It was a good read, fast paced and was filled with twists and turns throughout the book. There were parts which I found very graphic. I was shocked at the ending, however it is a great setting for the next installment in the series.
I liked the writing style in the book and I found it was an easy book to pick up and put down, whenever a few spare minutes allowed and therefore it would make a great holiday read.
In this book, Ryan and Ty are asked to work for famous adult movie actress Raven Lane. Raven is lusted after by many people across the world and has an army of fans, however, when a headless corpse turns up in the boot of her car she feels compelled to get Ryan and Ty in for her private security.
Before long what seems like a simple stalking case gone wrong, turns into a horrific crime spree by what looks like a cold blooded killer.
Sean Black is now on his third book and you can tell that he is pushing himself and the book came across even better than his first two. The book is very fast paced, and this is a lot easier to read as things start off relatively simple but before long the pace picks up and you are thrown along with the characters as things progressively get worse.
The one major difference between this book and his previous is that the murders and crime scenes are a lot more graphic and descriptive. In my opinion this made the book a lot better because you then start questioning who is on the right side of the law and who isn't. There are quite a lot of twists and turns too and I must say that I was shocked and saddened by the ending. Although shocked, it is an absolutely first class platform for the next book which I cannot wait to get my hands on. Sean Black is certainly coming into his own in this genre and I think this is his best yet, I can only hope that they continue to be this good.
I was looking forward to this as I am a big fan of the Ryan Lock stories and this book did not let me down.
Set in LA, Lock is hired to protect Raven Lane a porn star, erotic dancer and hire girl for the rich. She has a stalker and things start getting scary for her and as the police cannot offer the protection she wants, she hires Lock to protect her and her brother.
The characters are convincing and the depth of story is good. You understand the characters and their reactions as events unfold. There are twists in the story, which is graphic in some parts, and there was a surprise ending for fans of the series. Parts of the story refer back to the other 2 novels, but you do not need to have read them to enjoy this story. I did not want the story to end.
Sean Black is a good story teller who keeps getting better with each novel. Can't wait until the next one.
What follows is an effective action thriller with a killer stalker and an ambiguous client. This area of the book works, but it all feels a little flat as if things never really get started. This is due to the final section of the book, which I cannot reveal details of. The events of the final 50 pages or so feel like the real reason that Black wrote this book and not the actual story of a porn star being stalked. It feels as if Black was always planning to conclude his third book in the same manner, no matter what preceded it. Therefore, the impact of the actual `story' is muted as it could have been anything. `Gridlock' is a passable thriller that undermines the series slightly by being two elements forced together a little uncomfortably.
