    1. 'Caribbean Moon' pulled me in from the start. I couldn't put it down. Even though I had a clue as to who the 'bad' guy was, it was still quite an adventure. The storyline was well written and very thrilling. If you don't like gruesome details, this book probably isn't for you. But for me, it was part of the story and added to the story as a whole. The characters were great. Manny is a great lead and an even better detective. Sophie is a spitfire. I loved her go-get-em attitude. I loved the added [...]

    2. Walking in the footsteps of a psychopathic killer, the reader is soon mesmerized and enthralled with the workings of Robert Peppercorn’s, aka Eli Jenkins mind as he travels from one victim to another. Diagnosed with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Robert patiently waited, playing an Oscar deserving role, until the doctors of the Lansing, Michigan mental hospital were sure they had booked a rare success and he was cured.Manfred Robert Williams is a detective in the Lansing Police Departmen [...]

    3. The first thing I learned in my journalism classes was show, don't tell, a lesson this author has not learned. He keeps telling the reader how smart and gifted Manny is, but what he shows the reader is a team of inept crime fighters. I was mostly liking this book because I kept thinking that even though this Peppercorn guy was the obvious suspect from the start, there must be some twist coming because otherwise these are the dumbest detectives ever. There was a twist, but it wasn't enough. This [...]

    4. It was very high on , but I didn't care for it much. My biggest complaint was that they heroes just reacted to the villain in almost all cases. By that I mean they didn't use any internal strengths to overcome obstacles and force the flow events in a direction they wanted, or at least interrupt the flow the villain had planned. I like stories where the heroes struggle and overcome. In this book they were basically puppets in the hands of the villain.In the beginning I was also a little creep-ed [...]

    5. Cruising murderI gave this book high marks as it hooked and reeled me in from the beginning. Characters were well developed and an emotional attachment unique to each of them was formed. Parts of the story were a little too graphic for my gentle mind. If you like NCIS and other police-based stories, this book will not disappoint you.

    6. I loved it. It was a fast moving who done it with some very interesting people. I was amazed at the number of characters in this book that had to be kept track ofd it was done with a certain degree of elegance and style.Loved the story. This is my first time reading one of his booksI don't think it will be the last time I check his work out

    7. Definitely do not take this book on a cruise to read.ople on a cruise ship aregetting murdered right & left

    8. 4 and 1 / 2 starsThis book starts out a little slow – and confusing. I can only assume that the author did this because the book is the first in a series and he wanted to properly introduce his characters. However, if the reader sticks with it, it gets much more exciting and action-packed. We meet Manny Williams and his wife Louise as they embark on a Caribbean cruise on the Ocean Duchess along with several other members of the Lansing (Michigan) Police Department. Louise is awaiting results o [...]

    9. Caribbean Moon by Rick Murcer3 Faerie PointsBefore I start in on the main review of this book I need to go on a bit of a rant about something that ticks me off about books, which was brought back up for me with this particular book. In one section of this book, I won't mention where due to spoilers, the author has a character talk about fags and queers in a basic derogatory manner. In Murcer's case I can forgive him somewhat because it is from the viewpoint of a killer, but a part of me can't ev [...]

    10. Finished, but way too much gore and blood (or too much description). Also, the similes get tiresome. They seem to be in every paragraph. If I saw the word "like" one more time, I was going to scream. Won't continue the series.

    11. I picked up this book at the Michigan Authors on Michigan Avenue event in December 2012 and finally had the opportunity to take it up and read it. I was excited to be reading something from a fellow Michigan author, and thrillers are kinda my thing.CarribeanCaribbean Moon is written in a gritty, raw, cop-speak fashion and I had to look at Mr. Murcer’s website to see if he is or was a policeman. I could not determine that from his biography, but went ahead with the book, thoroughly enjoying the [...]

    12. In CARRIBEAN MOON, Lansing Michigan Sergeant Detective Manny Williams joins some of the other members of his department in Puerto Rico and then on a Carribean cruise as they celebrate the marriage of one of their own. As they leave their hotel to get to the ship, he sees police cars and an ambulance pull up. He continues to the ship, knowing something major happened but he realized he was on vacation. Once aboard the ship, however, the gruesome murders continue, the first victims being members o [...]

    13. The description of "Caribbean Moon" some places says it is “written in the tradition of Connelly, Patterson of old, and JA Konrath.” I was on the verge of writing this off as marketing hype; Murcer’s book is good, but not at the level of those three, nor, if you evaluate the words, is that claim being made. Then I realized that the statement does give a hint of what Murcer is aiming for and, in the JA Konrath comparison, is the hook to describe the qualities of this book.Konrath’s "Jack [...]

    14. From the start, we're told who the killer is, which instantly makes this unremarkable. It's not a murder mystery, it's a cat and mouse game and a rather unbelievable one at that: almost everyone the killer wants revenge against ends up on the same cruise ship. How convenient. If that's not enough, he's also got victims lined up for every port just because he's a killer and has to kill things.There are a lot of characters to keep track of, which isn't necessarily a problem. I like a large cast wh [...]

    15. Excellent setup for the next book in the series.This crime thriller definitely left me wanting more, with its intense action and compelling (albeit disturbing) glimpses into a deranged killer’s mind. Warning: this is a gritty book, not for the faint of heart.Murcer has a distinctive writing style, with metaphors galore and vivid descriptions. Although I might like to see fewer metaphors and less description during action scenes, the author uses his time in the characters’ heads to flesh out [...]

    16. This was interesting. I thought when it came to detective thrillers, the reader isn’t introduced to the killer in the first chapter. Kind of takes away the suspense element. Overall it’s not a bad read, nor is it great. I lost credibility of the plot when the tour guide became one of Peppercorn’s victims. Who was going to drive the tour bus back to the boat? There are a lot of bodies in this one and they are, to say the least, brutally murdered. If you have a weak stomach, this isn’t for [...]

    17. roller coaster ride!first paragraphsCHAPTER-1 “I’ll need to see your ID, sir.” “What?” Manny Williams stared at the pretty, Latino barmaid. He must have looked like a deer in headlights because she started to grin, rescued her composure, and asked again. “Uh, I’m thirty-eight years old. I don’t . . .” “Having trouble gettin’ served, Williams?” Glancing to his left he noticed Sophie Lee, his diminutive partner as she stood a few feet away wearing one of her famous gotcha g [...]

    18. I enjoyed this mystery/thriller. Police detective Manny Williams is taking a well-deserved cruise vacation along with some co-workers and a newlywed couple (daughter of one of the co-workers). The bodies start to pile up before they've even boarded the ship, and they keep piling up - getting closer and closer to Manny and his wife, and the MO is suspiciously like that of a serial killer Manny and his team put in jail some years earlier.Good: It was nice to have a character who is happily married [...]

    19. This is a fast-paced mystery with an interesting plot, strong characters and twists that keep you guessing. Sarcastic banter between some of the characters adds a touch of humor.Detective Manny Williams and his wife attend a fellow officer's wedding and then the families and friends, including Manny's partner, Sophie, and his department chief (the groom's father), go on a Caribbean cruise vacation.The vacation quickly becomes an FBI investigation when people are killed at each port stop and then [...]

    20. Mixed ReactionsThis book was actually quite a page turner. But I had some positive and negative considerations about it. First of all Mr Murcer was overboard in the book with sexual references, yet he wasn't overly graphic and presented some of them tactfully, particularly with married couples. At the same time, several of the references were at unlikely timesch as while searching a victim's room for clues. Also thought at times the detectives/police WERE careless in their actions, being they we [...]

    21. LAPD Sergeant Manny Williams and his partner Sophia Lee are attending a wedding in Puerto Rico, but they’re still mentally working a brutal murder case back home. Then a killer is stalking the wedding party. The killer, Eli Jenkins, is killed when Williams and Lee identify him, so the case is over—or is it?Caribbean Moon by Rick Murcer is a chilling thriller that follows in great detail the procedures of a pair of tough cops as they race against time to find a vicious killer. At the same tim [...]

    22. This is a thriller that moves inexorably from the lapping of water tickling your toes to a tsunami that washes over you as you're running like hell to get out of its way. Manny is gonna be one of those detectives you talk about in the future like Mike Hammer. An interesting peek into the mind of a psychopathic killer without empathy for his victims. Wonderful descriptions of Caribbean locations had me reaching for the sunscreen. A good plot with well-developed characters, and the twist at the en [...]

    23. In Caribbean Moon, Rick Murcer spins a different kind of crime story web. Instead of only seeing the action through the eyes of the protagonists, in particular Detective Manny Williams of Lancing PD, we also see the thrill of the act through the eyes of the antagonist, and soon realize that what looked like it might have been a MacGuffin for MacGuffin's sake is a clue to what is to come.Well written and thought out, the twist towards the end is predictable to the awake reader, but does not detra [...]

    24. This was a good book. Just a couple of things I didn't like.1 From the beginning you knew who "did it" (Though there was a little twist I won't give that away)2 The story was told by A LOT of different characters. Manny was the main point of view but it was almost as if the author had to let EVERY character in the book tell something from their point of view. At times it was a little confusing.These were my only 2 issues with this book. This is the first time I have read this author and I will p [...]

    25. This is a great cruise thriller and is well developed with quick drop dead action for many of the characters, crafted in a way that is authentic and real to life in many ways, in fact, it's downright scary in that the psychos are really out in the world just as described and they are regularly let out of prison. If folks only knew how often, you wouldn't be refering to this book as fiction. Well done, I will buy the next one in the series. Thanks for the good read.

    26. This book was alright. The romance in it sounds like it was written from the perspective of a romantic who is fourteen years old. The couples who have been together for many years talk and act like immature teens when it comes to romance.As for the murder/thriller mystery. meh. It was alright. There is a twist at the end. If it wasn't for the twist, and the likeable characters,minus the silly interactions between them, it would have received one star.

    27. This would have rated higher had it not been for the sheer and total stupidity of one of the characters, who, despite being aware that there was a killer on a vengeance mission, who obviously had knowledge of each of their habits, chose to stick to her routine and go for a runON HER OWN! Sorry, it was at this point that I felt the story fell apart from the tightly crafted drama at the beginning.

    28. Fantastic story, interesting and personable chatacters, extremely well written plot!!I was entertained by this book till the well written and surprising end! This author has proven himself to be a Master of mystery and extremely knowledgeable of human interaction as well as how people think in certain situations. Exceptionally well written. I'll definitely buy more of his works.
