From a reader:
All of us with kindles watch for the bargains - admit it. I got this book because it was a bargain and had good reviews. It was simply put, terrific. The mystery was excellent from the get-go and the main character, Thomas Prescott, is very funny: "I'm not into politics. The last time I voted was for Carrie Underwood."
In the opening scene, Prescott is in Maine suffering from depression on Thanksgiving. He hops a plane to his home town of Seattle and almost immediately finds a dead body adrift on the shore outside his boyhood home. Even though he is an ex-cop and retired consultant to the FBI, he can't keep his hands out of the investigation. The investigation leads him to different suspects, investigators, supporting cast members and locales.
The book has the very good mystery, the excellent main character, very good supporting characters (no matter how minor, none are cutouts) and there is the added element of a bit of science thrown into the mix. To divulge it would be a small spoiler, so I won't, but I always like to learn a bit of something while being thoroughly entertained.
Halfway through the book I ordered Mr. Pirog's other two books. I then thought: "Uh oh, what if the ending isn't any good?" After the ending, I was even happier I will have two more of Mr. Pirog's books to look forward to reading. --Richard A. Mitchell
Book Description:
His love life in shambles, Thomas Prescott returns to Seattle, the very place he fled from after his parents' deaths nearly a decade earlier. Just as Thomas is getting settled in, he sees a body floating in the private cove behind his boyhood home. It is a woman. But not just any woman. The governor of Washington.
As the suspense ratchets, and the twists unfold, Thomas is thrown into the middle of the biggest murder investigation in Washington state history. Prescott is forced to confront the demons from his past and unearths a new enemy, one that couldn't possibly be human, one that has haunted man since the dawn of time...
More reviews:
Pirog engages readers with a tight plot, well-developed characters, historical context, and just enough pop culture to keep you begging for more. Thomas Prescott is witty, arrogant -yet generous, and operates on just enough id to make him adorable. He is my favorite naughty character by far! Every page begs to be turned, every chapter begs to be completed, and the end leaves you begging for the next book! --Tami
I read approximately 8-10 books a month and have for years so that should give an idea of how impressed I am with his author. I am writing this review because this author DESERVES to be read. Refreshingly funny, quirky and still produces a many layered well thought out mystery thriller. "Gray Matter" adds even more than just chuckles and a thought provoking who done it, this story even went as far as to throw in tears. I was mesmerized from the first page by not only the main plot but by the sub plot as well, the ending left me surprised and with tears in my eyes. WOW! --Tif Saucer

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gray Matter This is an easy read and entertaining tho the prose is somewhat lacking in places. There are some parts too that I found were slightly over the top. I would actually give this a rating of two and a half stars

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfocused, too violent. The book began interestingly, with humour and some mystery. Around halfway through, it began to lack cohesion. To hold the plot together, unnecessary violence was included in a rather weak story line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it but. I liked this book a lot. The plot was well thought out and the characters well developed although some were stereotypes. What lets the book down is poor editing. For instance the city north of Seattle is Everett not Everest. The bottom of your foot is the heel but not the heal! These small things matter to a critical reader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and hilarious I found myself reading this book and laughing like an idiot at all of the clever and stupid quips. What a wonderful read! On top of that there is a very respectable murder mystery with clever twists. Unputdownable! Read it where nobody can hear you laughing!
