Reviews: DEEP SIX, Jake Longly #1

We all know Lyle’s erudition and expertise - but who knew he was this funny?—-Lee Child, NY Times Best Selling Author

Corruption, vendettas, cartel killers, oh my! Deep Six puts the fun back into late-night reading with this fast-paced romp through murder and mayhem. Prepare to flip the pages.—-Lisa Gardner, NY Times Best-selling Author

I hate D.P. Lyle. He’s already the smartest, most generous, hardest-working son of a bitch I know. Now, with Deep Six, he’s also one of the finest writers. His wistfully dogged, romance-challenged, wisecracking hero Jake Longly calls to mind James Crumley’s C.W. Sughrue, and I can’t think of higher praise. The story is paced like a lightning strike aimed directly at the human heart. How the hell does he do that? Read this smart, wickedly funny, extraordinary book. Then you can hate the author as much as I do.—-David Corbett, Bestselling Author

D.P. Lyle returns in superb form in Deep Six. Smart, wickedly funny, expertly constructed and deftly executed, Lyle is at the top of his game as he takes his readers on a romp on the Gulf Coast that goes down as smoothly as a cold beer on a hot day at a bar next to the beach. Jake Longly is a character worth rooting for, and Lyle's fans will be cheering for an encore. Find a comfortable chair and plan to stay up late to enjoy the ride. Highly recommended.—-Sheldon Siegel. NY Times Best Selling Author of the Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez novels.

In Deep Six, gifted storyteller D.P. Lyle has crafted yet another winner. A comedic thriller that weaves through the Gulf Coast with wild abandon. This book has it all, memorable characters, a stunning plot, and as always, Lyle's impeccable sense of place. Bravo!”—-Philip Donlay, best-selling author of the Donovan Nash series

Readers will love Jake Longley – ex-big league ballplayer, beach bar owner and reluctant PI, and the sharply defined ensemble of characters in Deep Six is just as outstanding. Page-turning action and knock-out dialogue from a master craftsman and storyteller. I devoured this one!—-Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon and New York Times Best Selling Author of My Sister’s Grave

D P Lyle’s latest thriller, DEEP SIX, is the first in a new series and already I’m looking forward to the next installment. Set in Florida’s sultry west coast and peppered with quirky yet expertly-drawn characters, DEEP SIX is a fast-paced thrill ride that’s laugh-out-loud funny interspersed with white-knuckle suspense. Readers of Nelson DeMille’s John Corey series will love Jake Longley. D P Lyle’s latest, DEEP SIX, has it all: white-knuckle suspense, humor, and a wise-cracking hero that makes for a fun and thoroughly entertaining read.—-Linda Castillo best-selling author of the Kate Burkholder series

A true page-turner, smart and stylish, with crisp prose and a cast of colorful characters who show both humor and grit. Twists and turns a plenty, Deep Six is a terrific read!—-Daniel Palmer, author of Delirious, Helpless, Stolen, and Desperate

Kudos to D.P. Lyle for the fastball pitch of a new series. Jake Longly, retired Major Leaguer and reluctant P.I., is a new voice in the thriller scene. With sharp dialogue and remarkable characters, Deep Six is something Elmore would be proud of.—-Terri Nolan, author of the award-nominated Birdie Keane series.

Mix Pulp Fiction with a great mystery, add a dash of humor, stir lightly and you’ll have a perfect combination that is “DEEP SIX.”—Suspense Magazine

D. P. Lyle never ceases to amaze with his ever-expanding range of genres. DEEP SIX is a delightful combo of quirky characters, dizzying plot twists, and some of the juiciest dialog I've ever read. Pick up a copy and lighten up your day. Then look forward to the movie version that is bound to follow.—-Vladimir Lange, author FATAL MEMORIES

Lyle debuts a new series starring Jake Longly, former baseball player, now reluctant PI working for his father. Assigned to watch a wealthy woman believed to be having an affair, he quickly learns that her paramour is Jake’s own ex-wife’s new husband. Then the woman is murdered, and Jake, who has a mouth that speaks before his brain has time to think, finds himself in deep trouble. Readers who enjoy smart-mouthed PIs like Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole will want to watch this series develop.—-Booklist

Fans of D.P. Lyle’s darker, more noirish work may suddenly feel like they’re on the butt end of a badly written punchline, but Lyle’s new book is no laughing matter. Actually, that’s a lie. It’s funny as hell.—-The Big Thrill

In DEEP SIX author D. P. Lyle has once again written a consistently compelling novel that will rivet his reader's total attention from beginning to end. This is the stuff from which block-buster movies are made!—-Midwest Book Review

You’ll be itching to read it—-Reading Frenzy

DEEP SIX is an incredible thriller that has a "smashing" start and will hold you captivated to the end. DEEP SIX is one compelling adventure and crime thriller you do not want to miss!
