spouses, and generally keeps the populace of Sarasota on the up and upNow Lew is faced with one case that will try his patienceand another that may break his heartThe first involves an elderly woman who swears she s witnessed a murder in her old age home despite the fact that everyone she tells her story to her family, the hospital staff, and finally the cops all tell her that it just couldn t have happenedThe other has Lew trying to find out the identity of a hit and run driver who killed ayear old boy This task dredges up old memories and a lot of pain, for Lew fled Chicago years ago, after a drunk driver killed his beloved wifeAs Lew begins to dig deeper into both cases he finds that they are tied together in ways he can t hope to untangleAnd when someone tries to run him down, Lew knows that he s getting close to some nasty home truths and he is going to have get the answers if he is to survive As a longtime fan of Kaminsky s Inspector Rostnikov series, I thought I d sample another series of his, and was very disappointed Fonesca is a hard boiled process server and finder , somewhat akin to Spenser or Reacher But he is fardepressed than either of those, so much so that his defining characteristics are that he never smiles and he has a hard time getting motivated enough to answer the phone or the door Far from this creating an interesting facet to his personality, it

somewhat akin to Spenser or Reacher But he is fardepressed than either of those, so much so that his defining characteristics are that he never smiles and he has a hard time getting motivated enough to answer the phone or the door Far from this creating an interesting facet to his personality, it makes him monotonous and tedious Kaminsky takes a page from Parker s Spenser by writing staccato dialogue that is probably meant to sound profound in its simplicity, but manages only to sound inane And he irritates one of my personal pet peeves by making frequent references to bygone music and films, seemingly to show a refined and discerning character, but ending up sounding just self congratulatory So, interestingly for me, Kaminsky s gifts which I have so enjoyed in one of his series, do not seem to have carried through in all his work Denial A Lew Fonesca Novel by Stuart M KaminskyBook Review by Jay GilbertsonSometimes a good book is a lot like a delicious treat, you have a bite and

Review by Jay GilbertsonSometimes a good book is a lot like a delicious treat, you have a bite and before you know what happened poof you re reading the last sentence Denial is just such a story, short on fancy details, no clever writing technique to get in the way of a good old fashioned mystery This is the kind of novel you can zip through in an afternoon and by the end, have the satisfaction of knowing that this particular series goes on, and on Denial is the fourth in the Lew Fonesca series, but I liked the fact that I didn t have to have read the first three in order to know what was going on I hit the first page and was hooked Meet Lew Fonsesca, every new character Lew encounters mispronounces his last name, what is Kaminsky trying to tell us a two dimensional hero mystery solver who lives in the back of a sordid, two story office building in downtown Sarasota, Florida Lew lost his beloved wife to an unsolved hit and run accident a few years back and was trying his best to hide from what was left of his life Right yet at every turn there s not a person he meets he s not on a first name basis with He makes a meager living as a process server, but his real talent is in solving the various murder mysteries that literally walk in his office door Kaminsky has created a Columbo like character in that Lewor less stumbles into, through and then out of several delectably devious murders one of which happens to be a hit and run This, in a rather obvious plot trick hook modus operandi moves Lew into the mind set that he too must now, after years of mourning, find his deceased wife s killer This, of course, will allow Lew to move forward in life and even, God forbid, find a new love This kind of hook planting stuff can drive a reader crazy, but Kaminsky does it with careful a plumb Can we say, I wonder what the next book will be about Hmmm, find the wife s killer, put him her in the slammer and open an honest to goodness detective agency There s gotta be a movie in there somewhere.A favorite character who lends some psychoanalytical mind fixing into the depressed Life of Lew is eighty year old retired psychiatrist Ann Horowitz She either calls his cell phone, leaving brilliantly worded messages full of wisdom or raps on his office door bearing just the right bit of mind magic as well as a hot cup of brew Her reality check in the form of excellently delivered dialog is alone worth the read I think we could all use a hit of Horowitz s mind fixing now and again The snappy writing rhythm and surprisingly bleak dialog was pitch perfect It created a haunting, lonely quality that surrounds Lew like a gray cloud, drawing the reader into this carefully crafted world and yet managed to keep me wondering what could possibly happen next The endless coincidences and clich s galore all flowed together into a fast paced read just right for our long winters and padded with enough loose story lines for Kaminsky to write a pileI say, Write

the series is a depressed process server in Sarasota FL He is funny w out meaning to be Mark of a good writer Also another new character to add to the list of people that depend on Lew Fonesca whether he likes it or not. Fonesca is tried and true and will care about people in trouble until he gets to the solution for them, and for him except about his own personal tragedy I think I m going to stop after 3 books, I love him, but he casts a long shadow realistic, yes, but painful, yes, too. My first journey into the land of Kaminsky He creates great quirky characters, a la Carl Haissen, that at times made me laugh out loud Kaminsky s writing style is spare and to the point, as is the main protagonist The mystery unfolds at a good pace with a couple surprising twists mixed with some ok I know what s going on now moments for the reader A good quick mystery read.
