3.0 out of 5 stars Taken?, 3 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Toy Taker (DI Sean Corrigan, Book 3) (Di Sean Corrigan 3) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I read Luke Delaney's previous two novels with glee. I was instantly taken by the character DI Sean Corrigan, and the fact that Luke Delaney in reality is/was an experienced and seasoned policeman first with the Met., and then CID, which brought his characters and plot lines a gritty reality, and helped them to stand out from the many police procedural/serial killer novels that I, in general, read. So I was more than a little happy to get my hands on this, his latest DI Sean Corrigan story.
I would like to say that I enjoyed 'The Toy Taker', and for the most, I did. However for me, it lacked the excitement and compelling addiction of his previous novels, and was so predictable that I didn't need to read the last few chapters to find out how it would end.
As far as story line's go, this is quite a departure from the first two books, and perhaps I was expecting more of the same. Which more than likely makes my lack of enthusiasm more of a plotline criticism, rather than any fault on the author's part.
I haven't fallen out with Luke Delaney or his brilliant DI Sean Corrigan character, and will read any of his forthcoming books. I just found "The Toy Taker" a bit lack-luster.

Another honest well written review sir of a decent but flawed novel.
