4.0 out of 5 stars Quick read
Totally enjoyable, easy and yet fast paced, could even of been extended into a longer story. Well worth a read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will `Vanish' from my Kindle.
How to cram a story into 100 pages and fail. There are too many characters introduced in almost machine-gun fashion; some of them have relevance, some not, and that's annoying if not down-right confusing. Additionally, all the characters are stock figures. By the end of chapter 3, the main character remains a characterless journalist with an aunt who has a German...

1.0 out of 5 stars Will `Vanish' from my Kindle., 14 Dec 2013

How to cram a story into 100 pages and fail. There are too many characters introduced in almost machine-gun fashion; some of them have relevance, some not, and that's annoying if not down-right confusing. Additionally, all the characters are stock figures. By the end of chapter 3, the main character remains a characterless journalist with an aunt who has a German shepherd. The journalism and detective work left me cringing. Sorry, try any big-name detective author and you'll agree.

I only lost 77 pence on this one. An easy lark for making money out of woeful short stories which should be sold as a set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different but good, 21 Jan 2014
This review is from: Vanished (Kindle Edition)
I didn't expect the story to go as it did. from the front cover I thought it was going to be a serial killer novel but it wasn't. it was a very touching and quite sad story and thoroughly enjoyed it!

An ok read, not really any intrigue. I finished the book in a couple of sittings. Not as good as I'd expected.

This is a very well written book with good twists taking you in different directions with suspects who you think 're guilty but are not but keeps you guessing right unroll the end I would recommend this book

2.0 out of 5 stars Strange, rushed writing style, 28 Nov 2013

This review is from: Vanished (Kindle Edition)
Whilst the "bare bones"of this story were good, I found the writing style dreadful. Skipping months or years with a continuing paragraph made the novel seem rushed and the characters shallow and insubstantial.

It's almost like reading a draft concept for a book rather than a completed piece of work.

Disappointing.

it was okay. a quick read, but seemed to skip and was bit disjointed. could have been padded out more and the characters introduced better.
all in all, a good story.
