Reviews - What do customers think about Burnt Offerings?
Superbly written, this deserves to be a NY Times Best-Seller!! Jan 28, 2007
I'm a former Chief of Police from the Seattle area, and started my career in So Cal, so I've had my own share of law enforcement experiences, many of which I related with while reading this book. The culture, crimes and personalities detailed in "Burnt Offerings" are woven together as only a master storyteller could. Strong language and situations, though not excessively overdone, reflect the underbelly of society that most never see, or want to know about. This book is a page turner that you will not want to put down! I can only hope the author, Chuck Newsome, plans another book.
BURNT OFFERINGS BY CHARLES NEWSOME Aug 25, 2006
Awesome!!!! I loved this book. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It leaves you wanting more. Based on factual experiences, it has every element in it to keep it exciting. It sends your heart pounding in suspense from the first pages. I can't wait to hear more from this author!
Compelling and gripping. A great read. Feb 23, 2005
Mr. Newsome has taken the reader into the real world of law enforcement, in perhaps the most violent city in the U.S. Nothing gussied up here. He portrays police officers as few writers do, men and women asked to do a thankless, damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't job by a society which cares little for the toll it takes on these extraordinary individuals. I literally could not put this book down. Besides a tremendous storyline and character developement, there are many surprises along the way. The ending? Well, I guess one needs to read the book.

Ready for the Big Screen Nov 30, 2004
Mr. Newsome's first published novel had me assigning actors to the key players in this nail biter... I was drawn into this story and the imagery was as clear as on the big screen. This story has the making of a "block buster". I can't wait for the screen version and, better yet, can't wait for the next novel from Charles Newsome. Keep them coming!
