[Don't Look Twice] by Andrew Gross
Ty Hauck Series Book #2
4 Stars

From The Book:
A drive-by shooting rocks an affluent suburb, leaving an innocent man dead. A witness to the madness—along with his terrified teenaged daughter—Detective Ty Hauck launches an investigation into what looks like a vicious case of family retribution. But Annie Fletcher, the owner of a hip café who's attempting to rebuild her life, saw something that does not fit the bloody scenario. And the truth is a gathering storm of secrets and corruption that could tear through the mansions of the town's most powerful—ravaging a family . . . and pitting Hauck against his own brother.

My Thoughts:
I first read this author when he began co-writing books with James Patterson and thoroughly enjoyed his writing style and how easy he was to read and hold the readers interest with an easy to follow plot. This...his second book in the Hauck series... is no exception and if anything better than his co-written books.

The only "problem" that I had with the story was that it didn't seem that the "Why" was ever fully explained. I believe if the author had told us why things occurred as they did I could easily have given the book another star. In spite of that it was a fun book that should appeal to all mystery fans. I'll certainly continue this series. ( )

While there is nothing original about the story, it moves along at a good pace and is well written with central characters that I cared about. ( )

Somewhat disappointed by the series. Seems like the same story over and over. Was expecting more from the author. ( )

Andrew Gross obviously learned at the elbow of James Patterson. A lot of noise without much story. A new chapter every few paragraphs. The book is capable enough as a distraction but the audio version was hampered by incongruous choices. For example, Ty and his brother sound like they were raised not only in different households but in different neighborhoods. Some of the plot makes no sense, Ty is the most guileless lieutenant in the history of the force, and, what a surprise!, there's a giant conspiracy behind the whole thing. I suppose that's a spoiler but, in this genre, not much of one. ( )

Good story line but political stuff just is not my type of reading. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061143448, Hardcover)

In this dramatic new novel following the bestselling The Dark Tide, a drive-by shooting rocks the posh suburb of Greenwich, Connecticut, and an innocent bystander is left dead.

Detective Ty Hauck plunges into what seems like a vicious case of retribution and follows the trail to a sinister gambling scheme at an upstate casino. Until Annie Fletcher, a young restaurateur in the midst of rebuilding her life, witnesses something she shouldn't have—and immediately runs to him with what she knows. Suddenly, Hauck is pulled into a rising storm far greater than it first appeared—a storm wide enough to encompass corruption inside Greenwich's circle of wealthy and powerful citizens. And punishing enough to consume Hauck's own family, and tear brothers apart forever . . . if it doesn't kill them first.

Don't Look Twice is a gripping story of profiteering on an international scale and an emotionally resonant domestic thriller from one of the hottest new talents in suspense fiction.
