3.0 out of 5 stars Lazy effort, 17 Sep 2011
I do hope that Mr Mariani is not going the way of Patteron, et al, ie create a blockbusting character and then cash in with lazy plots, lazy writing and characterisations which are unworthy of previous efforts. The book entertains, I would not argue that, but compard to all his earlier efforts it has all the hallmarks of late delivered manuscript rushed together either to meet a publishers deadline or a late mortgage payment. Ben Hope deserves better than this Mr Mariani so please remember the people who have put you where you are now, us, and try harder next time.

Perhaps learning at the feet of the very lazy Patterson who appears to do little but produce skeleton plots for other people to flesh out for him has led to this. This book would measure some 250 pages in a normal font size and, I'm afraid to say, the twists and turns were telegraphed to an extent which made it laughable.
