I happen to be at Barnes and Noble and Mr. Ellis was speaking to a group of people. I do not usually pick up thrillers, murder mysteries, or crime novels. I decided to give his book a try and I was pleasantly surprised. The characters are magnificent. The plot wasn't predictable. He doesn't go in to long, drawn out descriptions and really gets to the point. He created deep, powerful characters with few words. I was a bit disturbed by the premise of the story - a man murders the man who murdered his sister - but I found it to be very easy to read. I tried to get his other books, but they were not available in the store (I ordered online). This is an author to follow.

As much as I liked the plot of The Hidden Man, the writing disappointed me. The author writes in a very workmanlike fashion- one word follows another, but there is little artistry or cleverness of technique. He has an annoying habit of starting multiple sequential sentences with "I." So, my hopes are that he will produce something with the same good plot line, yet show a little more creativity in portraying it.

    Good Read

    Although I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as his Eye of the Beholder, it was a great read that held my interest from beginning to end. I like this protagonist Jason and look forward to future stories featuring him. I kept wondering how he was going to get himself and his brother out of the mess they were in, not to mention his client. I really enjoy Mr. Ellis's writing style and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast-paced mystery/thriller.

    Very good, Jason is a very interesting man. I hope David Ellis writes more storys with Jason as the main character.
