    1. Just like Lawrence Kelter's other books (Ransom Beach, Don't Close Your Eyes), The Brain Vault is a captivating thriller that keeps your attention from beginning to end. I love Stephanie Chalice and the fact that not only is she a strong, feminine character but that she's multi-dimensional. I find the characters that Kelter develops throughout his novels are just so real and easy to relate to. You get so involved in the story and their interactions, you don't want to put down the book. I think t [...]

    2. Stephanie Chalice (pronounced Cha-lee-see) and her partner Gus Lido are homicide detectives in the NYPD. On their way back from a retirement reception, they discover a man in the park – he is covered with scars and burns, and bleeding from a bad cut on his ankle. When Gus leaves to bring the ambulance team to the site, Chalice is attacked and Tasered – however, Gus returns before she is injured anymore than the concussion she received when she fell and hit her head. A skull is also discovere [...]

    3. Stephanie Chalice, a NYPD homicide detective, is always on-the-job, even on her way home from a formal dinner. Kicking off Jimmy Choos, she races through central park to where a man lies, partially covered by a torn sheet, bleeding, barely alive. She rips her Donna Karan gown to provide a tourniquet while noting his strangely patterned skin, obvious marks of ongoing torture. And then she sees a very white skull staring out at her from under a shrub. And then, having been tasered, she loses consc [...]

    4. SUMMARYDetective Chalice is called into action when a unconscious man is found in Central Park. Barely alive, John Doe is clad only in a torn bed sheet and has sustained a life threatening wound. His body is covered in scars, essentially a tapestry chronicling his history as a torture victim. Stranger still, a human skull lies just inches away. Chalice has just two leads in this case, a skull that has been sterilized and found to be evidence free, and an comatose witness to a murder—tough odds [...]

    5. I received an electronic copy from the author. This is an interesting mystery with a heroine with a sixth sense for finding the next step in an investigation. Literally. If you like that sort of thing, you should read this. Typically, I don't like stories that take place in the real world and also contain some kind of magic. This book is no exception. In this case, the main character has bouts of intuition about the crime that seem too perfect. All of her hunches are right. She solves the crime [...]

    6. This was a really good book! It was the first book by Lawrence Kelter that I have read, but I would definitely like to read more from him. Stephanie Chalice is the main character of the book, and she is funny and well written. The book was fast paced and exciting. The villain of the book was a truly evil character. His identity is not revealed until near the end, but he is felt throughout. At times the sadistic level was a little too high for my taste, but I felt that the reasons behind his crim [...]

    7. This was the first book I have ever read by Lawrence Kelter. I am so glad I did. I loved this book and it has earned a place on my all time favorites list. It was creepy and terrifying in all the right ways. I became so engrossed in this book, I put a lot of things (chores) on hold just to sit and read it. The plot was very clever and extremely well played out. Hands down Zugg was my favorite character in the entire story. I loved the ending and the way “justice” was dealt. I can’t wait to [...]

    8. I purchased this for my kindle via amazon,began reading it immediately and couldn't put the kindle down. It has just about everything - interesting lead characters written in a believable manner. There's stacks of well placed humour, even though it is a detective thriller with murders, bodies etc. Lots of twists and turns. As you read the book you want to know what happens next - you never feel ready to put it down. I am now going to seek out the authors other works as I have just found out ther [...]

    9. very interesting story about detectives in NYC trying to find a missing man after they find the skull of the man he disappeared with. For a little while I thought I knew who the killer was but I was completely wrong. There were two things I did not like about the end of the story but I dont want to give out any spoilers. Overall it was a good book. I found it interesting that it was written from the point of view of the female detective when the author is a male.

    10. Creatively written, often humorous, witty, murder mystery. I wish it had been more suspenseful and the author had described Lido and Chalise better. Couldn't get a visual on Lido, although many of the other characters were well-described. Third of the Stephanie Chalise Series. I had not read the first two books of the series, however I didn't feel lost reading the third.

    11. I know not everyone will agree but I liked The Brain Vault and am interested in reading the other two in this series as well. Already added them to my reading list. Good strong characters and a fun storyline.

    12. I won this book from the giveaway and was worried at first I would not be able to pick up starting with book 3. But the book stood well on it's own, no problems jumping in to the story. I thought it was a fun read with good suspense and mystery.

    13. This one was longer than the others so the plot was a bit more flushed out. It was still an enjoyable quick read although the author totally turned me off in his continued use of the word Oriental when writing about people of Asian origin.

    14. Best one yet!Reading from book one in this series about Chalice my interest grew as the strong female character did. She is doing the things your mind leads up to and then twists with an intelligent turn of her own personality. Well done!

    20. save yourself from this series. It is not a thriller it is the same old same old romance triangle that takes away from the thriller.

    21. Lawrence Kelter has written a great story. The editing leaves more than a little to be desired. Still, "The Brain Vault" is well-worth worth the read.
