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.
As you can probably tell I’m slightly addicted to this series of books at the moment, as they throw you headlong into the action, and don’t stop hurtling along until you get to the explosive finale.
I’ve another four books left to go in the series, and I can already tell I’m going to be gutted when I get to the end knowing it will be months before I can get another fix.
If you are a fan of Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novels, then I can guarantee you’re going to love Joe Hunter.
Would you like the recipe for an explosive story that is a gripping thriller?
Take the sister of a dead friend asking you to help locate their missing sister.
Blend together an up and coming American backwater town, its corrupt law enforcement, and a bunch of wild rednecks, with a rich corporate mobster, and a man out to avenge the death of his brother.
Mix well, leave to simmer, then add Joe Hunter.
Judgement and Wrath is another full throttle thriller that will leave you searching out the next Joe Hunter instalment as soon as possible.
As energetic as ever, Ultimatum is a fantastic follow up to Siege and an enticing set up for Simon’s future books.
Well worth a read.
I’ve started and stopped reading this book several times in the past and never got beyond the first thirty or do pages.
I have no idea why this should be, because yesterday when I picked it up I was hook immediately, which is why I didn’t put the book down again until it was finished seven and a half hours later….
This has to be the best of the Logan McRae books thus far. It’s a great story as always, with a fab mix of plot lines, made all the better by the brilliant DI Roberta Steele.
If my sexual orientation were different, she’d probably be my soul mate.
Featuring Joe Pike, Elvis Cole and Jon Stone this is by far the best Robert Crais book I have ever read. I really couldn’t put it down and so read it in just one sitting.
The story spends a lot of time, switching back and forth in time, and between character narratives but it never comes anywhere close to confusing. It all flows really well.
I actually felt a little bit sad when I turned the last page, as I was enjoying myself so much.
Well that was certainly a change from what I’m used to from a ‘James Patterson’ book.
It’s like he’s trying to be a faster paced, but far less technical Michael Crichton with this novel, and he doesn’t do a half bad job. It’s as fast and easy to read as the rest of his books, and certainly a great break away from his normal thriller themes if you find you like his style but are in need of a change.
A previous “co-author” of James Patterson, around five years ago he broke the ‘mould’ and went out into the world alone. It was one of the best things he did, his writing has improved consistently and I absolutely love his books.
