3.0 out of 5 stars A competent thriller, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Altered Life: The exciting debut of the gripping Sam Dyke detective thriller series (Sam Dyke Investigations Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Sam Dyke is a very likeable, intelligent private detective. The story begins with the murder of Sam's latest client, the dynamic, ruthless head of an apparently thriving business consultancy. Sam's investigation of his late client's murder has enough twists and turns to keep you reading through to the action-packed end. Although I enjoyed the story, the sharp, clever dialogue and the strong characterisation, I nevertheless found my attention wandering from time to time. At first, I couldn't put my finger on why this was happening but then I realised the book never really explains exactly what a business consultant does. Because of this, there was a lack of tension surrounding the business aspect that never really picked up at any time. Once the author began to stray into the realms of transactional analysis to explain a character's motivation, things fell apart a bit although they did pick up again in places. I certainly feel that Sam Dyke is deserving of his own series as there is plenty of scope for him in the future.
