A good ride

This book is getting some pretty bad reviews and I don't know why. These two authors write fast paced, well researched action novels. And they do it pretty well time and time again. The novel is not perfect but the character, Crew, is engaging and a joy to follow. ...
This book is getting some pretty bad reviews and I don't know why. These two authors write fast paced, well researched action novels. And they do it pretty well time and time again. The novel is not perfect but the character, Crew, is engaging and a joy to follow. You can tell the love that the authors have for both Holmes and Bond and they show such joy in writing these adventures. These two are still some of my fav story tellers in the genre. More of Pendergast, and yes! More Gideon Crew please.

A Corpse For Sure

On page 293 the authors write: "There was an air of desuetude, even abandonment." And they were so right, I could feel it myself. Hundreds and hundreds of readers abandoning this novel before they finished it.

It was around page 138 that I began to think of abandoning it myself,only to then be rewarded with a few pages of Gideon and his partner having dinner. They were having kidneys, but the partner didn't want to eat them. Then he did, and guess what? He liked them. Yes, indeed, this is quite a thriller I am reading. For some odd reason, I finished the book, although I admit to glossing over some pages. It's really boring, and not much of interest happens after the first few pages. Even the big scene toward the end is a letdown. People were getting shot and I was saying "Hey, over here. Put this book out of its misery!"

    Disappointing

    While Gideon grows as a character the plot line and general premise was a bit unbelievable coupled with unlikely resolutions to some of the obstacles presented to Gideon. A bit of a disappointing sequel

    Fooled me twice. Shame on me.

    I was so disappointed withe the first book I figured it had to be a fluke. P&G are to good to put out two awful books in a row. Well I was more wrong than I ever imagined I could be. The second was just as awful as the first. I listened to this on audiobook during my commute and was so completely bored I would find myself daydreaming about...well anything! Gideon Crew needs to sent of into the sunset or better yet, killed in some horrible, awful way that will make me feel better about having wasted dozens of hours of my life on these books that I will never get back.

    Bookworm

    The science was interesting, but the plot was pretty ridiculous. I also began to wonder if the authors were in a contest to see who could use the most obscure words....over and over again! Like the vast majority of very successful writers, Lincoln and Child seem to have reached a point where no one truly edits their work anymore. A pity; this could have used a fearless editor!
