Wallace, Tom. Dantzler didn’t get much sleep during the night, and what he did get was far from restful. Mostly, there were brief periods of dozing interspersed between longer periods of wakefulness. Mostly, there were brief periods of dozing interspersed between longer periods of wakefulness her moments when he wasn’t certain whether he was asleep or awake. Either way, the previous day’s events ran through his mind like a TV news loop that keeps repeating itself over and over. He tried to shut it down but despite his best efforts he couldn’t. It played on and on, a newsreel filmed in hell

Gnosis: Greek word meaning knowledge.

Gnosis: Greek word meaning knowledge. Murder, mystery and redemption are at the heart of “Gnosis.” Detective Jack Dantzler has no clue why he has been summoned to the prison to meet with the Reverend Eli Whitehouse, a man convicted of committing a double murder twenty-nine years ago. He is stunned when Eli claims to be innocent and wants Dantzler to prove it. But Eli only gives Dantzler a single clue—look at the obituaries in the local paper for a specific two-week period. Reluctantly, Dantzler agrees to look into the case. As he does, two more people are brutally murdered. And although Dantzler isn’t aware of it, he has become a target for the killer. Dantzler goes back to Eli and pleads for another clue. All Eli says is, “think of Jesus’s empty tomb.” It will be this whispered utterance that unlocks the mystery and reveals the killer’s identity. But this isn’t just any ordinary killer. This is a man with a dark and bloody past, a man with connections to the highest levels of organized crime. Dantzler is now on the trail of an ice-cold assassin, fully aware that one slip will mean instant death. Sometimes having too much knowledge can lead to deadly consequences.

There is a lot to like in "Gnosis" by Tom Wallace, starting with lead detective, Jack Dantzler. He's the kind of detective I'd want on my side: smart, resourceful, and a thinker. Wallace has also created an intriguing story. Summoned to the state prison, Detective Dantzler is asked by a cock-sure, dying prisoner to solve a crime from 29 years ago of which he claims now to be innocent. I settle in for the read. And it's a good one with crisp dialogue, real characters, a too hot girlfriend, and some questions about that conviction that need to be asked and that draw Dantzler to accept then embrace the challenge to answer them.

While I enjoyed the read and recommend it to other mystery/thriller readers, it has some unanswered loose ends. Without giving away the ending, I was disappointed that, after all the build up, there wasn't the mano-a-mano confrontation between good and evil. With all the well-placed biblical references and tie-ins, my reader's appetite was whetted for a bang-up ending, but the ending just kind of petered out with almost a deus ex machina event to resolve the situation, but not case. What I got was a big wrap-up that was good, but a let down from expectations. The other funny/disturbing thing was that the gaggle of detectives at this locale seemed to have unlimited time (and no other cases) to cause them conflict.

Now that the bad guy is eliminated, I want to live next door to Dantzler on the lake and clink a bottle with him and chat up some of the women he's met on the way. Despite the grumbling on my part, this is a smooth, entertaining read with an ending that will satisfy most. It is a worthy "4."

I gave this book a 5 star rating because it was so good. My only hesitation is that when I look at a 5 star review, I wonder if the reviewer has some connection to the author. I got this book because of the interesting story line and it was free. Once I started reading the book I couldn't put it down. I really liked the central character Jack Dantzler. I am a guy who also really likes Harry Bosch and Jack Reacher. They are all 3 very interesting characters.

The author, Tom Wallace, proves you can write a good book without using a lot of four letter words and explicit sexual scenes. I enjoyed his writing style, his ability to hold your interest, and finally putting everything together at the end.

I liked this book so much that I just bought the other Jack Dantzler book on Amazon called the Devil's Racket. I hope Mr. Wallace continues to write this series because he does such a great job.

Tom Wallace is another new author for me and I really enjoyed this one. A story of protecting family by taking the punishment for a crime you didn't commit. As you are dying in prison of cancer, you find a way to free yourself and your family and have the true criminal found and brought to justice.

I read a lot of thrillers, from John Sanford to Lee Child and everyone in between and I am now hooked on the Jack Dantzler series after finishing Tom Wallace's Gnosis. (Warning: This is book three in the series. I didn't know there were two before this one)Set in nearby Lexington, Kentucky I greatly enjoyed reading the quality of thriller I've expect from the big named authors but set here in Kentucky. The novel kept me guessing, which is very refreshing, but not in a totally unrealistic way. I highly recommend you read Gnosis, but you might want to pick up the first two before you do. I'm headed off to order them right now!

Tom Wallace's "Gnosis" is an excellent whodunit featuring his tennis-loving detective Jack Dantzler. There are twists and turns in this murder mystery that will the reader will find intelligent and interesting. Wallace mixes murder, religion, dysfunctional family, shady characters, and cynical cops in bringing his story to life. In Dantzler, he has created a protagonist who is smart, tenacious and compassionate. This well-developed novel is highly recommended.

I picked this up as one of the 'free books of the day'. The writer gives a story so compelling that you don't want to put the book down. He keeps your attention right up to the end, as well as keeps you guessing who the murderer is. I finished this book within a few days. I will definitely be picking up some more novels by this author.Gnosis

I love a good mystery, and this one kept me wondering until the end.

I'm not a pro review writer, but I really like his characters and how he lets us readers get to know them. Makes them personable.

Excellent job, Tom Wallace!
I found this book to be thoroughly enjoyable! It was especially fun for me because I lived in Lexington for about 13 years, and many of the streets and businesses mentioned were familiar to me. I could really envision the story. As for Mr. Wallace's writing, I found his style to be highly readable, and the story plot kept me guessing...usually incorrectly. This was a great read, and I give it two thumbs up!
