A Case of Infatuation book. Crime Beat Reporter Mitch Malone's rules are simple: He never. The cover and title seemed to have "romance novel" written all over them. But I started reading and, while the book has romantic aspects to it (or at least a healthy dose of lust on the main character's part), I wouldn't describe this as a romance novel. It reads much more like a suspense-thriller with dashes of romance and police procedure folded in here and there.

A Case of Infatuation.

Mitch Malone is a crime reporter and he is very good at his job. The reason he is so good is that he has no emotions. He never allows himself to feel anything for the victims and he works alone. All he cares about is getting a good story.
Until he is forced to team up with rooky reporter, Petrenka - beautiful, laconic and incredibly desirable. She is also very good at her job, and for similar reasons.
Despite resenting her presence, Mitch finds himself becoming increasingly obsessed with her.
Their first case is a very nasty murder which has all the hallmarks of a contract killing. But the killer has overlooked something. Petrenka finds a small child hiding in the house where the murder took place. For reasons of security, the child is temporarily put in Patrenka's care and this is when Mitch breaks all his own rules.
He, who has never liked children, falls in love with the little stranger and all his priorities shift. The story has now taken second place to ensuring the safety of the child.
There ensues a frantic race against time to get to the child's mother before the killer finds her.

I really enjoyed this story. The author's use of language and imagery is masterful. I particularly liked the image of the dead woman's hand lying exposed on the porch. Haunting!
Ms Gager is able to create real, believable characters and I found myself caring about them. Even the secondary characters like Daisy from the Roadhouse are well-rounded and enduring.
The plot is intriguing. I thought there were a couple of weak points. I find it hard to believe that the police would hand over custody of a child to someone whose only connection with the case is that they happened to arrive early on the scene and discover the child's hiding place. I also thought it was unlikely that the master criminal was unable to find his traitorous ex-employee, despite having unlimited resources, whilst Mitch was able to find him with relative ease.
But these are minor points and hardly detracted from the story, which was fast-paced and kept me guessing right up to the end. It also did what only the best stories do - left me wanting more.
I shall certainly be reading the other books in the Mitch Malone series.

I enjoyed "A Case Of Infatuation," and looked forward to finishing it each time my reading was interrupted. The newspaper parts of the story rang absolutely true. I wonder, though, if a local police officer named Dennis who is the reporter Mitch Malone's main contact didn't cut the reporter more slack than would occur in real life. The novel was written by a woman from a man's viewpoint, a hard thing to do, but on the whole quite successful, although Mitch's constant sorting out of his feelings for the appealing young child Joey seemed to echo a female point of view, rather than an evolving male one.

I would have rated this fine effort five stars, except for one clinker of a typo. Towards the end of the story, when the FBI and ancillary forces are about to charge into the lair of the bad guys, one of the pursuers refers to "the Calvary" coming to the rescue. That of course was the hill in Jerusalem where the Crucifixion occurred. I believe that "Cavalry" was intended.

When I picked up this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. And then I met Mitch Malone, a hard-nosed, lone wolf reporter who soon finds out that there's more to life than his reporting.

Saddled with a gorgeous intern, he heads to the scene of a double murder, where he discovers there's a very young survivor hidden away. With the help of the intern, the child and only potential witness is spirited out of the house and taken to Mitch's apartment in order to protect her.

Mitch works alone, so involving the hot intern is something new to him. Mitch also doesn't like kids, so he's breaking all of his own rules. And then he's accused of the murders and has to take his small entourage and go into hiding, and try to solve the murders and find the child's missing mother.

This book had just the right combination of humor, suspense and heart to make it an excellent story. I thoroughly enjoyed both the book and Mitch, and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Mitch Malone is a top notch newspaper reporter who is known for his persistence in sniffing out the story. He's a loner, not a team player. But all that changes in "A Case of Infatuation" by W.S. Gager when Patrenka Peterson is hired as an intern and is paired up with him. At first, although he lusts after Patrenka, Mitch resents her intrusion in his story but he comes to respect her abilities, not realizing that she has another agenda. He also doesn't know that a five-year-old little girl will win his heart and change the way he views the world.

I liked this mystery novel much more than I thought I would. It was fast, fun, and a joy to read. The characters are well-drawn and lively, and it was a pleasure to spend my time with them. The story is written with such great style that it kept my interest until the very last word of the very last sentence. I can't wait to see what Mitch Malone is up to next.

Pretty good writing for a first book of a new author. As good story and a surprising ending. Can't wait to read her next book.

A Case of Infatuation was refreshingly fun, yet still suspenseful. I absolutely loved the main character, newspaper reporter Mitch Malone. The writer did such a good job of making him a likable guy, despite his quirks, that I was in his corner, and by the end of the novel, wanted to read more.

The plot moves along at a good pace, revealing just enough details and facts to keep you from putting the book down. The writer has a unique writing style, reminiscent of the Hollywood film noir of the 40's and 50's in keeping with the plot and characters, and kept me entertained and reading along until the very end.

This is an excellent first novel by W.S. Grager, and I can't wait to see what crazy antics and trouble Mitch gets himself into in the next one.
I met the author of this book and decided to buy the book. I enjoyed meeting her. It was fun to talk with her about writting it. I realy liked it. It was fun to read and kept me guessing what would happen till almost the end..
