    As boring as they come

    A very bad Agatha Christie attempt

    Stopped reading after 75 tough pages

    This could have been written in half the pages. He goes off on descriptive tangents that are boring and irrelevant.
    I've read all of Feists books and the collaborations don't usually measure up.

    Waste of Money

    I like most of his books. Riftwar saga #1 was excellent. Also this was copyright 2002

    Not worth the time

    I am a big Raymond E. Feist fan and have read all his books but this one is, in my opinion, horrible. I believe it is due to is collaboration with author S. M. Stirling because his other books in the Legends of the Riftwar series are really good but this one can be skipped. There is no reason to waste your money buying this book because it is an independent story. The book is really slow, the plot is horrible, and the end is predictable. Nothing really happens until the last quarter of the book.

    There are plenty of enemies for mercenaries to fight including the goblins, Bugs and the Tsurani who came from their homeworld to Midkemia through a rift in space. The Tsurani prefer not to fight in winter so Kethol, Durine and Pirojil, mercenaries who are brothers in arms are on the city watch in LaMut until the swordmaster Steven Argent takes them off their regular duty and reassigns them to protect the Military Bursar Baron Morray who has had one too many accidents. ---- They do an excellent job protecting him from a Tsurani attack and escorting him and the wife to Lord Mangreen to Mangreen¿s home and then ushering them both safely back to LaMut. Drawn in against their wills into the lord¿s affairs, they are offered permanent jobs as captains to keep the peace. When a winter storm leads to anger and flared tempers, a double tragedy occurs the trio are determined to find the killer and avenge the deaths of the victims. ---- The three protagonists are loyal to each other and others want to use their strength of joint purpose for their own ends. It is fun watching them try to avoid assignments that the powers demand they do. Readers get to see a world in a medieval stage of development but magic works and other races such as dwarves and goblins exist. They also see the political intrigue that was common in medieval England. MURDER IN LAMUT is one sitting reading experience that once finished readers will place on their keeper shelves. ---- Harriet Klausner
