Just like Lawrence Kelter's other books (Ransom Beach, Don't Close Your Eyes), The Brain Vault is a captivating thriller that keeps your attention from beginning to end. I love Stephanie Chalice and the fact that not only is she a strong, feminine character but that she's multi-dimensional. I find the characters that Kelter develops throughout his novels are just so real and easy to relate to. You get so involved in the story and their interactions, you don't want to put down the book.

Lenox Hill was in our primary jurisdiction; Saint Vincent’s was not. We felt a lot more comfortable having our suspect on our own turf. sealed off stairwell, and was he the man responsible for Kevin Lee’s murder, Paul Liu’s disappearance, and the torture of John Doe? He certainly didn’t look capable. He was quite small, almost frail, and of course, his vision was occluded. His fists had been clenched during the apprehension, something I would have thought of as normal, but they were still clenched in the hospital.

What a suspensful book. Stephanie is one strong woman. She will get right into the thick of things and not let go. She is very smart, brave and quite a character. I really enjoy the relationship between Stephanie Chalice, Gus Lido and FBI Agent Ambler. This book has some twists you would never imagine, scary too. Lawrence Kelter really knows how to draw you right into a story. You feel you know these people and want them to find the bad guys. It is hard to put any of the Chalice books down for very long, I could not wait to see what happened. Excellent!!!!

To read this book you have to suspend reality a little, and isn't that what reading is all about? It was about as good as Ransom Beach which I finish just before it. I am already a bit sick of Stephanie and her ma and all the food stuff, but the story had some twists, mostly predictable.

One thing I don't like about this writer is how he describes the impossible. Here are the things that annoyed me!

1. Now, if you have ever worn "designer pumps" and tried to "kick them off while in full stride" you would know this is impossible... in fact they don't have to be designer pumps but any shoes. Try it sometime, I am sure you will fall over.

2. The other thing that I think is impossible is "I tore the hem off my silk crepe gown" and then she ends up with a micro mini skirt? Firstly, have you ever tried to tear fabric especially where you didn't have an edge to start from - again, impossible without something sharp to get you started. I would imagine silk-crepe the worst fabric to attempt this on. And if she only tore the hem off how is it that it ended up as a micro mini, it was an evening gown, hence a floor length gown. That's a lot of fabric to wrap around an ankle wound.

3. It was a Donna Karan gown - how did an cop afford that? And if she did own it why is she tearing it up. Also, I assume Donna Karan lines her dresses, and the lining would have been a) much easier to tear and b) easier to repair.

Like I said, suspend reality! For 99c its worth 3 stars from me, if I paid more for it I wouldn't give it that many.

I mostly enjoy reading Kelter's books. I do, however wonder if he has an editor or at least someone who previews the book prior to publication. I sometimes get caught up by the poor choice of words - a few examples follow:
Stephanie was not about to cow town to anyone. I think the word should be kowtow.
Something peaked her interest. Piqued?
The phrase bligh me I guess should have been blimey.
Stephanie wears Channel suits on occasion
I could go on but that might take more time than I care to spend.
If Kelter were to want a pre-pub beta reader I will be willing to be that person. He's too good a writer to be caught up in errors like this.

I enjoyed this light romp.
Good dialogue (with a generous dose of humor).
The rationale behind the plot is a little far-fetched, but; hey, it's only fiction - enjoy the ride.
I'm guessing that the author is male, but he's writing in the first person as a female - so I kept thinking; `hang on that's a guy writing this....!"

I had high hopes for this writer, so much so that I foolishly bought two of the novels at once, before reading anything by this author. Big mistake. I got through the first two chapters, but the writing was so sophomoric, with lame attempts at humor, that I could see it was going nowhere, and that it would only anger me to waste any more of my time on the books. An example:

" The last time I saw a specimen like that was on an episode of Animal Planet - the crew was in the Serengeti tracking a herd of elephants.

"Anything else you can tell me from your examination of the specimen? What did the beast have for dinner, Iams or Eukanuba?

..."Yeah, I think so too - in any case, my designer pumps had escaped a fate worse than death"

This, about a near miss in Central Park of - stepping in a pile of dog excrement!

I'll delete this, as well as my purchase of "Ransom Beach".

Too bad. Story sounded moderately interesting.

the book is an education bedsides being enjoyable reading. HOLOPROSENCEPHALY. who could ever dream up such a disease as a theme for a book? Lawrence Kelter, that's who! and he does it magnificently in The Brain Vault. there is a surprise on every page. GREAT READ! i never knew about the Beach Subway Tunnel and i am a native New Yorker. Lawrence Kelter even ends the book with a cliffhanger leaving the reader wanting more. i can't wait to read Kiss of the Devil's Breath and see what surprises are in store for the readers. thanks Larry!

I was initially turned off by the title of the book so did not buy it when I picked up #1, 2, and 4 but when I realized they kind of build from one book to the next, I decided I wanted it after all - and before I read #4. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Stephanie Chalice mysteries.
I must say this author just gets better and better. Every time I read more of his books the stories get better. I love this author books.
