The Broken Window (Lincoln Rhyme Book 8)
The Broken Window (Lincoln Rhyme Book 8)
Price: £3.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Deaver's Dangerous Data, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
JD's Lincoln series never fails to entertain and enthrall me. The amount of research that this man does into his books is unbelievable and sounds very credible and that is what stands him out in the crowd. His characters are colourful and energetically manic and the little clues he drops are miniscule. If you like LR then this doesn't disappoint.

This review is from: The Lost (Kindle Edition)
Very good read and well put together tied some interesting elements together with a good variation of characters. Nice 'team' developing between PI and Journalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nesbo's adventures of Holey - Begin!, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read several of the Hole series and never been disappointed, I viewed this initial story with abjective curiosity. I needn't have bothered after the first chapter as always I was hooked. Where you can see the Holey character starting to appear his present dark and fragile complexity has yet to surface. That said, the story was as always 'Wholly' engaging to the point of 'unputdownable'

The Righteous (Righteous Series Book 1)
Price: £0.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry not interested in Fundamentalist Poligamy and it's far from endearing principles, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry Mr Wallace but I found the book thin in plot and if it wasn't for the curiosity value of the FP it would have been moved to the archives long before the end. Characters were predictable and shallow along with the story line and inevitable ending. Never the less I did finish it so it was put together decently, unfortunately I'll not be reading any more of the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ordinary, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thin Plot, unbelievable characters, mundane reading. Having read Steve Robinson's, In the Blood & The last Queen of England, I felt in comparison, that this limped, rather than motored along with very little genealogical excitement. Not to my taste.

Beautiful modern crystal,bought for the Christmas table. Had been looking for some time for replacements and these fit the bill in quality and cost. Delivered on time and well packaged, courier even returned later in the day to deliver on time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good follow up, 19 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Key (Kindle Edition)
Having read Sanctus I immediately bought this to find out what happens only to find there's a third 'The Tower' which I've yet to peruse. Which brings me back to The Key: A resonable follow up, which keeps the pace of 'Bondesque' feats of action to the very end and still left me wanting a final elusive result.Good read well thought out and worth the recommended four stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jo Nesbo would be proud, 19 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing 1 (Kindle Edition)
A clever emotionally charged novel with twists and turns a plenty. Written with three perspectives in mind, parents, police and politics, it's content leans towards a screenplay, hence the amazing TV series and the four stars as opposed to five. Never the less a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tearjerker Thriller, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gentle giant that is Mr Tayte strikes again. Our caring but tenacious character uncovers such a sad tale of brutish wickedness and misundertandings as he fights through modern day corruptness to give his client an answer to her past.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Spiffing read, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The List of 7 (Kindle Edition)
An excellent dark jaunt, written in the same Edwardian manner as the the old Sherlock Holmes tales and equally 'unputdownable'. A veritable descriptive pick and mix.
