Brett Wallach

5.0 out of 5 stars

Fast-paced and unique, you don't want to wait to see how it ends!

Two separate worlds of a P.I. and rockstar come together in a very entertaining and suspenseful way with just the right dash of humor. The characters come to life in their responses and actions as the mystery unfolds. The story drew me in and kept my attention throughout. There are no slow spots or wasted dialogue to slow the story down. Another must read in the Phil Allman series!

~ Jennifer Givner


Every once in a while, Brett Wallace threatens to quit writing his Phil Allman detective mysteries. If he ever does, he'll be seeing a psychiatrist soon. Because the voices in his head are going to drive him crazy. They're that good and that irresistible, and in FREEZEOUT, they're back! Once again, the plot is wild, the musicology is first-rate, and the dialogue between Wallace's characters is so relentlessly grab-at-you that you wonder what this guy could do if he ever decides to write sit-coms for a living.

~ Dudley Lynch


Detective Brett Wallach is at it again in FREEZE OUT, entangled with an old idol of his, Felix Brigata, whom it appears he has kidnapped and is keeping prisoner. This is what happens when Brett’s hero calls him for help against threats he’s been receiving. Then, suddenly, on one visit to his prisoner, the detective finds the prison empty. The search is on.

With a list of the rock star’s known enemies, Detective Wallach undertakes to rescue the man he’d kidnapped. Considering the enemies list, the PI selects the one most likely and works from there. The villain in the story will come as a surprise. The story is written in a straightforward manner and easy-to-read language, making for a pleasant way to pass the time.

There’s lots of references to the rock stars of bygone days, something that will please fans of tales of rock ‘n’ rollers, while introducing new readers to a slice of life from the past. If one follows this type of music, one will learn how it has changed.

The characters are interesting and realistic, giving the reader a look into how age affects our heroes of the “olden” days. This is a story I’m pleased to recommend to any mystery fan who likes a touch of reality and history from the recent past. It is a story anyone can enjoy.

 I heard somewhere that most people have one book in them, but almost none have two. Wallach has now delivered on four in the P.I. Phil Allman series. Having only read the first and fourth installments, I find myself craving the middle two! A lot has happened in Allman’s development since Jesse Garon, including a more introspective look at his own cynicism, a teenage girlfriend (see Young Blood), and his ongoing love for influential artists.

As the book opens with Allman kidnapping his favorite musician, the fictional Felix Brigati, I wondered how he could manage to dig himself out of the mess. Rarely following the cliché storyline of good vs. bad, rising action to climax and then falling action, or even the feeling of cheering on the main character, Freeze Out instead follows a path of real life. I eventually became so immersed in Phil Allman’s world that I had to go back to the beginning to make sure Felix Brigati wasn’t a real person. Well done by Wallach, and I can’t wait for more!
