Review quote

"Author Richard Zappa is both a first-rate writer and storyteller. His plot is intricate and involving, yet easy to follow. His action sequences, of which there are many, resonate with cinematic intensity. He creates characters whose motives and behaviors are not just dramatic but credible as well. Zappa uses dialogue as it should be used, with spice and bite. He increases reader involvement by making his protagonists face moral as well as physical challenges. And he does it all while keeping the pace of his story roaring ahead."

- Jake Bishop, Pacific Book Reviews.

"Opening with a pleasingly brutal home invasion/ robbery/ execution that comes with a neat twist in its closing paragraph which immediately wrong-foots the reader, Double Indemnity is an extremely well written contemporary thriller. Blending maverick cops, hardboiled killers and rogue businessmen, author Richard Zappa has created an engrossing and entirely believable crime novel that continues the story of New Orleans homicide detective Jo Crowder." - IndieReader Reviews

"Double Indemnity by Richard Zappa is a chilling crime thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair from start to finish. The subplots are nested like Russian dolls, with red herrings and false trails a-plenty, and an eminently satisfying conclusion. A thrilling roller coaster ride of greed, deceit, and murder; a book that you can't put down. I give it five stars without hesitation." - Charles Ray, author.

"Zappa's novel is remarkably eventful, featuring lots of murder, intrigue, and criminal schemes as well as sexual attraction between the two main heroes. The plot is briskly paced, as well, and the author never skimps on action." -Kirkus Reviews
