Excellent film - but then it is Johnny Depp, what more can you say. Really enjoyable and highly recommended. A good story and a good laugh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only managed to read 16% of this book as it is boring. Constantly repeating information already given; A tells B what happened, then B tells same to C, then witnesses tell the same story. Also don't like all the slang used - just my personal preference. Good job it was a free download, don't think I'll read any more by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Storyline is okay but the fact dreams were used to progress the story??? The detective also "sees" things that aren't there? (a skull in the fridge for one thing)Sorry, doesn't work for me - unrealistic. And a constantly crying detective who loves his family dearly one minute and the next is in bed with another woman? I also found parts boring which don't move the story forward at all (a whole chapter on a day with the wife and kids)

This review is from: Gingerbread Man (Kindle Edition)
Managed to read 78% but it was obvious where the story was going and I wasn't interested enough to continue. A fairly good story but it didn't make me want to keep picking the book up and reading it. Glad it was free.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a lot better, 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Three stars for the storyline as it was a good story, but the writing style etc has put me off reading this author again. Changes to the Point of View (POV) was irritating, I had to keep checking on who it was who was speaking or who's thoughts we were looking at. Also some of the thoughts/descriptions were too long winded so skipped a lot of it. I also wonder if such a mentally deranged psycho would be so clever as to outwit the police so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read, 2 Sep 2013

I chose this novel because of the author. I had read his previous novel, Stalkers, and found that an excellent read and expected/hoped this one would be as good, and I have to say it definitely was. A page turner that keeps you interested throughout. Fully recommended.

Another great book from this author. Interesting characters and a really good read. As per other reviews, one of three books best read in order, although I didn't and still found them all very good.

Another really good read from this author and highly recommended to all crime readers. A page turner, which is something I want in a book. The story was well written and not spoilt by typos etc.

I found this an excellent read and would recommend it to any crime reader. It is about crime and not sex, so don't be put off by the title if you are worried about having to read any 'erotica' in it. It was a book I wanted to finish and find out how it ended.

I didn't find this book at all as interesting as I expected. Only managed to read 15 percent of it before deleting it. Not a page turner. Maybe it got better further into the book but life's too short to waste any of it reading on and on only to find it doesn't get any better.
