    One thought on “Palindrome: A Lamb and Lavagnino Mystery”

    1. This is an entertaining thriller with likable characters. The plot is bold and original. This was a pretty quick read for me. The whole idea of a tape recording what someone said after they were murdered really intrigued me. Not to mention that anyone who had listened to this tape were now strange things afterward. Instantly got me hooked.

    2. Palindrome isn't the genre of book I usually go for, but I'd heard such good things about it that I figured I'd give it a shot and I'm glad I did. Rinsky's got a real gift for imagery and putting you in the scene without being too flowery or obvious about it. His characters and scenes come to life in a way that may want you to reconsider reading this before going to bed at night. The story was so engaging that I ended up staying up many hours past my bedtime in order to finish it; now I'm pumped [...]

    3. Crazy good!I've had this book for sometime now, and finally got around to reading it. Man, what a creepy book! ( And I mean in a good way). This was actually one of the most truly scary books I've ever read. Talk about tense! I barreled through this thing while I kept looking over my shoulder the whole time. Who the hell is this E.Z. Rinsky? and how does he top this one? I don't know , but I plan on reading anything I can find by this author.I love it when I get blindsided by some new author lik [...]

    4. Elmore Leonard-ish main characters with plenty of language, violence, and some sex - not for the faint of heart. Intriguing plot.

    5. I've wanted to read this book for a while, but my library didn’t own a copy, and I’m trying not to buy any books until I read more of the books I already own… But, I found an ebook through the digital library, so it’s all good now… This was a mystery/suspense/thriller/(kinda)horror book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I just saw that the next book in the series would be published in the spring, which I will definitely read. That’s my endorsement, so now; let’s get down to the nitty- [...]

    6. Great read. Kept me engaged despite first person present tense which is usually a non-starter for me. There was the perfect mix of fiction noir, humor and creepiness. I found myself in turns laughing out loud and staring at the dark corners of the room with hair on end. I would recommend this for a fun read. It's a good book. I certainly will be looking at the author's other works.

    7. Gumshoe retroIt kept me interested, good twists, but very male centric. Not thought provoking. I would recommend it as a fun read.

    8. This author has itRead his 2 books in 2 weeks and I was trying to read slow to savor them. Really good stuff!

    9. This is my first novel from EZ Rinsky and I highly enjoyed it.Mystery and murder, filled with lots of suspense and unnerved thrills of sleuthing around. All my favorite things put together for an adventure filled read. Here we have Private Investigator Frank Lamb, low on funds and practically jobless, embarrassingly just got done "persuading" an overpriced ice cream seller to accept a four dollar pay for a six dollar ice cream cup with his megnun gun tied to his waist. Yes, it had came down to [...]

    10. This is a refreshing take on the mystery/thriller. Don't get me wrong, I love Mitch Rapp, John Puller, and Jack Reacher, but they are all highly trained, big, strong, really smart guys with amazing memories who can pretty much dispense with the baddies at will. This guy, Frank Lamb, is not one of those. He's middle-aged private investigator raising a 10-year-old daughter on his own. He's a little soft, and although certainly not stupid, not brilliant either. You know, like most of us. His sideki [...]

    11. I'm trying to decide whether to rate this 3 or 4. It's a good book. I enjoyed it. I suspect ratings are somewhat inflated, but also a 3 doesn't quite do the book justice. This is a 3.6 for me that I'm rounding up to 4.Overall, good book, fun mystery and I didn't guess the answer, but it totally make sense when it got there. I was concerned that an important question was going to be left unresolved (with an 'it's bad' excuse) but it was not. Instead cleverly just enough was given to make sense wi [...]

    12. Palindrome is a thoroughly funny and highly intriguing story whether you read it forward or backward. It hooks you on the first page with a bizarre and grotesque conspiracy that will keep you turning the page until you can discover the truth in an eerie climax that’ll haunt you long after you close the book.Frank Lamb, Palindrome’s infinitely self-deprecating hero, is a breath of fresh air. There’s a characteristic uncertainty in his observations that make it seem like you’re figuring ou [...]

    13. Really enjoyed this book! Never read anything by the author before and I was in the mood for a horror. I stumbled across this book and decided to pick it up. I don't read as much as I think I do, so it took me a little while to get through it. I read it on my kindle almost every night before falling asleep but the last two days I couldn't put it down. It's a great thriller!

    14. I went to the author's Bar mitzvah when he was just a boy! Overall, it's pretty funny that "Rinsky" isn't a palindrome but the book is called Palindrome. Overall, I would recommend this book for insane goof balls. This book is frankly hilarious, but also includes very serious moments. The book has a beginning, but also concludes strongly. Overall, you won't be sure if you're wiping your tears from sadness or utter hilarity when you read this book. It's very nice to see Jewish writers finally hav [...]

    15. What an interesting book; very different. Frank "finds" things, whatever the client is looking for. A gorgeous woman hires him to find a cassette recording, made by a kidnapper, of her sister's death. She pays a lot of money and offers a lot more if Frank can recover it in a short period of time. Frank & his friend actually tie a lot of clues & ties together to figure out where the cassette is, but the trail (and the people along it) is very strange. Several deaths are involved, and the [...]

    16. I am surprised that E.Z. Rinsky is a new author. Palindrome is amazing for a debut novel. I started the book before I went to bed and figured I would read a few chapters, but before I knew it, I was finished and up way past my bedtime. Frank and Courtney are well developed and interesting. I cannot wait for another book with these characters. This is a definite read if you want a fun and exciting book that will keep you guessing.

    17. I never thought I was a fan of mystery novels, but this book might make me rethink that The story is absolutely gripping, the characters are incredibly vivid, and the prose is smooth and often very clever. More than being just a thriller, this story actually tackles some pretty heavy questions about life after death, and offers some pretty original answers. Can't recommend it highly enough--clear your weekend schedule and enjoy!

    18. I can't believe this is a debut novel! The characters are so complex, there are so many twists and turns, I couldn't put this book down! I can not wait for E. Z. Rinsky's next book! I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since I finished reading it. I think I'm going to have to read it again! <3 :)

    19. Good and creepyReally enjoyed this read. Super creepy and I was happy that I was never able to put everything together and figure it all out. I'm honestly still not sure if it's a horror, mystery, or crime novel, or if it's all three. Good stuff. Going to go look for other books by this author right now.

    20. What a mystery! After taking my shvitz, and bloating slightly I just had to hear what was on that tape. I couldn't put this book down. The humor and descriptions in this book made me laugh at inappropriate times. The author can write about intensely horrific subjects while keeping the mood light and pleasant. Reminds me of tom Robbins or Vonnegut. Highly recommended read!

    21. Wow! Absolutely loved it. Frank and Courtney are my new favorite detectives--what incredible characters. I almost couldn't read late at night because some of the imagery is creepy as hell, haha, but wow. Such original ideas I'm telling all my friends to read this, and can't wait for E.Z.'s next book

    22. A terrific book.I read a lot. And this is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. It has everything. A great plot, good characterization , humor , and it's very well written to boot . A real page turner - I just couldn't put it down.

    23. Fast paced and excitingI really enjoyed this read. The characters were funny and believable. Its definitely a thriller that keeps you guessing and doesn't disappoint, a great book to take too bedm

    24. Maybe it’s a good book for those who love horror stories. But since it is not my kind of favorite book, I couldn’t read more than 50% of it. There is no point of writing a review for books that are not your favorite genre.I just started it because of its high mark.

    25. Very interesting with lots of twists and turns. Cannot remember ever reading a book with a similar plot. What an imagination the author has. Could not put this book down. Mr. Rinsky, I am looking forward to your next book.

    26. What a page turner. I hardly wanted to put it down. The mystery driving the story is great because it takes us into some pretty unique, unexpected places. Can't wait for Hollywood to adapt this one. It'll make a great flick.
