In my first year of blogging an author by the name of J.P. O'Donnell emailed me about reviewing his books which were a series focused on the Private Investigator named Daniel Cormac Gallagher. I agreed and read the Fatal Gamble and was blown away. Then I read Deadly Codes and loved it as well. Now I hound him to put out more Gallagher books. It turns out he has been busy on another front though. He spent some time in the last year working with a screen writer to develop the screen play for Deadly Codes. The screen play is was shopped around and it has found a home and will be going into production sometime in the future so I get to see one of my favorite books from last year turned into a movie.
Yesterday I had the chance to read the screen play - and though it is different from the book in some ways (as is usually the case) I think it truly captures the essence of the book and especially the main character of Gallagher and I look forward to seeing Deadly Codes made into a movie. I think the screen writer and J.P. O'Donnell did a great job with the screen play
In honor of this milestone, the author, J.P. O'Donnell is offering a set of his books, Fatal Gamble and Deadly Codes to one of my readers. If you like mysteries with a focus on the characters then these are the books for you. The mystery is important, but he interplay between the characters is what really makes these books. Well-written and thought out I enjoyed both books from the start to the end and I enjoyed the screen play as well.
