her grandmothers past?Something else?Read it to find out!My only qualm about this book was all the praying.I do not see that this is a 'Christian book'.After the first few mentions we KNOW people are praying throughout.It does not need to be mentioned over and over.Steve Rimpici was an excellent narrator!I was gifted a copy through Audioblast for an honest review.

    9. I recieved this audiobook in return for an unbiased reviewThis is an enjoyable suspense/mystery, with a slight difference (the build up and form).I really liked the plot and found the characters likeable and beievable, it captured and held my interst throughout. well narrated by Steve Rimpici

    10. This book by Straka is a good one. It is solid. The topic is one you wish you did not have to rad about but it is read. The plot is good and keeps you going and the characters certainly are believable. I enjoyed it.J. Robert Ewbank author "Wesley's Wars" and "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    11. Another Outstanding NovelWhen I start reading a work by Andy Straka. I am confident will be great. However this book exceeded my expectations. The many characters were each fully developed as well as the concept of good vs. evil with a wonderfully twisty plot.

    12. No swearing, No graphic violence, No sex and imagine I still enjoyed this book ! :)A great easy to read crime story that once you start reading you can't put down.

    13. A different kind of mystery hero--and old man, a retired detective. The story is not all action--there is good character development that includes spiritual aspects.
