If you ignore the frequent little issues, you'll be left with a good book. There are some great characters in the protagonist, Pete, and his eventual love interest, who are likeable, sympathetic, and very funny. I thought I'd figured out the plot early on, but still wanted to see where it went. I discovered that what I thought was obvious, was, but it was only the tip of the iceberg. If you're a fan of thrillers, The Undertaker would be a good choice for your next read.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
I throughly enjoyed The Undertaker - it kept me glued to the edge of my proverbial seat from the first chapter onward. Brown has a style of writing which makes the book flow, dragging you into the story. His characters were likeable & easy to relate to - even if you personally had nothing in common with them - & you find yourself rooting for them to succeed at all cost. The character of Peter Talbott was very well written & Talbott came across as a funny, sarcastic, pain in the ass kind of guy that we have all had as a friend at one time or another, which is perhaps why you can't wait for him to show up these people & make them pay for what they have done to him & to the memory of his departed wife, Terri.
My only argument with the book (and it is a minor disagreement) is that there are a couple of places where Talbott cracks jokes that I just didn't get & that really bugged me. The first time is when he checks into a Motel 6 & tells the Front Desk agent that "...Dave sent me & asked if they really left the light on..." It's obviously a reference to an advert(?Read more ›
Peter is a genuinely nice character. The whole thing is written from his point of view, which makes it really easy to feel close to him. He's clearly just an ordinary guy, stumbling across and getting involved in some pretty extraordinary stuff, so the fact that he has his flaws (such as struggling to get over his wife's death and move on to carry on the rest of his life) makes it all more realistic. He has nothing to lose by following his instincts, and in the way in which Pete feels scared and incredulous, yet compelled to investigate has been conveyed well and believably by Brown.
During his escapades, Pete meets and befriends Sandy, a younger girl who is also involved in the drama. Sandy is an equally likeable character, as she adds a youthful, feminine edge to the story and softens Pete up a bit! She's very feisty, but I personally wouldn't get along with her if she was real, as she's a bit too clingy for my liking! Nevertheless, I like the innocent edge she brings to the proceedings, whilst proving to be rather unexpected at the same time too!
I really enjoyed this story, as it was full of excitement and action, including an explosion, a car chase and a run-in with a gang of youths.Read more ›
The story is told form the perspective of Pete Talbott, a programmer who is recovering from the loss of his wife, Terri, to cancer. He is basically just trying to get by, but soon his life is thrown into chaos when a man puts a gun in his face and starts asking questions and Pete realises that somebody has been buried under his name as well as his late wife's. Angered by the use of his wife's name Pete decides to investigate and starts an adventure that uncovers corruption, murder, danger and along the way a little romance.
The plot is actually rather basic which does make the novel into more of a light read when you compare it to some of the more convoluted thrillers that are out there. Brown doesn't distract us with multiple sub-plots or red herrings, instead he concentrates on progressing the overall story in a pacey and enjoyable manner. If you do like the more complicated stories full of twists, sub-plots and characters then you may be disappointed, but I think this book makes a great read for on the beach or whilst travelling as it is fun, light and entertaining.
I found the story enjoyable as the thrills, humour and fast pace kept me coming back for more any time I tried to put the book down. The novel is also packed full of action and violence, however it isn't overly graphic and I don't think anyone will be offended by what they read.Read more ›
