Reviews for A Song for Charlie:
"Johnny Scotch is a wonderfully unique character. He's smooth, classy, and able to handle his Scotch--yet he's also dangerous. What I loved about Johnny was, no matter how dangerous he got, the man had principles, morals, even empathy. Using his own book of ethics, this guy deals with the world on his terms, with a glass of Scotch in hand, of course. An absolutely dynamic read. Couldn't put it down. Delightful ..." -Jonas Saul, Best Selling Author of the Sarah Roberts series
"The pulpy, noir style makes Song a summer strut jam, and the lyrical phrasing will be the ear worm you can keep grooving to long after you've closed the back cover." -Benjamin Gorman, Author of The Sum of Our Gods, Corporate High School, and The Digital Storm
"Music and mayhem, sirens and scotch, A Song for Charlie is crime noir meets smooth jazz with a serpentine plot that will have you hooked until the final note fades." -Miko Azul, Author of The Staff of Fire and Bone
"John Dover is an amazing writer. He breathes life into words that transcends the page. In Johnny Scotch: Danger in Bass Clef he seduces the reader into his smokey jazz and scotch flavored world. A noir world of crime, booze, and dames, punctuated by magical interludes of scotch on the tongue, jazz in the ears.I don't even like jazz, and I don't drink alcohol at all, yet I yearned to fall into the pages and soak up the ambience." Rob Easton
“This was a straight up pulp-style action story with a femme fatale, hired thugs, sketchy cops and a set-up against the protagonist that builds up to a showdown in an abandoned amusement park. The pacing was tight as it should be for such a tale and the characters were larger-than-life yet believable. A nice surprise is that nestled in with the violence, sex and tough-guy introspection are vivid descriptions of booze and food that give a sense of the hero as not just uber tough but a real flesh-and-blood human with appetites that go beyond the bedroom. I recommend this book for readers who want a fast, straightforward two-fisted story.” Charles Austin Muir -- Author, This is a Horror Book
