    • The author of "The Ninth District" does a great job in writing his debut thriller. He hooked me right at the beginning of his novel- I could see myself standing in the middle of the bank atrium with a gun pointed right at me. I believe Doug Dorow has an amazing talent for crafting sympathetic characters and believable dialogue. In the novel, FBI Agent Jack Miller is a seasoned agent. When the Federal Reserve Bank is robbed, he is paired up on the tough high-profile case with Ross Fruen, an inexp [...]


    • When I started reading The Ninth District, I was skeptical. At 131 pages(in the PDF), the book clocks in at roughly half the length of the thrillers I usually read. Bad news: it IS a quick read. Good news: The Ninth District manages to punch well above its weight for the entire length of the ride. Enter Jack Miller and Ross Fruen: the age-old combo of the veteran and the rookie in the FBI's Minneapolis field office. The veteran's seen his family disintegrate and the current murder/bank robbery c [...]

    • I'm not sure exactly what I expected from The Ninth District by Douglas Dorow, but I know what I got--an engrossing, captivating page turner that made me wonder what would happen next.I found the main characters to be solid, the villain, known only as the Governor, to be cold and calculating, and I did find myself wrapped up in the personal struggle protagonist Jack Miller had with trying to keep his family together while helping to track down the bad guy.The combination of the Minneapolis Fed a [...]


    • You have to be kidding me - my reaction to the ending. And not in a good way. Even as a setup for the second half (can't really call it a sequel) it was a lame ending. I enjoyed reading a book set locally. Actualy that was the best part of this book. Loaded with loose ends and astonishingly unbelievable behavior by most of the cast.


    • High hopes - dashed! The Federal Reserve has never been robbed. FBI Special Agent Jack Miller, pulled into a high-profile case to mentor a new agent, finds himself in a clash with the toughest opponent of his career. The chase culminates in the bowels of the city, in the storm sewers and tunnels beneath The Ninth District Federal Reserve of Minneapolis.(Author description)On reading the first seven chapters, I had high hopes for this novel.

    • It left me wanting more.This is a Mystery/Thriller with a touch of Family Drama.FBI Special Agent Jack Miller was assigned to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to the delight of his wife. When he considers taking another position elsewhere, his personal life is in turmoil. He is a professional so he makes every effort to keep the two separate. Jack's rookie partner takes the lead on a bank robbery/murder case while Jack lends a hand with his years of experience. When the villain, nicknamed The Gover [...]


    • Exciting conclusionWhen a series of bank robberies result in the murder of a pregnant woman, Jack Miller, a seasoned FBI agent and Ross Fruen, “Junior”, are assigned to the case. The robber has never killed before, so why did he start now? This is just one question they need to uncover in order to find their guy.The gunman wore a mask, and due to its appearance was quickly assigned the nickname of “the Governor”. As they follow the clues, and the case threatens the agents’ lives, they [...]


    • Doug Dorow does an excellent job in his debut thriller at forcing the reader to commit to his characters. I'm so glad this is the first in a series, because I need to know, need to experience, the evolution of these people. The story reminded me of Michael Connelly's The Black Echo though I found Durow's main character to be a bit more endearing than the infamous Harry Bosch. The story kept me intrigued, though, as needs to be in a series, it proved to be the relationships between the characters [...]


    • Douglas Dorow does a good job of building a suspenseful crime novel. The story line jumps from good guy to bad guy. I found this to be an interesting approach, but some may find it confusing. While the book is not action packed but there are enough action scenes to keep you quickly turning the pages. As for the main character Jack, Dorow creates an tough, experienced FBI agent, combined with a soft heated family man. HE is very likable and it leads the reader to root even harder for the hero.


    • FBI agents in Minnesota track a bank robber turned murderer. Pretty good story and well-written. I liked the FBI characters, but I had a hard time with the bank robber, he didn't feel like a real person and I didn't understand some of his motivations. A lot of unanswered questions gives this book 3.5 stars. I'm willing to read the next book in the series and look for some answers there.


    • This was a really good debut novel. FBI agents, Jack and Ross, are searching for a bank robber they've nick-named "The Governor". But bank robbing is not all this man has in mind. It's much bigger than that.The book moves along at a fast pace and there are few editing errors. I'm looking forward to the next book. I'd recommend this one for those who like mystery/thriller books.


    • An excellent first novel. The beginning is captivating, the story doesn't slow down through the middle, and the ending is intelligent and satisfying. More than having an exciting plot, the character's personal lives are layered, giving the story an added dimension of intrigue and suspense.


    • This was a quick read that kept me engaged, and I can see following these two FBI characters in future stories.


    • Very similar to a Patterson or Stuart woods thriller! Quick read and think it was a freebie at one point on kindle!


    • A great thriller in a unique landscape. Not a cookie cutter action yarn by any standard, this is fresh and inventive, with just the right mix of brains and kinetics.


    • I really liked this book. The characters were good and the plot was believable. The unfolding action kept me guessing exactly what the bad guys were really doing and how it was all going to play out.



    • This book kept my attention and was very hard to put down! I loved how the point of view would switch between the good guy and the bad guy, giving both perceptions. I would recommend to anyone!


    • Douglas Dorow used the setting normally associated with Lucas Davenport. Minnesota, The Mississippi… what’s not to like about it? A seasoned FBI Special Agent and a rookie partner are working a case involving a mocking, elusive thief called the Governor, due to a facemask that closely emulates the State Governor. But to date, the Governor has only scored small amounts, from several hundred to 10 -15 thousand dollars, while confounding law enforcement with guile and misdirection. When it appe [...]


    • May be Dorows first book but you'd never know!This book nails it with suspense from the the first page! The author must have done hours of research creating this novel the storyline is so realistic you'll swear your right there with every action packed event as they unfold. As FBI mysteries go this is hands down the best and most realistic FBI story I've ever read, I can't believe this is the first offering from Douglas Dorow. If you like law enforcement mystery books this is a must read novel.


    • This book is written by a new author. I like thrillers. This is an FBI thriller. It starts out with a bank robbery and a murder. Enter two FBI agents, Jack an experienced agent and Ross recently graduated from Quantico. They set out to solve the murder and the bank robberies. However, the bank robber has something bigger on his agenda than another bank.Hope that this will be a series.


    • Underground OperationsInteresting plot around two FBI agents, one fairly new & promising; the other closer to being closer to over the hill. Good tale of a brilliant criminal mind that is bit blinded by his own brightness.


    • This is an edge of your seat and keep reading until the end thriller. Jack Miller is at the top of his game along with fellow agent Ross Kruen as they try to stop the string of bank robberies by a criminal called the Governor. I will definitely be looking for other books by this author and recommend this book to anyone looking for an exciting and riveting read.



    • I love Jack!This book grabbed me and didn't let go til it ended. Jack is just gruff enoughoh, what a man!I will be reading more of him.


    • Wonderful novel!! An awesome read!! This is Douglas Dorow at his finest. He takes you through all the curves and pathways of this story. This is a must read. Likely the best book of the year! This may be the author's first book but I am already looking forward to his next work.

    • Jack is a senior FBI agent and Ross is a new FBI agent and they have just become a team. They are seeking a bank robber who has gone beyond robbing banks to killing a pregnant woman right in front of the security cameras.This is an exciting book with plot twists, one after the other. The Governor (the bad guy) is a truly bad guy who has no conscience. He kills indiscriminately and has no qualms about anything he does. He is certainly a villainous villain.There is a great deal of action and the p [...]
