If there is to be a new adventure for Dillon i think the plot has to be better , the characters developed , the scenes updated and the plot has to be miles better.
Higgins has lost his flair for snappy dialogue. In this book the characters barely talk to each other in anything other than a matter-of-fact, "get in the van, Billy!", way and the dialogue is boring and repetitive. People are always meeting to discuss "the situation" or phoning to update someone else on "the situation" and so by repeating what has happened Higgins simply burns pages without bothering with any decent twists and turns in the plot. Several times someone says something and Higgins writes "After that there was simply nothing to say." That could be the motto for this entire book, and certainly the Dillon series: as drama, the series and characters have nothing left to say. Annoyingly this refrain suggest that Higgins himself doesn't actually care anymore; if he did, he'd find his characters something interesting to say.Read more ›
Buy his earlier paper backs for a good read and value for money.
The entire book is a perfect example of the worst kind of formulaic writing. The characters are so lacking depth they are 2 dimensional at best. The book lacks any kind of descriptive writing, the "action" when it occurs is clumsy and simply unrealistic. In fact, the whole thing is just awful. The story jumps around between a myriad of "characters" to create an illusion of fast paced action, but simply becomes irritating instead.
Has the feel of a book that was produced simply to meet the demands of a contract whereby the author had to produce a certain number of books for the publisher.
If it was possible to give it zero stars I would.
