Reviews of Storm Rising from Smashwords

Review by: John Poindexter on July 16, 2011 : star star star star star
Storm Rising, a Kelli Storm Novel written by Kenneth Hoss, is a detective novel that displays great knowledge of police procedures.

This is a book that will draw you into the world of Kelli Storm and make you want to run out and find the next installment to learn more about this female detective.

A highly recommended read for all of those that like detective stories.

Review by: Carolyn Arnold on July 04, 2011 : star star star star star
Kenneth Hoss has a well-rounded character in Kelli Storm. Although, a tough and determined Detective, she has a vulnerability to her. His research and knowledge of police work show through in the pages of Storm Rising. A must read for those who love police procedural mysteries.

Review by: Todd Bush on June 14, 2011 : star star star star star
Ken has written a fabulous book with a tremendous main character. Kelli Storm is one of those characters you want to follow through several books just to see how deep Kenneth Hoss will take you inside her life and her story. I highly recommend this book!

Sample Sunday - Excerpt from Chapter Ten

Wednesday August 26th, 4:06 P.M. Washington Heights
 33rd Precinct Detective Unit

    As soon as Kelli and Bill walked into the squad room, the lieutenant waved them into his office. He didn’t look happy.
    “Close the door,” he said, and plopped back into his chair. “Before you say anything, let me tell you what I know.”
    Kelli and Bill sat down opposite the lieutenant, giving him their full attention.
    “I know you’re both pissed off at what happened today and I can’t blame you. I’m pissed off myself. Agent Farnsworth called me at three-twenty to inform me they were taking this case. When I asked him why, he told me to call One Police Plaza.”
    He paused and picked up a sheet of paper and passed it to Kelli. She took it from him, read it over and looked back up.
    “Just what the hell does this mean? They want us to cease our investigation. They don’t even give an explanation. What the hell boss?”
    “That came direct from One PP. It seems this case is directly connected to Carlos Rodriguez. And since he’s working with the DEA, they don’t want us mucking around and blowing the case they have going against this drug ring they’re investigating.”
    “And just how the hell did they figure that out? Shit, we don’t even know who killed Maria Gonzalez or attacked Pamela Dawkins,” Bill said, a puzzled look on his face.
    Kelli shook her head and laid the paper back on desk. “Are we going to let them do this? We’ve already put a lot of time into this case, and I have a feeling our witness may be ready to talk. And these sons of bitches don’t even give a shit that she almost died today!”
    “Well she didn’t, and that’s all that matters. Nevertheless, as far as we’re concerned, this case is closed. If the DEA finds out you two are still investigating it, heads will roll, I guarantee.”
    Kelli looked at Bill and he nodded. She turned back to the lieutenant and sighed. “Yeah, okay, we’re done. It’s a bunch of crap and you know it, but we’ll back off.”
    The lieutenant leaned back in his chair and looked from Kelli to Bill and back. “Okay, I’m going to hold you to it. If I hear that you’re still looking into this, I’ll have both your badges. Now get out of here.”
