4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed
This was my first meeting with Leopold Blake and I will be looking at others in this series. Enjoyable, action packed thriller with just a hint of romance. A fast paced good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frederick Forsyth This Ain't
The plot staggers from one indiscriminate killing to another. The main male characters are all super heroes adept at close combat body wrecking techniques and amazing skills with lethal weapons. Only poor Gerard succumbs to his wounds. The female characters provide some sort of feminine interest but both ring hollow. Mary is shown to be as competent as Cagney and Lacey...

This review is from: Wanted (A Private Investigator Series of Crime and Suspense Thrillers, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The plot staggers from one indiscriminate killing to another. The main male characters are all super heroes adept at close combat body wrecking techniques and amazing skills with lethal weapons. Only poor Gerard succumbs to his wounds. The female characters provide some sort of feminine interest but both ring hollow. Mary is shown to be as competent as Cagney and Lacey combined, a somewhat unrealistic creation for a reader to swallow. Leopold is an unattractive person, arrogant, selfish, impetuous, domineering --- all to a fault.
With no-one to like, no-one to care about and no plot of any importance, the book only offers a time wasting experience. As such it is not recommended.

Good read overall. The only thing that I didn't like was that there were too many characters who didn't have strong positions in the overall plot.

I've read a lot of free boots and many have left a lot to be desired. This was the exception. Excellent read, would recommend.

I really enjoyed this book. The chapters are short which I like. The story is well written and thought out. It's action packed and a definitely page turner. It ends with quite a shock, I wouldn't call it a cliffhanger as such, but it definitely makes you want to read more about these characters. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Felt it was a very ordinary book----average story line and I don't think I would go so far as to recommend it to anyone_____there are many better novels available for reading.The constant misuse of the apostrophe for possession I found annoying---e.g. Harris' is wrong and should be Harris's,the same applies to Dubois.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fasted paced thriller, 18 Oct 2014

This review is from: Wanted (A Private Investigator Series of Crime and Suspense Thrillers, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I quite enjoyed this book but found that there was a second thread running through it which didn't appear to have any direct connection to this particular story. Although, it obviously leads on to the future. To be honest I'm not sure that if I read another book in the series I would remember enough of the other thread.

2.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of action but little else to recommend it, 24 Aug 2014

This review is from: Wanted (A Private Investigator Series of Crime and Suspense Thrillers, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Plenty of action but hardly realistic or even plausible. The characters were two-sided at best and wholly predictable. The epilogue read like a last-ditch attempt to retrieve something meaningful from the rubble of the action. Disappointing, really considering what it had going for it at the beginning.
