Shady Deal by Marc J Reilly is the second entry in the Tinman Series, a rollicking ride that combines crime and adventure to deliver an entertainment that readers will remember. Tinman and his Posse are thieves and they are about to pull off one of their most ingenious heists. Their target—a collection of rare coins! But with the FBI and bad guys on their heels, can they succeed? Tight spots, break-neck action, wit, and narrow escapes are just a few of the elements that enrich the plot and make this novel a must-read.

But Marc J Reilly’s prose and narrative voice will draw any reader. Right from the beginning, the reader is pulled in by the suave and hypnotic voice, and the humor starts from the very first page. The descriptive nature of the prose allows the very core of the characters to come out. The upbeat style of writing, the proliferation of humor, and the constant action make this book hard to put down. My attention — and I mean my whole attention — was drawn to these pages. Then the laughter was nonstop. There are all kinds of storytellers, but Marc J Reilly is out to just entertain readers and there is no doubt that he knows how to do it. The characters are compelling, likeable — even in the heart of mischief and crime — and the scenes are well written, each constructed to be another vital piece in the engaging narrative. This story will transport you and give you ample opportunity to enjoy a good laugh.
