A father. A son. A murder.



Meet Tony Valenti. His high-flying corporate law career just cratered. His society marriage blew up in a bitter divorce. He’s returned to the Chicago suburbs to lick his wounds and regroup in the haven of the Valenti family home. But time to heal isn’t in the cards.

Tony’s elderly father inexplicably shoots a sheriff’s deputy on their front porch. Nobody knows why, and Papa isn’t talking. Then their house becomes an unlikely target for condemnation and expropriation by corrupt local officials and their cronies.

With money and hope dwindling, Tony steps up to defend his father and take on city hall, and quickly finds himself in peril when he unearths sinister connections between the cases. The audacity of the plot against his parents fuels a gritty determination to get to the bottom of what really happened—regardless of the risks and ultimate cost to himself. To win, Tony must earn his father’s trust and outwit his wily opponents.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good combination of a court room procedural and thriller Reviewed in the United States on October 16, 2021 - I couldn’t put it down. It’s a good combination of a court room procedural and thriller. This the first book in the series and is a bit of an origin story. Turner’s depiction of the court room drama felt plausible and accurate. While there is plenty of suspense in the legal wrangling, there is also plenty of action outside of the court room. As our protagonists fights city hall, he comes under physical threat from unknown sources. Characters are well developed and engaging. The plot is well paced and interesting. And the good news is that if you like it, there are other books in the series. Guy Wheatley



4.0 out of 5 stars Slow build but great story Reviewed in the United States on October 16, 2021 - Easy reading. This mystery-thriller is not your typical murder whodunnit (though that does wrap into the story). We start knowing a cop has been murdered and knowing who shot him, which set up the drama very differently. The clue trail was similar to other mysteries but the story was less gritty film noir which I enjoyed. Especially not having any overtly sexualized female characters. Overall, a great read but it was a little slow in places as parts of the story and characters are built. It made for a rich detailed read but less action than I typically find in thrillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Work! Reviewed in the United States on October 16, 2021 - “A House on Liberty Street,” is book one in “The Tony Valenti Thrillers” series. This book is most certainly one for anyone who is a fan of mystery and thrillers. The plotline is absolutely well-written, there are literally no flaws in this story overall. The character development of those in the story is absolutely believable and incredibly well-written, which is something that is most certainly something that can be quite hard to do, yet author Neil Turner accomplishes it with a sense of ease. I can't wait for the next book in the series! Amy K.



4.0 out of 5 stars Feel-good story Reviewed in the United States on May 23, 2021 - “If you're in the mood for a fast-read, feel-good story, this is a great book for you. It may be a bit simplistic in places, but the characters are interesting and the author keeps the story moving along. The only knock I found was that maybe the characters were a bit too flawless. Despite that, it kept me reading until a very satisfying end. I'm sure I'll read the second in the series.” Bill Zahren
