Chasing Clay is the third book in The DeWitt Agency Files by Lance Charnes. I love a great mystery, so when this book showed up on my radar, it immediately piqued my interest. This is a twisty little mystery- with suspense, action, danger, intrigue, drama, and more. I did enjoy the story, even though it was somewhat ‘wordy’ in parts and felt a little ‘slow’ for me in the beginning. It took me a bit of time to ‘get into’ the story. But once the pace picked up, and the story unfolded a bit more, everything flowed better, and I found my groove.
Even though this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone without feeling like you are ‘missing’ anything. I did note that the first two books in the series centre around Matt Friedrich as well, and so I will definitely be going back to read them too, and finding out what else Matt has been up to.

Thank you, Mr. Charnes!

Chasing Clay was a good 4 star read and book three in The DeWitt Agency Files series.
The book started off a little slow but once I got a little further in it took off and I couldn’t put it down.

Matt is an ex-con that has a year left on his probation. He’s tired of his probation officer breathing down his neck checking up on him all of the time. When he is given an opportunity to get off probation sooner he takes the job only problem is, he as 60 days to do it.

The job pertains to art theft of ceramics. Very expensive and historical ones. Is Matt in over his head? Can he solve the mystery and get off probation?

There were twists and turns with mystery and suspense. All of the secondary characters were great. Overall, I enjoyed this book, the author pulls you in with his writing. Each book in the series can be read as a stand alone. If you’re looking for a good suspenseful mystery read this is the series for you. 1-click and get started today.

Chasing Clay by a Lance Charnes is the third book in the DeWitt Agency Files. This book is such a thrilling ride from start to finish. I will be the first to admit that I was blown away by the description however the boom had for such good reviews that I gave it a go. I’m so glad I gave it a go.
The book was fast paced and exciting. I never quite knew which way the author was going to turn.
The book was fun to read because I really felt that I got behind the characters, especially Matt who I absolutely loved. As the first book I have read by this author it was a great introduction. I am looking forward to discovering more of his work.

I was intrigued by the cover of Chasing Clay. I have never heard of Lance Charnes or his previous work until now so it was a gamble going in totally based off of the cover. I am happy that I chose to dive in and will in the future be finding more by Lance Charnes. I will say this book took me a bit to get into. I am not sure if that was because it is actually book three of a series, The DeWitt Agency Files and so I needed more back story, or if it was just a slow build up in general. I was happy I stuck to it however. This book really does blow up into a fantastic and suspenseful read that I couldn’t get read fast enough so I could know how it would all wind up. I won’t go into much more detail than what the author has divulged with the blurb because that would just ruin the way things unfold in this novel. I can’t be a spoiler, but I will tell you to take my word for it. If you love a suspenseful and twisty read then look no further this is your next read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Chasing Clay is the third book in Lance Charnes’ The DeWitt Agency Files series. It’s a thrilling crime mystery, following ex-con Matt as he attempts to complete a mission for the agency that is guaranteed to bring his probation to an early end – either with his freedom or his incarceration.
Like the rest of the series so far, Chasing Clay focuses on art theft. As the name suggests, this book centres around ceramics. This was fascinating to read – I’m pretty sure all of the art crime books I’ve read so far have been about paintings so it was great to learn about a different art form with all of the history and culture surrounding it. Helpfully, Matt is also a bit out of his depth with ancient Asian ceramics so as he studies we get useful bits of information.
It’s a clever, action-packed book. The characters have understandable motivations (and reservations about what’s happening). It’s got plenty of mystery to keep you turning the pages!
I came into the series at this book, and I found I could follow the story well enough. Everything’s and everyone’s introduced to you and you get plenty of background. So if you’re particularly interested in ceramics you could jump in here. Having been captivated by this book, though, I’d now like to go back and read the previous two!
For me, this is a five star read. I’d recommend it to fans of art and mystery, particularly anyone interested in Thailand.
