|Shoot the works
"Shoot the works" by Davis Dresser (aka Bret Halliday) is good clean fun reading of the Mike Shayne series. I enjoyed the twists and turns of his writing and especially appreciate not having to undergo needless plot twists to stay ahead of the reader. posted Dec 5, 2013 at 12:16PM
|Massacre pond |
by Doiron, Paul
’Massacre pond" is a terrific thriller that explores lives and emotions on multiple levels. There is always the element of unpredictability to all crime: you know a crime has been committed but what is the sense to it? Paul Doiron is the C.J. Box of Maine but I believe Doiron is going to be a big name in his own write (like the pun?). posted Dec 4, 2013 at 1:53PM
|The highway : a novel |
by C. J. Box
This is beneath the talents of C.J. Box. He Box not had the phenomenal success of the Joe Pickett series and started out with "The Highway" I would tell him to hit the highway and not read another work by him. posted Dec 2, 2013 at 12:17PM
|The highway |
by Box, C. J.
Like millions of you I love the Joe Pickett novels by C.J. Box. But "The Highway" is just plain predictable and such claptrap that I have to put a thumbs down for overall review. Why does such a revered writer have to resort to another rendition of "girl kidnapped by sexual predator and has moments to live"? I do not want to read gore, sadism, and sickness of the human condition. posted Dec 2, 2013 at 12:14PM
|Gorky Park [videorecording] |
by Apted, Michael.
Gorky Park the novel was quite good when I first read it. Gorky Park the movie was also entertaining when I first saw it. But 30 years later the film has only one highlight and that is the performance by Lee Marvin. Would be star William Hurt was just a pretty boy trying to fill shoes way too big for himself. Perhaps it was poor screen writing but the film itself just can not add a single dab of pizzazz to the drudgery of Russian life. posted Nov 29, 2013 at 12:10PM
