Another Great Book Review For: Fifteen Feet Beneath Manhattan

Book Review: Fifteen Feet Beneath Manhattan
by JOE GANDELMAN, Editor-In-Chief. The Moderate Voice

…Fifteen Feet Beneath Manhattan (The Bizarre Adventures of Morey Caine) is a comic, thriller gothic novel centering on the saga of how Caine, a struggling alternative newspaper reporter, gets drawn into sinister things going on and lurking beneath the streets of Manhattan. There are creepy humans under the streets — and non-humans almost as creepy as the creepy humans. he gets sucked into events by an insidious sanitation bureaucrat. But the real villain is Victor ben Shargis who dreams of a future in which he takes over much more than the underground.

The only question in reading this book is: exactly where has Silverstein been HIDING all these years as a fiction writer? He is a GREAT writer and enthralling storyteller whose writing packs a hay-maker punch with vividly constructed scenes and punchy, realistic dialogue — a writer who easily elicits a chuckle or two (or more). The real shocker of this book is that you’d think Silverstein has been been writing this kind of lightening-paced thriller for years since it stacks up well against any thrillers on the market today or yesterday.

Hopefully, Silverstein will do more lively fictions books such as this…I see him selling a script to Hollywood.

Michael Silverstein: I LOVED your book…I really loved your book. And this is coming from someone who does not always enjoy fiction.
