Customer Review

on 28 June 2011
I read the first three Bernie Gunter books many years ago but then lost him out of sight. I rather liked them, especially because of the atmosphere in the books. Because of the positive reviews I thought I'd give this new one a try. But I found it rather disappointing.
The plot becomes rather confused because of the countless jumps in time and place. But what I disliked most were the dialogues, or rather lack thereof. Several times Bernie gets beaten black and blue but that does not stop him giving his interrogators page-long uninterrupted lectures in totally unlikely wording in answer to their questions. Other characters, among them a hotel room maid, manage the same. This slows down your reading, makes the story incredible and, at least to me, overshadows the rest of the book and its qualities. That's why I stopped reading it about half-way.
