3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..., 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Evils: Monkeewrench Book 6 (Kindle Edition)
As a big PJ Tracy fan, I have to say that this book was a let down compared to the other books in the series.

The book felt incredibly short with no real twists or turns but a very simple plot that was obvious from a mile away. Two Evils lacked the suspense and tension that was clearly evident in the earlier books and in the end it felt like a half-hearted effort.

All of the main characters were involved but there was no real character development but rather a rehash of the information a reader would already know if they read any of the previous novels. Whilst I can appreciate that introducing a character to a new reader is necessary to provide some sort of back story, it quickly became frustrating.

As much as I was looking forward to this entry into the series, the only word that can describe it is disappointing. I was annoyed to find out that it was released in mid-2012 in the US and for whatever reason, took an extra six months to be released in the UK.

Without going into a lot of depth about the plot (this is covered pretty well in other reviews), I would recommend that anyone reading a PJ Tracy book for the first time go look for one of the earlier entries in the series (Play to Kill is a great book). For others that have read the other books in the series, don't expect a great out of this entry. It feels like the authors just called this one in...

I agree with everything you have said about the plot and characters. Also definitely not as good as the early titles - the previous one about the snowmen was very disappointing too.
