Night Shadows (A Jake Sands Mystery). This is, to put it in the style of yore, a classy book.

Night Shadows (A Jake Sands Mystery). 0373262183 (ISBN13: 9780373262182). I purposefully slowed down while reading, since I was enjoying the characters and the tale so much I really didn't want it to end. I'm planning on picking up Ron's other Jake Sands novel, East Beach, next month. Definitely recommended reading for mystery and series detective fans!. Dec 10, 2007 Pam marked it as to-read.

However, Jake's adventures were haphazard and, in my opinion, not very well . This item: A Fatal Return: A Jake Sands Action-Adventure Maritime Thriller (The Sands Series Book 1). Set up a giveaway.

However, Jake's adventures were haphazard and, in my opinion, not very well developed. Not only did I learn a little history but the book was a good mystery with enough characters to make it hard to put down. 2 people found this helpful.

Ron Ely's Jake Sands, after several personal tragedies, moves from Los Angeles to beautiful Santa Barbara, Southern California's paradise famous for the rich scenery as well as for the rich and famous. He is thrown into a tornado of unusual, dangerous and life threatening situations.
I met Ron Ely at "Earthling Bookshop" in Santa Barbara while he was signing his book "East Beach", also a Jake Sands mystery. Both books I highly recommend. I only have one big regret: there are no more books written by Ron Ely.
For those who remember watching Ron Ely as "Tarzan" you can still purchase the TV series on DVDs.

Ron Ely, best known for his TV role as Tarzan in the late sixties, seems to be the exception to the rule that books by "stars" are usually not that great. This was a well-written mystery, with a lot of twists and turns. His main characters aren't the cardboard stereotypes you expect. Jake Sands reads as a fully-developed individual, with sophisticated tastes, forties charm and a penchant action when required.

The book was an enjoyable read from start-to-finish, and forced me to slow down my normal reading speed just to savor the moment. I'll definitely be purchasing any and all of Ron Ely's other books!
Shalizel
A gritty, no-nonsense "Detective" novel with a very original storyline and interesting twists.

I have read great suspense novels all of my life, and Mr. Ely has the right stuff. He knows his craft intimately, and draws the reader inexorably into the realm of... Night Shadows. Enter if you dare.
Lightbinder
It was a chiller thriller that ease you into the next novel. I heard there were 4 more.....any chance of finding them.

First, a preamble to this review. I admit to being a BIG fan of Ron Ely as a media person. Over the years, he developed a convincing ability to portray robust, healthy and handsome heroism, along with good nature and a gentle and good-humored demeanor around a strong core. A great role model. So I'm surprised I never got round to reading this 17-year-old book till now! As I rather expected, Ely has turned out to be a clearly intelligent author (and I'll bet he's also since learned a great deal from his three children, who have enjoyed much better education than he did). So I'm curious about what his attitudes and creative writing might be now -- especially after years of possibly heated grilling and even family debates regarding dense and narrow right-wing politics that show up so 'liberally' in NIGHT SHADOWS.

This first novel eloquently paints atmospheres and descriptions of locales and people, together with revealing Jake Sands' intimate and sensitive thoughts and feelings along the way. It's a very psychological and also evocative piece, often gritty and sometimes grisly; but the calibre of language is also extraordinarily elegant and refreshing in this age of often literary crudeness. In that way, it's like Raymond Chandler, and with very satisfying first-person narrative and inner disclosure.

There's a plethora of characters and situations that can be mind-boggling to follow and adequately assimilate; but Earl Derr Biggers did that too, with his Charlie Chan novels, although much more skillfully than Ely's first try.

A particularly curious thing about this story is that the arch villain -- and even some minor ones -- are terribly obvious, long before disclosure, and that the author may even want it that way without coming right out and exposing early on. In the traditions of Agatha Christie and Mickey Spillane, it is portrayal of character that unlocks mystery, and this book does so in spades and is not so mysterious about who the bad folks are. Now, that said, the novel is amazingly complex and convoluted on HOW the plot unfolds and who is connected with whom.

I also enjoyed how Ely accurately portrays the Central California places and coast that I know well, and the portrayals are very picturesque and colorful. He reveals a great deal about himself and his attitudes, too. For example: injuries he himself suffered during his acting career, his physical fitness regimens, his love and fixation for coffee, his favorite music, how he's swayed by looks, and even depression and drinking bout experience. In this way, I think Ely is a very candid and self-confessing author about who he is, and I find him likeable in openly sharing good and not so good aspects of himself. I would also hope he has intellectually developed since this early book, but there's regrettably nothing recent from him. I wonder if he'd like to try science fiction?

So is this book worth reading? I'd say sure, for all the fine descriptions and revelations, if not necessarily for plot.
Great book I wish he would write more
