    1. Love Ridley Pearson This is my first Walt Fleming and I hope he s as good as Lou Boldt.This was a very fast paced book with loads of action Couldn t put it down Lee Child said, If we had a Thriller Hall of Fame, Ridley Pearson would be a first ballot certainty I most certainly agree I gave it 5 stars.


    2. OK was OK I thought a few loose ends were left untied but when I listen to books, sometimes I m distracted so it may have been me.But my first Ridley Pearson and I would easily grab another book of his to read.


    3. I m enjoying my alphabetical tour of the US, and meeting a lot of new to me authors The project should take me well into next year at least, since I just finished the Idaho book, Ridley Pearson s KILLER WEEKEND.This excellent thriller, set in the Sun Valley Ketchum Hailey area, has some plot and structural elements in common with THE DAY OF THE JACKAL, but it is in no way derivative A good author can make a fine new book out of an old plot, and that s what Pearson has done here.Sheriff Walt Flem [...]


    4. I would likely go 3.5 stars if would ever make half stars part of the rating system for a accurate reflection.Walt Flemming brings a new lead character and a fresh touch for Pearson fans I would say that I did not find it quite as enjoyable as the Lou Boldt Daphane Matthews series, but then again there are only a handful of series that I feel are on par with Boldt.I would say the negatives are outweighed by the positives in this book I don t feel that I know Walt Flemming at all after reading t [...]


    5. Ridley Pearson seems to be a hit or miss writer in my opinion, but Killer Weekend is a winner I really like the Sun Valley setting with its celebrity surface and its dark underside I read this novel at the right time, as it features a female presidential candidate before Mrs Clinton declared her intentions Walt Fleming, a divorced, self doubting lawman with a domineering father, is a great protagonist who makes the assorted government weenies look sad The conclusion is both exciting and satisfyi [...]


    6. SETTING Sun Valley, IdahoSERIES Standalone thrillerRATING 3.5Attorney General Liz Shaler of New York is planning to announce that she will be a candidate for the presidency The event is a media conference being held in Sun Valley, Idaho, and hosted by Patrick Cutter, a billionaire businessman The security for Shaler s visit to the area is extremely tight, with federal and local law enforcement officials and private contractors working together to protect the would be candidate Several years earl [...]


    7.

    8. We d had Pearson on our authors to try list for some time, and noting that there are now nearly a half dozen in his Sheriff Walt Fleming set, settled on Weekend , his first entry in that series To our dismay, we found a poorly crafted, late Patterson esque mediocre mystery thriller that did little to excite or entertain.The gist of the plot was that a female Attorney General has decided to run for President and picks a big communications industry conference a strange choice to make her announcem [...]


    9. This was enjoyableter awhile The first nine chapters were hopscotching all over the place I wasn t quite sure what was happening Now I m curious as to what happens between Walt and Fiona because I feel as though I ve read one of the Walt Fleming stories that are further on down the line And I want to know if what I m thinkin is accurateWalt is the local sheriff in contemporary Sun Valley, Idaho with a lot of issues going on in his personal life but doesn t allow them to bleed over into his profe [...]


    10. Crisp, crackling intrigue involving Liz Shaler, New York Attorney General Liz plans to announce her candidacy for President as the keynote speaker at a media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho where she has a second home Sheriff Walt Fleming of Sun Valley saved Liz from a killer eight years ago when he was a patrolman The conference is sponsored by a powerful tycoon and will attract the rich and famous Add to it the possible presidential announcement, and Walt s job just became a security nightmare [...]


    11. Looking for a book for that summer weekend on the beach Killer Weekend might just fit the bill Sheriff Walt Fleming is determined to get to the bottom of death threats against NY state attorney general Liz Shaler, who is the keynote speaker at a conference in Sun Valley As he searches for the would be killer, Walt must cope with cougar attacks, multiple security forces with the same goal in mind, and the infidelities of his own wife There s nothing particularly new here, but this is a story unde [...]


    12. Hey another county sheriff named WaltWalt Fleming isn t quite as humorous as Longmire, but Pearson is an excellent writer putting the many twists turns needed to draw the mystery fans into the booksis is the 1st of the Walt Fleming series of Walt, working in and around the Sun alley resort area stopping a hired killer from offing a potential presidential candidate whom Walt has had previous contact withLiked the setting and look forward to the others in the series


    13. Ridley Pearson knows how to write This book is evidence of that This apparently is the first Walt Fleming book and it is a good read.J Robert Ewbank author John Wesley, Natural Man, and the Isms


    14. Walt Fleming number one Solid thriller from Pearson as expected Written in 2007, I kept thinking I ve read this one before regardless enjoyed this time around anyway Fleming number two is on my nightstand and up soon.


    15. We are introduced to Walt Fleming, the sheriff of Blaine County, Idaho Sun Valley The Attorney General of New York is visiting and he gets word there is an assassin who has made her his target.




    16. My first book by Ridley Pearson The writing pales in comparison to good authors like John Connolly, Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, John Burdett, F Paul Wilson, Lee Child and others The author indulges himself with too many references to hollywood celebs perhaps his real life earlier generation neighbors who have ties to the setting but not the plot for this story I was too often ahead of the lead investigator Sheriff Walt in figuring out what was going to happen next Relationships between chara [...]


    17. So glad I found this writer Killer Weekend was fast paced toward the end but interesting throughout.Liked the Sheriff right away and he had several other admirers also The star of the story, Shaler who was to announce her candidacy for president this weekend, had a strong connection to Sheriff Walt The professional photographer and it seemed like everyone in SunValley liked him He had he own connections with his ex wife being with her main man in the Sheriff s department Quite a complicated stor [...]


    18. Sun Valley, Idaho sheriff Walt Fleming is helping protect Elizabeth Shaler ahead of her announcement that she is running for president at the G3 conference Walt saved her life 8 years ago There is an assassin after Shaler and we learn his identity early in the book with several chapters from his point of view This book worked fine as a thriller but there really is no depth to any of the characters which is odd since this is the first book in a series There was also a lot of animal mistreatment i [...]


    19. I read books 2 and 3 in this series and liked them enough to come back and give the first one a try This was a quick, action packed mystery thriller that was certainly enjoyable to read Walt is a great character and Ridley Pearson always does a good job with realistic mystery and action For some reason though I didn t like this one quite as much as numbers 2 and 3, maybe because in this first one Walt needs a little rounding out.


    20. Exciting, suspenseful, and never a dull moment Ridley Pearson has created yet interesting characters and a fast paced plot What sets this book above some other crime novels are the unique ways one person is murdered and the method chosen by a hired killer to attempt to kill another.


    21. My first Pearson and I will read Fast paced and lots of action, even if there were few real surprises The only thing I didn t like much was the fact that that it took place in such a short period of time, that seemed to make character development spotty.


    22. A great, classic mystery novel While not as imaginative as Pearson s fanciful characters he does do a very good job of relaying the grit of your standard detective while offering a mystery that is than just run of the mill Enjoyable.



    23. Hard to put downI would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good murder mystery A real whodunit You should read this book Walt is a likable character.


    24. Action packed book protecting a future candidate who is the target of people that want her dead The local sheriff rides to the rescue.




    25. Ridley Pearson is a well known author who I ve never read I decided to pick up Killer Weekend, my first book by Mr Pearson It will also be my last book by Mr Pearson.If a book is well written with characters I like and can relate to but only a so so plot, I will read the book On the other hand, if the book has a GREAT premse but features poor writing and bland characters, I will not finish it Killer Weekend had neither The plot The current Atty General of the US is in Sun Valley, ID to announce [...]
