Dead Man's Gift: Today (Part 3)

Price: £0.49

4.0 out of 5 stars short and sharp, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was a but surprised at this being in three parts, as put together it made one medium sized book. However notwithstanding it was a good read, if a little predictable.

I have given this one four stars only because it was not quite as enjoyable as Lord of all Things. Still a brilliant read though

I was gripped from page one until the end. I have never read a book that so consumed me. Read it.

3.0 out of 5 stars read like a first attempt, 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit rambling, I found it difficult to recall a lot of the characters as the plot developed, and the end was somewhat predictable. It reads like someone wrote this who decided they could write a novel and wanted to prove it.

Stephen Leather has come up trumps again with this well crafted thriller about Triads, Secret Services and violence, all set in Hong Kong, I was gripped from the first page! and you will be too. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars poignant and beautifully written, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book had me from page one with its haunting theme and evocative prose.
The subject matter of the Holocaust is a spectre at the feast of this mystery and love story combined, I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a truly engaging reading experience.

Fast paced and intense, good entertainment without being gripping. The sort of book to take on holiday with you to enjoy

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written and disjointed plot, 7 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Time To Run (Kindle Edition)
I started this book in the expectation of something different, and in the initial few chapters it was OK. Unfortunately it went downhill from the point of the President falling off his building and living.
I didn't bother to finish the book as it became disjointed and frankly I stopped caring about the plot.
If I could get my money back I would!

Replaced my suction mount for the Garmin, this is much better, doesn't get in your eyeline like the windscreen mount, and does not move about at all Highly Recommended
