Another Excellent Mystery from a favorite author!

Clyde Phillips has been away for too long...but that has only served to sharpen his storytelling skills as evidenced in his latest thriller, "Sacrifice." Inspector-turned-Lieutenant Jane Candiotti returns in this snappy-paced thriller, and she's spunkier than ever! Married to fellow officer Kenny Marks, the duo make a riveting team. When billionaire philanthropist Phillip Iverson is murdered after pledging another generous financial gift to his own children's charity, it's up to Candiotti and Marks to put the pieces together. But how many pieces are there? Is the serial murders of local homeless men connected? How does the not-so-grieving billionaire widow fit into it all? With plenty of action, suspense, and enough red herrings to stock his own fish farm, Phillips delivers another ripping thriller to his eagerly-awaiting fans! Yay!

Another winner from Clyde Phillips

What could a wealthy philanthropist and a skid row bum possibly have in common? Nothing at all other than the fact that they were both killed within minutes of each other in the same area of San Francisco and it looks like the same person is responsible for both of their deaths.In Clyde Phillip's latest police thriller, "Sacrifice," he treats his readers to another heart-stopping adventure that will keep you planted to your seat until the very last page.Philip Iverson, San Francisco's favorite son, had just donated millions to his favorite cause and had quite a bit of cash and expensive jewelry on him when he was gunned down in a hotel parking garage. Yet he had not been robbed. Could it be that Iverson might not be the good guy that everyone thought he was, and what was in his past that could provoke someone to kill him?Willie Temple was a down and out drifter who showed up at big events to panhandle from the rich. He was stabbed to death on a Pier not far from where Iverson was murdered. But symbols and clues left at Temple's death spoke of a different scenario than that of Iverson's. What had Willie Temple seen that he shouldn't have?Lieutenant Jane Candiotti, head of the SFPD Homicide division and her team, which includes her new husband Inspector Kenny Marks and an enthusiastic but bumbling new detective Linda French, is called in to investigate the crimes. When other victims start piling up with eerily similar evidence, the mystery deepens. One mystifying clue keeps popping up over and over - the mark of an "S" drawn in the victims' blood appears at each murder. The police fear that there is a serial killer on the loose. It falls upon Jane and her team to pull together the pieces of the puzzle to uncover the plots behind the murders before someone else winds up sacrificed.Clyde Phillips is a master of storytelling. His years of experience as a television producer and writer serve him well in his role as a novelist. His dialogue is snappy and fast and his stories move with grace and speed. "Sacrifice" is the third in Phillips' "Jane Candiotti" novels (the first two are "Fall From Grace" and "Blindsided"), and they are all equally well-written, high-voltage tales that will leave you breathless and wanting more.Watch for more of Clyde Phillips' fast-paced, amazing writing skills as he takes the reins of head writer for the highly successful crime NBC crime series "Boomtown" this fall.As I have said before, "Clyde, write faster!" I can't wait for the next installment of the Jane Candiotti series.Sharon Galligar ChanceTIMES RECORD NEWS - Wichita Falls, Texas


This book is an incredible follow-up in the ever-compelling tale of the bay area's own Jane Candiotti!! Our favorite sleuth IS BACK and can't seem to pull herself away from the mystery and mayhem that surrounds San Francisco. Clyde Phillips does it again with this compelling page-turner where we find Jane embroiled deeper in murder and intrigue as well as her own personal battles. A MUST READ!!!

Couldn't put it down

It's unfortunately too rare to find a book you can't put down. You know the kind, where you find yourself picking it up at red lights just to get in half a paragraph. The kind where you stay up till 3:30 in the morning reading. That was Sacrifice for me. It sucked me in and wouldn't let me go. This is the first of the series I've read, but by page 25 I'd already ordered the prequels.

Up All Night!

I've been a fan of Clyde Phillips's books since Fall From Grace; and I was looking forward to Sacrifice. He didn't let me down. This book, the third in the series, was filled with all the ingredients that make a great thriller: terrific characters, imaginative plot twists, and stark, realistic dialogue. What I loved most? Lieutenant Jane Candiotti is more than just a detective character who only knows how to ask the right questions. She's a real woman struggling to find the right balance between marriage and career. Phillips explores this dynamic with humor, compassion, and skill as Jane and her husband, Inspector Kenny Marks, solve the double murder of a prominent philanthropist and a homeless bum. The ending's a great surprise. Actually, it scared the hell out of me.
