    That's right gentle readers, Shelly Frome's book, Murder Run, garnered 5 stars from me. I am a fan of mobsters and mystery so this book hooked me from the beginning.Jed Cooper is a simple man. He likes to work with his hands and doesn't talk fast, or much at all. This makes his latest gig as personal handyman to a reclusive dancer vacationing in Connecticut ideal.

  • Ron Schwartz

    Shelly Frome’s Murder Run is a classic mystery novel “who done it”, that keeps you guessing. I made the mistake of trying to read this while I was doing something else and kept having to go back to earlier pages to pick up the story until I finally sat down and digested the story. What fun! Poor Jed Cooper on the run for doing something and being set up. Cops, the Mob, petty thugs you name it. You have to pay attention as he’s moving all the time Connecticut, New York, Miami trying to un [...]

    "Murder Run" by Shelly Frome takes readers on a journey of mystery and suspense. As I read, visiting each location, the author's vivid descriptions made me feel as if I were really there. The main character, handyman Jed Cooper, is a unique and complex character who has a history of being in trouble with the law. And now he's been accused of murdering his employer.

    Two plot threads that move slowly and some aspects of which could have been deletedA handyman (Jed) with a bit of a sordid past is living in a trashy trailer and working for Miss Julie in rural Connecticut. She is an older woman that previously lived in New York City and she seems a bit nervous and fearful. One night Jed gets a call from an unknown man that he better get to Julie quickly, otherwise she probably won’t make it. He goes as fast as he can to Julie’s residence and chases a man th [...]

  • Joan

    I had difficulty reading this book. I found the plot to be a bit confusing. The book alternates between two situations. A woman has been murdered and Jed, the handyman the woman hired, is suspected of the murder. That's the major story but we are also taken to another situation in New York involving the mob. For over half the book there seemed to be no connection to the two stories.I really didn't like the characters. Jed is sort of an anti-hero. He had been in trouble as a youth, been to a yout [...]

  • Laura Reading

    This is not a book you can read a little at a time. It takes some concentration as there are two major themes or plots that weave together eventually. It is definitely not a book I should try to read while reading 3 others. The very first page drew me in with an urgency and intensity that captured my attention. Even though protagonist Jed becomes known to us as somewhat of a loser, I still cared what happened to him and wanted him to get justice. As I stated, you need to allow yourself to become [...]

  • Carmen

    I invoked the "100 page rule" on this one. After a little over 100 pages, I still had no earthly idea what I was reading, and put it down. I didn't know Jed or have any insight into him. Sure, I knew what I needed to know about his background and how he arrived to the place in the novel, but there was no depth of character or empathy at all. His drive to tie current events to the past fell flat for me, and offered no level of interest or anxiety. The antagonists were merely irritating caricature [...]

    Murder Run will remind you why you liked the 'mafia' type movies from not too long ago. Frome has a way of making you feel like you are a part of those days as well as have you feeling like you are a part of the story. I think a good story brings you in, doesn't let you go, and when it is over you think about it for days if not more.Shelley Frome takes the reader from the rural hills of Connecticut deep into midtown Manhattan, from the lakes of Miami to the docks in New Jersey. With huge bouts o [...]

    For me, the best thing about this book was Jed! I loved him and his strange personality. He was a fun, quirky, quiet character that made you just naturally feel sorry for him. I didn't like the cops at all! They were really kind of mean to Jed. A couple other reviewers didn't like Jed, but I loved him. I don't know why, maybe I've known a few people like him. LOLThis was a little more hard core mystery than I normally read, so it was a little slow at times and a little difficult for me. But I st [...]

    If you like 1940's mob movies, you will love this book. The story is set in today's time but the character's are out of an old movie. I could picture Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney as a couple of the characters. :) Jed has made some mistakes in his life and is trying to stay on the straight and narrow. He moves away from the bad influences, and gets a job as a handyman for Miss Julie. She has moved out to the country in Connecticut and seems to be afraid of something or someone. When Miss Juli [...]

    Jed Cooper, is a young handyman who worked for a choreographer hiding out in Litchfield, CT and tried to help her, but really didn’t know why she was so afraid or of what.

Jed has his work cut out for him as the two detectives are clueless – counting on Jed to either find the murderer or confess, and the corrupt state trooper isn’t much more help. Jed is the good guy and I cheered him on. With multiple stor [...]
