    Overall rating 3.5 stars Read Lukasz my full review over at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS Craig Schaefer s The Loot is his first official foray into the crime thriller genre I say official because technically in his debut series, Craig has definitely explored aspects of the genre in a multitude of ways However with The Loot the first in the Charlie McCabe series , he gets to fully explore his literary muscles in a different world that s perhaps nothing like he has done before.When Overall rating 3.5 stars Read Lukasz my full review over at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS Craig Schaefer s The Loot is his first official foray into the crime thriller genre I say official because technically in his debut series, Craig has definitely explored aspects of the genre in a multitude of ways However with The Loot the first in the Charlie McCabe series , he gets to fully explore his literary muscles in a different world that s perhaps nothing like he has done before.When the story opens, we meet Charlene Charlie McCabe as she returns back to her New England roots from her military tour She s an explosive devices expert who has managed to stay whole physically psychologically it s a whole different matter Arriving back, she s confronted with a father whom she s not on good term...

    Craig Schaefer s newer branchout into a non fantasy world is a solid and yet derivative work that is a quick read yet doing nothing for the genre His Daniel Faust series had the undertones of crime and this crime novel harkens back to that A strong female lead, back from war trying to find her place in the world is a good set up and Schaefer works on that element well But the central mystery plot in itself did nothing for me and it kind of seemed to be by the numbers I think I will stick to Craig Schaefer s newer branchout into a non fantasy world is a solid and yet derivative work that is a quick read yet doing nothing for the genre His Daniel Faust series had the undertones of crime and this crime novel harkens back to that A strong female lead, back from war trying to find her place in the world is a good set up and Schaefer works on that element well But the central mystery plot ...
