The stakes are high, the race is on and there can be only one winner. Sunrise is a fast-paced whodunit that will leave you breathless.


John Bekker, the downtrodden hero of Sunset, returns to face his greatest challenge yet. When Bekker’s old friend, state prosecutor Carly Simms, wakes up next to a murdered young man in a motel room after a night of drinking, she doesn’t remember a thing—and certainly not stabbing the young man in the heart.

Although all the evidence points to her guilt, Simms hires Bekker to prove her innocence. Bekker soon finds himself ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse. The murder victim was raised in an orphanage in Utah, and Bekker makes the startling discovery that other young men from the same orphanage are being murdered around the country. To clear Carly Simms, Bekker must connect the dots and find whoever is responsible for the other killings. As he gathers evidence and closes in on a suspect, Bekker and his family become targets.

I read the first book and liked it except for the cussing and the women’s controlling pushy characters. This book is a good suspense novel but I still don’t like the cussing or the characterization of the women. I totally dislike the Janet character: pushy, controlling, selfish, and uses sex to manipulate. The relationship feels like incest. I’m sure John could find someone else. I plan to read book 3 also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read!

Really enjoyed this second in the series of John Bekker volumes. Introduced to Al Lamanda in Sunset and knew that I wanted to continue with this author. Good writing and plot,it kept my interest throughout. Looking forward to the next installment in the John Bekker saga!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!

Best read of 2014! Sunrise had me from the first paragraph. Witty, fast paced, believable, I was spellbound until I finished it 5 hours later! Superb character development, dialogue that moves the story ahead while allowing your imagination to fill in the details. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Story

I had read three of this author’s books,so was prepared for lots of action and a good story and got both. A bit more of a mystery than “Sunset” which is more of a redemption story, this one is a great,fast read that has a number of unexpected plot twists.The same characters from “Sunset” appear again,along with new bad guys. Really worth reading. I would also recommend his two “Homeless” books, which while a bit close to the Bourne playbook, are fun reads. I hope that the Bekker character keeps appearing for at least a few more times.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the 1st in the series!

I had read “Sunrise” and liked it so much that I pre-ordered “Sunset.” It was also a great read! I like the main character and the supporting characters very much and hope Lamanda adds many more titles to the series–just hoping he writes quickly!
