Book Description

24 May 2012 Pi John Craine (Book 2)

PI John Craine has come to Hale Island to get away from it all - the memories and the guilt, and a past that just won't let go.

But within hours he stumbles across the dead body of a young girl on the beach. When the police arrive the body has inexplicably disappeared. Or - in his already tormented state - did Craine imagine it in the first place?

Determined to get at the truth, Craine starts asking questions. But it seems no one on the island is talking. And all too soon he finds himself tangled up in a deadly network of fear and violence.

Someone has a dark secret to keep, and Craine is getting in the way...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! 31 May 2012
By Jan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really love Kevin Brook's young adult fiction and have found that these books are enjoyed by even some of our most reluctant teenage readers, so I was delighted that he had started to write a series of crime thrillers for the adult market. I am so disappointed.

John Craine is like so many private investigators that we find in this genre. He is a loner, he drinks too much, takes far too many drugs, is tortured by the past and constantly talks things over with his wife who died violently many years earlier. The plot takes place on an island where John spent childhood holidays and where he encounters, for the first time a young half-sister, who also seems to take far too many drugs and seems to be involved with some very unpleasant people. John thinks he sees the body of a young American girl, who has been staying at his hotel with her parents, lying in the old pill box on the beach, but by the time the police arrive the body has disappeared. The hotel manager informs him that American family checked out earlier than they had planned, but John is convinced that they have all come to harm and sets about trying to find out what happened.

This story just did not work for me. There is a lot of violence, and even though I knew I wasn't going to be reading a Miss Marple-type of story, I found this hard to read. I really couldn't warm to the character of John Craine and it seemed to take a long while for the plot to get going. I hope Kevin Brooks finds new fans with this new series of books even though I don't think I shall be reading any more of them myself. On the one hand I really do applaud this author for trying something new, but I just hope he continues to also write terrific books for his young adult readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good thriller 7 Jan 2013
By Lisa P
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read Kevin Brooks' first book in this series which I really enjoyed and couldn't wait for the second. I wasn't disappointed. I love the main character John Craine - he is quite a damaged individual but he doesn't play the sympathy card and just gets on with what life has thrown at him. The story was good, well paced and intriguing. I didn't find it predictable and having read many books with a private detective as the lead I still think it is one of the best books I read last year. I am looking forward to the third in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read. 26 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although it's the first book by Kevin Brooks that I've read which leads on from another book, this story still stands well as an entirely separate book. Anyone who enjoys the darker side of literature, and doesn't mind a bit of gore will enjoy any book that Kevin Brooks has written, this book being no exception to that.
