Four Star Rating for antiques mystery novel The Portland Payoff
“Author Robin Williams’ intelligence is evident on every page. It is clear he knows a lot about the world of antiques. It is his passion that makes this story come to life. Never before has the gritty world of antique shows been so accurately described. Every elbow thrown between seniors, every item smoothly stolen from table tops and every sound, smell, and sight are present. For anyone wondering if there really is any danger to collecting antiques, look no further than Portland Payoff.
Williams also has a keen ability to make every character, even the minor ones, feel real. When a pushy man trying to get information about someone’s whereabouts bullies a young woman, the reader can envision the fear on her face and can feel pity for her plight. Williams creates this emotional reaction in the reader with only a few sentences.”
–Andrew Keyser, Portland Book Review
