7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Andy Edwards TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Jun 2009
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me be honest upfront, when I saw that the author had worked with James Patterson previously, my heart sank. Patterson's approach to writing embodies much that is wrong with modern fiction; simplistic plotlines with shallow, poorly written characters, all set to a formula to produce a sensationalist cover to lure the unwary - you may gather I have little time for him.

There's nothing much new or inventive here, either, but it's an enjoyable tale, well told. If you read much detective fiction, you'll have encountered the characters, but the plot is believable, even if some elements are a little too conveniently concluded. As the author acknowledges, there is much that is stereotypical in the NYPD, so perhaps it's unreasonable to expect innovation in a cop novel.

I guess this will hook large numbers of people seeking something engaging for the beach, and it certainly fits the bill - it's not great literature, but nothing wrong with that - whatever, it's better than buying a Patterson novel .

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As already stated a cover with 'as good as James Patterson or your money back' smacks of a desperate publishing house trying a last resort to move a hopeless title. Anyone who has read Pattersons latest offerings will know just how desperate this is!
At first glance you can see the problem, a virtually unknown writer churning out yet another detective novel. Not exactly enticing stuff eh? When you add to this a rather pedestrian pace then this seems unappealing. However this title deserves a closer look. The plot is interesting & the whole grim setting for the gruesome torture & murder of a pretty student is very well painted. So too the main detective has her character very well rounded out & although being placed firmly amongst the 'rebel' cop genre she is lively, gutsy & intelligent & keeps the story moving. So too the plot twists are frequent & interesting and help keep your interest.
New York detective stories have been done to death but there is always room for a novel that centres an interesting plot around an interesting & likeable main character hunting a horrid murderer through the big apples murky underside. No classic by any means but a very solid & enjoyable holiday read.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I,ve never got how co-authors work . Is the dynamic 50/50? Does one of them , based on seniority probably, have ultimate veto over the material ? The reason i mention this is that Peter de Jonge ( not the most promising name for a thriller writer it must be said) has co-authored three books with best selling bloke James Patterson but this is his first solo effort.
Now i have never read anything by James Patterson so the blurb on the book that says hilariously " As good as James Patterson or your money back " doesn't really appeal to me .What i will say is that if James Patterson's books are anywhere near as good as "Shadows Still Remains " I will be reading them all.....very quickly indeed. This is a cracking thriller.
Too often thriller writers, well too many writers of all genres in truth, indulge in needless character exposition that anchors the narrative rather than propelling it forward. There are no such problems with Peter De Jonge who writes with a lean mean style that mirrors his main protagonist mean lean NYC cop Darlene O'Hara who is investigating the torture/murder of a glamorous student. Like Ellmore Leonard, like George P Pelecanos, like Don Winslow De Jonge gets to the nitty gritty of every scene with nothing extraneous. That's the way to write thrillers .
The book is not without flaws. Too many characters are drawn with broad strokes( an inherent flaw with the lean mean style maybe?)and in the case of the obese grouchy captain who wants things done his way or not at all a walking ( or should that be a waddling ) cliché. O'Hara though is a compelling character ,not without flaws herself , not least of which is her love of awful heavy metal.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By S. J. Mackenzie on 12 July 2011
Format: Paperback
My copy of this book has a sticker claiming "as good as James Patterson or your money back" and for me it is very much like any given James Patterson (probably unsurprisingly so as Peter de Jonge has cowritten with Patteson several times)

It is an easy to read, fast paced novel. Francesca Pena goes missing from a New York bar and is later found tortured and killed. Detectives O'Hara and Krekorian find themselves with 72 hours to solve the crime before the Homicide Unit take over the case. They soon find that Pena is not all that she seemed and even those who thought they knew her well didn't. O'Hara and Krekorian end up conducting their own investigation in an attempt to stop the Homicide Department making a wrongful arrest.

All in all a good read

I'm really sorry, but I just couldn't get past the 'James Patterson' recommendation and get into this flimsy, handy 'travel-sized' book. The "tense and electric thriller" rehashed stories and settings and even had 'paint by numbers' maverick female detective at its heart. Another young girl in peril story that doesn't come anywhere close to a Wallender or Rebus. Strictly for those stuck on long-haul flights.
