2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and confusing .a novel to be missed, 15 Oct. 2007
This review is from: The Passenger (Paperback)
When I submit reviews is to highlight a good work,however in this occasion it has to be for a negative one.
The novel starts off with a promising begining but soon deteriorates and slows down to an exasperating pace ,eventually to culminate in a disastrous ending.
I totally agree with the previous reviewer, a very disappointing effort and I'll be very careful to buy any more books from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A strong and emotional crime story, 14 Nov. 2006
This review is from: The Fields of Grief (Hardcover)
I found this novel to be believable and with real-life characters. Delorme and Cardinal make a great duo.Without giving away the plot,I can stress it is indeed a very emotional story and I urge readers to read it.It is not a complex book and the sipmlicity of it makes for a great read.Well done Giles.


The Immaculate Conception
The Immaculate Conception
by Patrick Lynch
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Sequel To The Annunciation, 16 May 2002
This thriller is now very hard to find.That's a shame because those who read Lynch's debut thriller "The Annunciation" would love and enjoy this sequel.This novel stars off with two seemingly different plots.One revolves around a beautiful woman on a mission ,an Australian reporter on the trail and a Japanese Industrial dynasty in the forefront of Technological power:the other about a cool hard-hitting Washington politico on the make.The author masterly weaves these sub-plots together to create an intricate well written novel!The plot twist at the end is great.The characters are well drawn and three dimensional.This is an exhuberant,wild and unique book that's well worth digging out-especially if you read its predecessor.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read worth every second!!, 1 Nov. 2000
This review is from: The Stretch (Paperback)
Leather's easy writing style makes this novel a pleasure to read.The rapid-fire dialogue and scenes are cinematic,and the storytelling puts most movies to shame.The main characters were given depth,making them three dimensional and believable.As the story developed I found myself eager to see what was in store for each of them.It is rare to find a plot,that is simple yet so fast moving and exciting and told in a style so economical it makes you breathless.The story-line has its interesting twists and turns and un unexpected fnale that comes as a shock.Don't wait for the paperback edition get this one now!

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BE MISSED!, 17 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Hungry Ghost (Paperback)
Not one of Leather's most known books, nonetheless it ranks right up there in value with his other works. From the beginning the reader is caught in a web of twisted conspiracy and international spies, a world of murder, treachery, revenge power and love. One can actually visualize the events as they take place, you are transformed into the times and surroundings by the author. One can "feel" the characters, they live and breath and the build-up reaching to the headlong confrontation between ex-SAS Howells, Dugan and Ng is unbeatable. This is a well-constructed stunning thriller that's well worth digging out-especially if you are a Stephen Leather fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another top- notch thriller from the master of the genre!, 4 Oct. 2000
An excellent thriller perhaps Leather's best! The tension is continuous, the characters are well developed and the plot teases the reader with the possibilities of the identity of the killer and the motive behind the killings. Written in short chapters one of Leather's trademarks, the reader's interests are always maintained. One mention should be given to the descriptive claustrophobic atmosphere set in the tunnels, gripping stuff. For a fast-paced page turner, that you don't want to end, read Stephen leather.


The Double Tap (Stephen Leather Thrillers)

5.0 out of 5 stars A top notch-thriller, 12 Sept. 2000
If you've read The Chinaman and The Long Shot which were excellent, then you owe it to yourself to read this book, more so if you've enjoyed the characters like (Joker) Mike Cramer, and the Colonel featured here again. The Double Tap holds your attention to the very last page with three seemingly different plots that come together smoothly to create an explosive yet bittersweet finale. This fast paced novel has Leather's typical twists and turns and true suspense to keep the reader up half the night. The writing is flawless never loosing the edge of precision, which is the hallmark of a major storyteller. Leather in my opinion is among the best writers of the genre and can only get better.


Omega

Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BE MISSED!!!, 18 Dec. 1999
This review is from: Omega (Mass Market Paperback)
I have read all P.Lynch books(except The Immaculate Conception which by the way I am desperately looking for)and all have been outstanding,this one was no let down.The twists and turns in all his books are always brilliant.In this particular novel the topic is original and deeply alarming.The characters are really likeable and highly convincing(Dr.Ford just won't let go).I'll have to be on the lookout for his new one FIGURE OF EIGHT soon to be released...


Angels Flight
Angels Flight
by Michael Connelly
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ, 18 Dec. 1999
This review is from: Angels Flight (Paperback)
I have read three previous Connelly novels namely The Poet,Bloodwork and Trunk Music and enjoyed the first two and was slightly disappointed with the latter and Harry Bosch specially.However,this one turn out to be a pleasant surprise.This novel has it all. A great plot ,twists and turns and the suspense builds up to a great climax.One mention should go to the characters topped by Harry who are truly outstanding and very believable and not the cardboard type that you come across on most modern fiction nowadays.Hats off to Michael Connelly,again.Hope to get my hands on Void Moon which is going to be released soon.
