    2. When Bob Brink asked me to review his debut novel, Murder in Palm Beach, I was unable to do so immediately due to other pressures on my time That was a shame, bacause when I started the book, I really enjoyed it Of course, anybody who reads this blog knows I espaecially enjoy murder mysteries Bob was a journalist before he turned to novel writing so it is not surprising that this book reads smoothly and easily.Murder in Palm Beach begins in January 1976 when the doorbell rings at the Palm Beach [...]

    3. Mitt Hecher was definitely not a model citizen and he did get into many different types of fights with people and even the police One thing he did not do is murder anyone Unfortunately, thanks to a corrupt judicial system and some prosecutors who are trying to make a name for themselves, it looks like they have convicted an innocent man Being sent to jail for minor charges would be acceptable but to be convicted and sentenced for murder when the witnesses are all people who are in jail with the [...]

    4. Bob Brink has written a book about Palm Beach but not the Palm Beach you see on tv, land of the Kennedys, glitz, yachts and glamour, ohhhh nooo The characters here are for the most part,hard core unrelenting bad asses The other part of Palm Beach perhaps Yep, there is a high profile murder The wrong man is found guilty He s not a saint by any means, but he is innocent of THIS crime and gets locked up anyway.Yearso many years, pass by while he greatly improves himself and life inside prison for f [...]

    5. Palm Beach is in the news quite a bit lately you know, the Mar a Lago version of Palm Beach Well, apparently, there is another side to this town, and it is the setting for Bob Brink s Murder in Palm Beach, a work of what is sometimes called faction It is a novel that is based on true events, in other words.In this story, Mitt Hecher is not a model citizen and he was known to battle other individuals and even the police He wasn t a murderer, but with a corrupt judicial system and some local prose [...]

    6. An interesting and captivating read, which is heavily steeped in high sexual content, drugs, violence and murder, a crime fill book mixed with a little political drama, that would peak the interest of readers that love these books The characters are really into their parts and the storyline is okay The violence content level is high so is the sexual content, which makes this a most interesting story indeed.

    7. I liked how the author mixed fact with fiction in this book The story is very well written, and you can almost imagine the way things were back in 1976 Did they actually did the correct guy for the murder or is the murderer still free Was it a killing for revenge Jealous boyfriend husband We may never know the answers, but this story is great to read

    9. Mitt Hecher owns his own karate studio and is known by the local law enforcement If there is a bar fight he is probably in the middle of it Hecher is well known to be hirable if you need someone beat up However, he meets the right woman, Diane Berglund, and tries turning his life around it is a little too late, though, and he gets charged with weapons, drugs, stolen property etc and gets sent to prison for 28 years.Rodger Kriger is a local, prominent citizen and owned some local restaurants.Krig [...]

    10. Murder in Palm Beach The Homicide That Never Diedby Bob BrinkReviewed by Jaime KurpThis book was different from what I normally read I honestly had a hard time reading part one of the story I felt that the author threw in so many characters all at once and it was a little hard for me to keep track of everyone In part one you really don t like the main character, Mitt Hecher He is a guy who fights, hustles people and has a bad record But by the end of part one you start to feel sorry for him He m [...]

    11. I can t believe how much I love this book From reading the back cover, I assumed it would be the same thing you see on tv and movies and I would be bored with it When I started reading though, I could not stop reading I spent many nights lying in bed reading, when I should have been sleeping The way Bob Brink writes is magical He has great knowledge of not only the legal system but also the prison system It translates well in this book Now on to the book Mitt Hetcher has done many things in his [...]

    15. The plot is well structured and there is always something going on, Murder in Palm Beach was all I could have hoped for in a travel read When I m flying I love to have something to keep me distracted and engrossed to take my mind of the fact that I m in the air This book definitely did the trick Never a dull moment or character and it was also informative in terms of the law, you can really tell that Brink knows his stuff and now I feel like I do in a sense too, so thank you I also enjoyed the p [...]

    16. I was really looking forward to this book based on the blurb Unfortunately, there was just too much of it for me What I mean by that is that the reader is given information than is needed to move the story along The writer obviously has a great deal of knowledge about the legal and penal systems, and uses that to make the story very realistic I would recommend this to mystery readers who enjoy tales full of procedure and details.I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review A [...]

    17. This book will have you on edge waiting to find out the end and who did what.A twisted story of how a wrongly convicted man will go through many hoops to get heard by anyone that will take his case and relook at it all Mitt is just your average everyday guy He may have had scraps with law But when a murder goes down in his area They searched far and wide supposedly, only to convict him With everything they compiled together it makes no sense at all and Mitt will not go down without a fight, even [...]

    18. so this was an interesting read Parts were a bit confusing but overall I really enjoyed it I went into it expecting to have rich preppy type people then realized very quickly that Bob wrote about the dives, bars, prostitutes, etc It was very well done and fast paced The writing was superb The hero was th eoposite of what you normally would think of a hero being and yet it was wonderful.

    20. A crime and punishment storyNot a bad read, though the contrived dialogue is distracting annoying who talks like that I was entertained.
