The Payback

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….

Blind Eye

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.
