Can intelligent people really be this stupid?
on 19 March 2013
Once again, author Simon Wood has delivered an excellent chase thriller, with likeable protagonists and fairly plausible villains. The story moves at a breakneck pace, with action set-piece following set-piece as the hero and his companion attempt to discover the truth behind a series of suspicious deaths connected to an engineering company.
Unfortunately, to ensure the main characters remain in constant jeopardy, the author has them refuse to divulge key information to the police. The reasons given for this choice seem weak and poorly reasoned for two supposedly-intelligent characters and jar against the otherwise excellent story.
However, this is the third of Simon Wood's novels that I have reviewed and I can say honestly that I am very much looking forward to the next opportunity.
