From a reader:
All of us with kindles watch for the bargains - admit it. I got this book because it was a bargain and had good reviews. It was simply put, terrific. The mystery was excellent from the get-go and the main character, Thomas Prescott, is very funny: "I'm not into politics. The last time I voted was for Carrie Underwood."
In the opening scene, Prescott is in Maine suffering from depression on Thanksgiving. He hops a plane to his home town of Seattle and almost immediately finds a dead body adrift on the shore outside his boyhood home. Even though he is an ex-cop and retired consultant to the FBI, he can't keep his hands out of the investigation. The investigation leads him to different suspects, investigators, supporting cast members and locales.
The book has the very good mystery, the excellent main character, very good supporting characters (no matter how minor, none are cutouts) and there is the added element of a bit of science thrown into the mix. To divulge it would be a small spoiler, so I won't, but I always like to learn a bit of something while being thoroughly entertained.
Halfway through the book I ordered Mr. Pirog's other two books. I then thought: "Uh oh, what if the ending isn't any good?" After the ending, I was even happier I will have two more of Mr. Pirog's books to look forward to reading. --Richard A. Mitchell
Book Description:
His love life in shambles, Thomas Prescott returns to Seattle, the very place he fled from after his parents' deaths nearly a decade earlier. Just as Thomas is getting settled in, he sees a body floating in the private cove behind his boyhood home. It is a woman. But not just any woman. The governor of Washington.
As the suspense ratchets, and the twists unfold, Thomas is thrown into the middle of the biggest murder investigation in Washington state history. Prescott is forced to confront the demons from his past and unearths a new enemy, one that couldn't possibly be human, one that has haunted man since the dawn of time...
More reviews:
Pirog engages readers with a tight plot, well-developed characters, historical context, and just enough pop culture to keep you begging for more. Thomas Prescott is witty, arrogant -yet generous, and operates on just enough id to make him adorable. He is my favorite naughty character by far! Every page begs to be turned, every chapter begs to be completed, and the end leaves you begging for the next book! --Tami
I read approximately 8-10 books a month and have for years so that should give an idea of how impressed I am with his author. I am writing this review because this author DESERVES to be read. Refreshingly funny, quirky and still produces a many layered well thought out mystery thriller. "Gray Matter" adds even more than just chuckles and a thought provoking who done it, this story even went as far as to throw in tears. I was mesmerized from the first page by not only the main plot but by the sub plot as well, the ending left me surprised and with tears in my eyes. WOW! --Tif Saucer


  • Gray Matter is a Must read!!

    I have given a 5 star rating before but this book should be a 5+. This is my first Nick Pirog novel but will certainly not be the last. Imagine successfully incorporating a story in a story but unexpected outcomes X 2. Looking forward to my next book.

    I thought the story line was well written, kept me reading, & love the humor! However, I can’t abide the F- bombs... Why are low class words necessary.. adds nothing to the story! Because of that, I can’t recommend your books... sorry!😕

    Enjoyable read-where did you get the research on wolves attacking humans?
  • Delightful!

    Loved this book. First one by this author. Not only a good murder mystery that had me completely engaged, it also had me laughing out loud. Not good when my husband was trying to sleep! I immediately got three more by Nick Pirog and I’m starting the next one right now!
  • Great read!

    I simply loved this book! I was sad when it ended. Would love to know what happened to Harold and whether he was able to make up for lost time with his Thomas (I know time is something you can never get back) or what happened with Thomas and Erica. Great read!!
  • Worth the time!

    This book was hard to put down - funny and fast paced. Great mystery!
  • Disappointed

    By Melindanewyork
    Loved his book "3 am" and enjoyed the start of this one but was greatly disappointed in his anti-wildlife angle and misinformation. Felt let down that a clever story turned into typical no imagination ending. Adding anti wolf propaganda at the end cinched my decision to write my first ever book review. All this ending offered was a twisted false view of wolves. Very irresponsible by what a I thought would be a great new author. Have already told several fellow readers not to bother with this book! Just another author vilifying wolves.
  • Great Read!!
