Superior Peril
by Michael Carrier

Murder on 123 (Getting to Know Jack)

[Jack Handler Series] is an intense thrill ride!! Michael Carrier's character Jack Handler is a retired Chicago detective who keeps finding himself suspenseful situations. … I seriously couldn't put this book down!!! Definitely a must read for those who enjoy David Baldacci, James Patterson and Michael Connelly. Being a Michigander, I loved that this book is based in the UP. When is the next Jack book coming out? —Mario What People are saying about the “Getting to Know Jack” series

Move over James Patterson and David Baldacci … Michael Carrier is the newest great suspense author!!!

Finally there is a new author who will challenge the likes of Michael Connelly and David Baldacci. In this latest mystery, Sugar Island (in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula) is used as a fitting backdrop to the wild action. It is a fast-paced thriller that you won’t want to put down until the final page. —Island Books

… Full of twists and turns. If you like James Patterson, you'll enjoy all of Michael Carrier's novels in the Getting to Know Jack series. These riveting thrillers will keep you turning pages all the way to the shocking end. —Cascade Writer's Group

A good read. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and kept coming back to it whenever I had the free time. The characters were really good. Connelly and Baldacci should approve—Dave

If you like James Patterson and Michael Connelly, you'll love Michael Carrier. Carrier has proven that he can hang with the best of them (seriously- we're talking Patterson and Connelly) with his newest book. It has all of the great, edge-of-your-seat action and suspense that you'd expect in a good thriller, and it kept me guessing to the very end. Fantastic read with an awesome detective duo—I couldn't put it down! Can't wait to read the next one! —by Katie

“I like to read Michael Connelly and James Patterson. When I saw Michael Carrier’s book suggested with my favorites authors, I decided to give him a read. … best decision. [This book] is not really like anything else I have ever read … much better” —Cheech

I really like James Patterson and David Baldacci. … I’m not going to say who’s [my favorite writer now], but it just might become this author. Highly recommended. —GGC

At first I thought the story jumped around a little too much. And then I remembered the great Russian writers, Tolstoy in particular. … Something like a Michael Connelly story. —Lindsay

At last there is a top-rated true murder mystery on the market without a lot of vulgarity. This is one action mystery you can recommend to anyone -- even your teenagers. The twists and turns keep you turning the pages long after you should move on to other things. With the short chapters, you can read a few, then put it down without losing your place, but you won’t want to. I believe this is the best murder mystery on the market. Hollywood should definitely look at this one! Congratulations to Michael Carrier on this next chapter in the Jack Handler series -- When’s the next one coming? –Bookaholic
