    Sledge is a fast paced suspenseful thriller featuring author Ernie Lindsey s main character from his novel White Mountain Private investigator Mary Walker was crippled five years ago by a serial cop killer nicknamed Sledge for obvious and uncomfortable reasons In this short, we catch up with Walker, who left the force after surviving an encounter with Sledge to become a private detective, as she is conducting late night surveillance of a warehouse whose owner suspects his employees of steali Sledge is a fast paced suspenseful thriller featuring author Ernie Lindsey s main character from his novel White Mountain Private investigator Mary Walker was crippled five years ago by a serial cop killer nicknamed Sledge for obvious and uncomfortable reasons In this short, we catch up with Walker, who left the force after surviving an encounter with Sledge to become a private detective, as she is conducting late night surveillance of a warehouse whose owner suspects his employees of stealing merchandise Inevitably Sledge reappears, and Walker must confront the psychopath who crippled her and ended her career.This book belongs squarely in the suspense and thriller genres and pulls off both fairly well Once I began this piece I was compelled to finish it, especially after Sledge showed up in the narrative This story has a bit of a creep factor too if you try to put yourself in the character s shoes and imagine what you would do in a situation with a sledgehammer wielding maniac Lindsey s writing in Sledge is not particularly stylistic and this has the advantage of resonating easily to the modern reader and not distracting from any of the action Don t think that I am saying his writing is amateurish in the slightest, as it is very professional and polished I believe that there is a certain style and tone that works with this genre, and the author nailed it My one criticism of this piece is some of the dialogue, which I felt could be a little out of place given the dire situation I think it falls into the familiar trap of the villain pausing to have an extended 20 20 esque interview about why he did it Even though I m not a huge fan of that method of exposition, Lindsey successfully manages to work in a fair amount of character development for a short story, and it makes me wonder what he can do with a full length novel I expect that White Mountain which calls itself A Mary Walker mystery and not A Mary Walker short story , will have a goodly amount of substance and plot, not to mention action If you re a fan of Jeff Deaver, Patricia Cornwell, or novelists in that vein, I highly recommend Sledge.The and other reviews can be found at

    What a fantastic ride this short story was Wow The premise of this story was fantastic The idea of being face to face with the serial cop killer that injured but spared you 5 years after the fact and the aftermath from that, it was absolutely brilliant Edge of your seat thriller that some may say was too short but contained everything that you frequently find in a full length novel, just sped up in a faster pace I definitely want to readabout Mary Great Read

    A fast paced short story, that keeps the pages turning Mary Walker was a cop, until the night she was attacked with a sledgehammer The police never caught the man they named Sledge Years later, as a private investigator Mary watches as a cop is killed by Sledge Believing back up is on the way, she confronts the man Only to learn, her crushed leg is due to the man s cheating wife And, his mother has hidden him from being captured years ago.

    I don t normally like short stories but this one kept me on the edge of my seat Mary Walker is a feisty private investigator who as a former police officer suffered a horrible disabling injury by a perpetrator who was never caught He returns with a vengeance in this story Can t wait to read the next chapter in this series.
