Clayburn going undercover to try and track a female serial killer,
seemed a bit different, so I gave it a whirl.
And I wasn't disappointed.
I found it easy to get right into Lucy's character, as she was so ultra
keen to do well after her awful start.
The action was well set and believable.
And there's an interesting surprise near the end, which I wouldn't dream
of mentioning here.
Just go and enjoy this nicely paced little thriller, and at the end you
will feel nicely entertained.
Five stars: completely exceeded my expectations and would highly recommended
Four stars: better than expected and would probably recommended
Three stars: met my expectations with no hidden surprises or shocks
Two stars: below my expectations and probably wouldn't recommend
One star: completely below my expectations and certainly wouldn't recommend
Having been a Paul Finch fan for years, I eagerly pre-ordered this and have only just finished it. And to be perfectly honest... it's nothing particularly special. Apart from a new heroine, this might as well be a Heck book it's so formulaic from Finch's earlier works. Endless chases by a superhuman protagonist along with overly descriptive settings that made me skip entire paragraphs - it's all in here padding out the page count.
I've read all Finch's novels in order since first discovering him a few years ago but it pains me to say he's an author on a slippery slope with diminishing returns. I'd like to see something truly new, not just a new hero/heroine treading identical paths. It's not as dull as Dead Man Walking but nowhere near the heady heights of Stalkers and Sacrifice. Were this a movie it would be The Transporter episode Six only now without Jason Statham as the highly enjoyable but utterly brainless lead...
Overall, it's simply average and I've come to expect more from a once very enjoyable author.
The themes in this book don’t shy away from the grimy darkness that lie on our streets, but you may want to take a torch with you when you walk them alone … I was seriously sitting on the edge of my seat as I rapidly turned the last hundred and fifty pages.
Lucy Claybourn is a cop that I look forward to reading again and I eagerly await her career developments. More, please, Mr Finch!
