A poor book,
This review is from: The Malice Box (Hardcover)
As with many correspondents i feel that this book is marketed in one way, but is in reality something quite different.
I expected a fast paced adrenaline inducing yarn rattling through the streets of Manhattan and instead i found a snooze inducing yawn plodding around a number of well known tourist sites.
The plot is complicated and has no continuity, the characters are poor, you just don't care about them and their motivations are contrived to say the least.
The marketing blurb highlights a series of trials, these trials are less trying than my attempts to build a 3 tier house of cards. All in all it just doesn't flow and i would recommend spending those precious hours of your life on something more rewarding.
