Blood and Justice: A Private Investigator Mystery Series (A Jake & Annie Lincoln Thriller Book 1)
Blood and Justice: A Private Investigator Mystery Series (A Jake & Annie Lincoln Thriller Book 1)
Price: £0.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but a little long-winded, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be fair, I started the book just after finishing one by Balducci, a very experienced writer.

In comparison I found this a bit clunky with too much "noise". Do you really need an entire chapter to describe a dead end in the investigation, involving aspects and people that were new to the story and never appeared again later? A long paragraph detailing the ingredients of the investigators' supper? Keeping in mind the killer is revealed fairly early and the story is more about the chase maybe the focus could have been on the psychology, relevant details etc.

Overall a nice little book but I feel the editor has let down the writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars my niece loved these!, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
so much details, my six year old niece was delighted. So was her nine year old brother (more with the assembling bit but it, hey, it occupied the whole family!). Worth the money, especially as it fit the Playmobil doll house she was given at the same time.

2.0 out of 5 stars bad fit, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I might be unlucky but one corner is cut too tight so it keeps on slipping off. That would be annoying enough but it also means that I have to fiddle and stretch to plug in my headphones.
A pity I missed the boat to return the item (mea culpa - I left it too long)

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to finish!, 22 April 2014

one of those books you want to finish to see what happens. Read the whole serious (the last, King & Maxwell, being a bit disappointing) and am hooked.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit "clunky" at times, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King and Maxwell (Kindle Edition)
I loved the first five books from the series but found this a bit clunky: there is no reason to ask "you've never protected the president, have you?". Even I know the answer - since the sequel started.
Otherwise good and definitely worth the read even though the previous books are better. Not sure I'd buy the next book unless it was reduced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping!, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the whole serious and even if he stories aware a bit out there they are well written and absolutely gripping. You just can't put the book down before you know the end of the story!

I can't wait until the next book gets published.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you've read the others first...., 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...this book seems a little lame once you've read the previous books as this one takes you back to the beginning of Patrick Bowlers career so the end of the story is known.

It's not bad though, I'd just recommend to read it first.

4.0 out of 5 stars gripping - for some strange reason..., 10 May 2013

This review is from: Ninepins (Kindle Edition)
It's not the most exciting topic or read but, nevertheless, intriguing. The further I read the more I wanted to know about the characters and their past and future.

4.0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for the ending, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't put it down so very disappointed with the - more than - unrealistic ending. Interesting to read some of the views on pedophilia that got me thinking.
