REVIEW FOR Dark tiger

A big than you goes out to Simon and Schuster for sending this wonderful book to me!

TITLE: Dark Tiger

AUTHOR: William Tapply

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

I am a huge, huge William Tapply fan and I am extremely sad to found out that he recently passed away. I am, however, glad that he wrote some final installments in his series of novels - specifically the Stoney Calhoun novels) AND the absolutely, wonderful Brady Coyne series (which is definitely the best).

In Dark Tiger, we find Stoney Calhoun - still as broody and determined as ever - however, this time, Stoney will find himself the victim of a man who is trying to get him to do something - all of which will be tied back to Stoney's presence at a VA hospital almost a decade before - at which time, he had lost all of his memories.

Dark Tiger is much edgier and darker than Tapply's previous two entries in the series. This novel focuses alot more on Calhoun's past which will end up colliding with his present and will go a long way in explaining some of the mystery that surrounds him (and will explain a little bit about why he is the way he is). As Calhoun acts as fishing guide at the lodge, he will find himself immersed in a mystery which will lead to violence and perhaps some answers that have been long ago buried.

Tapply goes above his usual brand of simmering "whodunnit" in this one and really branches out the Calhoun character and I read through this thing at the speed of light. LOVED IT!!!!!!
