2.0 out of 5 stars Pointless experiment, 9 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Spy Sinker (Hook, Line & Sinker Series) (Paperback)
I have just finished GSM, Winter and HLS in that order, and found them all to be excellently written except this last. The point of this book seems to be to clear up what was really happening behind the scenes, when a large part of the mystique of the Samson novels was the uncertainty as seen from Bernard's perspective surrounding events as they unfolded. This book drags all the boring cardboard characters centre stage and forces us to listen to their mundane inner thoughts and feelings. All for the purpose of explaining things that are better left to the reader's imagination.

I could imagine this book being a petty attempt to cash in on the success of the other books were it not the third in a trilogy, and therefore planned from the start. This is a failed pointless experiment in creative writing. It should not have been attempted, and it detracts from the other excellent books in the series.

Feeling charitable, I just hope FHC restores my faith in this series.
