    Highly recommended

    I enjoyed reading this first part of the thriller. The author's opening chapter/prologue was fast paced, and set me in the middle of the inciting incident along with two of the main characters. After that thrilling opening, I felt the ensuing chapters moved at a more leisurely pace, and was about to grade them as less praiseworthy when I watched a lecture by Brandon Sanderson on YouTube about building three dimensional characters and realised Michael Hiebert had done exactly that by introducing the reader to the minutiae of other characters who had parts to play in the development of the story. So, instead of cardboard cutouts of bland stock characters, the author shows us real people with real concerns that the reader can relate to.and actually care about. I look forward to reading the rest of this intriguing thriller. Anyone who likes a good thriller will love this well-written, well-plotted story

    Best Book I have read in Years

    I absolutely loved this book, I haven't read a book in years as I'm dislexic and it makes it hard to follow from time to time. The last book I read was in the 90's, other then having to read tech books for school. Right off the start Mosh Pit gets you hooked and wanting to find out what happens, I found it to be such an easy read for me. Each chapter I read I had the need to read more, Michael keeps you in suspense and wanting more. I read this book in about 3 days which is very fast for me, I just wanted to find out what was going to happen next and couldn't stop reading it. Every character in the book has something going on, the more I read about each character the more I want to find out about them. I look forward to reading Book 2 - Media Frenzy of The Rose Garden Arena Incident. I was given a copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    Suspense, mystery, and tension on every page

    Mosh Pit, the first book in Michael Hiebert's newest thriller series entitled The Rose Garden Arena Incident, is not just going to leave you wanting more, but demanding more. Mosh Pit will grab you from the first page and not let you go, as we witness a terrifying scene in the opening chapter--one which has become all too common in real life. At a concert, five people appear to be randomly shot, and only one of those victims survive. Who is the shooter? Why are they shooting? Who is the intended victim? We don't know--and neither do the victims. But in this 20K word opening book, we are given a host of possible suspects. Journey back 8 days, where we meet some of the victims, and some other characters who are yet to be involved in the terrifying scene in the opening pages. We have Karma Shaw, a 16-year-old girl with a troubled family life and her two much older girl friends, Brenda and Stephanie, two fully grown women who should know better. Then we have bouncer Rodney Esquivel, the father of the girl Karma sometimes babysits. We also have two detectives: Tony Benedetti and Dennis Martin, who clearly have a knack for being in the "right" place at the "right" time. But don't forget about the sympathetic young fighter given a break by the detectives (Matias Perez) with his musician girlfriend, Alexis Thorn. We also get a glimpse of the inner workings of alcoholic mother, Trinity Shaw, in charge of parenting Karma (and doing a horrid job of it), with her ex-husband and DJ, Lex the Axeman. Between these two parents, Karma has an impossible job of growing up to do. But Hiebert sure knows how to end on a cliffhanger, as he introduces yet another character certain to weave his way into this story: Reggie Hines, the not always responsible, yet long-distance father figure to Marshall, a young, disabled teen who lost his family to a drive-by shooting. Everyone in this story has a heavy cross to bear, and just when it gets interesting, Hiebert moves you on, leaving you turning pages and wanting more. With sharp, clean prose, and an interesting, diverse cast of characters, Mosh Pit will grab you from the very first page and leave you waiting for Part 2. Book 2 of The Rose Garden Arena Incident, Media Frenzy, will be released about a month after this. *I was given a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
