Just in case you haven’t opened your email today, I am re-posting the very first book review for my new mystery novel, A RUN FOR THE MONEY. (Just in time to coincide with the Preakness, which was won by a horse that was named after a fiction writer….. Exaggerator!) Incidentally, this was also my nickname for several years after my honeymoon. (Don’t ask.)
All right, here we go…..

Stephen G. Yanoff, dubbed “the king of the clever mystery” by the NYT, has done it again. His new book, A Run For The Money is a spellbinding novel sure to please. In this fascinating tale, the theft of a priceless Civil War artifact drags insurance investigator, Adam Gold, into the dark and dangerous world of brazen grave robbers. While pursuing the robbers, Gold encounters a scheming Southern belle with a dark family secret, and becomes entangled in the Gullah culture of South Carolina. A riveting pursuit will lead to a showdown with a vicious psychopath who specializes in the murder of Thoroughbred horses — and a memorable climax that readers will never forget.
A RUN FOR THE MONEY is now available on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, Kindle, Nook, and leading bookstores across the country.
RATING: Five Stars. ***** (Excellent)
Before you ask, the answer is NO, my mother did not write this review, nor does she own any stock in Renegade Reviews. (She did, however, buy the first 500 copies of A Run For The Money.) She bought 500 copies only because she’s 90 years old and forgets where she leaves things. This way, there’s a book in every room and closet in the house. Such a smart woman.
Now the rest of you rascals don’t have to buy 500 copies. (although they do make great Christmas gifts) One or two books will be sufficient. (unless you have some friends.) If you do purchase a book, please do me a BIG favor and leave a nice review on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, or Goodreads.com. (The good reviews help the old advertising budget.)
I do hope you enjoy the book, and keep in mind that most of it is based upon an actual insurance claim. And let me know what you think about the cover and the contents. Your opinions really matter!
Have a safe and happy week. Love to all,
I posted the comments above for ‘A Run For the Money’; I may have positioned it in the wrong place.
I posted the following comments on Amazon today:
Yanoff has an incredible knack for producing entertaining and exciting fiction while throwing in unbelievable historical, geographical, and environmental facts that totally hold the reader and make one feel as though they are actually present and ‘on location’. His descriptions are excellent; he describes a sandwich I never heard of that I could actually taste from the reading. The plot and twists in this novel kept me turning the pages until I was finished reading the book. Had History and Geography been presented in the manner they are in Yanoff’s books when I was in school, I would have done much better and been much more interested in these subjects. I highly recommend this book both for the exciting fiction and the substantial education.
