    One thought on “Pocket-47”

    1. Pocket-47 by Jude Hardin introduces us to Nicholas Colt, a stylish private eye, in this searing bullet of a novel. It’s a quick 222 page slice of tough Florida life and also a descent into a private compound of white supremacists where the murder of innocents and the drugging of the inhabitants is de rigueur. In any PI book, there are three essentials, characters, plot and dialogue. This book scores a 10 in each category. A rare triple play.Colt is a down on his luck PI, who used to be a great [...]

    2. This book had me hooked right from the start. Nicholas Colt was a happy, successful musician, until the day he lost his band, his wife, and his baby daughter in a plane crash. He survives and somehow stumbles into a less than stellar career as a private investigator. When he is hired to find a fifteen-year-old runaway, he expects the case to be quick and easy money. But each step he takes drags him deeper into a tangled mess.Nicholas is flawed and driven by emotions even he refuses to acknowledg [...]

    3. Wow! Really very good. If you like the hardboiled stuff give this a try. Two novels worth of action in one book. Suspense, violence, mystery, and a great hero who makes the occasional mistake. Plus, laugh out loud humor in high tension moments, just like real life. A blast from start to finish.

    4. Longer ago then I would like to remember I picked up a book with an odd name. I read it. I loved it. I told my mother she had to read this author as well. She read it. She loved it. The book was “The Godwulf Manuscript” and the author ended up writing a few more books, all of which I devoured, and loved, along with the rest of Robert B. Parker’s works. The late Parker, and the amazingly productive Lawrence Block who writes, amongst other series, those about the fascinating Matthew Scudder, [...]

    5. Synopsis from Publisher's website:Twenty years after crawling from the fiery wreckage of a chartered jet and witnessing his wife and daughter perish, private investigator Nicholas Colt makes a horrifying discovery while tracking a runaway teenage girl.Fearing for her life because of some incriminating evidence she stumbled upon, fifteen-year-old Brittney Ryan takes to the streets. Colt is hired to find her, but soon finds himself in an ever-widening maze of deceit and betrayal.Determined to save [...]

    6. ehhhharted off good then got more and more unbelievable and corny as it progressed. by the end i was mostly ready to be done with it.

    7. Pocket-47 is another excellent read in the Nicholas Colt Thriller series. Once again the characters are richly developed with the villains being as nasty as any I have ever read. The good guys are very human by that I mean they have good intentions but sometimes do wretched things in order to reach what his protagonist considers to be the just end. Colt is written as a complex person with a mostly good heart, questionable moral character, and a desperate need solve the injustices of his life and [...]

    8. This book reminded me of Family Guy. There was a plot and the plot was going well. Halfway through the story everything changes and it feels like an entirely different plot. I still devoured this one. I love the length of these books. So far all of them have been finished within 2 and a half hours. The next in the series is sitting on my Kindle right now, waiting for me. Private investigator Nicholas Colt is given a job to find a missing child. Things seem to go well at first but before he knows [...]

    9. Wow. This book was more than I expected.The first page was not a great beginning for me. Probably because I was so confused."exercised the first.""busy with the second.""I never quite mastered the third."That's what got me so confused, are they terms that have to do with guns?The next page and after that was great. The action was there, events started rolling, and the ball just never stopped. It didn't get slower, only faster, which wasn't a problem.Around the middle, thinking back to what I had [...]

    10. Pocket-47 begins with a seldomly-employed, rarely-compensated Private Investigator (Nicholas Colt) accepting an apparently run-of-the-mill case. Despite Colt's prickly personality and unapologetic smart-aleck comments and mannerisms, he quickly becomes endearing to the reader. His passion and commitment to his new client allow glimpses of the kind and generous heart Colt has tried so hard to harden. It becomes apparent that the case is so much more than Colt could have imagined. As the body coun [...]

    11. Pocket-47After getting through about ten percent of this book, I couldn't discern any reason to keep going. Neither the characters nor the plot grabbed my interest, and the writing is pure pot boiler. Perhaps I'll pick it up later and have a more charitable view of it. If so, I'll revise this review.A note about my grading system. I rate books within their genres, as there is no point in comparing a self help book to a book of poems or a work of history. This is true within genres, and a four st [...]

    12. Jude Hardin introduces us to Nicholas Colt, who reminded me of Jim Rockford from the Rockford Files. Colt is a private investigator living in a trailer, spending his free time fishing, minding his own business, but that’s where the comparison ends. There’s no Angel, no Beth, no Rocky and the story doesn’t take place in California.Pocket 47 is a first person story, with Nicholas Colt, a PI who takes on a case in Florida to find a missing person. His investigation takes him into a private co [...]

    13. First paragraphsMy stepfather taught me three important survival skills: how to use a baitcaster reel, how to filet a bass, and how to adjust for the kick of a .44 magnum. I had gotten up at six a.m. and exercised the first. By nine, I stood under the shade of a loblolly pine, busy with the second. I never quite mastered the third. That’s why I carry a .38. I wore khaki shorts, no shirt, a pair of Top-Siders, and a ball cap that said Guinness. Typical north Florida fishing attire. I scraped th [...]

    14. Twenty years ago, Nicholas Colt had led a southern rock band, was married, with a daughter. Then the plane went down, killing his family, his band, and his career. He left music behind. These days he works as a private eye.When Leitha Ryan hires him to find her runaway little sister, fifteen year old Brittney. He accepts the job at a flat rate and actually locates the girl fairly quickly. Brittney doesn't want to talk at first, only saying she'd left because they were going to kill her.Who were [...]

    15. I really enjoyed this book from the moment I began reading it! Debut author Jude Hardin has made a great impression on me with Pocket-47. A great cast of characters inhabit this fast moving crime thriller. Florida Private Investigator Nicholas Colt specializes in missing persons and runaways. He is also a former famous musician whose wife and infant daughter along with the members of his band died in a plane crash twenty years ago. The memories of all of them continue to haunt him to this day. W [...]

    16. "My father taught me three important survival skills: how to use a baitcaster reel, how to filet a bass, and how to adjust for the kick of a .44 magnum." The lure and frankness of the opening line characterizes the entire story. POCKET-47 strikes an excellent balance between humor and tension, with no small amount of wisdom thrown in: "the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference." The early chapters are entertaining enough to keep your attention, and the tension builds from there. The wri [...]

    17. Thank you to First Reads because I wasn't aware of Jude Hardin before I saw Pocket 47 on the First Reads list. Jude Hardin is an awesome writer. By the end of the first chapter (actually the first paragraph) I was hooked. The writing style of this book is virtually on a personal level between the main character Nicholas and the reader. I enjoyed the easy style of writing and the humour mixed with twists, turns, violence and intrigue. I am eagerly waiting for the next Nicholas Colt novel. Highly [...]

    18. I didn't care for this novel very much. It was the Kindle special of the day so I picked it up for a cheap price. It was a quick read so I appreciated that it did not drag on, but the style of writing was not my favorite. I should also mention that I read it entirely on my iphone which may have affected my reaction. Parts of the book were well paced but it did not live up to my expectations.

    19. Nicholas Colt is a PI that is out of money when a women asks him to help find her missing sister Brittany. He takes on the job and discovers that it is linked to the plane crash that killed his band members, wife and daughter years earlier.This is a pretty basic mystery, with way to much swearing and a mushy outcome.

    20. Good Action AdventureThe action is non-stop. At 45 years of age, Nicholas Colt is a PI who we can all identity with. One could say that it's fictionalized realism. His problems, fears, hopes, and emotions are appropriate for most of us. This may not be great literature but it's sure a good read!

    21. Reasonable story line for a 220 page mystery. Since I lived in the area, I was interested in the realism of the description of the Jacksonville, FL area,and that held up well. I do think Nicholas Colt is a little over the top with a little too much action but hey, it's fiction.

    22. My first book by this author -- but not my last.Very fast-paced plot makes it a quick read because it is hard to put down.I like the North Florida setting. Makes the story and the characters unique.

    23. This was a great book! It has plenty of action and mystery, a good writing style paced to maintain interest, and a great sense of humor. The main character is likeable and heroic, like Myron Bolitar or Elvis Cole. I can't wait to read the next in this series :)

    24. I like the idea - sort of a slacker, ex-rock star detective. Detective by necessity not by choice. Good sense of Florida color and people. I would have preferred the plot to be a bit more direct and less contrived. The ex-Seal as one of the major bad guys didn't work for me.

    25. This was an daily deal and once I read the description of the book it sounded like it would be a great read. While I liked the book I did not find it to be a great read. I got the book for $1.99 so it was worth it.

    26. I like the book. It had a good plot and plot twists. A tad pridictatble. This was an easy read for me. I finished it in a few hours once I had a chance to sit and read it.I recieved this book for free and am in no way bound to give a positive review nor did I recieve any monetary compansation.

    27. Pocket-47 by Jude Hardin is a very well written book. The story line(s), characters, and descriptions are solid and consistent. It is very full and complete. It just didn't pull me in. I knew the ending from the beginning, so it lacked the suspense that I am used to in a murder mystery.

    28. Former rock star, now private eye, Nick Colt, takes job to find run away. Walks into the middle of some big time gangsterism. The more he scratches the worse it gets.

    29. Pocket-47 has it all. A protanist who is so flawed, yet so lovable, a unique plot, a dynamo pace, and a revelation at the end that is so heinous that you'll be stunned.

    30. Fast paced crime thriller but confusing as it skips from one thing to another. I could not wait to get over it so was glad the book was short. (only 222 pages)
