I've read and loved all of the Elvis Cole books and both Pike books. I'm done with Crais until Elvis is brought back. This book is cumbersome, dull-everything the Cole books are not. I can see where some would like it but not me.
This is an intriguing tale of a small Ga town. It is an accurate presentation of small town racial issues and political maneuvering. Plus it introduces Will Lee my new favorite character
All I knew about Custer was from the movies. This 16 hour book was perfect for my 1,100 mile trip. It is an excellent book which told the entire story from all sides. Very informative about logistics and tactics and the major participants. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the time period
This book is awful. I'm a big fan of the fighting sail books and have read all of O'Brian as well as several of Bond, Grundner, Russell and Stockwin. In the other books you can always learn something of history, sailing, navy life, tactics, gunnery - even weather. There was nothing in this book. The plot was weak, the characters uninteresting and the battle scenes silly. It might as well have been classified as a romance novel. I wish I could get my money back.
The book is predictible, boring and at least twice as long as it needs to be. I only finished it because I paid for it. Its Randy Wayne White gone bad. Maybe Rapp will turn out to be Doc Ford.
George Guidall is awful.
I've read or listened to all of Connely's books. The reason I like him is his realism and attention to detail. I like Harry B because he is not a super hero, just a tough, dedicated guy that gets the job done through hard work. Finding a specific room in a Hong Kong hotel through the reflection in a window from a cell phone picture is just not believable.
I'm a RWW fan but this one fell short of the mark. The usual interesting insights but the plot was weak and the narrator sleep-inducing.
