Reviews Of Palmetto Blood

“Palmetto Blood is a winner. It sweeps you in with intrigue and authority and never lets you go. I want to go riding with Jack Connor again.” —Michael Connelly, bestselling author of The Lincoln Lawyer and The Burning Room

 

“In Palmetto Blood, Reed Bunzel peels away the layers of mystery like a master of the genre.  The American south hasn’t seemed this hot, menacing and filled with surprises in ages.  Bravo to a fine writer and a splendid novel.” —T. Jefferson Parker, bestselling author of Full Measure and Laguna Heat

 

“Reed Bunzel captures the sights, sounds, and smells of Charleston with accuracy and feeling. His characters immediately come to life – and face death and danger with excitement and real-life drama. He is a mystery/thriller writer to watch...and read.” – Joseph Terrell, author of Tide Of Darkness and Overwash Of Evil

 

“Taut and elegantly written, gritty in the land of genteel, nothing runs colder than Palmetto Blood. Reed Bunzel totally gets the rich contradictions of coastal Carolina – the side porches and the Citadel, the society ladies and the Southern Mafia, the sweet demeanor and the killer instincts. He makes you want to move down immediately – then makes you scared to.” — Ellis Henican, New York Newsday

 

“Palmetto Blood is well worth reading, especially for those seeking a mystery with a bit of southern flavor.”—Midwest Book Review

 

 

Reviews Of Carolina Heat

“Reed Bunzel’s Carolina Heat lights up the Southern sky with taut, exciting action and a memorable cast of characters led by Jack Conner, a protagonist sure to become a major favorite of crime fiction fans. Don’t let this book pass you by.” —Michael McGarrity, bestselling author of Hard County, Backlands, and the Kevin Kerney crime novels

 

“Raw, irreverent, and witty, Reed Bunzel’s story of a tattooed war vet turned temporary private eye snaps, crackles, and pops with authenticity. War-tested, street smart, and sassy, Jack Connor is someone you want with you in a foxhole or the bloody back roads of South Carolina.” —Former Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, bestselling author of Blink Of An Eye and Dragon Fire

 

"It may be hot in South Carolina, but Iraq War vet and crime scene clean-up specialist Jack “Connor is nothing but cool.  Tightly plotted and skillfully written, Carolina Heat makes clear that Reed Bunzel has created a winning series." —Alafair Burke, author of All Day And A Night and If You Were Here

 

“Reed Bunzel not only captures the nuances of his protagonist’s profession, but in a way that the reader can understand in the rich environment of the South Carolina lowcountry. You smell it, taste it, hear it, and feel it as he guides you.” –Paul Sinor, screenwriter and author of the mystery series Johnny Morocco, Dixie Detective

 

“Reed Bunzel has written a wonderfully balanced suspenseful thriller with humor and danger, love and friendship, death and healing. Both the setting and the characters add real depth to balance the suspense of a murder investigation. Each character takes on his or her own personality through the effective dialogue and behavior, and his descriptive details of the setting evoke vivid images and ambiance and depth. Everyone is a suspect—including Jack Connor, who keeps brushing up against law enforcement—until a final thrilling scene in which the marvelous twist ending is revealed.” —Foreward Reviews, May 2015
