New Discovery

I've just discovered John Becker and David Wiltse (where have I been?)and what a fortuitous discovery it is! If John Becker is not the most fascinating, complicated, sexy, clever, dangerous--and most interestingly of all--oddly virtuous character in this whole genre, I don't know of any other contenders that even come close. His villains may be be even better. Evil enough even for Dubya's list, but tantalizingly human as well. Most exciting of all for me as a reader is the author's command of the language. The words, the words! This is a genuine writer, not just a potboiler. If Blown Away is any example, I'm going to have a wonderful time with the rest of Mr. Wiltse's work.

Blown Away

I read this astounding book by chance only last week, with the horrors of 9/11 still haunting us all. Wiltse seemed to be looking into the future with this plot that reveals how terribly vulnerable to attack New York, or any city in the country really is. There seem to be enough characters to populate a city, and what an interesting city that would be for he draws them quickly, deeply, and with a reality that is often funny at the same time it frightens.

please, does anybody know if another wiltse is due?

see above==i keep looking for wiltse books to no avail

Becker lives on (for one more book).

Having hung tenaciously to every word ever written about John Becker, I devoured this newest offering. It did not disappoint me. Wiltse continues to develop Becker's character, embellishing on his established traits, and revealing further insights into the complexities of Becker's psyche. The end is left unresolved, begging for another book which Wiltse's publisher has declined to option. Time to write Putnam

Becker is the Best

Just when I thought David Wiltse could not write a better book, I got "Blown Away". You have all of the edge of the first Becker books with the added humor of bit players. He has you chewing your nails one moment and laughing out loud in the next. Wiltse has perfected the serial killer books and John Becker is the most intriguing characther I've read. With his wife slowly recovering from injuries and coming upon an unknown 'type' of killer, Becker could not rely on the instincts that has guided him in the past books. I cannot recommend David Wiltse enough. He is the best kept secret in fiction. If you haven't tried any of his books, take some time off work and read all of the Becker series.
