Product Description

Review

A rattling good read, with an unexpected twist at the end. (Sunday Telegraph on MISSION CANYON)

. . . fiction at its finest. There are so many nail-biting moments and hand-wringing twists that Mission Canyon makes exhausting reading. But that's a compliment. (Peterborough Evening Telegraph on MISSION C)

. . . very well written, racy and witty (Tangled Web on MISSION CANYON)

beautifully constructed . . . Gardiner throws up smoke screen after smoke screen while cementing the relationship between her heroine, hero and reader. (Bernard Knight, Amazon UK on MISSION CANYON)

Format: Hardcover
Meg Gardiner's debut novel, "China Lake", was an interesting thriller made notable by confident writing a particularly strong central character in Evan Delaney but let down by a too-tidy ending. "Mission Canyon", the follow-up, was just excellent - surprising, affecting and devastating, and never short of great reading. "Jericho Point" is better again, a brisk, authentic, engaging and occasionally quite frightening thriller that demonstrates another step forward for this very talented author.
The central conceit - identity theft - only works if you care about the characters involved, and the characters here are easy to care about because they don't seem like characters; they love and fight like real people, they don't always say the things you wish they would and they act with motivations that come from real feelings rather than some ill-conceived convenience of the authors imagination. The relationships are perfectly drawn, too, with shared histories all too evident, and with redemption and forgiveness not coming easy - this extending beyond Evan and Jesse, not only to his family but to everyone who plays a part in the proceedings. Drop the book and you would bruise these people, cut the page and they'd bleed.
Similarly, for the book to work the threat posed must feel threatening, and Gardiner scores here too, with her bad guys being unmistakably human but - special mention, Murphy Ming - also clearly very dangerous. And crucially, when the various pieces fall into place and the workings of the scam are revealed (in probably my favourite scene) it all hangs together; once we know why everyone is doing what they're doing it still makes sense, there are no senseless histrionics, no-one is over-reacting.

Format: Paperback
A young womans body is found dead on Jericho Point and the ID in her pockets say she's Evan Delaney. But the real Evan Delaney is still very much alive. We follow this, Meg Gardiner's 3rd book of the series, as Delaney sets about finding out why her identity has been stolen and why. Meanwhile being hunted down by a drug lords hitmen who wants the money back the fake Evan Delaney stole from him. And with all this going on we're also following the stories of an Osbourne like family that are involved with the identity theft.

Unfortunately I found this all very confusing and hard to get into. Compared to Gardiner's previous books this one is just not up to the same standards and I hope she gets back on track soon.

I have read other books by Meg Gardiner and thought them to be excellent with fast-paced stories and believeable chaaracters, but Jericho Point left me cold. The characters are dull and seem to change personality at the turn of a page, you know who's guilty more or less from the start (as does the main character) and the story is too far removed from reality and relies too much on impossible chances to progress. If there's nothing else on your shelf to read I wouldn't say it's a total waste of your time to read it, but don't expect a deep plot or a story to grip you.
