Customer Review

on 27 April 2010
I really enjoyed the other books from these writers but the latest offering is well below standard. It feels rather like they had a good idea and then rushed to meet a deadline. The editing is sloppy and my (hardback) copy has dozens of typographical errors including a stray "I" and additional apostrophes - things not picked up by a standard spell check. However, the greatest problem is the clunky dialogue which is lots and lots of "cop speak" without any real purpose - it neither illuminates character nor advances the plot - it simply makes the writers look like they had run out of ideas and were filing up pages. There is a very odd plot in the middle where bombs are placed around the city and which seems to be treated as a bit of a joke by everyone, including those making the arrests. The "bad" guy, who isn't really so bad, is obvious from the second page and the plot has holes in it big enough to drive a truck through. A new character, Agent Smith, could be really interesting but is not allowed time to develop and the Monkeewrench people are not given enough space or time to make us interested in them again. I am fed up with this happening. Established writers trade on their names and make money out of those who enjoy their work by churning out rubbish. Their editors should have spent time editing and should have sent this one back for a serious re-write. I hope they can do better next time.
