4 of 5 stars
bookshelves: to-read

Read from March 19 to 22, 2013 — I own a copy, read count: 1

This is a really good read.
The blurb on the book does not do justice to the story. At times I lost track of who was who and the time frame in which the action I was reading about took place. Mr Kuhn manages to pull all the threads together and left me feeling satisfied at the end of the book.
The only negative is related to the fact that the book is self published and I was worried by the small erors that occured throughout the book. This is a minor niggle and did not effect my overall enjoyment of the book

MaryAnn Koopmann’s Good Reads Five Star Review April 29, 2013

5 of 5 stars

Read from April 17 to 29, 2013

Twelve murders, ten suspects. Confusion over identities. Embezzlement. Fraud. Incest. Blackmail. Insanity. Intrigue at its best.

Simply captivating. A solid, poignant tale of violence and innocence . . . cool, brisk and polished. . Kuhn’s unique imagination has made him a past master of fast and witty dialogue, and architect of memorable characters. The Pelman Murders follows that tradition with a meticulously plotted storyline. Gripping and full of genuine page-turning surprises.

I really enjoyed this story. There were so many twists and turns that I had to keep reading to see how the story ends. Fantastic plot interwoven with strong characters. Gordon Kuhn has created a beautiful world full of character to root for and against.

Rich and compelling…It takes a master like Kuhn to juggle a character study with shocking thriller elements and put readers on a vast emotional roller coaster ride.

DIRTY WATER — TAKE TWO


*******I changed Dirty Water slightly as I didn’t like the flow….no pun intended****

Copyright Gordon Kuhn 2013 All Rights Reserved.

There’s dirty water runnin’ ‘neath the bridge

Comin’ from stained streams up by the wooded ridge

That place what looks down on everyone,

From where the poison waters do run

It’s all dirty water there thet I see

And it keeps my soul from bein’ untied and set free

It smells of blood and sin, urine, and what-all. And then

It takes me, carries me, back to when.

There’s dirty water runnin’ ‘neath the bridge

Comin’ down in frothy streams from a high up wooded ridge

Runnin’ from someplace I once had been

It takes me, carries me, back to when. April 24, 2013

There’s dirty water runnin’ ‘neath the bridge
Comin’ from stained streams up by the wooded ridge
What looks down on everyone, especially me
And it keeps my soul from bein’ untied and set free
It smells of blood and sin, urine, and what-all. And then
It takes me, carries me, back to when.

Two wooden heads, twins.


Biden is the one who needs a brain.

Biden is the one who needs a brain.

I was amazed at the similarities between the wooden dummy and that of Joe Biden. This is not the first picture of him with this face. It is truly a shame and an embarrassment to the people of our country to have such an idiot in the office of Vice President. I cannot understand why the people of our country elect the worst and why the best don’t run. What is even more frightening is that history is filled with the few leading the many. And in many cases those who lead will lead to their own wishes being fulfilled and that will cause the destruction of those who follow.

“Too old to fight, too slow to run but I can still shoot pretty durn good!”

Retired Marine and former Pan Am/Delta Pilot John Lovell is Top Gun at Subway Sandwich Shop
Plantation, Florida:

Last week police were called to investigate an attempted armed robbery: The 71-year-old retired Marine who opened fire on two robbers at a Plantation, Florida, Subway shop late Wednesday, killing one and critically wounding the other, is described as John Lovell, a former helicopter pilot for two presidents. He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he works out every day. Mr. Lovell was a man of action Wednesday night.

According to Plantation police, two masked gunmen came into the Subway at 1949 N. Pine Rd. just after 11 p.m. There was a lone diner, Mr. Lovell, who was finishing his meal. After robbing the cashier, the two men attempted to shove Mr. Lovell into a bathroom and rob him as well. They got his money, but then Mr. Lovell pulled his handgun and opened fire. He shot one of the thieves in the head and chest and the other in the head.

When police arrived, they found one of the men in the shop, K-9 Units found the other in the bushes of a nearby business. They also found cash strewn around the front of the sandwich shop according to Detective Robert Rettig the Plantation Police Department.

Both men were taken to the Broward General Medical Center, where one, Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale died. The other, 21-year-old Frederick Gadson of Fort Lauderdale is in critical but stable condition.

Mr. Lovell was a pilot in the Marine Corps, flying former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He later worked as a pilot for Pan Am and Delta Airlines.

He is not expected to be charged authorities said. ”He was in fear for his life,” Detective Rettig said. “These criminals ought to realize that most men in their 70’s have military backgrounds and aren’t intimidated by idiots.”

Something tells me this old Marine wasn’t “in fear for his life,” even though his life was definitely at risk. The only thing he could be charged with is participating in an unfair fight. One 71- year young Marine against two punks. Two head shots and one center body mass shot.

Outstanding shooting! That’ll teach them not to get between a Marine and his meal. Florida law allows eligible citizens to carry a concealed weapon. Don’t you just love a story with a happy ending?

Old people don’t fight, they just shoot you.

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make. Anonymous

PREDATOR


My book “PREDATOR” is slowly advancing. I would like it to be further along than it is but…. Racing along is not appropriate in this type of book.

It is about a serial rapist and murderer. He is a brutal man. Extremely violent. His prey? Woman 50 and up, single, living alone.

I met the man in a jail-house interview. He has to be the nightmare that should never have been. His first rape that we know of was when he was age fourteen in 1986. His target? A forty year old woman customer in a drive-thru car wash. He drug his victim into the businesses bathroom where he robbed and raped her. Had she not gotten away from him following the assault, then most likely she would have been his first murder victim. He stated to her at one point, “I gotta figure out what to do with you.” Then he tried to get her into the trunk of her car which had the engine running. She managed to break free and get help from a business across the street from where the rape occurred.

So, reading court records, interviewing people, and putting it altogether is not an easy task.
