PRAISE FROM READERS AND REVIEWERS
Review and Award from Trudi LoPreto, Readers’ Favorite
“Texas Dead has twists and turns that I will not spoil for you but I will only say it is a worthwhile read. Suspense, mystery, humor, romance, charming and lovable characters, and a very real plot. Gensburger has created a charming, sweet, and very likable detective along with her friends, bringing Corpus Christi, Texas alive. I highly recommend Texas Dead as your next reading experience.”
Review from B. Creech, The Online Book Club
“Texas Dead by Willian Gensburger is an epic crime novel filled with suspense and murder and a tender, unexpected love story. Gensburger did an excellent job of developing the characters in this story…. What I liked most about this book was Maxie’s character. The violent aspect of the story was not overdone. Typically, I am offended by all three; however, the few situations present in this book did not bother me. I recommend this book to adult readers who enjoy a good crime novel with some romance thrown in.”
Review from Julio Carlos, Scribble’s Worth Book Reviews
“Gensburger does give attention to each and every character in the novel. He takes his time with the mystery and showing off what is happening, and makes our waiting worth the while.”
Review from Dan Ashley, News Anchor, ABC-7, San Francisco Bay Area, CA.
“Looking for a great read? Check out William Gensburger‘s new book, “Texas Dead”. It’s very clever and engaging.”
Review from Jill Hedgecock, Book Reviewer, The Diablo Gazette, Concord, CA.
“A fabulous page-turner. Fans of Marcia Miller’s ‘Sharon McCone’ series, and readers who enjoy Ray Bradbury’s style of writing, will most likely enjoy this book.” Read the review in the newspaper HERE
Review from Thomas Anderson, Editor-in-chief, Literary Titan
“Not your average gritty murder mystery—plenty of humor injected into the story to make this hard-boiled mystery feel light and fun as well as deeply intriguing. I can not hold back from appreciating the author’s talent in conveying a traumatic experience like paralysis in a motivational…way. Vivid scenes and backdrops…really bring the story to life. “A variety of interesting characters…kept me curious and captivated the whole time. This is a thrilling crime fiction novel with brave-hearted characters, intelligent decisions, and shocking revelations.”
Review from bestselling author J.C. Ryan, author of the ‘Rex Dalton’ thriller series.
“Mystery & Crime lovers, I suggest you don’t miss this one. I got hooked within the first few pages. There are more twists and turns than in a corkscrew right to the end.”
Review from Alex Lewczuk, Siren Radio (U.K.)
“It’s so cinematic…crying out for that screenplay.”
Review: from Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Reviewer
Coupling a murder mystery tale with a fine dollop of humor makes Gensburger’s book ring! From the very beginning, as we meet the titular character of the series, detective Mackenzie Michaels, the light aspect of his writing is shared. The story is fast paced and well condensed by the author. In addition to the fine character portrayal of Mackenzie, her partner, Kobe Jameson, a Jamaican man, is equally well painted, and the interaction of the two detectives makes for an excellent combination in exploring murder – and making the story humorous. This is a fine initial volume for a series that holds great promise.”
