    This is a darkly intense and deeply unsettling psychological thriller from Jason Starr set in New York. 44 year old Jason Harper is a struggling real estate agent in dire financial straits having not made a sale for some time. He is hoping to make a substantial commission from a old co...

    Jason!! You know I'm your girl and I love every crazy word you write. I fiercely defend you to people who don't "get" you because that's just what one does for their dude. (And I SO feel like if we ever met we would be besties...in a way that is not at all stalkerish. Maybe.) An...

    Too Far, one of many thrillers from popular writer Jason Starr, far exceeded my initial expectations, and so long as you can forgive the lack of realism, you should enjoy this freewheeling suspense-fest. It follows the demise of Jack Harper who, after struggling to make enough money to...

    This book took me totally by surprise.. I loved it! How have I never heard of Jason Starr before... will be speaking out more books by him. That ending blew me away.. did not see that coming!!! Life is not always greener on the other side. Jack Harper is a struggling real estate age...

    There's just something about a Jason Starr novel that separates his writing from the rest. Be it the personal narrative surrounding his characters, the easily plausible accidental murder of his killers, or the intense family centered dynamic - all of it jells just right to form a uniqu...

    Jack is not happy with his marriage. He and Maria have grown apart. She's not interested in anything he does .... he's not happy in his job. He only stays because of his young son. They both love their son, but they're living like roommates .. or brother and sister. When a friend of...

    Starr has given us a story about self-destruction and desperation. Jack once had a drinking problem. Now he sort of has an infidelity issue, and somehow you know that meeting someone, no matter how provocative she texts, meeting some stranger online just ain't the smartest idea. No mat...

    Jack Harper is of that age where it can make you panic and do daft things. At 44 he isn?t getting any younger and as the years go by he will have even less chance of happiness. Poor Jack was putting up with marriage rather than being part of it and he had been ok about that. Then Jac...

    Jason Starr is one of my favorite neo-noir writers in the biz today. This one is a classic setup wherein a relatively good guy (given that he's tempted to cheat on his wife) makes bad choices that kick open a chain of events that threaten to drown him. You want to feel sorry for charac...

    Outstanding shocker of a thriller with enough sudden twists to give a reader whiplash. Jack Harper is a real estate agent and a member of AA. He's abstained from alcohol for almost 6 years after a series of black-out drunks and a few violent episodes. He's married to a woman -Mari...

    Why have I never read books by Jason Starr before?! I have to admit to never having heard of him before reading Too Far but I was tempted to read this ?unknown to me? author as the blurb sounded right up my street. And now that I?ve finished my first ever Jason Starr book, I want...

    The novel surrounds Jack Harper, trapped in a loveless marriage, with a boring and unhappy career in real estate. He reconnects with an old friend from 20yrs ago Rob McEvoy. Rob appears to have it all, wealthy lifestyle, huge ego and not to mention he openly boasts of cheating on his w...

    Wow wow and WOW!! This is how I was feeling after discovering Jason Starr- I can?t believe I haven?t discovered him sooner, I absolutely devoured this book in three days I was completely hooked, when I managed to tear myself away I was thinking about the main character Jack and wha...

    How to commit a crime and get away with it? Frame someone else and watch as their life implodes and that someone hits rock bottom. That?s what?s happened to our main man Jack ? well he?s the one who is being framed! Jack has got himself in a right pickle and is desperate for...

    Jason Starr tells a tale of internet hookups gone wrong and its...wrong. The book is extremely predictable and strange. There are definite ideas here that could have worked but it is just bizarre how off the rails things go and how the characters react to these events. The main charact...

    Got a beta copy of this one from Jason Starr's newsletter. Thanks a ton! will be buying the hard cover when published for our shelves. But a typical Starr book, noir all the way. Loved the story, kept you on your toes wondering how he(Jack) was going to screw it up even more than h...

    Fast-moving quick read from Starr that offers thrills and mystery. 4.5 stars. Savage Lane was a memorable read a couple of years ago, and on the strength of that I decided to read this from the same author. That novel is also referenced a couple of times in here, which didn't go ...

    Over the years, Jason Starr has become my very favourite thriller author. His characters are beautifully flawed, live ordinary lives, and are suddenly thrust into extraordinary situations, often of their own making. We get it. No one is perfect. All it takes is one questionable decisio...

    Crime mystery set in NEW YORK / MANHATTAN I picked this novel to read on a long journey and it kept me reading right until the end. The hours flew by. Hapless Jack (is he really hapless, though?) works on commission in real estate and he is desperate for a new sale. In walks ...

    I wasn't sure that I was going to like Too Far from the opening pages, as the world of real estate is not something that interests me, but I'm so pleased that it didn't put me off as there's an absolutely gripping story to discover within the pages of this thrilling book. I absolutely ...

    First of all, I would have enjoyed this book much more if it hadn't used an abundance of swear words as they weren't necessary. The author has a really good thriller going with the plot of Jack,Maria and their son, Jonah. This is a story of self-destruction and desperation and the auth...

    What would you do if your life feel senseless, with no purpose; a marriage with no love and a boring job, that?s how Jack Harper feels about his life, the only thing that matters to him is his son. He feels that he is the only thing that brings happiness to his life. But when an old ...

    Started this thinking I'd just read for a little bit before bed. Five hours later, it's finished. WOW! Could NOT stop! Excellent read! Starts off building the story, then crescendos nonstop into action, suspense, and mayhem. Outstanding! ...

    Welcome to Fatal Attraction for the AshleyMadison age. Any male readers harboring adulterous fantasies are in for an acute case of ED. This is aversion therapy at its finest, but a flawed book in other respects. "Fugitive Red" aka Too Far's Jack Harper is one clueless dude. If he were ...

    This book was not for me. Jack is stuck in a loveless marriage with a job he hates and is just trying to stay sober for his son. An old friend introduces him to an extramarital dating site and one night he checks it out. When he goes to meet up for a date his life quickly goes down...

    I've been reading Jason's books for 20 years and I can't recall him ever having written a bad book. In fact most of them, like his latest, Fugitive Red, you just can't put down. You go to bed at night reading one of his books and get so absorbed in it that, when you glance over at the ...

    A new book by Jason Starr is always a cause for celebration. Starr explores the dark and dank underbelly of the modern lives of all kinds of individuals: the privileged, the victims, the has-beens, the never-wases. Lately he has been focusing on those who seem blessed on the surface bu...

    I don't know if I've ever read a novel with a more infuriating protagonist than Jack Harper in Too Far. If there's a bad decision, an unwise action or a wrong choice to be made then it's highly likely that he'll follow that path. Yet despite his foolhardiness, he's a character who I co...

    Jack Harper seems like nice enough guy, he works in real-estate, does what he can for his family and adores his son, however, his dwindling relationship, with his wife, Maria, has hit an all time low. When an old friend introduces Jack to the idea of an extra marital dating site, he is...

    Jack is not happy with his marriage. He and Maria have grown apart. She's not interested in anything he does .... he's not happy in his job. He only stays because of his young son. They both love their son, but they're living like roommates .. or brother and sister. When a friend of...

    Starr has given us a story about self-destruction and desperation. Jack once had a drinking problem. Now he sort of has an infidelity issue, and somehow you know that meeting someone, no matter how provocative she texts, meeting some stranger online just ain't the smartest idea. No mat...

    Jack Harper is of that age where it can make you panic and do daft things. At 44 he isn?t getting any younger and as the years go by he will have even less chance of happiness. Poor Jack was putting up with marriage rather than being part of it and he had been ok about that. Then Jac...

    Jason Starr is one of my favorite neo-noir writers in the biz today. This one is a classic setup wherein a relatively good guy (given that he's tempted to cheat on his wife) makes bad choices that kick open a chain of events that threaten to drown him. You want to feel sorry for charac...

    Outstanding shocker of a thriller with enough sudden twists to give a reader whiplash. Jack Harper is a real estate agent and a member of AA. He's abstained from alcohol for almost 6 years after a series of black-out drunks and a few violent episodes. He's married to a woman -Mari...

    The novel surrounds Jack Harper, trapped in a loveless marriage, with a boring and unhappy career in real estate. He reconnects with an old friend from 20yrs ago Rob McEvoy. Rob appears to have it all, wealthy lifestyle, huge ego and not to mention he openly boasts of cheating on his w...

    Crime mystery set in NEW YORK / MANHATTAN I picked this novel to read on a long journey and it kept me reading right until the end. The hours flew by. Hapless Jack (is he really hapless, though?) works on commission in real estate and he is desperate for a new sale. In walks ...

    I wasn't sure that I was going to like Too Far from the opening pages, as the world of real estate is not something that interests me, but I'm so pleased that it didn't put me off as there's an absolutely gripping story to discover within the pages of this thrilling book. I absolutely ...

    First of all, I would have enjoyed this book much more if it hadn't used an abundance of swear words as they weren't necessary. The author has a really good thriller going with the plot of Jack,Maria and their son, Jonah. This is a story of self-destruction and desperation and the auth...

    Welcome to Fatal Attraction for the AshleyMadison age. Any male readers harboring adulterous fantasies are in for an acute case of ED. This is aversion therapy at its finest, but a flawed book in other respects. "Fugitive Red" aka Too Far's Jack Harper is one clueless dude. If he were ...

    This book was not for me. Jack is stuck in a loveless marriage with a job he hates and is just trying to stay sober for his son. An old friend introduces him to an extramarital dating site and one night he checks it out. When he goes to meet up for a date his life quickly goes down...

    I've been reading Jason's books for 20 years and I can't recall him ever having written a bad book. In fact most of them, like his latest, Fugitive Red, you just can't put down. You go to bed at night reading one of his books and get so absorbed in it that, when you glance over at the ...

    A new book by Jason Starr is always a cause for celebration. Starr explores the dark and dank underbelly of the modern lives of all kinds of individuals: the privileged, the victims, the has-beens, the never-wases. Lately he has been focusing on those who seem blessed on the surface bu...

    I don't know if I've ever read a novel with a more infuriating protagonist than Jack Harper in Too Far. If there's a bad decision, an unwise action or a wrong choice to be made then it's highly likely that he'll follow that path. Yet despite his foolhardiness, he's a character who I co...

    Starr has given us a story about self-destruction and desperation. Jack once had a drinking problem. Now he sort of has an infidelity issue, and somehow you know that meeting someone, no matter how provocative she texts, meeting some stranger online just ain't the smartest idea. No mat...

    Jack Harper is of that age where it can make you panic and do daft things. At 44 he isn?t getting any younger and as the years go by he will have even less chance of happiness. Poor Jack was putting up with marriage rather than being part of it and he had been ok about that. Then Jac...

    Jason Starr is one of my favorite neo-noir writers in the biz today. This one is a classic setup wherein a relatively good guy (given that he's tempted to cheat on his wife) makes bad choices that kick open a chain of events that threaten to drown him. You want to feel sorry for charac...

    Outstanding shocker of a thriller with enough sudden twists to give a reader whiplash. Jack Harper is a real estate agent and a member of AA. He's abstained from alcohol for almost 6 years after a series of black-out drunks and a few violent episodes. He's married to a woman -Mari...

    Why have I never read books by Jason Starr before?! I have to admit to never having heard of him before reading Too Far but I was tempted to read this ?unknown to me? author as the blurb sounded right up my street. And now that I?ve finished my first ever Jason Starr book, I want...

    The novel surrounds Jack Harper, trapped in a loveless marriage, with a boring and unhappy career in real estate. He reconnects with an old friend from 20yrs ago Rob McEvoy. Rob appears to have it all, wealthy lifestyle, huge ego and not to mention he openly boasts of cheating on his w...

    Wow wow and WOW!! This is how I was feeling after discovering Jason Starr- I can?t believe I haven?t discovered him sooner, I absolutely devoured this book in three days I was completely hooked, when I managed to tear myself away I was thinking about the main character Jack and wha...

    How to commit a crime and get away with it? Frame someone else and watch as their life implodes and that someone hits rock bottom. That?s what?s happened to our main man Jack ? well he?s the one who is being framed! Jack has got himself in a right pickle and is desperate for...

    Jason Starr tells a tale of internet hookups gone wrong and its...wrong. The book is extremely predictable and strange. There are definite ideas here that could have worked but it is just bizarre how off the rails things go and how the characters react to these events. The main charact...

    Got a beta copy of this one from Jason Starr's newsletter. Thanks a ton! will be buying the hard cover when published for our shelves. But a typical Starr book, noir all the way. Loved the story, kept you on your toes wondering how he(Jack) was going to screw it up even more than h...

    Fast-moving quick read from Starr that offers thrills and mystery. 4.5 stars. Savage Lane was a memorable read a couple of years ago, and on the strength of that I decided to read this from the same author. That novel is also referenced a couple of times in here, which didn't go ...

    Over the years, Jason Starr has become my very favourite thriller author. His characters are beautifully flawed, live ordinary lives, and are suddenly thrust into extraordinary situations, often of their own making. We get it. No one is perfect. All it takes is one questionable decisio...

    Jason Starr is one of my favorite neo-noir writers in the biz today. This one is a classic setup wherein a relatively good guy (given that he's tempted to cheat on his wife) makes bad choices that kick open a chain of events that threaten to drown him. You want to feel sorry for charac...

    Outstanding shocker of a thriller with enough sudden twists to give a reader whiplash. Jack Harper is a real estate agent and a member of AA. He's abstained from alcohol for almost 6 years after a series of black-out drunks and a few violent episodes. He's married to a woman -Mari...

    Why have I never read books by Jason Starr before?! I have to admit to never having heard of him before reading Too Far but I was tempted to read this ?unknown to me? author as the blurb sounded right up my street. And now that I?ve finished my first ever Jason Starr book, I want...

    The novel surrounds Jack Harper, trapped in a loveless marriage, with a boring and unhappy career in real estate. He reconnects with an old friend from 20yrs ago Rob McEvoy. Rob appears to have it all, wealthy lifestyle, huge ego and not to mention he openly boasts of cheating on his w...

    Wow wow and WOW!! This is how I was feeling after discovering Jason Starr- I can?t believe I haven?t discovered him sooner, I absolutely devoured this book in three days I was completely hooked, when I managed to tear myself away I was thinking about the main character Jack and wha...

    How to commit a crime and get away with it? Frame someone else and watch as their life implodes and that someone hits rock bottom. That?s what?s happened to our main man Jack ? well he?s the one who is being framed! Jack has got himself in a right pickle and is desperate for...

    Jason Starr tells a tale of internet hookups gone wrong and its...wrong. The book is extremely predictable and strange. There are definite ideas here that could have worked but it is just bizarre how off the rails things go and how the characters react to these events. The main charact...

    Got a beta copy of this one from Jason Starr's newsletter. Thanks a ton! will be buying the hard cover when published for our shelves. But a typical Starr book, noir all the way. Loved the story, kept you on your toes wondering how he(Jack) was going to screw it up even more than h...

    Fast-moving quick read from Starr that offers thrills and mystery. 4.5 stars. Savage Lane was a memorable read a couple of years ago, and on the strength of that I decided to read this from the same author. That novel is also referenced a couple of times in here, which didn't go ...

    Over the years, Jason Starr has become my very favourite thriller author. His characters are beautifully flawed, live ordinary lives, and are suddenly thrust into extraordinary situations, often of their own making. We get it. No one is perfect. All it takes is one questionable decisio...

    Crime mystery set in NEW YORK / MANHATTAN I picked this novel to read on a long journey and it kept me reading right until the end. The hours flew by. Hapless Jack (is he really hapless, though?) works on commission in real estate and he is desperate for a new sale. In walks ...

    I wasn't sure that I was going to like Too Far from the opening pages, as the world of real estate is not something that interests me, but I'm so pleased that it didn't put me off as there's an absolutely gripping story to discover within the pages of this thrilling book. I absolutely ...

    First of all, I would have enjoyed this book much more if it hadn't used an abundance of swear words as they weren't necessary. The author has a really good thriller going with the plot of Jack,Maria and their son, Jonah. This is a story of self-destruction and desperation and the auth...

    What would you do if your life feel senseless, with no purpose; a marriage with no love and a boring job, that?s how Jack Harper feels about his life, the only thing that matters to him is his son. He feels that he is the only thing that brings happiness to his life. But when an old ...

    Started this thinking I'd just read for a little bit before bed. Five hours later, it's finished. WOW! Could NOT stop! Excellent read! Starts off building the story, then crescendos nonstop into action, suspense, and mayhem. Outstanding! ...

    Welcome to Fatal Attraction for the AshleyMadison age. Any male readers harboring adulterous fantasies are in for an acute case of ED. This is aversion therapy at its finest, but a flawed book in other respects. "Fugitive Red" aka Too Far's Jack Harper is one clueless dude. If he were ...

    This book was not for me. Jack is stuck in a loveless marriage with a job he hates and is just trying to stay sober for his son. An old friend introduces him to an extramarital dating site and one night he checks it out. When he goes to meet up for a date his life quickly goes down...

    I've been reading Jason's books for 20 years and I can't recall him ever having written a bad book. In fact most of them, like his latest, Fugitive Red, you just can't put down. You go to bed at night reading one of his books and get so absorbed in it that, when you glance over at the ...

    A new book by Jason Starr is always a cause for celebration. Starr explores the dark and dank underbelly of the modern lives of all kinds of individuals: the privileged, the victims, the has-beens, the never-wases. Lately he has been focusing on those who seem blessed on the surface bu...

    I don't know if I've ever read a novel with a more infuriating protagonist than Jack Harper in Too Far. If there's a bad decision, an unwise action or a wrong choice to be made then it's highly likely that he'll follow that path. Yet despite his foolhardiness, he's a character who I co...

    Jason Starr?s thriller, Fugitive Red, has more twists than a 60?s twist contest. Its story centers on Jack Harper, a reformed alcoholic who relies on AA meetings to stay sober. Jack is married to Maria and they have an 8-year old, Jonah, whom Jack adores. Jack has trouble on the ...
