There are times when the truth invites evil, and there are times when the truth can get you killed. Few residents in the secluded mountain-town of Winston, Colorado, have kind words to say about local troublemaker Sean Coleman. He's a bully, a drunk, and a crime-show addicted armchair detective with an overactive imagination. After a night of poor judgment, Sean finds himself the sole witness to the unusual suicide of a mysterious stranger. With the body whisked away in the chilling rapids of a raging river, no one believes Sean's account. When his claim is met with doubt and mockery from the people of Winston, Sean embarks on a far-reaching crusade that takes him across the country in search of the dead man's identity and personal vindication. He hopes to find redemption and the truth---but sometimes the truth is better left unknown.

From a Dead Sleep
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing at every turn. I do think it was a little too wordy in describing things.
4 stars for good plot
But uneven writing. Jumps from mind numbing detail to one sentence jumps in time and story. Unsympathetic lead character.
From A Deep Sleep by John A. Daly
This was a very intriguing crime thriller experience to read especially the last third of the story. Unfortunately about 150 pages should be deleted just because of too much detailed information that is redundant and boring to read. I found myself skipping many paragraphs that were superficial descriptions strung together. Otherwise you definitely have much talent and I see great success once this dilemma is corrected. KSW
