Here's what

Fans are saying

Let me start by saying I am often disappointed by the bargain books I buy for my Kindle. Not so with Murder on Potrero Hill (A Peyton Brooks' Mystery). I borrowed it for free as part of my Prime membership and thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Hamilton creates a good balance between realistic character development and believable action.

I was so impressed with Hamilton's engaging style, I bought the second book in the series, Murder in the Tenderloin (A Peyton Brooks' Mystery)--another excellent read--which further develops the characters of Payton and D'Angelo and even includes Jake in a surprising new role.

I'm definitely looking forward to Hamilton's next foray into murder and intrigue on the streets of San Francisco.Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? Yes NoReport abuse | Permal

Although ths book is quite a bargain for the Kindle version, it is worth so much more. This mystery had me hooked from the first page.

A young man is facing murder charges for something he didn't do, and both he and the reader wonder who he can trust. Page by page, the truth is revealed interwoven with great suspense and action.

San Francisco is not just the setting, but a wonderful character in the story as well. I am not typically a murder mystery fan, but heard about this book and gave it a try.

I finished it in a day and a half and couldn't put it down. I love the detective, Peyton Brooks, and was so thankful there was a second book featuring her character. I can't wait for more! Buy it for yourself and you'll be a fan as well!
