Must try harder,
This review is from: The Dummy Line (A Jake Crosby Thriller) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This did not really work for me. The plot basically revolves around a man and daughter who go hunting, are in the wrong place at the wrong time and have an altercation with a group of local yobs. This then develops into a woodlands based hunt where the man has to do everything in his power to protect his daughter and himself.
Whilst reading this, I found myself thinking i've read this kind of story before. I did not find the plot particularly original. The main protagonists do not come across menacing enough, and the police department are a collection of fictional cliches; Incompetent, disorganised and just not realistic. There were also some major holes in the development of their response, something I found particularly annoying.
All in all a disappointing read.
