Reviews - What do customers think about From Crime to Crime: Mind-Boggling Tales of Mystery and Murder?

You Go, Guys!  Sep 22, 2008
Dennis Palumbo makes his Smart Guys Marching Society's Sunday afternoon get-togethers something I want to join... and I'm a girl. Each chapter could be a 'stand alone'... but I found this book one I couldn't put down! The characters are so vivid I feel like I know them. I'd like to adopt Isaac as MY uncle!
Urban, urbane tough guys  Sep 9, 2008
I read few mysteries and hadn't actually heard of the genre "armchair mysteries" per se, but this book of short armchair mysteries is a pleasure to read. The group of men who gather to philosophize and, oh by the way, solve a murder mystery every so often, seems very real. All in all, a pleasing combo of rough-and-tough realism (the language, the crimes, the Los Angeles settings) and quirky subthemes. A nice change of pace from heavier fare.
If you want more fun, you have to go to another planet  Sep 5, 2008
Dennis Palumbo hits this one out of the park. I've rarely been so immediately pulled into a collection of mysteries as quickly as I was by Crime to Crime. The characters in the Smart Guys Marching Society are so naturally and beautifully drawn you'd think the author was a master calligrapher. The dialogue does such a fast and funny pinball bounce that I wouldn't dare take a break for fear of missing the next great line as the plot speeds forward with an enviable rhythm and flow. And the setup for solving these crimes, with beloved Isaac at the lead (boy, could I use an Isaac in my life!) is one of the most enjoyable approaches to crime solving I have ever read. Okay, best part last: every story is so thoroughly inventive that I couldn't wait to read the next one, though I knew I had little chance of solving the crime myself. This book made me absolutely delighted to be mistaken! Pick it up and read it - you'll see.
Fantastic Crime Fiction  Aug 1, 2008
"From Crime to Crime" is in the Sherlock Holmes school of crime fiction -- when something is askew in the world, it takes a truly observant detective, schooled in human psychology and scientific logic to make it right. The joy in these stories comes from that moment when the inexplicable is explained. Whether prime numbers or a century-old poem is the clue, there is always an answer, and the reader delights in the deft and trustworthy characters (be they members of "The Smart Guy Society" or Albert Einstein himself) explaining to us precisely what, how and why something has gone horribly wrong. In a marketplace full of crime stories that are gritty, dark and seem to dwell on what is vacant and irredeemable about our society, "From Crime to Crime" is full of stories determined to make order out of chaos -- that any smart guy with logic and observation truly can save the world. This was an absolute joy to read -- truly engaging, entertaining and pleasurable.
Like Eating Potato Chips: Can't read just one!!  Jul 18, 2008
A terrific read from start to finish. Loved these tales by Dennis Palumbo. Not only are the stories interesting puzzles to solve-- "Okay, Isaac, what do you think?" which allows the reader to participate fully in solving the crime given the clues presented--they are also great fun to read. The characters have unique voices and the stories are laced with a lot of humor. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying these short stories. Better yet, I challenge anyone to just read one of them and stop. I couldn't put this book down. It's that addicting. Bravo, Dennis! Loved your book.
