From the moment I started reading Hacked to Death I was gripped! I felt like I was immediately and forcefully pulled into a terrifying situation that was reminiscent of a horror or thriller movie and I had no idea how it came about. Beginning the story with a character with no name in a grisly situation was a brilliant way to build up the intrigue that continued throughout the book. Almost every chapter has a shocking beginning that jerks you into the plot, making sure that there's not a single moment to let your mind wander. Every situation seems urgent and Robinson quickly and successfully builds up the personalities and back stories of his characters. I enjoyed reading a story that was as brutal and direct as the title suggests; Robinson's writing is intelligent and intense and deserves the kind of attention that has been received by writers such as Martina Cole.

Yet again James Robinson demonstrates what a good story teller he is. This short story certainly whetted the appetite for more from this promising new author.

I thought the sex scenes were a bit naff, but I guess they're hard to write. McIntosh, the main character in this fast-paced story is convincing and I liked the gritty, dark feel. A bit on the short side as well but I genuinely want to know what happens next. Robinson is a new writer as far as I can tell but hope he does more crime stuff. He has potential and you can't beat a proper story with a few twists and turns.

A short piece of writing, sort of a long short story. From the blurb (and most of the other reviews) I thought this was going to be a gripping, thrilling story. It wasn't. It never really got going, I felt like it would any time and then it finished. Yes there was a bit of a twist at the end, but I didn't feel like it lived up to its promise. The characters weren't fleshed out enough and I didn't care for them. And there wasn't enough background. You always need one character in a book you're rooting for (not always the good guy either!) and that didn't happen here and the story just sort of drifted into the finish. Its a topical subject just now and I think Maybe its because its a short story rather than a whole book and with more time it would have got better, but for me it was a disappointment. I cannot complain too much - it was free and didn't take long to read. The free books, for me, are usually a way of trying a new author without risk and if they're good I will then look out for by them other books. I doubt this will happen in this case.

This thriller had me on the edge of my seat from the chilling prologue to the incredibly shocking ending, as Dan McIntosh attempts to foil the plans of a cold-blooded murderer. This ebook is a short and enjoyable read that I found myself racing through in anticipation of the protagonist's fate; however I thought the plot could have been prolonged slightly to build up a bit more suspense. Saying that, all the loose ends are tied up nicely, and the plot (which, as it stands, is very topical and interesting) could have easily become unbelievable if extended too far.

This novella flits between being fun and being dark, like some kind of fifties detective noir thriller set in London. Robinson lifts the lid on relationships between hackers, the police and the media. Few characters are sympathetic, but in some ways that's more of a strength than weakness.
Would have liked things to be filled out a bit more in some places, but otherwise Hacked To Death is good commuter reading.
