How is ANY intelligent person able to rate this book with 5 stars?...must be friends of the author and/or Quercus employees!
on 10 January 2017
I was able to continue plodding on reading this book until page 136. but put up with it for another 50 pages and then used it to light my fire! (I refuse to help to promote this guy's books to others)
Point 1.. the "hero" magically accessed his murdered brother's computer without knowing the passwords (p. 136)...he was even able to access all his emails etc., again without needing passwords...REALLY !!
Point 2.....the police had previously taken the dead brother's computer "in" for analysis but later they released it to his brother, our hero. I assume they had found nothing of importance.
BUT, our hero did....enough to send him off to Berlin and to continue his investigation.
Point 3.....the last straw was p.187 where our hero's house is broken into at 03.30 and two men re-enact the murder !!!! then they run away. Our hero calls the detective immediately but is told because nothing was taken, there was no assault the police were not interested....REALLY....(the house where a brutal murder had taken place)
Don't waste your money on this drivel...amateurish writing, unbelievable story, and ignore ALL those stars above one star....if ANY book were deserved a minus rating this would be IT...!!
