Worth a read
on 23 July 2014
This is generally a light-read crime book that isn't too taxing on the old noggin, lots of action etc. It's not a bad read, but I did struggle with a few things which stopped me from enjoying it as much as I could've.
I found it hard to believe that Gabe could be so disaster-prone without getting killed and while still remaining professionally credible, or that he could break so many rules without getting busted. Bombs and a stalker, reckless driving, a beating, breaking and entering whilst drunk!, involved in death by misadventure whilst drunk!, stashing confidential info, attacking a colleague, leaving makeshift offensive weapons around...I would've sacked him long before the last page!
Another thing that bothered me was the formatting of the book, not sure if it was just my kindle but there were a lot of separate lines as statements to give emphasis.
Almost every other page.
It was a bit much after a while.
I did like the friendship between Gabe and Jack, and over all the book is well-written and easy to read.
Summary: Worth a read, why not!
