Another of the Sid Halley novels by Francis. This time Sid falling love to a woman with brains and courage to match him, but fortunately Francis doesn't let a romance interfer with a great mystery. His villians are just as evil as ever and the plot is well constructed. This time he shows us the world of genetic science in addition to the seamy side of British horse racing.
SOmeone who has never enjoyed a Dallas book.
Absolutely - this was an aberation.
Susan Erikson is the voice of the In Death series.
all of it.
I liked hearing about the characters in a new plot.
but there were dropped threads and shoddy attention to detail. The duo need to hone their partnership style.
The style should improve. The first Dick Francis/Felix Francis novel was not as good as usual too.
Well crafted, good characterization. It is Lee Child at his best and that is very fine indeed..
I like the characters and the thread of the plot about Matt's personal life was ok - the main story line was disjointed and unbelievable. Poorly written. It feels as if Mr butterworth does not yet live up to his father's skill and craftmanship.
This was even better than the other Charlaine Harris series. Well read. Next book in the series is due in October, I am very ready. I buy almost nothing in hardcover, but this series is worth it. Just a super listen, too. The characters are believable even if you wonder about their special abilities. The voice is smooth and certain, Good read. Solid plot.
I am a great Clancy fan and Hunt is Clancy in the prime. Unfortunately, the reader mispronounces the occasional word and his accents are terrible. All those characters and only three of four accents and some of those incorrect for the character described by the author. The pacing is just a little off. The emphasise was wrong some times. The flaws were just enough to be grating and drop a 5 star listen down to 3.5. I will look for Mr. Charles as narrator and pass the book by, no matter how good a bargain.
