    "The Suspect, by D.L. Hatton" The Suspect was an interesting story, though I found few flaws like most stories. It remained a strong storyline. The only drawback I found was in the cowboy character. The southern voice was not a true to the south. It is not as important as the words a person may hear in the southern states, as the accent is to capture. It is a hard one to capture in a book, even when you are from the south. Otherwise, the story was great and I enjoyed it. At times, moments of romance in the air, catching a person off guard, was a welcomed surprise. The game played between the characters were delivered and played out well. The cover as I have noticed on all his books, are very good. Downright beautiful art, the artist must be commended too. I do look forward to reading more of his books in the future. It is a pleasure to read from someone who has obviuosly, much experience in writing.

    "Review for The Suspect, by D.L. Hatton" Per the authors request, I have reviewed this book. Findings are below. Kelly Moran, Author In the book, The Suspect, by D.L. Hatton, I found a few grammatical errors, such as commas needed or a misspelling. Overall, there were few, and did not deter me from reading, or take away from the storyline. At times, I found the characters one dimensional, and the plot robotic. This, I believe, is due in part to the author telling the story, and not letting the characters do it for him. This is a common occurrence in authors who are just beginning their career, and usually corrects itself as the writer becomes more comfortable with the aspect. I found the first half of the book did not seem to set up the latter part, or flow well. I think it may have benefited more if the author led up to the climax, instead of throwing it in, almost as an afterthought. The back text synopsis, I feel, does not draw readers to the book. I think the characters... More > should be mentioned, with a teaser of the plot, as well as the Supreme Court ruling he has listed. The cover art, which to my understanding the author’s daughter did, was excellent. In saying that, it is apparent that the author, D.L. Hatton is a born romantic. The readers could learn something from the book, and take away with them the often injustice of the world. The idea behind the book was superb, and with some editing and tweaking, I think could succeed. I hope to see more titles from him in the future. Kelly Moran, Author< Less

    "Re: Review for The Suspect, by D.L. Hatton" As a student and pratitioner of psychology I found this to be a very tight story that portays accuratly the human reactions of those strong, proud and independent people under emotional stress. The wooden or robtic actions of the characters at times were in keeping with human nature. Not only this but the part played by the main character as a clinical psychologist is in keeping with the fruedian influence in the courts today i.e. their testimony is taken as irrefutable evidence when in reality their observations are nothing more than their vain imaginations. The character in the story changed her view upon the discovery of one piece of hard evidence. Even then it is human nature to reject such evidence unless grounded solidly in thier emotions. The first part of the story provided this vital link to the direction of the second part. Of course to the untrained mind these links may go unoticed. As to the style of writting I... More > confess mine may be the untrained mind. Nevertheless this book is a gem worthy of reading and should not be overlooked even though it may not follow the fashionable literary form of the day.
