  1. It wasn t until I hit my 40 s that I discovered my God given talent for the written word I m not totally clear on how the first book came about I wrote it in 1992 I think it was on a dare I had been working as a General Manager in the retail automotive business, and a colleague suggested that someone should write an intelligent guide on how to buy a car and beat the dealer at his own game It was a challenge that beckoned me, and for some reason the whole idea excited me With pen in hand I didn t own an early computer or word processor back then I wrote the entire book longhand I tackled this undertaking without an outline or even the most remote idea how this book would unfold My approach was totally unorganized and unconventional I just started writing, and the chapters poured out of my head I could barely keep pace with my thoughts and ideas For fear a fresh idea would fade to oblivion, I often had to stop writing long enough to scribble notes about a new idea that popped into my head.To date, Publishing has published three of my novels They Never Die Quietly, Resuscitation, and I Do Solemnly Swear The three books combined have sold 150,000 copies worldwide I m not yet hanging up there with the big guns not even close but for a skinny kid who nearly flunked English in high school, I think I ve done pretty well.Hypocrisy, my fourth novel was released March of 2014, and A Piece of You, novel number five, should be released later this year The moral of the story If you have a passion for writing, don t let rejection hold you back or discourage you Persevere and remember that rejection is a prerequisite to success Keep those fingers poised above the keyboard and write, write, write.

  1. This medical thriller was 5 as an Kindle version It was seriously bad, so bad I had to get to the end to be sure there wasn t a plot twist that would redeem it Nope, not redeemable Really poor writing I ll know to avoid s deal of the day in the future you get what you pay for I guess Aargh.


  2. Sami Rizzo used to be a really good detective until she went chasing after a serial killer and almost became his next victim Now, Sami has nightmares about him and sees a shrink When a new serial killer appears and Sami s boyfriend and lead detective, Al, has to leave for a family emergency, it is up to Sami to become the hunter instead of the hunted This book had my attention the whole time Of course, my down fall was that I took it to work with me I would read it on breaks and lunches and hurr [...]


  3. Resuscitation is the second of three books I am reviewing by this author featuring San Diego homicide detective Sami Rizzo Each of the three offer truly creepy serial killers who off their victims in unique ways and are driven by strong personal motives As a psychological thriller, this book is just over the line, enough to get your heart pounding but still let you fall asleep at night.Two years have passed since Sami almost met her end at the hands of a serial killer She has walked away from th [...]


  4. I have just had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Resuscitation by Mr D.M Annechino Mr Annechino has written a previous thriller titled They Never Die Quietly which carries on with the same central character Detective Sami Rizzo This is a novel about a vicious serial killer, a crime which Ms Rizzo has demonstrated considerable expertise and brilliance in bringing killer s to justiceThe plot basically revolves around an extremely competent heart surgeon who has recently had a government [...]


  5. I got about one third of the way through before giving up Accidentally borrowed it when I was testing out the Kindle s new lending library and decided to go ahead and read it.This book in a word embarrassing Chock full of cliches Silly, forced dialogue Amateurish plot development show, don t tell Annechino apparently spent time researching the technical details of cardiology than she spent on formulating an original or interesting thought.And with nonsensical lines like He tasted a forkful of t [...]


  6. There s a part of me that wants to give this book five stars, but while it s fast paced and a great read, I m not sure it can be called a truly brilliant book I really enjoyed it, although the bit towards the end was obviously coming Damn good read


  7. I usually really enjoy medical thrillers, But the writing was not that great and the plot was not very believable.


  8. FIRST IMPRESSION There are benefits and disadvantages to reading a book that is part of a series Especially for such series where each book can be treated as a standalone and therefore must have at least some form of conclusion for the current problem, the author has to get the attention of the reader in me to make me want to read the next one As a reader, if the first impression of the first book fell flat or below my expectations, it gets a tad difficult for me to patiently look forward to the [...]


  9. My So Called Review Resuscitation is book 2 in the Sami Rizzo series by author, D.M Annechino When I signed on for this blog tour I requested to review all three published books since I don t like to read books mid series, even if they can be read as stand alones I m not sure how or why let s blame it on the holidays but somehow I thought this was book 1 so I read it first All three books can definitely be read on their own merit but I was a little confused when I started reading this one becaus [...]


  10. I quite reading this book at 38% It just did not hold my interest The book is very wordy with not much content to grab and keep you going on the story I know others have found it a good book, and that is fine It just did not keep me going.


  11. Resuscitation by D M Annechino Note Even though this is Book 2 in the series, it works fine as a stand alone novel.Sami Rizzo quit the force at the end of Book 1 They Never Die Quietly to go back to school Now, two years later, things are different She and Al are living together, Angelina Sami s daughter is 4 years old, and Sami s mother is ill with a heart condition Also, Sami has discovered that she isn t all that interested in becoming a social worker after all Now, a new serial killer is loo [...]

  13. Ein guter Thriller mit sympathischen Ermittlern und einem guten Plot Jedoch h tten ihm meiner Meinung nach etwas weniger Seiten gut getan.InhaltEin geritzter und u erst intelligenter Killer treibt sein Unwesen Er sucht sich seine Opfer aus, setzt sie unter Narkose und f hrt Versuche an Ihnen aus Speziell auf die Herzen seiner Opfer hat er es abgesehen Nachdem immer mehr Leichen bzw.Opfer dieses Killers aufgefunden werden schrillen bei den Detectives Diaz und Rizzo die Alarmglocken.CharaktereFang [...]

  17. This is the second book in the Detective Sami Rizzo series and it is just as good as the first book.I received a free copy of the audiobook on CD in exchange for an honest reviewSUSCITATION takes place two years after THEY NEVER DIE QUIETLY Sami Rizzo and Al are now a couple Sami is going to school for Social Work and is working towards her dream Why then does she feel so unsatisfied I think most people will be able to relate to Sami s plight She misses detective work and isn t sure if she made [...]


  18. Two years before this second story revolving around Detective Sami Rizzo, she had barely escaped death by a serial killer, although she managed to apprehend him and ensure him to be brought to justice, an event that causes her resignation from police work However, she soon receives word of a new killer, a doctor gone rogue that charms his victims before performing horrible surgical experiments upon them, scattering their decimated cadavers through San Diego County This provokes Sami to appeal to [...]


  19. This is a good book but a one time read This book is the second book and takes place two years after the first Sami Rizzo has stopped being a detective due to the near death experience due to Simon, the serial killer in the first book Even though a reader could probably read this book without reading the first but I highly recommend reading the first due to the fact that occasionally the author writes events from the first book.This book was good I loved the character development of Sami You rea [...]


  20. This is the 2nd book in the series by D M Annechino featuring lead Character Sami Rizzo This book can be read as a stand alone but if you read the first book They Never Die Quietly it will add to a few references in the book The book is a very fast paced always something going on book and I really enjoyed it Sami Rizzo was a homicide detective in San Diago until she was kidnapped and nearly killed by a psychotic Killer now she is going to school to become a social worker She is living with her [...]


  21. When I finished reading They Never Die Quietly, I knew it wouldn t be long before I read Resuscitation, the second of his Sami Rizzo thrillers And I devoured this book just as quickly as the first I guess holidays really are made for reading books.Just as in the first novel, Sami has to tackle a serial killer with his own twisted motives But the shadow of her brush with death in the previous novel still looms over her She has regular nightmares and is still in therapy to try and deal with the af [...]


  22. Resuscitation is an addition following They Never Die Quietly however, I do not feel you have to have read the first book to follow this one.Resuscitation starts approximately two years after the end of They Never Die Quietly so the reader can really start fresh if they wanted I, however, hate nothing than not reading a series in order which is why regardless of my long list of books to review, I started the third book last night The one thing that turned me off about They Never Die Quietly was [...]


  23. The novel follows a cardiologist, whose research hinges on his ability to get another grant He needs to provide data to receive a grant and decides to take matters into his own hands by kidnapping people on whom to perform tests On the chase is former Detective Sami Rizzo, who quit the force after nearly being murdered by a serial killer Sami decides to step back in when her boyfriend, also a detective, has to leave town in order to attend to his ill sister The book leads you on somewhat of a m [...]


  24. I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.I listened to the first Sami Rizzo book, They Never Die Quietly, and was looking forward to listening to this one as well Even though this is a part of a series, it does stand on its own I enjoy a good murder mystery and Resuscitation doesn t disappoint It is full of mystery, suspense, and drama.Sami Rizzo, the main character, is still getting over being held by a serial killer a couple of years ago All of a sudden, she has a lot on he [...]


  25. Resuscitation by A Sami Rizzo Thriller by DM Annechino was a good book I did at points in the book laugh because of how far fetched parts on this book was Even with me saying that I still really enjoyed this story This is the 2nd book in the series and you don t have to read the first book if you don t want to I didn t finish the first book because of the content and it made me super uncomfortable and I was able to understand this book I would say though that if you want to read all the books in [...]


  26. Heart stopping Pun intendedI regret that I didn t know this was the second in a series That knowledge probably would have helped me understand Sami and Al better, but it didn t really take away from the overall story This book is of the fast paced, serial killer on the loose variety and as such doesn t break a great deal of new ground however, I personally enjoy this type of book and I did really the way the characters were written I have already purchased book 1 of the series and look forward t [...]


  27. While this wasn t the worse book I ve ever read, I am questioning my judgment in the decision to complete it The writing is bad Sometimes it was good and other times it felt like a 4th grader was writing it And the conversations between the characters was very forced you would never formally talk to a close friend or relative in that way as if addressing the queen.Aside from the writing, the book is one enormous clich for what mystery novels should contain But it shouldn t contain all the elemen [...]


  28. Better than the first Sami Rizzo book Overall the writing is average and the plot line is above average It was fun as a doctor to read this book about the evil surgeon despite there being multiple inaccuracies about medical techniques and technology This would be a great book for a long flight One thing that did drive me a little crazy was the multiple repeats of lines from the never die quietly book Sami is reported to be an amazing detective but I still felt like she was just in the right plac [...]


  29. Oh dear I was given this and am very glad I didn t pay good money for it The writing is poor and the characters are weak, inconsistent and cliched The plot is painfully thin and totally unbelievable Another writer who thinks he can produce a credible novel without bothering with any serious research The story is about a woman detective s attempts to catch a serial killer In fact she does little detective work, or any of the routine work needed to solve crimes The way she eventually identifies th [...]


  30. A pretty good thriller A crazy doctor is trying to impress the medical field, and is using innocent, live victims for his research Detective Rizzo chases him while trying to process her own trauma at the hands of a serial killer I read this quickly, gobbling up the action and anxious to see what happened next I only wish I could understand why the police in this book didn t look at cardio surgeons in the area first Weird And I was not a fan of the last chapter either Still, a good, solid thrille [...]
