Readers Rate Deadly Lullaby 5 Stars!

What a great surprise . . . . [T]he novel introduces us to a son who, while still shady, is much more savvy, much more unconventional, even–strangely–more principled, than his prototype [his father]. And that not only elevates the father/son struggle, it makes Deadly Lullaby work. . . . McClure is the Real Deal.” by Susan O’Neill — 5 stars @amazonbooks

Exciting Story. . . many outstanding twists and turns. . . . Not predictable, not cookie cutter, very well written. I was cheering for the father and son, even though they were not wearing white hats!” by SC — 5 stars @amazonbooks

One of the best books I’ve read in the past decade . . . Robert McClure is a natural, gifted with an impeccable talent for narrative, character development, unexpected twists and turns, and dialogue. Couldn’t put it down.” by Craig Layne — 5 stars @amazonbooks

Wonderful Original Take . . .  the author’s dueling first person point of view from a father and son in a strained relationship was an original point of view I have not seen before. Their differing perspectives as events were unfolding kept the story fresh, interesting, and exciting. I cannot wait to see what this author will come up with next . . . you won’t be able to put it down. by Matthew Williams — 5 stars @amazonbooks

Very action oriented and the characters were well developed. Kept me interested throughout. I hope he writes more real soon!” by Mike Wathen — 5 stars @goodreads

“It’s humorous with a little violence and crime thrown in but in a good way if there is ever a good way for anyone to commit a crime.  . . .  Great read about family dynamics with a mystery thrown in.” by CL — 5 stars @goodreads

“McClure makes something beautiful from the criminal activity”, by Jay Williams — 5 stars

A Different Kind of Beautiful . . .  LA underworld is backdrop for amazing story of father-son relationship,” by Kayak Jay — 5 stars @amazonbooks
