    One thought on “Prisoner Prodigal Pawn

      I’m not one for rehashing the plot (that is what the description is for) so I’ll just say what I liked and didn’t like about this novel “Prisoner Prodigal Pawn” by Robert Sparkman. First with what I didn’t like: I thought it could use some editing, as there were times that the missing (or incorrect) punctuation was actually confusing to me and I had to re-read sections to figure out exactly what was being said. Sometimes was difficult to discern direct thoughts from the narrative, an [...]

      This was a pretty good story. Quite original (for me, anyway), it's set against the backdrop of Native American tribal politics, and a law firm. It's either well researched, or the author has real personal experience with the way this stuff works or he's a good bullshitter, because I wouldn't know the difference. He writes with confidence, though!I've shelved this book as mystery, but it's not a whodunit. You know who done it pretty early on in the book; you just need to figure out what they don [...]

      PRISONER PRODIGAL PAWN is the story of a father and his two sons, all of whom are pawns in a game of greed and deception. This mystery story is satisfying as the prodigal son, Elton Mozingo, sets about solving the tangled web of their manipulation. The characters and dialogue are well-drawn. The American mystery genre usually has a wise-cracking detective morbidly observing the world around him. This is a sober outing in the genre, focused on the injustice one family endures. Mystery novels also [...]

      4.5 This was the first book I’ve read by this author Robert Sparkman, but I certainly hope it’s not the last. He has a gift for writing descriptive and life-like scenes that make us feel like we are really there inside the story, as opposed to it all just being “told” to us, as so many rookie authors make the mistake of doing. I like that this book didn’t feel stale or derivative, but instead like a new niche of suspense that serves well to help diversify a somewhat cookie-cutter genre [...]

      This book grabbed my attention from its catchy opening line, making me wonder who "they" are and what "they" were up to. All the characters have suspicious behavior that kept me wondering about the motivation behind their actions. Reading this book was like watching finely orchestrated moves in a well-played chess game. They were all pawns in a game they never even realized they were playing.Besides the well-thought-out plot with its numerous twists, the book has great descriptions that make the [...]

      a compelling read, and one that will definitely appeal to fans of thriller/mystery/action novels. Robert Sparkman infuses a unique blend of family, multi-culturism, intrigue, corruption, and shocking twists. The story itself was fairly even-paced, but I thought the beginning was a bit slow until things started to pick up. The practice of the characters constantly saying each other’s name in conversation was annoying and unnatural-sounding, but other than that they flowed well and moved the plo [...]

      wow, “Prisoner Prodigal Pawn” By Robert Sparkman was awesome! I haven’t read anything like that in a long time, if ever. For once it seemed like the characters were anything but the stock, ordinary typical hero/protag guys, but instead all had demons, motivations, secrets, and I don’t want to focus too much on it, but I thought the Native American aspect was pretty cool too. All came together to create a fresh-feeling novel that was out of the ordinary and kept me hooked throughout. This [...]

      This book was terrific! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing. It pulls you in from the beginning, and I enjoyed the author’s “voice” and style of writing. The interweaving plotlines were well-crafted and not predictable, and the element of Indian politics was a new angle for me. The characters were all interesting and well-written, and although there were some grammatical and punctuation errors, it wasn’t anything that really bothered me. I [...]

      From the opening pages of “Prisoner Prodigal Pawn” I knew it would be different from the books I’ve been reading lately and I was right! Mr. Sparkman sets of the scene and characterizations in a skillful way that not only pulls us in, but creates great visualizations and elicits emotional investments. I truly cared about the characters’ fates, and was shocked and saddened at certain things (no spoilers). An interesting and diverse cast of characters, along with several intriguing plotlin [...]
