Well this man came with cudos, but I didn't get it.
It lacked tension for me and I wasn't desperate to turn the pages to find out what was going on.
The copper was a good character, but his back story came right at the end and the main man, the civilian having one hell of a day was flaky. The original hook, a best friend is murdered on the phone and this guy has time to pack his kids stuff but not call the police, doesn't seem real.
And I can't give away the ending because there wasn't one, suffice to say the bad guys won and the good guys got to live another day.
I am going to try another story. I'm curious, the writing was good enough, for me to give his second book a try.
So I'm flaky too.
It is quick paced, interesting and convincing - the characters are believable, although I believe there is one glaring mistake in the plot - but I won't ruin it for you.
If you enjoy crime solving novels and don't want anything heavy, this is probably for you.
The book has two main characters; Tom Meron is the completely innocent victim who is hunted by the criminals and the police simultaneously, and DCI Mike Bolt of the National Crime Squad who leads the police investigation and hunt for Meron.
The structure of the book is unusual, the chapters seen from Tom Meron's point of view are written in the first person, but those for DCI Bolt in third person, a device that works extremely well as it changes the pace of the novel from frantic for Meron to challenging and baffling for Bolt, this device also helps to develop their characters, build tension and increase our involvement.
The chilling ex Bosnian mercenary Lench who is hunting Meron on behalf of a shadowy powerful business figure is a memorable villain.
As in all the best thrillers nothing is what it seems and everybody is lying.
That apart, decent enough plot. Ordinary writing. A bit like eating a couple of Cadbury's flakes in one go. Enjoyable while it's happening, but not very satisfying once you've finished.
The synopsis of the story caught my attention straight away so I thought I'd give it a go and asked for it for my birthday to read on holiday recently. So, I'm at the airport, a bit bored, and thought I'd start it (I almost forgot to put it down when I had to show my passport and flight ticket). During the 4 hour flight to Cyprus I completed about 90% of the book and finished it whilst sunning meself beside the pool the next day.
It's the first time I've actually been totally gutted to finish a book, I just wanted it to carry on. The story is intensely gripping, the characters are fantastically identifible and, just like many other reviewers have already said, the pace of the book is just non-stop. It would make an amazing film as it contains plently of intrigue, mystery and several great twists which constantly keep you guessing.
I really loved this book and would recommend it anybody, even those that don't usually go for crime novels, or in fact, reading in general. I enjoyed it so much, I've just ordered Kernick's first 2 books, and will soon be getting his next novel "Severed" aswell.
Top stuff indeed!!
Basically how not to write a crime story with poorly developed characters, full of stupid cliches and a disappointing ending. What more could you ask for in a very poorly written novel. Hardly deserves even one Star.
So absurd and difficult to go along with, that I had difficulty even finishing it.
