    One thought on “Deadly Eyes”

    1. The Caribbean is a popular setting for many fiction writers. The beautiful weather and scenery, and colorful language and culture provide an exotic backdrop for many fictional plots. Only some authors, however, go beyond scratching the surface to delve deeper into the Caribbean that visitors sometimes do not see-the islands scarred by poverty and economic despair, and the skepticism and sometimes even resentment that is often harbored by local people towards tourists but that is carefully masked [...]

    2. Mike Meyer's Deadly Eyes offers something for everyone in this murder mystery, a fluid tale of deception and intrigue which provoked emotion and surprises, holding my attention throughout. The book attracted me because it offered alternate endings, and I thought of the many times I'd read books and wished for that very thing. Meyer did not disappoint, and I devoured this book. (The first ending worked best for me) The setting was in the Virgin Island of St Croix, a place to 'live, party, dance a [...]

    5. I love a good murder mystery with action and a who-dunnit plot so this book was a perfect fit for me.With Rosie and Cuff both fluffed out so that the reader could identify with them and a plot that moved at a nice and fast pace this was a book I thoroughly enjoyed. The story is set on an exotic island and the author did a wonderful job in taking the reader to this exotic paradise. But like most stories in paradise this one has a snake. The nature and form of the snake should have been apparent t [...]

    7. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review.And I'm so glad I was. This is another of those books that I really loved getting the opportunity to read. The locations were described well and the details given bit by bit to build the picture and suspense up and I struggled to put the book down.I've already recommended it to some friends and family who like the genre and I read both of the endings.I think I prefered the first one as it was happier but it was a really interesting twist t [...]

    9. I read this book a week prior to this review. It was claimed to be a suspense/thriller and I can say that the novel proved to be in the correct genre. Some books were classified incorrectly – a romance drama which will later proved to be horror, or a murder series which turned to be drama instead. Anyway, I am glad to have read something different from the ones I have finished these past few months. When I saw my list, I have seen that I haven’t read a thing similar to this one so my expect [...]

    10. This was an interesting read: creating great imagery and beauty in the natural world then whacking you in the gut with some horrible event, keeping the reader off balance. The juxtaposition of the beauty and friendliness of island life against dangers from nature and man are so well intertwined that you just start to relax when you are reminded, not always kindly, that caution and awareness of your surroundings is necessary. The main character, Cuff, was perfectly depicted if difficult to engage [...]

He's hired within the first few pages to listen to a proposition and go to a house in his employer's stead, if he takes on the gig. Of course, he's just the kind of person to do it--especially when his employer also hands him a gun. I suppose curiosity led him on to take that assignment--why not? He had nothing else to do, really. Then shit hits the fan and everything unfolds in a fast pace.Unlike other books in th [...]

    16. I had a lot of fun reading Mike Meyer’s Deadly Eyes. What I enjoyed most was the perceived tongue-in-cheek tone and the light, subtle humor which made for a very pleasant read. Build as a thriller, the book follows a fast pace and moves nicely toward an agreeable end. I am one of the readers that chose not to read the dark end as I felt satisfied with the "regular" one. What amused me most (maybe more than the thrill of the action itself) was the fact that Cuff is an English teacher (hint, hin [...]

    17. I actually downloaded this book a while ago but laid it aside after first starting to read it. I felt that the beginning was rather weak and the bit with the gun seemed just too predictable. I finally came back to it when searching for something to read during a period of convalescence and was glad that I did!Deadly Eyes is a fairly fast paced thriller/mystery once you get into it. It will definitely keep you guessing. I absolutely adored Cuff and found myself feeling sorry for him. The story is [...]

    19. Deadly Eyes Michael Meyer I haven’t read a murder mystery in years, but this book will definitely change that going forward. Right from the start, I was intrigued with aspects of the story yet to come to light, and just had to keep reading to see how it was all going to fit in together. There are so many twists and turns, no one is likely to see the end coming and the descriptions in the book were so vivid, it was easy to imagine the whole story. The two alternative endings were a great additi [...]

    21. I'll admit I like Cuff. He's a rather caustic individual with a touch of subtle humor throughout this suspense story. It just happens to take place where I'd love to retire, in Christiansted, St Croix. It's quite the convoluted plot that's orchestrated by someone who's very vindictive. She's kind of disturbing to tell you the truth. It begs the question, does the past really stay in the past? Possibly not. I don't want to give too much away. You'll have to read the book yourself but I found it t [...]

    22. I got this book for review and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Deadly Eyes has a lot of mystery, many blind turns and some humor. This book is definitely unique with two set of endings. This definitely attracts the reader in the first place. The book is fast paced and keeps you guessing. But at times I kept losing it. I had to keep my attention on it all the time. A little difficult for me but at the same time very fascinating. Over all it’s a good read.

    23. This book is a fast paced thriller. I was surprised as to who the murder really was.I loved the book up until the end. The end seemed rushed. There was a part that was not really explained well. I'm surprised one person could do so much damage. The story moves very quickly and sucks you in. You start to feel bad for Cuff very early on.I read this book in 2 days.

    24. Deadly Eyes is a thoroughly enjoyable thriller. It has plenty of action, more than a little humor, a cast of one-of-a-kind characters, an exotic setting, an ingenious plot with whiplash twists and turns and TWO endings. I highly recommend you read both endings. The second isn’t to be missed.

    27. Mysteries are something I generally enjoy, and much of this book was rather intriguing. The story took many twists and turns, and the characters are rather engaging. And the setting is an ideal location that captures the imagination.I especially enjoyed the recurring phrase that dealt with the deadly eyes of St. Croix, It reminded me of the Raven's "nevermore" line which gave it a rather ominous feeling. Just about the time you thought you knew what was going on, you discover that you are wrong. [...]
