A thoroughly enjoyable tale

Dan Strawn took up creative writing after a long career in business and education. In addition to Dan's longer works, his stories and essays have been published in a number of editions of Idaho Magazine and Trail Blazer Magazine. I am delighted to find his review for my thriller, Overdose:

Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2020
Overdose is Book 3 in the Ash Suspense thrillers with a Dash of Romance.

As with all Poznansky’s stories, I found it a thoroughly enjoyable tale that kept me turning the pages. Her first-person, present-tense narrative drops Overdose readers into the story on page one and doesn’t let them relax until the last word of the last scene.

Reminiscent of James Stewart and Grace Kelley in Hitchcock’s fifties classic, Rear Window, Michael and protagonist Ash parley a dose of romantic tension with devil-may-care risk taking. Dr. Patel is a first class, easy to dislike villain. Ash’s mom and dad play topsy-turvy supporting roles. Karishma, whether she’s in India or California, becomes a frequent and often unwilling prop in moving the story forward.And Susan … Poor Susan.

Then, there’s Poznansky’s tiny, tongue-in-cheek vignettes: “…I blush. Then I blush even deeper, annoyed for allowing myself to blush in the first place ….”

As usual, Poznansky’s writing in Overdose entertains, which, after all, is the primary purpose of any story in every genre.

A must read, I'm obliged now to read books 1 and 2 of the series.
