2.0 out of 5 stars Review of Blindsided
Little depth of characters - 2 dimensional

Also didn't like the `joined at the hip ` story of the 2 main characters - better to have a bit more tension between them because of the job , their history etc

This review is from: Blindsided: A Mystery (Hardcover)
As law enforcement officials, Inspector Jane Andriotti and Kenny Marks risk their lives to serve and protect the public. At times, they may perform heroic acts, but like most police officers, the couple recognizes they are just performing their jobs as members of a unique club linked by the danger of their occupation. However, the relationship between Jane and Kenny goes way beyond that of comrades in arms They are lovers and the day they move in together, the brass assigns them to investigate the brutal murder of a former cop turned druggie.

The killer Jacques Carpentier served fifteen years of hard time. Back on the street, Jacques has a personal agenda to complete. Jacques plans vengeance on specific members of the SFPD. By the third murder, the police conclude a serial killer has targeted them for termination. Neither Jane, in charge of the case, nor Kenny has any idea who the perpetrator is or why he is killing cops and former cops. Though they jeopardize their lives doing their job, Jane and Kenny know they must stop the culprit before another person is found dead.

The taut story line with its switching locations and superb characterizations are so well written, it will blind-side the sub-genre by turning it into a new direction. The story line is fast-paced while Mr. Phillips' magically switches locales in an effortlessly manner that actually propels the plot forward. However, it is the humanization of the characters, who grow as they learn from their errors, that turns this thriller into a mega-chiller. Readers of BLINDSIDED will be obsessed to read Clyde Phillips' previous novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced, page turning, intense, action packed., 25 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Blindsided (Mass Market Paperback)
In the haze of a San Fransico heat wave, two cops find themselves on the hunt for a cop killer. One by one, fellow cops in the precint are targetted for gruesome murders and it becomes a race against time to catch the killer before he strikes again. The relentless, blood thirsty murderer relishes in their torment as they peice together the clues and gradually close the net on the ex-con with a grudge against the precint. The question is, will they get to him, before he gets to them?
An action packed, page turning classic tale of cop v. criminal, only this time its personal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, 17 Sep 2013

This review is from: Blindsided (The Detective Jane Candiotti Series) (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed reading this detective novel and can still remember the plot and the characters after a few weeks which is quite something for me as I do read quite a few novels in a week. Some of the "Americanisation" I found rather irritating at first, such as "wotcha got then?" and "what you gonna do now?", he hunched down", etc., but once I "got over this" I enjoyed the read and found I really liked the main characters. I liked the fact that co-existing with the main plot was the character backgrounds, family life, etc. which made it and the characters seem plausible. Difficult to leave at the end of chapter and not read on... and on. Would recommend to anyone who likes a detective story.

Well I don't actually love them....but they are reasonably readable, tolerably atmospheric of San Francisco, and were a great price. What's not to like?
