    1. Wise Bear Media Reviews San Francisco Secrets by Greg Messel 5 Paws San Francisco Secrets is the third book in The Sam Slater Mystery Series which, for all intents and purposes, is a highly stylized crime drama in the spirit of a classic Hollywood film noir esque movie Yes, it s a novel, but Messel s writing will transport you back in time to the late 50s for another adventure with Sam Slater and his sometimes partner, but also new finance, Amelia Ryan.This novel picks up right where Deadly Plun [...]

    4. This was a First Read book I won through.I said in my review of the first book in this series, Last Of The Seals, that it was a good story ruined by bad writing But I also expressed hope that Messel s writing would improve Sadly, in this third novel in the series, it doesn t He commits the same errors here that he did in that one, bringing what could be another great story to its knees with bad writing The novel again opens a long introduction, this time recapping events in the first two books e [...]

Greg Messel in his new book, San Francisco Secrets Book Three in the Sam Slater Mysteries series published by the author gives us another adventure with Sam Slater and Amelia Ryan.From the back cover Noted novelist and newspaper editor Edgar Watson Howe once said A man who can keep a secret may be wise but he is not half as wise as a man with no secrets to keep As the spring of 1958 arrives in San Francisco, it seems that baseball player turned private eye, Sam Slater and his fianc e, TWA stewar [...]

    7. Once again, this author has given us a great story I was immediately swept into both cases that Sam gets involved with I was able to read the book fairly quickly This time around, Sam gets a visit from an old flame and ends up having to help her with a case He also gets involved in a black mail case that puts him and Amelia in some sticky situations Let s just say, I d be checking my brake lines before attempting any of those steep San Francisco hills Speaking of San Francisco the author has onc [...]

    9. Greg Messel pens San Francisco Secrets , the third book in the Same Slater Mysteries Series and the first one that I have read from this author, in a plot filled with mystery Combining real historical facts with fictional characters that were strong, the author made the story line believable This book was good enough to stand alone from the series, as I didn t feel I was missing all that much from the first two booksough I wished I had read the series from the beginning A must read for all myste [...]


    10. Greg Messel s San Francisco Secrets has great characters and a great setting in 1958 San Francisco Messel does a good job evoking that time and place A good editor would have helped Messel avoid too much unnecessary repetition that slowed the story down.I received this book through First Reads.


    11. Not the deepest story but really enjoyed the characters plus it showed a time of San Francisco never seen that much in fiction.
