Reviews for "Two Times A Sucker"
|Reviewed by Daniel Jackson
|Best Crime Investigation story :
Who would be murdered next..??? This would be the question comes in your mind when you start reading the book until the end. This is an excellent detective book and I am sure readers interested in reading crime and detective novels would not miss it.
The main character is Tom Swanson, who is a private detective. He got to know that his cousin was murdered by someone in a different city where he came for work. Tom traveled all the way from Miami to New York to find out who was the murderer. The sequences that follows after his investigation and attempt to nab the culprits, was written in the more enjoyable manner. We can feel a kind of suspense when we turn each page. The narration during the fighting sequences involving Tom and the enemies are portrayed in a more realistic manner and will surely gets the applause of readers.
Author David Snowdon had done an excellent job in maintaining the suspense until the end. The book has several twists and turns and one would not imagine, even in the slightest possible manner, on the climax. This book is yet another feather on David Snowdon’s cap.
I recommend this book for all crime and thriller lovers....

|Murder Mystery at its Best!
Two Times a Sucker gives readers a good murder mystery written in a crisp style as the story develops with a host of characters. Private Investigator Tom Swanson travels from his home base in Miami to New York City where his first cousin, Mason Dunkley has been killed.
The characters are developed through the unique use of dialogue and observations by Swanson. Swanson keeps looking for the killer and takes a trip to North Carolina and then London. Along the way he discovers some surprising information about his cousin.
The sad truth of any murder, including this fictional one is that finding the killer does not bring a loved one back and the author did not lose sight of that fact as he told this story. The reality of the story and how murder changes the lives of family left behind makes Two Times a Sucker worth reading.

|Snowdon does not disappoint
David Snowdon is the man if you are interested in crime fiction or action. His `Coin for a Killer' and `Diamonds for a Dollar' were books that I enjoyed immensely so when I got `Two Times a Sucker', I was sure I was in for a treat.
The most striking thing about Snowdon's story-telling is his ease of spilling the story to your mind. He will introduce the characters in such a way that they make the most of your attention. Tom Swanson's character is impulsive, strong-willed, no-nonsense and Snowdon has done a great job developing it and letting it grow on the reader's mind. the story moves from Miami to New York, North Carolina and London and the transition of the story through this travel makes it a joy-ride to read.
I was so hooked to the story that I kept on reading it through the day and it kept on growing on me. The action and the mystery have a perfect mix in this book and as you turn pages you slowly get deeper and deeper into the plot. The language is easy yet crisp, the southern accent mentions actually make you imagine the lines that way, and Swanson keeps things coming, surprising you constantly with his perseverance and impulsiveness in finding his cousin's killer.
No spoilers here but the way the story progresses, the impression that this might just be another murder mystery gets replaced by sheer interest and amazement. Mason's flashback is interesting as you don't see it coming for a while and it is suddenly there. Mason's impression as a character also surprises you after you get to know him better as a character. If you buy this book, turning pages is what you will do until it is over. Loved it!

|I am always excited when I receive a new book to read. I like the idea of getting lost in the words of others. It takes me away from the reality of real life. So when I received this book Two Times A Sucker I knew I was in for a treat.
I like to know a little about a book before I divulge but on this occasion I decided to go in blind. All I was given was that it was a thriller.
Two Times A Sucker is the story of an african american detective who in my opinion goes on the hunt to avenge his cousins death. An average story one would presume but as you engross yourself deeper and deeper into the story you realise that not all is as it seems to be. The best kind!
Tom Swanson is a cool, handsome guy from Miami who is about to embark on a journey to New York to find out the truth about his cousin Mason Dunkley. What Tom is in for, is a journey of secrets, lies and a huge awakening about who his cousin really was.
I really enjoyed this book. The writing was powerful and slick. I loved the characters and he portrays Tom very well. I like to imagine what someone looks like in my own mind with the help of the author and he does not disappoint. I read this book in a week and as a busy working girl that is impressive!
It kept me on the edge of my toes constantly, wanting to lose myself the minute I finished work.
This book promises action, secrets, travel and mystery. All in all great ingredients for an amazing read.

One of the best crime detective thriller - Two times a Sucker - is sure to captivate the minds of the readers. The book has many twists and turns, that makes the reader guessing who would be the murderer. The story line was excellent, and the narration was clean, without creating any confusion on the characters, though the author had frequently introduced many new characters. Even though the story moves in a fast pace, the author never let the suspense down. David Snowdon, had given all characters vital importance.
Tom Swanson, who is the central character of the story, is depicted as a strong willed person. He is a private detective determined to book the killers of his Cousin, so he travels all the way from Miami to New York to find a clue. His never-turn-back attitude was clearly visible, though the author didn't make any special description on his character, it was evident from different situations he encountered with.
The action sequences are worth reading again and again. In one occasion Tom was almost hit by the culprits and miraculously escapes. When we read we could feel as if it happens before our eyes. There was not a single dull moment throughout the story. This book will certainly remain in my personal library for many years.

|Fast-Paced Suspense Thriller
"Two times a sucker" by David Snowdon is a fast paced thriller which certainly makes everyone to enjoy till the last page. It was a about a crime detective, Tom Swanson, who takes all challenges to book the culprits involved in the cold blooded murder of his cousin Mason Dunkley.
There was no clue of who killed him and for what purpose. David had managed to introduce different characters with ease, There are many surprise elements that takes the readers to different zone.
Though the story revolves around the murder of Mason Dunkley, you will not find any flashback of Mason Dunkley and no conversation of his was found throughout the book, which I feel is the best part. Until the last page, the suspense was kept by author, not letting the reader to guess, who the killer was.
As we read through the last chapter we could see the story itself unraveling the mystery behind the killing. The action sequences were beautifully written and make one feel like watching a James Bond movie. I recommend this book for all crime thriller lovers.

|I have been fortunate enough to have read David Snowdon before, so when I got my hands on Two Times a Sucker I had very high expectations. And I wasn't disappointed. This book follows PI Tom Swanson through his investigation into his cousin's death. David does a great job of building suspense in this book through his tight dialogue and 3D characters. The pace of the storytelling is fast, but so is the action. His ability to draw you into the story allows you to put yourself directly in the action rather than being a passive onlooker. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am eagerly anticipating his next release. This is another great hit for David Snowdon. I highly recommend it.|

|"Two Times a Sucker" is a fast-paced thriller set in steamy Miami and gritty New York. African American Private Investigator Tom Swanson heads to the Big Apple after his cousin is murdered. He uses his sleuthing skills to get the to bottom of things. He ultimately finds out his cousin may not have been what he seemed.
David Snowdon has managed to write a page turning thriller. He captures the Miami Vice-Esque sheen of Miami, as well as the grittiness on New York. Good read.
