    One thought on “A Falling Knife”

    1. I was provided an MP3 CD of A Falling Knife, to give honest feedback on the narrator.  First I had to sit in front of my computer for at least an hour trying to figure out how to get the CD to my iPhone.  I now realize how my Mother felt trying to program the VCR.  I was lost.  I normally just purchase audio book files and don’t have an issue.  Other than my car I don’t think I own an actual CD player anymore.  How technology has changed.  I digress.  So once the whole, how do I get [...]

    2. Andrew Case is more than an author, the man is an artist! The picture he paints in his writing is a work of art! A Falling Knife delivers just as The Big Fear. If you have not discovered Andrew Case, the time is now! This book catches your interest from Chapter 1, right up to the the end. Plenty of action, suspense throughout the book. I discovered Andrew through and am looking forward to more of his work in the future. I can't say enough on how much I enjoyed A Falling Knife. Pick up a copy an [...]

    3. From the first page, I was hooked again on the characters in Hollow City, and intrigued where the new story was leading. Andrew Case has an easily digestible writing style, and writes short punchy chapters, that make the book really hard to put down. This new story had twists and turns that surprised me, and continued smoothly with the series story-line. They only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because of a couple of scenes, where a character acted too far out of the picture created so far, [...]

    4. A Falling KnifeBy Andrew CaseCase’s second novel, a sequel to ‘The Big Fear’ in ‘The Hollow City Series’. Although it can easily be read as a stand along novel as I did.The story follows ex-cop Leonard Mitchell, a city building investigator who is drawn into going undercover for the police to investigate corruption in the building industry. He uncovers far more than he can imagine, especially as he struggles with who to trust.Case has a well written novel that engage the reader with in [...]

    5. This was another Giveaway Win. I had not read the first one but will now go back and read it also. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. Kept me interested throughout. Will be reading more of this Authors books in the future.

    6. One thing I hate more than anything is winning a giveaway for a book that is second or third in a series and having it imperative that the first book is read to understand what's going on. Clearly that didn't happen with Falling Knife because I wouldn't have given it four stars. The story and the characters were fun and like I said before you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this.

    7. I didn't read the first book in this series but I never felt lost. It has some very interesting characters that I feel like I will have to get #3 to see how this series continues. Some of the bad guys are still loose and we can't have that. I also like that it takes place in NYC and the boroughs surrounding NYC. I love to visit NYC and I always find novels that take place in that huge city to be a hit with me. Some of the story was a bit predictable but it was an enjoyable read. Closer to a 3.5. [...]

    8. A falling knife by Andrew Case is a mystery and thriller and general fiction (adult) read. Something’s rotten in the borough of Brooklyn. And it’s not just the wave of glossy condos pushing longtime residents out of their neighborhoods. A construction worker has plunged to his death, and suspicion has fallen on a fellow hard hat for turning a crane into a killing machine. When the suspect does a disappearing act, a pair of unlikely partners reunite to chase him down.A good but slow read. I l [...]

    9. I hadn't read the first book in this series but we are quickly absorbed into the world of big money and dodgy dealing in New York's neighbourhoods which have gentrification in progress. From high-iron workers to a tower block developer who is a lady of colour, willing to push out poorer residents but also willing to help rehouse them, we meet a wide spread of characters. Some of the tensions are obvious and can be easily understood, while others simmer below the surface and may need to be explai [...]

    10. A fantastic book that had me gripped reading it from the off. I liked how it involved characters from the last book, so it felt like you didn't have to spend half the book getting to know the main players.

    11. I received this book from . A good, solid detective story. I had not read the 1st book in his series, but this book gave enough background so I could follow the current story and the linkages to the first.

    12. Good storyVery well written and good insight good follow up . Love reading about my city author really makes you fell like you are right there

    13. I read the first book in the series and thought it was OK but glad I gave the second one a chance, I liked it a lot more.

    14. Found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read, liked it much more than the first in the series especially the multiple lines of investigation occurring. The story line is enhanced by a believable and consistent portrayal of characters making choices, initiating and respond to issues, experiencing events, all in a manner which not only add to the story but make things more personal and believable. Not everything goes to plan for everyone, mistakes are made, things are missed or overlooked. In my o [...]

    15. The cops are dirty. Real estate is dirty. The city is dirty. If you l like gritty police p procedures, you'll enjoy this book. One complaint. This makes two out of t w with too many loose ends. Add to that, but that would be a spoiler then, wouldn't that

    16. Discovering Andrew Case and The Hollow City series is like discovering gold. The Big Fear was a tremendous novel and A Falling Knife is just as good. In this the second entry into the series the reader is transported to the borough of Brooklyn where buildings are going up nearly as fast as the stock market. However, something is not right. People are dying, money is changing hands and our hero and his counterparts are desperate to find out why. Is a large development company at the heart of the [...]

    17. A New Favorite Author!Andrew Case shows his skill with character development and attention to the details of the mysteries first discovered in The Big Fear (Book 1) in this second installment. Knowing one thread was left unresolved, the reader learns of the fates of our unsung heroes from The Big Fear. Just when it seems that life is settling down for them, an accident on a construction site starts the ball rolling and it never stops until the last page!We meet additional complex characters in t [...]

    18. Not as good as the firstNot as good as the first book in the series but still pretty entertaining. I look forward to reading the next one.
