Book Description

6 Dec 1999

New paperback printing to tie-in with the ITV Drama Premiere for Christmas.

Poirot had been present when Jane bragged of her plan to ‘get rid of’ her estranged husband. Now the monstrous man was dead. And yet the great Belgian detective couldn’t help feeling that he was being taken for a ride.

After all, how could Jane have stabbed Lord Edgware to death in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? And what could be her motive now that the aristocrat had finally granted her a divorce?

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing 21 Sep 2012
By Caryn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the original dice man and found it really funny and a real page turner. This follow up was boring, trite, with the usual prescriptive so called sexy bits. The kindle version I read had loads of printing errors/spelling mistakes. It was a real waste of time.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Disappointing 16 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
Having been a great fan of 'The Dice Man' I was expecting great things from this book, but unfortunately it didn't quite live up to my expectations. It's still a good book, but I didn't find myself laughing out loud or challenged by the book's content, as I did with it's predecessor. Still glad I read it, but if you haven't read The Dice Man before, definately start out with that.

Format:Paperback
Larry Rhinehart gets in on the act as he searches for father Luke. The book is intriguing as Larry joins his father's cult in order to overcome it, and funny as he struggles with the strange world of diceliving and the even stranger people that undertake it! This is a good follow-up to the first book and is wonderfully written by both Luke and Larry. A must for lovers of the first book but impossible to read as a single novel. The usual helping of sex is supplied, but overall a book not quite as good as the first one suggested it could be. Worth a read, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can be read as a stand alone 7 Dec 2004
Format:Paperback
Eventhough this book is the second in a series (of which the Dice Man was the first), you can easily read it if you haven't read the Dice Man before.

The story starts with Larry, the son of Luke Rhinehart (indeed, the author who also starred in Dice Man) who is successful in life and who appears to be happy...on the surface. Set on the track by an ongoing FBI investigation, he wants to find his father, who is presumed death. First to help the FBI and get even with his death who left him and his mother behind, then the actually find him. He decides that in order to find him he should live the life his father has...the life of living through the casting of dice. But this means ending his life as it was, and starting a new one...

The idea is that the character gives each roll of the dice a specific meaning, i.e. if he rolls 6 he should go out and drink three pints. Then by casting dice he determines what he should do, and if he rolls 6 he goes out and drinks three pints regardless of consquences.

This book is both moving and very funny, thought-provoking and balant and can be read as a novel of a young man searching his way through life.

If you liked the Dice Man, this is a must, if you haven't you can also try this one first and be amazed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly converted version - full of errors 1 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book itself is fairly enjoyable and a good read.

However, this product shouldn't be available in its current state. There are missing and incorrect words throughout. Many are obvious character recognition errors. Other times a sentence will just end without the final word(s). It is fairly obvious they used text recognition to scan the book and then did not proof read it. Very shoddy product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good book, terrible eBook 10 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has obviously been scanned and OCR'd, but not proofread. It is littered with errors, such as a "cl" or "ri" in the original text being replaced with a "d" or "n". There are also at least a dozen sentences which just stop, mid sentence. This makes it incredibly frustrating to read, and the worst eBook I've ever purchased.

These problems don't exist in the paperback.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only a shadow of the original 22 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Firstly it must be said that this edition had an unacceptable number of spelling errors in it and in some cases even missing words at the end of sentences. This had a somewhat negative effect on the read. Secondly, for fans of The Dice Man, for me this was nowhere near in the same league. An interesting read...but I think it's a bit of a Marmite one to be honest!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 16 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say, I picked up 'The Dice Man' and couldn't put it down. This book I can dip in and out of. It's still a good book but wasn't as addictive as I had first hoped.
