Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilling Books! This is a great book, hard to put it down once you start reading it. Never a dull moment. Makes you want to read all Don Easton's books. I have now read the first four. Easton is such a good writer, his stories flow well and you want to read more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real home town hero! Dead ends makes you feel grateful for the work the RCMP does. Don Easton writes about smuggling, drugs, rape and murder and after you have finished the novel you cannot wait to pick up the next to get more humor, wit and dangerous action to leave you on the edge and wanting more. Great read, cannot wait for the next. Good job once again Don!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Unconventional Hero - Great Story! Canada is a world leader in the exportation of drugs, mostly marijuana and methamphetamine. The criminal gangs gross billions of dollars annually. Their leader’s live in luxury mansions rivaling Hollywood celebrities. But our courts fail to take a hard stance, and our government continues a losing war. Don Easton’s deep undercover police officer, Jack Taggart, takes most cops cynical view of the war on drugs, to the extreme by employing his own methodology to solve crime and affecting his own version of justice, both of which catch the reader by surprise on numerous occasions. Dead Ends reveals something else often overlooked. In war it is called collateral damage, the innocent non-combatants maimed, or killed during combat. In the war on drugs collateral damage is a huge reality, but largely unrecognized and unreported. Dead Ends draws the reader into this dark world, following Taggart as he deals with the often unseen victimization that makes a good cop use extreme and often unorthodox methods in his pursuit of the villains responsible. Taggart’s humanism makes him a compelling character the reader can easily identify with. His choices make him an unconventional hero, one whose choices we may applaud, but not admit to. The fast paced action, the compelling intrigue, and the heart racing suspense built by Don Easton, brings Dead Ends to an incredibly dramatic conclusion! It’s a great read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hold on Tight - Another Jack Taggart 'reality' trip! Another 'Jack Taggart' intelligent realistic thriller about the life & work of an undercover cop with a powerful sense of justice, dogged determination and the physical and mental skills to overcome overwhelming odds. The plot is convincing, the prose is direct & the action is satisfyingly blunt. Another great read & look forward to the next one. Catherine Isaacson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW Just finished reading Dead Ends, all I can say is wow...I could not but it down, Don's books are amazing, thank you Don for your novels. I am going to be lost without his books, I guess In have to find something else to read, but I know I wont be able to find any book even close to Jack Taggart Mysterys's.

Once I pick one up I can't stop. Taggart thinks outside the box and those are the cops I'd want to work with. I can't wait for more. Keep the great works coming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On The Money! Easton's 'Dead Ends' is right on the money when detailing the antics of Defence Council and the judiciary. There is little accountability for either of these two professions. Easton tells a sordid tale which is unfortunately too true to life. The courts are too willing to accept information and/or stories provided by Defence Council and their clients without considering the veracity of the information given. The gangsters of today have no respect for anything or anyone as is detailed in reported crimes and on going current court cases. Because of Easton's experiences, he is able to tell it like it is. Another great book detailing the exploits of Jack Taggart!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from God made him an Atheist Don Easton touches on some sensitive topics in the next installment of the Jack Taggart dramatic crime series, including religion, drug trafficking, and morality vs legality. This book takes absolutely no time getting off the ground - a gut wrenching case to hook Jack (and the reader), a roller coaster ride of gang fights, high speed chases and deception, and a twist at the end that will had me wanting to hug Jack to pieces (after a good cry). While a generally serious read, I did find myself laughing out loud in numerous spots, as Taggart always seems to have just the right line to feed back to his superiors, or in an undercover moment when things aren't going as planned. Easton's own undercover work is evident throughout the series, as only someone who has been in these situations could write them as he does. Returning readers will be glad to experience quite a bit of growth in multiple characters in this book, and a big announcement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real grabber Review of Dead Ends by Don Easton Well readers, again, Mr. Easton has taken us back into the sordid criminal world. This setting could be your town anywhere in the world. It happens to take place mainly in the British Columbia Lower Mainland. Hero “Jack Taggart” of the RCMP has to walk between the lines shall we say, in order to get his targets their due. This is another illustration of the pathetic Judicial system and the mamby-pamby treatment of ‘juveniles’ that causes murder to be gotten away with so many times. Read this novel and you will understand why Taggart has to do what he has to do. He fictionally is the Jack Bauer of the police undercover operative here in this thriller. In the real streets, life is cheap and if you don’t believe it, Grab a copy and find out why! I recommend the author’s new Website if you want behind the scenes of Taggart’s world. www.jacktaggart.wordpress.com TOM DONALD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery, sex, murder and intrigue!!!!! Thoroughly enjoyed this book from cover to cover. Once I started this summer read, it was a page-turner that left me wanting more. I hope there will be a sequel?! One you pick this book up you won't put it down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspector Green strikes again Dream Chasers is the third Inspector Green mystery I have read. I have not read them in sequence but like the fact that I know the locales around Ottawa and Eastern Ontario and I like the character of Green. He wants to be by the book in the execution of his duties but he often takes matters into his own hands. I feel that the author is an astute judge of human nature as the characters are believable and people I can relate to. This mystery was satisfying and kept me guessing to the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfying read This is the second in the series of Inspector Green novels I have read. I like the fact that many of the locations in Ms Fradkins novels are locations I know. I come from a town on the Rideau Canal and Ms Fradkin uses her Ottawa Valley locations well. I like the character of Inspector Green. He is a workaholic who is trying hard to make a go of his second marriage. This novel offers off some interesting history on the plight of Jews in Poland during the second world war so it is a multi textured mystery. I have to force myself to finish novels and had no trouble sticking with this one. It is apparent when you read the book that the author has good insights into human nature and that makes it interesting as well. Like the Ottawa references as well. I would recommend this novel without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard nosed cop or not??? Inspector Green is back. He really doesn't like paperwork and will do almost anything to avoid it, so when he hears of the death of an 80 year old man his suspicion is aroused. - While the Coroner says there is nothing suspect in the death, Green noses around and gets enmeshed in a web of hidden secrets spanning back to World War II, Hitler's agenda, the Jewish Ghettos in Poland and men who don't want to acknowledge their past. - Makes for an intriguing tale that leads to places and events I could never have suspected. - We also learn a lot more about Green himself as well as his relationship with his father, a concentration camp survivor. Without giving anything away, I do love the choice of gift for Tony's first birthday from Green. - Not being a student of history, I did have a bit of a hard time following all the events during the war, but that should not deter anyone from reading this wonderfully written tale. -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that Inspector Green A first novel by Barbara Fradkin, set in the vicinity of the University of Ottawa, Ontario. - Inspector Michael Green is called in to investigate the murder of Jonathan Blair, a grad student. With no apparent witnesses Green has to work from the vague recollections of student/librarian Carrie MacDonald. He also has to contend with the victim's mother, Marianne Blair, head of a major funding organization that benefits some of the University's research. - Love/Professional Jealousy/Honour Killing/Random??? - From the first meeting of Inspector Green I felt comfortable with him, as though I'd known of him for years and that he would solve this case in his own way. I knew that he wouldn't suck up to the brass and hurry his investigation just to please them. What we learned about his home life and his relationship with his wife re-enforced my comfort with him. He's a real life guy who has to deal with stuff just like I do. - At the mid point of the story I thought that Green was going to make an arrest of the seemingly obvious suspect, but add a few more twists and some conflicting evidence and I was back at square one. I honestly did not know "Who Done it" till the final pages. I had had a faint glimmer of suspicion when I met the character, but the person's demeanor and responses threw me off the trail. - I really enjoyed this book. I felt comfortable with Inspector Green and look forward to reading more about him and his future cases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A smorgasbord of mystery, appealing characters and twists and turns! Honour Among Men brings back Fradkin's interesting protagonist, Inspector Green. This time he's called to a case involving the death of a mysterious woman whose body was dumped on the shore of the Ottawa River. The first order of business? To uncover the woman's identity. The second? To find out why she had a military medal for bravery in her hand. This fascinating novel takes you from Ontario, Canada, to Croatia via a soldier's missing diary, and it gives you a look into the hearts and souls of soldiers and the atrocities they face every day when they're at war. It also exposes the raw inhumanity of war and how people are forced to make choices 'over there', ones they have to live with afterwards...if they can. Honour Among Men shows us that politics are often cloaked by past misdeads. Everyone has a past. Some don't want theirs in the limelight, and they'll do anything to keep their secrets. If you enjoy a great mystery novel with vivid scenes, realistic dialogue and a well researched plot, check out Honour Among Men. Recommended for: Those who like a traditional 'whodunnit mystery' set in contemporary times. ~Cheryl Kaye Tardif, bestselling author of Whale Song and Divine Intervention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspector Green rides again! Once again author Barbara Fradkin delivers up a first rate mystery while releasing more details about her characters. Having read her first five books, I am anxiously waiting to get a copy of her latest. All of the books to date, including this one, have Inspector Green using the past to define the present which eventuallly leads to the heart of the mystery. Like many mystery fans, I tend to read a new novel quickly, however there are times when you complete a book and you find yourself a bit disappointed because there is no more. It is over (until the author provides you with something new). The Inspector Green books fall into this category. For those not aquainted with this series, I recommend beginning with the earliest book and progressing through them by date of publishing. Although all books can stand alone, you would miss the character development throughout. Many thumbs up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Best Yet! A man falls to his death from a bell tower of an old church. Was it suicide or something more sinister? Inspector Michael Green investigates but finds more questions than answers. This latest in the Michael Green series is the best yet. The story was well written and had me guessing right up until the end. The characters were colourful, interesting and easy to care about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Persistence of Memory In the next entry in her Ottawa mystery series, psychologist Barbara Fradkin uses the theme of time to weave a provocative story with roots in the Second World War. Chafing at the increased bureaucracy of his job, maverick Inspector Green can't resist raising questions about the death of an old man found in a parking lot. Already in ill health, had he fallen and hit his head before succumbing to hypothermia as the coroner surmised? Meeting the grieving family only increases Green's suspicions. Why do they avoid specifics about his past? Did expediency or guile lead this unlikable Polish man to claim the name of Walker after recovering in Britain from serious wartime wounds? If his memory had vanished, why did he hide a German's soldier's ID card in his country farmhouse? Fradkin is a solid writer whose many skills continue to unfold with each book. Her sense of place is precise, whether combing the streets of Canada's capital or describing a European hamlet ravaged by the Holocaust. S

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Murder: It's Academic Barbara Fradkin has a winner with DO OR DIE. Confronting a blood-dripping opening scene contaminated by bungling, Inspector Michael Green presents a tightly-strung, self-doubting sleuth as he juggles a shaky second marriage, a working wife, and a newborn. Political power struggles are the next barrier in his effort to discover why Jonathan Blair, a graduate student, was found stabbed to death in the quiet stacks of the university library. An innocent victim in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or a calculated homicide? Evidence seems too scarce for an amateur. An eminently likable man, Blair had been involved in ground-breaking neuropsychology. His path had crossed a viper's den of ambitious colleagues led by an arrogant professor with a world-class reputation. In addition to a girlfriend with a grudge, Green must track a Lebanese girl protected by her concerned family. Against the rich tapestry of Canada's multiculturalism (Green has a long-neglected Jewish heritage), the staid city of Ottawa reveals its gritty underbelly and its upscale suburbs. Assisted by the blunt but capable Sgt. Sullivan, Green battles personal demons to bring the culprit to justice. A sure-footed knowledge of forensics makes this a solid police procedural as well as a taut thriller.

I left him, I went to a friends house and the first thing I did was pick up the phone and called the police to report my husband for what he did. His family hates me for that but I don't care I am proud of myself, I know I did the right thing. ANGEL IN THE FULL MOON IS A GREAT BOOK...Conny from victoria

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's been too long since the last novel. Another sleepless night as Don Easton's latest novel, Samurai Code, finally hit the stands. Like his other books, it was difficult to put it down after I start reading, but after a two year wait, it was absolutely worth it. Easton's unique experience as a retired police officer gives the readers a peek into the sinister world that exists in our own cities in the dead of night. With his vast experience, it is to our benefit that Easton has chosen a career in writing to share with us the true stories of organized crime in a global sense. Don't make it too long for the fifth novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet! As the fourth book in the Jack Taggart series Samurai code continues the battle against evil and the system that seems to hinder the fight. Don Easton is in a class of his own, one of the few authors to have actually experienced the subject of which he writes. Like the previous three books one should set aside time to read them as I cannot put them down once started. I compare Don Easton to "Wilbur Smith". The difference being Easton has experienced the world he writes about. His passion brings home the message that Law Enforcement and the persons who undertake the profession are often hindered by the courts and the system that supposedly supports them. I await the 5th book anxiously to see if Easton can top the prior four books as they just keep getting better.
Date published: 2010-10-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best in the Series! Samurai Code is Easton's best book in the series. He continues to tell it like it is (ie. Judge's sentences) and provides experiences that makes you think he has been there and puts it in perspective. Most people do not realize the ruthlessness of the criminal element.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth reading Dull, predictable, full of cliches, boring two dimensional characters. I didn't bother finishing it.
Date published: 2010-10-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read As the fourth installment in the series, "Samurai Code" continues to deliver the action, suspense and grit of the previous novels. The characters are well developed and human. You will find yourself caring about them, just as Jack Taggart himself cares about all of the victims and is driven to seek justice for them. Once again, I found myself staying up well past my bedtime to finish the novel, not able to wait to find out what happens next! I look forward to any future installments. While you can read this novel on its own, for those of you new to the series, I highly recommend picking up the previous three books first ("Loose Ends", "Above Ground" and "Angel in the Full Moon"). Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read British Columbia et al. Review of Samurai Code by Don Easton THIS, should be mandatory reading by all Law Makers, Cabinet Ministers, Lawyers and in particular…JUDGES in the Province of B.C. This ‘fictional’ story is not far off the mark in reality. As in the three other books with Jack Taggart fighting evil, we find ourselves once again in the underbelly of crime which , it seems, only Taggart can get the job done by playing the ‘bad guys’ rules in order to defeat them. If you find yourself clenching the book near the end of the story, it is because Mr. Easton has the knack of taking us to a high-tension ending. This is my kind of “com-up-ance”. As Taggart would say: This ain’t about the law, it’s about JUSTICE! TOM DONALD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like every mystery... start from square one!!! Angel in the Full Moon is the third in a wonderfully suspenseful series written by Don Easton, and I mean wonderfully suspenseful in the most riveting way!! For those reading this review... read Loose Ends and Above Ground first. Totally worth picking up all three for a weekend read because you won't stop after the first one!! From start to finish, Easton has a style of writing that makes his characters, Jack and Laura, alive, credible and just a little frightening for heroes - keeping you on the hook the whole way through. You will truly understand and appreciate the intriguing, rebellious Jack and you will share the crooked smile of his as he "blurs the blue line" of his actions. As a 'member' in a drug section, I LOVE how Easton has pushed the envelope for justice!! Thanks Don... Can't wait for the next book!!! You are far from "NFAR. CH."!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I lost sleep because I couldn't stop reading! I picked up Loose Ends and Above Ground for some light reading for vacation but after cracking open the first book on the flight, I finished both books by my first night. I did not expect to be so drawn into the fight for justice by Jack Taggart created by Don Easton! I have read many novels with characters in law enforcement, but the realistic personalities created by Easton are true to life and definately enjoyable to those involved in this struggle between the good guys and the bad guys. Easton's obvious successful career was reflective of the words on his pages. For those who want to experience the trials and tribulations of law enforcement, Easton has opened that door for you!
Date published: 2008-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute must have! I loved the first book in the series, "Loose Ends" and was anxious for more. "Above Ground" is a strong sequel that once again immerses you in the dark reality of the drug world. This book is filled with excitement, emotion and well developed characters that you'll really feel for. The book makes for a compelling read - you'll have a very hard time putting it down once you start. I can't wait for the next installment!
Date published: 2007-07-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what I'm talking about! In today's world, we have lost sight of justice for a victim and continue to excuse what is wrong. If you like an alternative, ie; revenge....this will do it for you. The violence IS necessary because it is both a reality and a chilling slice of the ugly underworld a 'Jack Taggart' has to go. I recommend reading Mr. Easton's first novel "Loose Ends" then read this. There is more to come in his third and fourth books so catch up NOW! Finally, the real bonus is if you live in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, B.C., reality is really driven home.
