No Escape

The Marquette Mysteries Book 3

Private eye Kenny Marquette intervened when he saw two teenage girls being abducted on a busy Queens sidewalk, but it wasn’t enough to save the girls from being taken or prevent a uniformed police officer from being killed. As a key witness, Marquette joined forces with Detective Brenda Farrell and other Major Case Squad sleuths who followed every lead and considered everyone a suspect while they tracked down the men who held the teens captive and threatened to kill a Queens Supreme Court judge’s granddaughter if a favorable verdict wasn’t handed down or the charges dismissed against the gang leader’s brother.

No Escape is the third installment in the Marquette Mysteries. It can, however, be read as a standalone. The fascinating thing about this story is its multiple perspectives. Every character gets to tell their side, even the kidnappers.

I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. No Escape, by Donald Steven Collins, is a fast-paced crime story that took me for a rollercoaster ride into the criminal world. The plot is complex, captivating and exciting – a real nail-biting experience for me. The suspense kept me on edge until the end. The characters were well-developed and robust. The story is exceptionally well written. I gave it a five star rating.
