A GOOD CRIME NOVEL WITH SOME ROMANCE THROWN IN
Review and Award from Trudi LoPreto, Readers’ Favorite
“Texas Dead has twists and turns that I will not spoil for you but I will only say it is a worthwhile read. Suspense, mystery, humor, romance, charming and lovable characters, and a very real plot. Gensburger has created a charming, sweet, and very likable detective along with her friends, bringing Corpus Christi, Texas alive. I highly recommend Texas Dead as your next reading experience.”
Review from B. Creech, The Online Book Club
“Texas Dead by Willian Gensburger is an epic crime novel filled with suspense and murder and a tender, unexpected love story. Gensburger did an excellent job of developing the characters in this story…. What I liked most about this book was Maxie’s character. The violent aspect of the story was not overdone. Typically, I am offended by all three; however, the few situations present in this book did not bother me. I recommend this book to adult readers who enjoy a good crime novel with some romance thrown in.”
Review from Dan Ashley, News Anchor, ABC-7, San Francisco Bay Area, CA.
“Looking for a great read? Check out William Gensburger‘s new book, “Texas Dead”. It’s very clever and engaging.”
Review from Thomas Anderson, Editor-in-chief, Literary Titan
“Not your average gritty murder mystery—plenty of humor injected into the story to make this hard-boiled mystery feel light and fun as well as deeply intriguing. I can not hold back from appreciating the author’s talent in conveying a traumatic experience like paralysis in a motivational…way. Vivid scenes and backdrops…really bring the story to life. “A variety of interesting characters…kept me curious and captivated the whole time. This is a thrilling crime fiction novel with brave-hearted characters, intelligent decisions, and shocking revelations.”
