Product Description

Review

Praise for FUN AND GAMES (.)

Swierczynski steps on the gas early in this pulse-pounding contemporary thriller, the first of a trilogy, and doesn't let up...The sequel's appearance won't be too soon for many readers. (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)

A high octane, cinematic delight that uses film techniques of fast pace and quick cuts and highly visual scenes to rivet the reader to their chair. I loved it (Joe R. Lansdale)

A hip, dead smart novel, an entertaining start to what promises to be an addictive action trilogy (Australian)

Packs enough indestructible villains to satisfy a "Die Hard" fan, and each chapter ends on a cliffhanger...Written in deadpan sentences and funny as can be, this first installment of a projected trilogy left me greedy for more. (Bloomberg)

Cool, suspenseful, tragic, and funny as hell...I haven't had this much fun reading in a long time. (Sara Gran, author of Dope and Come Closer)

A furiously paced tale that cries out to be filmed (Canberra Times)

Reads like a Quentin Tarantino movie on speed, full of high-octane action, flying by at a breakneck pace, not for the faint of heart, but also with plenty of humor (CNN.com)

Book Description

No lawyers. No trials. No escape.

Format: Paperback
OK, I love a good crime novel and when one throws a spanner into the conventions that readers have come to expect, it's a title that really has to be read and enjoyed, almost as if the spirit of Hannibal Lector were standing over you with a delectable Chianti. In this title, the second one in the Charlie Hardie series, what the reader expects is not only turned on its head but gobbled up, chewed up and spat out to give you something that is as unpredictable as the characters which really give you that extra level of adrenaline during your read.

All in the characters are interesting, the plot line hard and fast and when added to Duane's choice of prose as well as pace it's a title that will thrill and spill in equal amounts as you wonder what the outcome will be from the very beginnings as this white knuckle story won't let go.

Format: Paperback
Write about the second part of the Charlie Hardie trilogy about «Hell & Gone» is pretty hard. Those who have read the first part, «Fun & Games» (and are there those who have not read it? Then you should be ashamed of: it is one of the best novels published last year. Mistakes should be corrected: buy this book immediately!), had lots of fun and they do not need any advice, they will buy «Hell & Gone» for sure. Because after reading the first book, one can't not read the second one.

If you still assume that those who have not read the first part do exist in nature, they would hardly need to read a review of the second part: the fear of spoilers does not allow them to read even a review of the first part. Respectively, those remain who have read this book already. For them, perhaps, all of the following is written.

Charlie Hardie, the protagonist of the trilogy, «had been nearly drowned, shot in his left arm, shot in the side of his head, and almost shot in the face at point-blank range», but is still alive. Now he falls into the hands of Accident People - those scoundrels, who unsuccessfully tried to kill him in the previous book. Accident People, a secret organization with immense possibilities, decide to keep Charlie's life. Modern medicine is capable of anything (especially in the hands of scum), and now Charlie darned, sewed and brought into consciousness. Our hero has been waiting for a brutal massacre on him, but Accident People surprise him. Charlie is left alive and placed in a secret underground prison. Moreover - Charlie is in charge of the prison, where in addition several dangerous criminals serve time. Getting out of prison is not possible: if someone tries to escape, everybody will die.

This is just so different to any other story line. First Charlie Hardie novel was enjoyable with twist after twist. This one was even more amazing. found when i got just passed half way had to stay up at night to finish it. If you have got as far as reading this then you should know the story synopsis. Fast paced, adrenalin fuelled. Please please more Charlie Hardie.

The premise of the story is very good, and that is what attracted me enough to buy it. But the story falls down in accelerating fashion in the last quarter of the book. And the denouement of the location of the mysterious prison(which I won't give away), is just silly. Pity as the story could have been very good.

I read this second volume and then the first one. I loved both. You don't need the first volume to understand this one.
