“Kiss Her Goodbye delivers with nonstop pacing, breathless prose, and page-turning urgency. Provocative and edgy, this book is sure to be the thriller of the year and Robert Gregory Browne the next big thing in heart-stopping fiction.”
—Kathy Mackel, author of The Hidden

“Kiss Her Goodbye is a first-rate novel that will glue you to your chair until you finish the last satisfying word.”
—Gayle Lynds, author of The Last Spymaster

“Kiss Her Goodbye is a taut, absorbing page-turner. Robert Gregory Browne makes his mark with a compelling thriller filled with twists and surprises. A writer to watch!”
—Carla Neggers, author of The Widow


Publishers Weekly

Provocative violence, a colorful Chicago background and a dollop of the supernatural lift Browne's debut thriller. ATF agent Jack Donovan almost captures his nemesis, ruthless gangster Alex Gunderson, during a bank robbery. Gunderson's amoral pregnant wife, Sara, is shot in the ensuing chase, leaving her in a coma. Gunderson seeks revenge by kidnapping Donovan's teenage daughter, Jessica, and burying her in a coffin with enough air for three days.

As the tension builds, a vainglorious Chicago cop shoots the kidnapper, who dies without revealing Jessica's whereabouts. Browne's experience as a screenwriter shows as he shorthands the parallels between the anarchic Gunderson and straight-arrow Donovan, both of whom are single-minded and personally loyal. Elements of the supernatural, including out-of-body experiences, provide humorous relief from the breathtaking pace.

"Hammerlock on her heart" turned me off from reading the rest. -- really ? Well, that said, I went ahead and read the rest of your story - trying to ignore your grasping for cotrived after-the-fact hyperbola. (I suspect what you did. You wrote the rough draft, and then you went on a search for pump-ups. I still think you are a good story teller. - better than I could do.
