Blog Tour Stop #1: Falling Immortality by Robert Downs - Review

Title: Falling Immortality
Author: Robert Downs
Format: Paperback

Rating: 5/5

Summary: Casey Holden is a Heineken drinking, smart-assed, womanizing, viper driving ex-cop turned private investigator.  He isn't afraid to speak his mind and often gets into more trouble than he like, but he is good at what he does (and if not he has his trust fund to fall back on).  this time he was asked by a widow, Felicity Ferran, to investigate her husband's murder.  The case is 2-years old, cold and dead, and turn out to be much, much more than Casey bargained for.

Review:  I'd received this book from the Author to get the feel of his writing before creating interview questions for him.  This review is unbiased and honest, as are all my reviews.  Thank you Mr. Downs for the opportunity to get to know Casey Holden, and you a bit better.

This story is easily one of my favorites, and Casey Holden is definitely on my Top 10 favorite characters of all time.  He is a smart-ass and that is something that makes him all the more likeable to me (the fire engine red Dodge Viper doesn't hurt either).

The story flows well from start to finish, an has plenty of action to keep you occupied throughout the book.  Between the action there is sex, which is a very big part of Casey's life, but it isn't the focus of the book and the scenes are glossed over with only references left to them  and that is something that works perfectly well for this book.   Casey's mouth gets him in more trouble than he really wants, and though he tries to control it, it just usually has a mind of its own.

I honestly could not find anything that I did not like about this book and I will definitely be looking for more from Robert Downs in the future, especially if it is another Casey Holden, P.I. book.
