When I began to read Dead Simple I thought the story was familiar and I suspected that I would be disappointed but then came the first twist, then another and another. I liked the detailed descriptions of the police buildings, procedures and even the banter, but then I like Steven Donaldson! As I live in Worthing, only 12 miles from Brighton where the action is set (mainly), I also enjoyed visualising the locations as the story developed. The ending was convenient, so slightly disappointing, and I was left wondering whether the money was recovered or whether that would be in the next book - I intend to find out.
The writing is fine, excitement and suspense to a high order
The crime is solved by psychic power (really!) and the very nasty sadistic ruthless baddy is trying to get away in a (well written) car chase, he's drinving across a bridge and then he sees a child on a bike in the way, and suddenly he shows a conscience and swerves to avoid him. The other baddy suddenly phones the police to give them a clue (the text message). What, why.
I only paid 49 so I probably got my moneys worth but don't expect a masterpiece.
