Really enjoyed this book. I am a fan of this series and have now read all of the kindle books in this series. If you enjoy mystery crime thrillers you should enjoy reading this author's books. I read the last 2 out of chronological order by mistake but it did not diminish my enjoyment. His characters are relatable and his plots are unique but believable and he keeps your interest going throughout the book.

These stellar reviews are way, way misleading and they must be written by relatives and loved ones of the author.

I fond this totally, 100% predictable. The ending was given away after about a third of the book. If this kept you in suspense; you must be a novice mystery buff.

This author will be avoided in the future. VERY disappointing.

I first read my first book by Martin J Smith earlier this year & couldn't put it down. The Straw Men was exactly the same, I challenge you to work out the true killer early, if you can you should be a detective. As you begin to understand all the characters your mind will jump from so many of them wondering who could really do the this dastardly deed & why. Don't hesitate buy it now & start your detective work.

Took a little bit to get into the story but well worth it. Thought I had it figured out but in reality more twists and turns than I anticipated. Great read and as always with this author loved the Pittsburgh area references

i was amazed at the skill of this author. he builds a tale that captures your attention completely. the characters jump out of the pages to you. this is a complex tale that is totally coherent. so glad i discovered this writer.

I liked the first book in the memory series, "Time Release," a lot, and the second, "Shadow Image," a bit less(though it's still easily better than 90 percent of the mysteries published). In "Straw Men" the author returns to the exquisitely intricate plotting and tormented, morally ambiguous characters that made the first book so great. There's a nice plot twist reminiscent of "L.A. Confidential" (the movie version, not the book), and a subtle but ever-present erotic tension simmering beneath the surface of the story. Jim Christensen is one of the few protagonists in mystery genre who really comes off as an authentic ordinary person. Smart, but not too smart, and far from masterful. He's a genuine soccer dad with coffee stains on his tie who struggles to cope with with the perplexing mysteries of everyday life, as well as the occasional crime.
Martin Smith's 'Memory Series' continues...and his novels just seem to get better with every new title. Great suspense, several memorable red-herrings--but, mostly, his characters seem much more three-dimensional than most thriller types these days. A great read--with much to ponder after you put down the book.
