I don’t know why I bother telling myself time and time again that I will, under no circumstances, come home from a book festival with anything more than a list of books to be procured over the next few months because this is inevitably what happens….
Expect much more procrastination to come
I’ve never read anything by Jeff Abbott before, but on the strength of this book I shall certainly be seeking out all of his back catalogue, and have already added the next Sam Capra novel, The Last Minute’, to my to be read pile.
The CIA is convinced that Sam has turned traitor and will do everything in it’s power to prove it. Sam must avoid capture, save the kidnapped daughter of a billionaire, find his missing wife and child, and all while trying to prove his innocence.
With the help of a mysterious organisation with seemingly unlimited resources, Sam sets out to find the truth, and clear his name.
I’m glad to say that as these Kathryn Dance novels progress, they are less and less text book, and more and more story.
This was a fantastic book, with brilliant plotting, and plenty twists and turns to keep you turning the pages, and of course you can’t beat a bit of help from the great Lincoln Rhyme.
I can honestly say I cannot remember the last time a book had me really laughing out loud, but this one achieved that on numourous occasions.
The combination of wizardry and the metropolitan police is simply pure genius, and long may this series continue.
The second in the DI John Spicer novels, and another re-read, now I can move on the the next four novels which I have but haven’t read yet.
I’ve spent so much time reading this year I’ve caught up with many of the serial characters I have been reading, hence the last few re-reads. I’m now in a position to go back to where I’ve halted in olders series and bring myself up to date there too.
It’s not very often that I re-read a James Patterson, but it’s been at least five years since I read it, and I just bagged the next three in the series for £3 from a charity shop and so wanted to refresh my memory of the character before I started reading my way through that chunk of books.
It’s also not a bad story although I did feel a little cheated at the way Detective Bennett ‘discovers’ who was behind all the crimes.
I’d forgotten how much I get confused by the chronology of this book. It’s good though, with a great plot, and is a fantastic introduction to DI John Spicer.
I want to be Jack Troutbeck.
