This, his third book, out Sept. 1st. is the first edition of a new series with a new character - Harlan Donnally.I finished this advance copy of Act of Deceit by Steven Gore on saturday. The remarkable aspect, which gives our hero Harlan Donnally such legitimate depth and believe-ability lies in Steven Gore's professional background as an investigator. The high end ki [...]

    This is the third book in Steven Gore's Harlan Donnally series but the first I've read. Perhaps my unfamiliarity with the characters altered my perspective. But here is what I liked:The plot is intricate and full of mystery and suspense. The story starts out slowly, gradually building until all the pieces eventually tumble together. The subject is current and handled incredibly well.What I didn't like: I found it difficult to relate to Harlan's character. I couldn't quite grasp his motivation fo [...]

    Note to the Reader: The idea for the story told in Act of Deceit arose out of a number of eventsAct of DeceitBy Steven GoreSteven Gore hit on so many of the issues that are facing the world today in Act of Deceit. Then I found that he had personal knowledge of everything he had covered, based upon his own career.For many reasons, his Note to the Reader held even more drama than the novel itselfAs I started reading and getting into the novel, I began to wonder just who and what this Harlan Donnal [...]

    I requested this paperback book after reading Gore's A Criminal Defense which I enjoyed. I wasn't disappointed at all. Gore is a former private investigator and that shows in his plots. His hero is Harlan Donnally, a good man trying to make up for what he sees as the errors of his father's ways. Dad is a legendary Hollywood movie maker, famous particularly for a movie about Vietnam that Donnally believes got his brother killed in action. In this story Donnally's friend Mauricio Aguilera confesse [...]

The main problem confronting Donnally is that Anna was murdered back in 1986, and her killer—Charles Brown—was seen as unfit for trial, instead scuttling between different medical facilities and detention ce [...]

    I received an advance copy as a good customer gift from a bookstore in San Francisco. I took it down to the Ferry Building Saturday morning, bought a cup of coffee, and started reading. This is the first time I was actually sitting right where a scene in a book took place right when I was reading it. The first few pages are kind of lyrical, then I hit a line that started me turning pages until I'd read straight through to the end. Great plot, great twists, and a great character in ex-SFPD cop Ha [...]

    A very busy book that just didn't do it for me.I enjoyed meeting retired detective Harlan Donnally who was forced to retire due to an injury sustained during a shootout. He goes about his business with a battered body but a world class commitment to following the trail to wherever it leads.But, the book has so many twists and turns that it felt like the author was whipsawing the story around just build an artificial sense of tensionRead more at: dwdsreviews/2011/

    After being shot, Donnely was retired out of the SPD and bought a rural California cafe. His neighbor left him a letter of confession on his death bed, asking him to find his sister who'd been molested by their father, who he'd killed. He'd left is 5 year old sister at a commune and new she was in good hands because he'd gone back to see her from a distance when she was in school. Donnely was nearly killed a few time trying to fulfill this dying wish.

    A car accident of a book. Enough story to keep you reading but nothing to want you to read the next Harlan book. A main character that is hard to like, who whines to much about social injustice, and has relationship problems with everyone.

    Lawrence
    This book is TERRIBLE! Lots of characters I didn't care about doing things I didn't care about. I couldn't even bring myself to read the last 10 pages. I just wanted to put the book down as fast as possible and never waste my time on another Steven Gore book ever again.

    Neil Mudde

    Read about 10%I wasn't enjoying it at all and when the woman he was sent to find was found long dead, I just didn't see a point. I guess I'm in an impatient mood

    Elizabeth
    It's ok. Wouldn't mind reading if desperate at an airport, otherwise no need to find more books by this author.
