Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good book and a good continuation, but...   Mar 17, 2007
... it leaves you wanting # 4 in the series. To me, it was good, but not quite as good as the second one. I mean, close, but it was missing one part that has kept me very interested in the series. The characters personal life. Ever since the start of the series, Dodson has served up both Parker's professional and private life. Root of All Evil didn't touch as much on the personal side as the others. It may have set up some future developments, but the story itself didn't really develop it much, and that leaves me really depending on number 4.

All the same, it's a great series and refreshing reading among the usual big-shots of inspirational fiction. Way to go Brandt Dodson.
Gumshoes....hmmmm......I never knew!!!  Mar 13, 2007
I love Colton Parker. He's my favorite gumshoe. I didn't really know gumshoes before I met Colton, but he's intrigued me with his reality. Colton's reality, if looked at through the world's spectacles, is grim and gritty and maybe a little lonely. If looked at through the spectacles of faith, his world holds answers to secrets and love from his daughter and even his food 'friend'. But, Colton doesn't have the answer to the ulitmate secret yet, although he is trying.

In Root, Colton ia enlisted to find the possible son of dying multi-millionaire Berger Hume. Seems simple enough, for a plot that is, but author Dodson layers in faith, deciet, intrigue and lust, carefully leading the reading on a path of discovery where at times we don't want to go. Yet, we are never dissatisifed.

[...]You know something is great when you're doing your sit time between dives in Belize and a fictional character is on your mind!!!!
Intriguing suspense set in Indianapolis  Feb 26, 2007
The plot to this PI mystery is filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing and wondering if Colton will be able to protect his charge and his child while unraveling who's behind the threat to one of the areas richest families. I liked how this book was not predictable and took the plot places I'd hoped it wouldn't go. The book had the hard-edged feel of a PI novel without diving into language to convey the coarseness of the characters.

The characters - even the antagonists - had facets that made them human. Dodson didn't fall into the trap of making the characters cardboard props to the plot. And I wasn't expecting the son of an extremely wealthy man to be so far removed from his father's world. Yet he still had that hole in his life that made him long to know if his father could love him.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and it is not the last book of Dodson's I will read.
4 1/2 Stars...Further Proof  Feb 23, 2007
Once again, Brandt Dodson serves up a mystery in the grand tradition. "The Root of All Evil" reunites readers with Colton Parker, the fearless man of few words, the former FBI agent turned private eye. This time, Parker is hired to track down a possible heir to a fortune. There are others who have much to gain--and lose--in this scenario. Blackmail, corruption, and biker gangs converge in this tense story, and Parker is just the man to unravel the threads of deceit.

Like Raymond Chandler, Dodson has a way of writing tight dialogue that seems masculine and deceptively emotionless, while in actuality he is painting the undersides of his story with a true sense of humanity and pathos. Although I found myself more caught up in the personal drama of his last book, "Seventy Times Seven," this third installment is further proof that Dodson deserves to be around for a long time.

If you haven't yet discovered the world of Colton Parker, it's time to do so. Start here. Or go back to "Original Sin" and follow Parker's story in chronological order. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
Dodson's Best!  Feb 17, 2007
Dodson just keeps getting better. This one has everything a classic hard-boiled PI mystery should: murderous biker gangs, corrupt politicians, and the wealthy who'll stop at nothing to get even wealthier. The ongoing saga of Colton Parker's struggle to raise his teenage daughter, his resitance of faith, and the agonizingly slow-to-kindle romantic spark with his former FBI partner add great depth to his character. Of course, it also keeps us wanting more. I highly recommend this series to any mystery fan.
