Sanity's Thief Reviews

  • Bandit

    Well, since I beta read the first Beckman thriller, Yesterday's Thief, figured why not do the second one too. This book isn't out yet, but should be so probably, because it seems done. Not much to add. Very much in the same vein as the first book, although slightly more serious or less funny or something, usually Macy really does the humor up. Mental asylums have got to be one of the greatest literary/cinematic settings ever. Eric Beckman, the mindreading PI, must do his best Nellie Bly act to i [...]

    4/5 StarsThis is a good psychological mystery, with a bit of fantasy/sci-fi mixed in. As part of an investigation, the main character has to infiltrate a questionable psychiatric facility filled with patients who all suffer from interesting mental illnesses. I've read about some of the disorders in the literature and the portrayals ring true. It was fascinating to learn more about these disorders as the motley crew of characters work together, to the best of their abilities. There are a few stor [...]

    It was my first time reading Al Macy. I think it as an okay ready. It didnt pull me, but doesnt mean it wasnt good. Just wasnt for me. Myself personally I cant see recommending it but that doesnt mean another wouldnt like it more than I did. I give it a C or 2 stars.

  • Veronica

    I found the premise of this book interesting. What if a private detective could read minds? Eric Beckman happens to have the ability to read minds. When one of his relatives disappears into an unusual psychiatric hospital, it is up to Eric to pretend to be insane in order to be admitted and find his missing relative. The story is not complicated and I found it to be an easy and fast read. I wish that there had been a little more depth to the story as the story line is intriguing. It is the secon [...]

    Sanity's Thief (Eric Beckman #2)by Al MacyI'm becoming a big fan of Eric Beckman, even if the idea of someone being able to read minds is a bit paranoid making! I began my Beckman journey over the 2017 holidays with the 4th book in the series, as it was Christmas themed, then jumped back to read the first, and now the second, in the series. In this episode, Eric's time-traveling, kleptomaniac wife, Viviana, has become obsessed with finding her family existing in the 21st century. Meanwhile, Eric [...]

  • Jeffrey Hatcher

    High marks for originality. The pace is comfortably fast. The science fiction works well with a low - key private eye with some very special talents.Macy does a sensitive job inside of the "hospital" for depicting humans with mental issues of various sorts in a respectful yet humorous way. Outside of the hospital the cast includes a rather vicious wife abuser, begging the question of how to define a mental illness. I now need to get the preceding book for the series, as this was the 2nd, and I w [...]

  • Rita Cline

    I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.Sanity’s Thief is not the type of book I would normally read, but I did enjoy reading Sanity’s Thief. If you like paranormal mysteries with a twist, then you will like this book. Having a private detective with mind-reading abilities would be wonderful. It was a fast paced, easy read.

  • Jeanne Abbott

    Eric and his mind reading adventuresEric and his wife on a search for her long lost relatives. He has to go undercover in a mental hospital to find the cousin. A page Turner. Would have liked to know that Viviana was okay at the end of the story. The ending was too abrupt.

  • Bonnie K Campbell

    Love the charactersI finished this second book in the series fast. I couldn't put it down. I have to say Al Macy's books all have been very entertaining. I can hardly wait for the next book.

  • She Chejlyk

    I really like the main character. Also liked the way the author tried to accurately depict symptoms from characters who were portrayed as having a prominent mental health issue.

  • Cecilia

    Pretty good story.

  • Jack

    Fun and fast good readingThese books are unusually well written and mistake free especially considering they are self published. The good guys are likable and seem to have decent character development. The writers real life experience is reflected in the quality of the plot development which is also nicely done. I highly recommend this author and Series.

  • Jeanne

    FunInteresting concept, in a well written style with humor. A little science fiction, a little para and a little science with nothing totally outrageous. Definitely a fun read!

  • Bonnie Keck

    Available Kindle Unlimited although I seemed to have gotten it through library thing as I did the other book, Yesterday's Thief head's up that it was freebie day I guess. Liked the book even better than the previous one, although am a huge fan of the other type of story, but this oneybe now that I knew of the characters better maybe, seemed to flow better and not cause me as much confusion as before. When I get time, although not sure just when that might be, will re-read both stories and see [...]

  • Brad Lucht

    *** 1/2I enjoy the character Macy has created, Eric Beckman, a mind-reading detective. He exhibits a breezy sense of humor, doesn't take himself too seriously.The Beckman novels are fun, short reads.

  • Cheryl Montgomery-Nolan

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I can honestly say that I love the Eric Beckman series and that I was pleasantly surprised by this story in particular. Food for thought.
